Excellent reception venue in historic and elegant building. Very accommodating staff and exceptional appointments and service. I highly recommend the UW Club for wedding receptions.
University Club is one of those well-hidden gems of Madison Downtown. New management that stepped in few years ago really did a tremendous work and gathered finer banquet crew. This unique reception venue not only radiates charm and history but also serves fantastic food and has carefully selected staff that radiates hospitality and care. One of my favorite venues to work with!
