Breathtaking views, excellent food and service!!Reviewed on 10/22/2014 Mai A
The Metropolitan Club exceeded my expectations! I had a small destination wedding in Chicago and had to plan all from outise Chicago, I was looking for a place with a beautiful view but also great food and service that would be affordable when I found The Metropolitan Club! Kelley was super helpful, understood my needs, she was very accesible since the begginning even though I wasnt in Chicago I was able to plan everything with her. I only got to Chicago two weeks before the wedding but by that time Kelley and I had everything planned out. on the wedding day I didnt had toworry of vendors going to the club since Kelley had already arranged everything for that day. The view was espectacular and had the chance to see the sunset! The food was deliciooouuus and the service also exceed my expectations! If you are thinking of having a wedding in Chicago you must look at The Metropolitan Club!
Exceeds ExpectationsReviewed on 9/10/2013 Stacy B
If you are looking for a wedding venue that has AMAZING city views, delicious food and exceptional customer service, do yourself a favor and book at The Metropolitan Club. Ashley Godinez, Director of Private Events, is amazing to work with; she is organized, prompt and accommodating. She and her staff worked tirelessly to make our wedding vision a reality. Wedding planning can be very stressful and her guidance helped bring down the anxiety. Our guests had a wonderful time and continue to tell us how they enjoyed the opportunity to go to the Skydeck (added bonus for our guests) and that the food was 'the best they've had at a wedding reception'. They also continue to rave about the view. Oh, that view. There are no words to express our gratitude to The Metropolitan Club for making our wedding beautiful, special and memorable.
The Metropolitan Club was above and beyond what we could ever hope for. The service from start to the final hour was outstanding. The food was superb! Thanks to Lorena, the evening was perfect !
We had a wonderful experience using the Met Club for our wedding and reception. We can't say enough good things about Lorena Mulvaney --she performed in an outstanding capacity as our private events director. She was extremely helpful, always prompt and responsive (especially to our millions of emails), and no detail was too big or small for her to handle! The food was terrific, the waitstaff all did a tremendous job (our guests even told us how great they were). Our wedding guests said over and over that it was the best wedding they had attended. Truly the most memorable day EVER!
I cannot say enough good things about the Metropolitan Club! From day one of touring the Club, my husband and I were in awe of what the Club had to offer! Lorena Mulvaney was our coordinator. Throughout our entire 18 month planning process, Lorena was so accommodating and wonderful to work with! Lorena was very prompt when responding to emails, and as future bride will come to realize, there will be a LOT of emails during the planning process! I was not once worried that the day would not go as planned! Lorena is on top of everything! We received so many compliments about how beautiful the room was, how amazing the views were, how great the food was, and how smoothly things were run! This would not have been possible without Lorena and her wonderful team! Thank you does not seem like enough! Our wedding will be a day my husband and I, along with our guests will never forget! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!!
If you want a unique, elegant, and beautiful view of Chicago, the Metropolitan Club should be your number one choice for your wedding venue. Sally Karney was our wedding coordinator. She was a pleasure to work with and was always available with any questions/concerns we had. On the day of our wedding, we were a bit behind schedule as we were still waiting on family members to arrive. Sally made sure to keep the day going as planned, as if we were on time. The food tasted amazing. The decor was very elegant. The staff were very attentive. And of course all of our guests were in awe with the view of Chicago from the 67th floor. The Metropolitan Club made our wedding vision come to life. We definitely recommend if to any newly-engaged couples looking for a wedding venue.
The Sears* Tower and the Club are special to our family, so deciding to have our wedding there was the easy part. Sally, our coordinator, made it even easier. Our wedding was small, intimate and emotional - the staff and Sally were amazing in ensuring those elements remained in tact throughout the evening. We added little touches up to the last day and the team had no problem making adjustments. Anytime we had questions or needed another walk-through Sally was happy to make herself available. The day of our wedding went smoother than we could have hoped. The bar wasn't open yet, but this bride needed a glass of wine and Aby found a way to make it happen! The room we reserved to get ready in was too hot due to the time of day, and the team easily moved us into another adjacent room that was much cooler, making make-up and hair a snap for all. Our bartender and service team were a delight throughout the evening and made each of our guests feel special - down to the chocolate tower treat for our kids. There was another female attendant in addition to Aby that I want to give special thanks to (so sorry I cannot remember her name!). She kept everything moving efficiently and was wonderfully patient with me - much appreciated. We wouldn't change a thing about our day.
