Facilities and Capacity
Originally built in 1917, Fort Lauderdale Woman's Club has undergone recent renovations to lovingly restore the property to its former glory. This majestic venue was originally designed by Miami architect, August Geiger, in the Mediterranean Revival style which is still evident today. For an outdoor ceremony, the club provides its scenic garden area. The garden features luscious greenery and a gazebo which provides a natural focal point for your ceremony. Seating for your service can be set out on the well-maintained lawn and sets the scene for a romantic outdoor vow exchange. Indoors, an anteroom can serve as an ideal cocktail hour space before transitioning to the main reception room. The centerpiece of the main room is undoubtedly the restored stone fireplace which can be decorated to reflect your wedding color scheme and theme. Large picture windows allow natural light to brighten your celebration and offer picturesque views of the garden area. The main room can comfortably accommodate up to 130 guests for your special occasion. A catering kitchen is also located on-site, facilitating speedy service for your reception dinner. The property features Dade-County pine flooring throughout and spacious restrooms double as get-ready rooms for your event. Parking is available at the City of Fort Lauderdale County Lot, with group rates available upon request.
Fort Lauderdale Woman's Club is happy to welcome outside vendors to service your day. They also permit outside alcohol on the premises for your event. A range of event rentals is offered to enhance your occasion, including a Baby Grand Piano to add a musical element to your special celebration.

This is a beautiful and cozy place for a reception. It fits 100 people comfortably. We had 140 people and had to move 4 tables after dinner to storage to make a big dance floor. (It worked fine, for us!) The gardens in the side yard made an impressive cocktail hour. There is a faux fireplace with a mantle that can be decorated. The front porch has a small seating area. There is a grand piano, full big kitchen, wooden floors, lots of windows, ceiling fans, etc. It was a great value to rent. We did have to plan everything ourselves. More work, but it made it more personal.Sent on 11/17/2014

We rented the Fort Lauderdale Women's Club for our wedding in July of 2017 and everything was perfect. The venue is stunning, the manager on site was incredibly accommodating and welcoming. Beautiful hardwood floors, big windows, absolutely breathtaking gardens, and more! They worked with our caterer, coordinator, and band so well and the whole night was magical. The venue includes tables and chairs, beautiful decorations inside, a lovely kitchen and can also include the park next door for some outdoor fun. The location is also great, right downtown and very close to hotels.Sent on 07/23/2017
