    A one-stop-shop venue in downtown Madison!

    If you want a wonderful, one-stop-shop venue for your wedding, the Madison Club is the way to go. They seem like a very expensive venue at first, but once you realize all the services you get with one of their wedding packages, it's well worth it. They provide the venue, food, cake, bartenders and waitstaff, furniture, linens, ready rooms, etc. They even do all the setup and teardown for you, so no need to have your family and friends rush to the venue early to set things up or stay late to pack up your stuff (I can't tell you how valuable of a service this is for both you and your guests).

    We had all of our wedding events at the Madison Club, including rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. Our guests really liked not having to drive from a ceremony location to a separate reception location. The Madison Club's rooms are all so beautiful that it's very easy to find a lovely space for a ceremony and then a cool, open area for your reception.

    The food at the Madison Club is excellent. We used them for lunch food in the ready rooms as well as all the cocktail hour and dinner food options, including the cake. They were very open to accommodating the dietary needs of our guests, even making a custom meal for our two vegan/gluten-free guests for no extra charge.

    Working with Julianne Suleski (one of their wedding coordinators) was one of the best things about planning our wedding. She was always quick to respond to any and all questions I had about the Madison Club and wedding planning in general.

    The Madison Club is also conveniently attached to the Hilton Madison Monona Terrace, which is an excellent option for your wedding hotel block.

    Since the wedding, our guests have been telling us repeatedly what a well-run, perfect wedding we had. So many people before the wedding kept telling us "something will go wrong with your wedding, and that's okay," but literally we had no problems on the wedding day. I thank Julianne and the Madison Club for that.

    My daughter had her wedding reception at the Madison Club. It was a wonderful venue! They have just remodeled their lower level and it is gorgeous. They installed a glass dome ceiling, beautiful gold chandeliers, wooden floors and a media/sound system. It is a magical space. The staff is outstanding. Everyone from the wedding and event planner to the service staff & bartenders were so accommodating. We had a lot of compliments on the food, which was fantastic. It's not easy to put out 165 meals and have it all be great. They have an in-house pastry chef who made the most delicious carrot cake. The Madison Club is a marvelous venue for a wedding.
