Amazing Team all around!!
Highly recommend this venue!! I had such a great experience since the moment I booked with them. Diane who originally booked me was very helpful and answered all my questions in our first meeting. She got me in good hands with the catering team Carlos and Karla with Elegant Event Decorations and there wonderful staff and the rest was history. They were really patient with me, took care of all my needs, helped me with making last minute adjustments when needed and really brought my dream wedding to life. Thank you South End for making this day amazing!! You all rocked our socks! Love- The McLeodsSent on 10/16/2018

We just had a wedding reception at SouthEnd and everything more than exceeded our expectations. The reception room was transformed into a breathtakingly beautiful setting for our many friends and family members. We had close to 250 guests and a live band, all of which fit well given the spacious main party room and adjacent lobby area. Diane the banquet manager was a pleasure to work with, making great recommendations prior to the event and making sure event went smoothly on all counts. Elegant Catering did more than was expected for much less money than other like companies. Carlos the owner and his wife Rosa were easy to work with and took all the headache out of planning a truly 'one stop shop' wedding event. They took care of all the food (which was delicious), servers, set up, furniture, flowers and even provided us with a gold mirror dance floor to give the room the look of pure 'elegance' we were hoping for. The club has ideal parking, privacy and a setting that feel like you and your guests have been whisked away to an exclusive resort. All in our own backyard of Torrance... Thus our many local guests did not have to travel far to enjoy our special day. I would highly recommend you give this venue a visit for any occasion you are planning!Sent on 04/25/2016
