I can't say enough positive things about our experience with MAC and our coordinator, Gina. Gina:"Don't hire a day-of coordinator - I've got you covered" --and indeed she did. Our experience here was great, from the first meeting, all the way through to the days after, when she made sure we had all of our left-behind items in hand. The wedding was beautiful and everything went smoothly. The food was great and everyone was talking about it! And the staff--they were amazing, too. They went above and beyond the entire day to make sure everyone was comfortable, fulfilling every request from any of our guests. They even helped us get all of our flowers to the Fairmont next door that night so we could use them for brunch the next morning! Again, I can't say enough about what a great experience we had with them, and I would recommend MAC to any couple looking for a wedding venue!

To start off, the views at the Mid-America Club are like no other view in all of Chicago! It's absolutely gorgeous and you and your guests will spend at least a bit of the night staring out at them. The staff, starting with the coordinator and going all the way to the waiters, chefs, and bar tenders were all spectacular! They truly take care of every possible detail to make your day the best you could ever have. Want an exquisite wedding? Start with a venue like no other!

Absolute dream come true venue! My husband and I were married earlier this month at the Mid-America Club and our wedding was stellar on every possible level. The location and venue views are unbeatable, and best of all their staff are incredible experts in wedding planning. We worked with Sam M. who was a godsend -- fantastic attention to detail, a consummate professional, and amazing day-of planning expertise. Sam was so accessible in the year and months leading up -- we had multiple phone calls and in-person meetings, and the Club makes this as easy as possible by essentially providing a wedding planner with the venue. Honestly our wedding day was a breeze with zero hiccups thanks to Sam and her staff. The MAC exceeded expectations time and time again throughout our planning process, and the day-of WOW factor is sure to be a serious hit with your guests. No better wedding venue in Chicago!!
Awesome staff, great food, best views in Chicago. I love this place!
There's nothing that makes us happier than setting up our beautiful booth in one of the most beautiful rooms in the city. This place always takes our breaths away.
Fabulous views paired with exquisite service makes your event unforgettable. Emily Larson is on top of her game; as a vendor, I have seen the best and she is right up there!
