    True gem of downtown Milwaukee

    I feel like the city club is the hidden gem of Milwaukee. To say this place is beautiful is an understatement! It’s an amazing mix of old Victorian meets modern touches in the best way and the views from the 6th floor lounge can’t be beat! Leah guided us through the planning process with such friendliness and helpfulness. Literally not a single bad thing to say about this place. PLEASE consider this for a potential venue!! I promise it will meet and exceed all expectations!

    The best wedding planning decision we made!

    We first toured the University City Club in September of 2018, 2 months after our engagement. From the start, Event Director Larry was welcoming, courteous, straightforward, and joyful. We decided to sign the contract the next day, Larry meeting with us in his office on a Sunday to accommodate our out-of-town status. Over the next 2 years, Larry was ever responsive to our every request, question, or concern, available both via email and phone at all times. The University Club requires use of their in-house catering. I was a little apprehensive of this when we signed our contract. All of my anxieties were quickly quelled at our tasting, at which us and four of our bridal party members enjoyed dishes as appetizing to the palate as they were to the eye.

    When I was informed in April 2020 that Larry was no longer with the Club, I was nervous that all of the excellent customer service we had received would be gone with him. Instead, Matt, the Club's Executive Director, went above and beyond to make sure we felt comfortable with him orchestrating our event. He had everything in hand and was on-site and available all day both the day before and the day of our wedding.

    The University Club was flexible and accommodating during the COVID-19 crisis, letting us put a soft hold on a second date, adjusting the catering minimum to account for our reduced number of guests, and reassuring us that should we wish to proceed with our original date, they would be there. Though we booked long before global pandemic was a threat, we couldn't have asked for a better venue to work with during all of the uncertainty. We would absolutely get married at the University Club again in a heartbeat - the beauty, the service, and the food were unbeatable!

    Such a wonderful experience!

    I would highly recommend selecting the University Club for your wedding! The club made all of our dreams come true and we had such a fabulous wedding. Lawrence, the events coordinator at the University Club is a class act and will work with you to make your wedding absolutely perfect. The University Club was our first choice and we are so happy that we selected them as our wedding was absolutely amazing!
