The Italian Club was the perfect venue for our 1920/Gatsby theme wedding.
We had over 200 guest and used all three floors. Not only is the Club spectacular you also get to work with Mark Stanish.
Mark not only listened to what our vision was, he made it happen. The staff from bar tenders to the clean up crew were just amazing. I highly recommend the beautiful Club along with Mark and his remarkabel talent .

Choosing the Italian Club in Ybor for our wedding was the very first decision we made and definitely one of the best. It's a beautiful building with three unique floors in an incredibly lively and diverse neighborhood. The venue coordinator, Mark, is the best in the business. If you are looking for a venue that is timeless, accessible, glamorous, and reasonably-priced, you must consider The Italian Club.

When we found the Italian Club we knew this was the perfect space to have our reception. The warmth of the room along with the marble stair case and historical design really made us fall in love with this building. We started our journey with Dona who had been at the Italian Club for a long time but ended up in the last few months working with Mark who has also been there several years (and in the wedding business for a long time!). After some unanswered emails from Dona we called the Italian Club where we spoke with Mark. We were shocked when we found out our on site coordinator had left without telling us only about 6 weeks before my wedding date but Mark really came to the rescue in the end. Mark honored everything that we had spoken about with Dona as we moved quickly forward towards our wedding date. This was a blessing in disguise. This guy will return your emails right away, does everything on computer and will send you copies which we preferred over doing things on paper, and will meet with you to do final detail and go over everything.
The Club itself was beautiful and the space fit our guests perfectly. We had about 135 people but we had originally planned for 160 which also would of worked great. We loved the Italian Club, it has a space for ceremony on the 2nd floor (but we got married at a church) and a bottom floor bar with a speak easy feel where we had our cocktail hour. The reception is on the 3rd floor with windows overlooking Ybor. There is a lot of parking for guests, a great bar, and elevators, and bathrooms on every floor. Highly recommend the Italian Club! Our pictures were great in this venue and it was just perfect for us. Thanks Mark, you really did a great job we are so happy!
