Can’t say enough wonderful things about The Community House!
I can’t say enough wonderful things about The Community House! My daughter was married during the pandemic which added a bit of stress to the wedding planning. However, the staff at The Community House were so helpful in helping us recreate our wedding. They were on top of the Covid protocol and made the transition easy and safe. We had originally planned to use the outside tented terrace just for our cocktail reception, however when the pandemic changed things, the outdoor space was large enough to host our entire reception--comfortably and elegantly! The food was outstanding. There were so many wonderful dinner choices—we ended up selecting filet mignon and salmon. We received many compliments from our guests about how wonderful the meals were and how attentive the waitstaff was. Our out of town guests loved being in the heart of beautiful Birmingham, MI. Many guests stayed at the Townsend Hotel and the Holiday Inn Express and enjoyed the easy walk to the venue. The Community House is hands down the best place in the greater Birmingham/Bloomfield area to host a wedding or any large event!Sent on 09/28/2020

An Elegant Wedding Shower
The TCH sales planner made the planning fun and simple right down to every detail. No surprises. The elegant setting, gourmet food, prompt and attentive service made for a beautiful wedding shower (40 guests) for my daughter. My daughter was so pleased with everything. I would host another event at TCH for sure!Sent on 10/14/2019

The Community House made our wedding day perfect! Sarah, the event planner was with us every step of the way! She truly went above and beyond throughout our entire time of working with her! The venue was very accommodation of our wedding schedule/timeline and made sure we always had what we needed! The food was excellent and service was beyond words! All of the staff members checked in with us multiple times throughout dinner and made sure we had everything we needed throughout the whole evening. We received multiple compliments on the food and service. We highly recommend working with Sarah at The Community House!Sent on 10/15/2019
The Community House in Birmingham's reply:Hi Kristen, Thanks so much for your lovely review of The Community House! We have fond memories of your special day and it was so much fun working with you. Best Wishes!
The Community House in Birmingham is a great place to hold a reception. Many weddings that we do at Sacred Heart hold receptions at the The Community House. Great staff, good food, and a fantastic location.
Great Venue! Easy to work with, professional and on target. Highly recommended.
Worked with the Community House many times over 25 years. Never disappointed.
