  • My wife's graduation ceremony was held in this place. It is an old ship repair yard converted into a pavilion . Very bright place. I was amazed by the huge space. Lots of parking. Beautiful surroundings. I am not sure why some of the schools hold their graduation ceremony in auditoriums in San Francisco and Oakland. They should use such open places.
  • Our company meeting was held here. Great views of the city and the water. We had the whole place. Nice set up which would be different for every group. Trouble was finding parking. The Pavilion is in the back but parking is in front. Really dark leaving. Good facility - check it out.
  • The Craneway pavilion is the shell of an old building with an interior that is devoid of any personality, comforts, or warmth. In it's current state, is better suited to store folding chairs and folding tables. It is a place to hold unimportant events.
  • Had lunch at Assemble, amazing food, I had The Riveter chicken sandwich, which was the perfect buffalo chicken sandwich and a Lagunitas IPA to compliment my meal. Great atmosphere and had a peaceful walk by the water after. Definitely recommend this spot.
  • This is a versatile venue that can be utilized for parties, wedding receptions etc...I went to an adult game night that was hosted here and it was so much fun!!
