The Union Club has a rich history dating back to 1872. The club was a group of cultured gentlemen of the highest status in the city at the time and throughout the ages. They originally met in a three-story brick landmark formerly known as the Truman Handy mansion. The current clubhouse was commissioned in 1903 and completed in late 1905 by architect Charles Schweinfurth. It has since welcomed a number of influential figures including presidents and members of congress.

Outstanding and gorgeous venue and turn-key planning
We recently hosted our wedding at the Union Club and could not be more pleased with the venue and with our planning coordinator, Nancy Zaroogian. From our first meeting, Nancy was a dream to work with, answering all of my endless questions in a timely manner and seeing to every little detail to ensure our big day was perfect! The venue itself was absolutely spectacular and breathtaking, our guests are still raving about it. We had our ceremony in the front room which was so elegant in the evening, the cocktail hour sprawled between the bar and library which added a cozy feel to kick off the night (complete with a roaring fireplace) and then the dinner and reception in the grand ballroom. It felt like we were at Downtown Abbey!
The food and wine was the best I've ever had at a wedding, a review I've heard over and over again from our guests. The staff were courteous and professional and service was perfectly timed.
I can't say enough about the Union Club as a wedding venue. They made the process SO easy and stress free - every bride's dream! - and worked seamlessly with our other vendors. I highly highly recommend booking your next event or wedding here. Nancy, you deserve as many stars as I can give this review. Thank you for making our dream wedding come true!Sent on 01/16/2020

First class everything in a gorgeous venue
Our wedding at the Union Club was incredible, and I cannot find words adequate to express just how wonderful Nancy Zaroogian and her staff are.
From the very beginning, Nancy was organized, responsive and incredibly knowledgable about not only the venue but wedding planning in general. I did not have a planner, and Nancy patiently answered every question and offered guidance when needed. I work in events, and Nancy is hands down the best venue contact I have ever worked with. If I lived in Cleveland I would try to plan every event with her at the UC!
Everything about the Union Club itself was fantastic. From the servers to the receptionist to the maintenance staff, every single person we encountered was kind, attentive and dedicated. They made us feel incredibly special while allowing us to not worry about a single thing.
The Union Club’s wedding packages are inclusive, conducive to stress-free planning, and worth every single penny. The food and service are incredible, and they were flexible and open to reasonable adjustments without adding upcharges for every single request. I cannot stress enough how wonderful the experience was and how pleased we were with our wedding. We are still receiving compliments months later. Thank you to Nancy and the Union Club staff for taking such wonderful care of us. We are forever grateful.
