A Historic Gem
There Italian Club was a perfect venue for our wedding. We rented the entire building to make to convenient for our guests. Ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception all took place on different floors. Mark was AMAZING. I had many questions throughout the process and he was super responsive. Would definitely recommend this venue. It has its own historic charm and we loved it!Sent on 05/23/2021

Beautiful Venue with an Amazing Coordinator
Where do I even start, it was perfect. Mark is a GOD SEND. He quite literally stopped traffic so we could get pictures in the middle of a busy street. He was always immediately responsive, helped set everything up, and never made me feel like a bother. Extremely organized (which was a necessity for my type A self). The venue itself is 3 stories, but I only used the first and second floors. The layout was perfect and it was my fairy tale wedding.Sent on 11/03/2020

Wedding of 2018
The Italian Club is an over-all wonderful, beautiful place to have any type of engagement. We first worked along with another individual, in which that person left. My Husband and myself was devastated, but Mark gave us full assurance that he would do the best that he could to accommodate us and make sure everything go as planned when we had first booked with the first individual. Mark was an awesome person to work with and accommodated us as he promised. Thank you Mark for all your hard work and open communication.Sent on 12/28/2018
