We had several requirements for our wedding - we wanted it to be indoors, we wanted the ceremony and the reception to be in the same place, and we wanted it to be in a unique venue. The Los Angeles Athletic Club met all of our requirements, and as an extra bonus, has a fantastic hotel that our guests could stay at for a reasonable rate. The LAAC staff is great, the food was delicious and the venue is beautiful. And they were able to make our signature cocktails to our specifications with no problems. We can't wait to see the photos!

Perfect Wedding Venue in DTLA
We looked a lot of wedding venues around the area, but none of them had all the elements we were looking for. Having been a member for a couple years we were familiar with the LA Athletic Club, but I always assumed it would be way out of our price range and that we'd only be renting a venue. Roxy, the Event Coordinator / Director of Catering is simply the best. She handled virtually everything. Having heard horror stories of other weddings, I was relieved that she had planning weddings at the LA Athletic Club down to a science. The food was EXCELLENT. We even rented out the bar for the after-party and Rob the banquet manager helped us set up our own playlist over the clubs speakers. It was all perfect, and my wife and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. It's truly the best place to have your greatest day.
One last thing, every single last preferred vendor was fantastic from the wedding photographer (Fitz) to our day of coordinator (T).

The LAAC was where my bride and I first met, and it was the most iconic location for our wedding. We worked with the Director of Catering, Roxy, and she put together the most beautiful event.
Early: Roxy will give you an all star team for the wedding. Just trust that she is giving you the best of the best. Roxy has a lot of knowledge about hosting weddings at the venue. Just talk to her about your dreams, and have some trust with her suggestions because she had some things that she protected us from that we would have never thought of.
3 Weeks Before: Final details get ironed out during a 2-4 hour meeting where you confirm final layouts, number of people, meals, etc. Everything that you can think of gets covered here. This front loads the effort and makes sure that the final days leading up to the wedding are less stressful. She sorts out a 90% final timeline and confirms all vendor arrivals so that she can work with the day of planner to make sure there is nothing that you need to think about on your wedding day.
Day of: Roxy is working with the wedding planner/coordinator to make sure that everything goes without fault. She was on top of it tasting food, making sure that the vendors could unload, ensuring her staff is quick and invisible to deliver the most amazing day of our entire lives!
Food: We received tons of compliments on the food. It is a fully custom menu, and you work with Roxy on all the ingredients and the recipes. We did a southern menu, and we did multiple tastings to make sure that we nailed everything. The chef met with us, and he made sure that he exceeded all expectations. He went 100% out of the box for a cheesy shrimp and grits recipe that he had never made before, and he crushed it! Well done! Only small note would be for the jalapeno poppers that they make them a little less spicy haha!
Venue for photos: One of the most diverse buildings in Los Angeles. This provides the best venue for photos. Just check out ours...
The Los Angeles Athletic Club is the perfect choice for a Wedding and Event Venue. We love working with their team of professionals. All aspects of the events that we have had a pleasure to be a part of were as smooth and professional as could possibly be. Not only did they create a wonderful event but they do it with calmness, poise and class. We highly recommend them for any event!
The Los Angeles Athletic Club is one of my favorite venues in Los Angeles. In addition to being unique and gorgeous, Kelly and her staff are top notch! I have seen them, time and time again, go above and beyond for each and every one of their couples.
