The Monday Club in San Luis Obispo, California was designed by Hearst Castle architect Julia Morgan and constructed in 1933-1934. Julia Morgan designed the clubhouse to resemble a garden gazebo with an interior awning over the stage area.

The club itself is a non profit organization founded in 1925. By 1928, the club members numbered over 350 and were in need of a clubhouse. Through fundraising, they were able to purchase the property on Monterey Street in 1930. At that time, Miss Morgan was working with William Randolph Hearst on the design and construction of San Simeon castle. She agreed to to design the building.

En lieu of charging professional fees Miss Morgan asked if the membership would arrange for her room and board when she came to San Luis Obispo. Club members were delighted to help and took turns welcoming Miss Morgan into their homes.
