just blocks away from the Mission San Juan Capistrano, the train depot and the historic Los Rios District; the El Adobe offers an artfully restored historic setting, as well as a full range of services for your next event.

The Staff

Each Room

like those of a home, offers their own unique ambiance. The atrium-like Palenque Room seats up to 250 and features a ceiling that slides open to the sky. The adjoining Garden Patio offers additional outdoor seating for up to 200 guests. The Garden Patio is wonderful for a mesquite barbecue buffet; and features a small Chapel setting for wedding ceremonies. For smaller gatherings, the Portola Room, with its classic adobe architecture, stained glass windows, and vaulted wood ceiling, seats up to 36. The Las Flores Room offers a window view of the Veranda and Garden, and seats up to 50. The Cárcel, San Juan’s original ironed barred jail cell, now houses the wine cellar and offers private dining for up to 8 guests.