The Metropolitan Club was a wonderful and magical place to have our wedding. Lorena was incredibly accommodating and was an absolute joy to work with, along with the rest of her team. The views were without equal and the space was complete with every amenity you could possibly want. Add that to the "wow" factor of being in one of Chicago's most iconic buildings and you've got a beautiful combination. Thanks!
There are not enough words to describe the entire wedding journey at The Metropolitan Club. We looked at many venues but the professionalism was top rate right from the first visit. The food, service and of course the view were amazing. Lorena, was the absolute best to work with. We had winter wedding and snow came down at the perfect time which just added more to the magical evening. I cannot say enough about every staff member, it is the hidden gem that is worth visiting.
We had the most amazing wedding here at the Metropolitan Club! Working with Ashley was so wonderful and stress free. She knew exactly what we were envisioning and made our dream wedding a reality. I couldn't have been happier! The food was so amazing, we got so many complements; a friend said he asked for seconds on the salad! Overall, we had the best day ever! Thank you Ashley and staff at the Metropolitan Club!
It isn't just our opinion that we had the greatest wedding, but all of our friends' and families' as well. The Metropolitan Club is such a special location which just feels like a great place to have a wedding. Every time we are driving into downtown or can spot the Willis Tower from the suburbs, we say "hey that's where we got married! Relatives from out of town were definitely thrilled to be in Chicago's tallest skyscraper to celebrate with us. Location and atmosphere aside, the food and service was equally outstanding. The planning was perfect by Lorena, who I cannot say enough great things about. I would recommend this venue to anybody that is looking for a place to have the perfect wedding and hope they all get to work with Lorena and the same staff that helped us.
We really wanted to highlight our city when we decided on a wedding venue, so we selected one of our favorite places, The Metropolitan Club. It was a fantastic decision. Lorena and the entire staff had everything under control, and I honestly felt like we were free to enjoy the evening, without a worry. We were able to add our own special touches to the space, and I watched Lorena as events unfolded, attentive to every detail to ensure things flowed smoothly. We had a blast, the food was wonderful, and the service was flawless. Our guests are still telling us it was the best wedding they have ever attended. It is worth noting, The Metropolitan Club is a welcoming space for all couples. If you are looking for a magical place in Chicago to host your family and friends for your special day, you owe it to yourself to have a look.
We used the Metropolitan Club for our wedding on 9/17/16 and couldn't have been happier with our decision. Lorena was our coordinator and was absolutely wonderful. She was always accessible, super helpful, and on top of things which is what you want when you're a bride and already have a million things to keep track of. Everything about our day was perfect and if anything went wrong, I had no idea. All of our details were executed exactly as we asked and turned out even better than we envisioned. The staff was extremely accommodating and our guests raved about the venue and the food especially. Everyone we spoke with could not compliment the food and the space enough. I wish we could do it all over again and would choose the Metropolitan Club every time!
When choosing a venue, we could not be any more pleased with the service we received from start to finish with Lorena Mulvaney at the Metropolitan Club. The Club welcomes prospective brides and grooms with an event table that has a binder of recent wedding photographs, and they tour you around the event spaces with a glass of champagne. They provide you a very helpful binder checklist, and any outstanding question (big or small) was promptly replied to by Lorena with complete understanding and professionalism. It was truly a seemless experience, and I don't know what I would have done without Lorena and the Metropolitan Club team. A very special thank you to her and Rick for going beyond the call of duty with our concerns, and providing us the best day of our lives. If we could do the day all over again, we would still confidently choose the Metropolitan Club and Lorena for our venue. Everything was top notch. Total satisfaction!
We wanted a classic room, ideally with some windows, and a classic Chicago location. The Metropolitan Club was absolutely perfect! The food was outstanding, the staff was attentive and friendly, the space was classic, and the VIEW! Ashley was wonderful to work with, and made the process a breeze. Plus the cost was really reasonable for a downtown location. Plus you can add the Sky Deck to your package, which our guests LOVED. We were so happy with our decision and highly recommend the Metropolitan Club!
5/5 Would get married there again! Our event coordinator Sally K. was outstanding. She was very helpful in all aspects of the wedding especially when dealing with the mother of the bride (no easy task). The views were spectacular and the venue was not your ordinary space. Food was excellent and service was great. The club accommodated special request for our event and really tailored it for us. They worked well with outside vendors. Everything went smoothly and the timing of all events was perfect. Couldn't recommend the Metropolitan Club enough. If you are searching for wedding venues in Chicago definitely call Sally you will not be disappointed.
