The day of our dreams!

We just had our wedding on 5/21/22 at the Metropolis and it was the BEST day. We had a very long engagement due to Covid, but Jill was so helpful from day 1 of working with her. She was quick to answer my (seemingly never-ending list of) questions, she was on top of every little detail I threw her way, and she was so kind and pleasant to work with the entire time!

As for the wedding itself, the day was quite literally perfect. We had both our ceremony and reception in the ballroom, and it was just so lovely. Everything ran smooth as could be. We got SO many compliments on the food - like so, so many. I’m biased, but it was some of the best wedding food I’ve ever had. The space is beautiful, it’s in such a convenient location, and our day went exactly as we pictured it and planned for. Kate, our event captain for the evening was incredible; she was so quick to any of my night-of requests and she really helped make the reception run without a single hitch.

My husband and I absolutely loved our experience with the Metropolis Ballroom, and we would 100% recommend it to anybody searching for an event venue in the northwest Chicago suburbs.

Consistent and Accommodating: Beautiful Venue

We just celebrated our Wedding on 3/25/22- which was previously postponed from our NYE 2021 date due to Covid. Jill and Tom were AMAZING to work with and I can't say enough about them. Jill was so consistent and accommodating to anything that we needed and was always willing to go above and beyond to make our special day a dream come true! The venue itself is beautiful with the lofted ceilings and floor to ceiling windows that overlooked the veranda. The wait staff was also top notch and Kate (catering manager I believe) could not have been more attentive the night of! Over all, if you are looking for a beautiful venue to hold your next event, you should definitely consider The Metropolis and ask for Jill! Thank you again :)

Perfect venue, excellent staff and service, made our day a dream!

We got married at Metropolis on 10/19/2019 and it was the most perfect wedding day we could have ever dreamed of. I can’t say enough great things about the venue and staff – especially Shawna, the wedding director. She led us through the entire process and was honest, friendly, and calm, which is so appreciated especially during the last few stressful months of planning. Shawna and the staff went above and beyond in making sure every detail of our big day was taken care of, so that on the day of, all we had to do was show up! It was completely stress-free and allowed us to truly enjoy the day. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous and EXACTLY what I envisioned for our October wedding. The ballroom is elegant, romantic, and timeless and everyone kept talking about what a beautiful wedding it was. It was well worth the investment. Thank you so much to everyone at Metropolis for making our wedding a day that we will never forget!
