    Wonderful wedding 2022

    Mollie and team were fantastic to work with. Planning sessions were quick and effective, and Mollie asked great questions which really helped me think and plan with her. The tasting was fun and delicious! The day of staff were great and communicative. Loved having the entire floor rented as it allowed for privacy for us and our guests, multiple getting ready and/or quiet rooms, and space to move about. Food was absolutely delicious (highly recommend the chicken skewers and the ribeye steak!) and came out quickly! We had a few musicians amongst us, so the on-site piano was a sweet touch. Very thankful that we chose the campus club for our wedding venue. Thank you Mollie and team!

    Campus Club's reply:

    Thank you Heather! It was our pleasure to host your and Robert's beautiful wedding! You were all so fun and easy to work with! Best wishes to you!

    Best decision of our wedding

    Choosing the Campus Club as our wedding venue was easily the best decision we made all wedding! We loved that we had the entire 4th floor to ourselves and there were so many places for guests to enjoy themselves, from the beautiful patio, to the large reception room with amazing views of downtown Minneapolis, to the bar and various other nooks and crannies. Mollie was absolutely fantastic to work with and quickly answered any little question that we had for months leading up to the wedding. She also kept us up to date on the latest COVID restrictions (and it was very easy to pick a new date when we needed to postpone for a year due to COVID). They also coordinated pick-up and drop-off times with all the external vendors, so much so that we felt that we didn't need a day-of coordinator.
    Finally, the food! They do internal catering and feature farm-to-table food from local vendors. We and all the guests were blown away by the quality of the food, and many guests commented that it was the best chicken (the mustard-crusted chicken) or best steak they've ever had. The food tasted just as good on the day of the wedding (serving 100+ people) as it did during the tasting, and came out quickly and consistently. All in all, we had an amazing experience and would highly recommend the Campus Club to everyone!

    12/10 recommend Campus Club

    We are so pleased that we selected Campus Club for our October wedding. From the first email inquiry we sent to the Campus Club, we were impressed with the diligence, competence, and experience of the staff. The space worked well for us and our guests. There is plenty of space for everyone to spread out - the terrace, the dining room, the lounge area, and the bar. We had a variety to guests from kids to my 90 year old grandparents and everyone was comfortable. The views are stunning from every single one of the spaces! We had hoped that our ceremony would be on the terrace but it was unseasonably cold (and snowing) on our wedding day so we ended up having it indoors. We were initially disappointed but it worked out great to have guests sit at the dining tables and was really pretty. The space is nicely finished and requires very little decor to look pretty for a wedding - we only did centerpieces and cafe lighting and it looked great! This saved us a bunch of money too. The food was excellent and all of our guests’ dietary limitations were accommodated. Leading up to our wedding, we worked mostly with Jenn who is very organized and responsive and takes care of all the details we hadn’t thought of. She responded to every one of our (million) questions right away. On the day of our wedding, the managers and staff made everything run absolutely perfectly. These people really know what they’re doing. We couldn’t be happier about our wedding day. Thanks Campus Club!

    Campus Club's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review, Sarah. It was such a pleasure working with you and we couldn't be happier for you and Joe!