Our day was perfect in every way - we had a wonderful venue coordinator (Ashley) who answered all questions and accommodated our needs in a timely manner. The day of our ceremony and reception everything could not have gone smoother. The food was outstanding, the wait staff professional and the views breath taking.
What a ViewReviewed on 9/29/2015
The Metroplitan Club was a great choice. The preferred vendor list was very helpful. (DJ and Photog). Wedding and reception came off with out a hitch. The staff was so professional and helpful. The food was outstanding and was delivered en mass per table. No one had to wait. Cake was excellent. Bartenders were fast and efficient. No one had to wait.
Gorgeous views and amazing foodReviewed on 11/20/2012 Erin S
I'm only giving the Met Club 4 instead of 5 stars because they have a serious problem with employment turnover. It was very inconvenient to have to constantly change Met Club contacts every few months. Due to the constant turnover, it also led to a breakdown in communication among the Met Club employees. Otherwise - everything was fabulous.
Amazing Venue, Service, and Experience!Reviewed on 10/23/2012 Lauren S
If I was planning my wedding again I wouldn't change a thing about having it at The Metropolitan Club. They didn't miss a beat, took great care of us and our guests and really went over and above. The food was incredibele. Everyone of our guests plates were empty and we received such compliments about the food and service. In addition to a great room we had a fantastic view of the city which was very special considering 95% of our guest were from out of town. I highly recommend hosting your wedding and or events at The Metropolitan Club. You will receive the royal treatement. The cost is very reasonable especially for the city and the value you get is tremendous.
Breathtaking Views, Amazing Service!Reviewed on 9/21/2012 Ashley M
We hosted our wedding reception at The Metropolitan Club and had an amazing experience! Such great feedback from Chicago as well as out-of-town guests. Kelly Rehmer, our Event Director, managed every detail including those we had overlooked, and the turnout was amazing. Kudos to Chef Greg and the service staff for an unbelievable meal (filet and halibut-out of this world), and the drinks didn't disappoint! Seriously a great experience that couldn't have gone better. Thank you, Metropolitan Club!
Mostly happyReviewed on 11/28/2011 Caitlyn C
The venue itself was stunning with a near panoramic view of the Chicago cityskape. The lights of all the surrounding buildings twinkled like candlelight in the windows. The food was excellent, all of my guests agreed, and the bar service was wonderful. My only complaint was the response time from my event manager. She was a little untimely and sometimes hard to get a hold of. If you're organized like me, it shouldn't be too much of a problem because you're used to squaring everything away yourself. However if you're someone who depends on your service providers to do everything, make srure you stay on top of them. Again, that was a small factor and did not impact my actual night- just the planning stages. Overwall, it was simply perfect!
Great VenueReviewed on 10/21/2010 Monica J
This venue was amazing. We had so many compliments from our guests. The room is very elegant and provides great views of the city. The staff is excellent, the food was great and the service was amazing.
good value, keep an eye on the staff..,Reviewed on 9/03/2010 Charlotte W
Overall, the guests really enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. We had the East Room of the metropolitan club on a Saturday in August. For the price, you can't really find a better value in the Loop. The price includes all linens, flatware, glassware and parking for your guests, so it really is a fantastic deal in my opinion. My only complaints are about some of the staff. Most of the servers were really friendly and attentive. The BARTENDER on the other hand placed some cash on the bar under a glass. I was outraged- we paid for an open bar and prepaid the gratuity for the entire night. I did not want my guests thinking they had to spend a dollar to be there- that's why they are GUESTS and we are the HOSTS. I had my mother tell the event coordinator that it was inappropriate and the bartender was reprimanded. He then apologized profusely and said he "didn't have time to put it in his pocket and forgot about it". Um, how about REFUSING the tip when someone tries to hand it to you? It was really upsetting. Be sure to stipulate from the beginning that this is unacceptable, otherwise the staff may try to get the better of you and your guests. I know I always feel awkward in situations like that- when I don't know whether and how much to tip- and I did not want my guests to feel that way. The Met Club charges a set gratuity in advance- if you want to give them extra, put it in your contract so the staff doesn't accept it from guests.
PerfectionReviewed on 8/09/2010 Laura G
I'm a tough critic and spent a ton of time researching venues for our wedding reception. The Metropolitan Club and the catering manager, Joe Flynn, along with the staff exceeded my expectations. What I loved most was the attention to detail, and fabulous service.
