    Dreamy Wedding Venue

    My wife had grown up in Chicago and when we chose to get married in her hometown, we knew we wanted to make it a weekend full of iconic Chicago spots. Immediately, the Metropolitan Club came to mind as a place that would as unforgettable as it was beautiful. From the beginning, the team at the Metropolitan, namely Sally Woodson, made the entire process as seamless as ever. We had the lovely experience of allowing all of our guests to go up to the SkyDeck before the happy hour which really wowed everyone. From there, the food and the whole evening were absolutely perfect! Our guests still tell us about how much they enjoyed the night, which truly makes us so happy. If you are looking for an iconic Chicago venue for your wedding that you will remember for the rest of your life, look no further than the Metropolitan Club!

    Awesome views, great staff

    We're so happy that we chose the Metropolitan as our reception venue. From our initial venue search, Sally was the ultimate professional in answering all of our questions throughout our entire wedding process. Our guests were thoroughly impressed with our venue and we definitely recommend them if you're looking for a special venue in Chicago!

    Pros: View is truly spectacular at sunset and throughout the night. Sally in particular was helpful, responsive, and willing to listen to all of our ideas. We really liked the ability to have almost all of our needs taken care of through the venue (linens, chairs, catering, cake, lighting, etc.). Guests raved about the food and there is flexibility in choosing your menu - the menu tasting itself is a true event - they pull out all the stops to give you an idea of what the food experience will be like on your day. The bakery that works with the venue is also easy to work with and creative in design. The rooms we had reserved allowed for us to have a bridal suite on the same floor, which was helpful during the reception.

    Cons: Willis Tower itself is difficult to get any signage around, so can be difficult to get guests where they need to be. Be aware that if you try to get to the Sky Deck Observatory, the Metropolitan has no relationship with the Sky Deck, so you may wait a while to get onto a ledge.
