    The best venue!

    What an incredible venue! I was so sad to hear that they would be officially closing in June 2022. Given Mid America Club is part of ClubCorp and the staff will be moving over to their other city location, The Metropolitan in the Sears Tower (sorry, native Chicagoan here), I wanted to leave a well-deserved review. First of all, the view is spectacular. It is on the 80th floor of the Aon Building and has floor-to-ceiling windows. The space was large enough for our 200+ party and we had the entire 80th floor to ourselves that night. The food was incredible. Yes, wedding food! The food at the cocktail hour was delicious as was the plated dinner. The venue helped us put together a remarkable cocktail hour, with passed hors d’oeuvres and stations which represented different neighborhoods in Chicago – the Pilsen Station with tacos, empanadas, and guacamole and chips; Little Italy with pasta and chicken vesuvio; and Wrigleyville with sliders, Chicago style hot dogs, pretzels with beer cheese, and chicken fingers. They also offered expanded dessert options (brownie ice cream sundae bar) and a late-night snack of our favorite deep-dish pizza. The planners at Mid America Club are professional, detail oriented, and went above and beyond to ensure we had the best day ever! We worked with Samantha (who has since left) and Gina who perfectly executed every single detail on our wedding day. The staff at Mid America know how to pull off an excellent wedding! I am confident they will be able to plan the same experience for other couples who choose their other venues!

    Fantastic Staff and Experience!

    I was the wedding coordinator for a wedding that was affected by COVID. From start to finish the Mid-America Club was overly accommodating and helped us actually cater out to a private location that allowed groups at the time. That staff that arrived was so friendly and made the night absolutely perfect. The Staff actually helped me complete decorating and gave their expert input (which was so appreciated) and really went above and beyond to make the reception an absolute hit! We worked especially with Gina Trombetti who was extremely accommodating. The Mid-America Club staff truly are event experts and do everything in their power to make your wedding an absolute success. I highly recommend!
