When me and my wife were looking for venues, we definitely wanted something different. The Newark Club provides a lounge like feel with a view of the city, which you won't get at any other venue in the area. I may be a little biased but, this venue has the best food of any of... Read More the venues we have been to as guest. Our guests are still raving about the mac and cheese, turkey, and rueben sandwiches at cocktail hour and saying that the steak they had at dinner was the best they have ever had a wedding, You want the guest at your wedding to eat well, and it is guaranteed your guest will not leave hungry. Maria who was the main sales rep we dealt with and she is a ROCKSTAR. She was easy to communicate with and answered me and wife's million and half questions about absolutely everything. I know this is corny but we got the sense she cared about us and wanted to make the entire process as stress free as possible. She even met with me near my house to give her some stupid prop I had forgot to give her for the photo booth at our last meeting (FYI it was a lucha libre mask). She was absolutely EVERYWHERE on the night of our wedding, tending not only to me and my wife, but to our families making sure we had anything and everything we wanted. Oh and I HAVE to mention the bridal attendant, Cookie who is an absolute sweetheart. Cookie took care us of all night and was great with our families as well. The venue is the biggest decision any couple has to make when planning a wedding, and me and my wife could have not be happier we went with the Newark Club. We loved it so much we want some one else to get married there so we can actually sit and enjoy some of this food our guests loved so much. So, Cookie, Maria, and Harry, keep up the good work and thank you for all you did to make our night so much fun.

Thank you to Artie, Howie and Maria. I will be recommending you and your establishment for life.

We couldn't get enough raves from our guests on how delicious everything was. My go to person for all planning was Maria and she is really on point from scheduling to assisting in my time and action calendar. Communicating couldn't be easier. Once I gave her the info of all our vendors I didn't have to drive myself crazy with being the liaison between them. If we had to troubleshoot something in regards to the event or any other details that arose she was helpful in providing options to get a solution. All of the staff is great but since I spent majority of my time with Maria. I have to say she was my favorite. We definitely recommend you check this place out. You really do get everything for a swanky city chic event without paying all the inflated city prices.

My husband and I were recently married in June and held our reception at The Metropolitan Room at the Newark Club. When we started our search, all we knew was that we wanted something a little different with a modern feel. The Metropolitan Room was just one of many premier... Read More wedding venues we looked at in the area however we quickly realized that we had stumbled upon a hidden gem, in the heart of Newark. The Metropolitan Room is located on the 22nd floor of the Newark Club, only steps away from NJ PAC. The elegant ballroom boasts stunning views of the entire Manhattan skyline as well as downtown Newark and clients have the option of holding their cocktail hour in the marble corporate lobby. We opted for this set-up as we felt it ensured that both the cocktail hour and sit-down dinner portion of the evening were separate and unique experiences for our guests. That being said, while the views and non-traditional space definitely played a role in our final decision to book at The Metropolitan Room, both my husband and I were immediately impressed by the event coordinator we met with, Maria Phillips-Smith. At our first meeting, Maria spent two hours showing us the space and taking us through exactly what we could expect the night of our wedding. Anyone going through the process knows how overwhelming an experience planning a wedding can be. We can honestly say that from our first meeting until the very last moments of our reception, Maria was there to attend to every detail, question, concern, or wish we had. Maria quickly removed the anxiety that I first worried would be a part of the planning as I truly felt it was a collaboration between the three of us to make our event unforgettable and that the ultimate success of the evening was just as important to her as it was to us. Additionally, we received countless compliments on the food served during both the cocktail hour and dinner. As we learned in one of our many meetings with Maria, the Metropolitan Room hosts corporate lunches weekly for CEO’s and high powered business executives in the area. We were assured the food would be exceptional and we were not disappointed. It was clear the night of our tasting, which Maria hosted as a private dinner for ourselves and our parents, that our guests were in for a treat. Similarly Daryl, one of the bartenders, was nothing but friendly and eager to accommodate us another evening as we worked together to create the perfect signature cocktail for our event. We had timed the reception around sunset, which is a breathtaking time to be in the Metropolitan Room. As luck would have it, the day of our wedding poured and fog quickly settled around the top of the building. But I have to say the room itself looked so stunning that the weather quickly became a non-issue. Know that if you book here and it does happen to rain, the room will stand on its own. A nice touch added by my florist was to put tea lights around the entire perimeter of the room’s windows, which, in the rain, provided for an elegant and sublime ambiance. I cannot say enough about this venue. From the attention of the entire staff to the abundant and delicious food to the stunning views you will not be disappointed. It was clear from our experience that creating the perfect event is more than a job for those we worked with and that they truly care about their clients. Put simply, it was the wedding and night of our dreams.

Magical Moment at the Newark Club

The Newark Club is hidden gem located in the heart of Newark, NJ. The incredible views of downtown Newark and New York City in the distance will be sure to wow your guest, prior to seeing you in your wedding dress of course. When searching for a wedding venue I was sure I... Read More wanted the Newark Club. My wife and I attended a wedding there a few years prior and was extremely impressed by the venue. Since I was only the groom, the Bride and her Mother wanted to look at other locations. At the end, everyone came around to what I decided long ago; The Newark Club was the perfect place to host our family and friends for our wedding. My wife and I are not traditionalist. We were able to incorporate all the makings of an elegant wedding into a more contemporary setting. For starters the cocktail hour was a hit. Our guests still remind us how great cocktail hour was. We had food in the bridal suite, but even our wedding party, including yours truly was downstairs eating, and mingling with everyone. The food and the ambiance were outstanding. Be sure to remind your guest that the party hasn’t quite started, and dinner will still be served upstairs. How they manage to get everyone upstairs after an elegant and fulfilling affair is beyond me. Our guest walked off the elevator into a ballroom decorated to perfection. My wife could not have been any happier. Our Maître D, Artie, and his staff reached into my wife’s imagination and put it on display. Every detail was either exactly, or better than she what envisioned. I would be doing a disservice if I failed to mention how they put everything together due to a mishap on our part. We did not provide the staff with all our wedding favors and place cards in a timely matter. It didn’t matter; Artie and his staff were still able to make everything perfect. The amazing view, the staff, and the service we received from the Artie, and The Newark Club from the moment we called to schedule an appointment will always be a part of what made our wedding day special. Till this very day, 7 years and 4 months later, people still mention how much they enjoyed every aspect of our wedding. People still say how our wedding was the best they attended. Fortunately for me my wedding day was not the last time I encountered the service of the Newark Club. Everyone praised the food; especially the Venetian table and wedding cake. Sad to say my wife and I did not get to experience any of it as we were doing other things at the time. One year later our cake top was a disgusting, frozen mess, and I recommended ending that tradition. As a Valentine’s Day gift this year, I decided to surprise my wife with our cake, 7 years a few months later. I contacted The Newark Club the Monday before Valentine Day to see if I could have the top layer of the wedding cake remade. Artie reached out to me and staid “we can make it happen”. We really didn’t discuss the details until that Tuesday. Basically, Artie was instrumental in making sure I had my cake three days later. That “make it happen” attitude was present from day one, and 7 years later.
