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!Sent on 07/17/2020

Best Wedding Reception Ever!
Gina and her team were amazing! We were planning the wedding from out of state, and Gina always had great communication with us and ensured everything came out perfect. The venue is absolutely stunning, photos don’t do it justice. Food was superb, every detail was perfect. All our family and friends said it was the best wedding they've been too. Highly recommend!!Sent on 11/05/2019

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!
