University Club and their staff are the best. Kelli, Jonathan, and Cyrus were absolutely amazing to work with from the beginning to the end. Everything was perfect. They're also super flexible with food and bar customization. I had a handful of guests with food allergies, and we had a very specific drink list we wanted for the bar that they were happy to accommodate. I shopped around at least 20 venues in the general LA area, and I'm seriously so glad I chose this place. If you're looking to get married in Pasadena, hands down 10/10 this is the venue I recommend.Sent on 07/10/2018

My daughter had her wedding here, at University Club Of Pasadena, in August 2018. When we walked in, we were all sold.Sent on 08/24/2018
The venue is charming and just what my daughter and her fiancé (now husband) were looking for. It's historic and steeped in "Old Pasadena" charm. The vine-filled courtyard was perfect for the ceremony, and the fountain and lights added a lovely touch. The crisp linens, gold chivari chairs and beautiful chandeliers in the dining room added to the elegance of the evening.
Kelli, Director of Catering & Special Events, and her staff exceeded our expectations in every way. From beginning to end, Kelli helped my daughter and her fiancé plan their dream wedding. Kelli and Jonathon were so accommodating. The entire staff took wonderful care of us.
The food was amazing! We served Indian and American food and Chef & his staff did not disappoint. The presentation was gorgeous and the food was delicious! Everyone was talking about it. We also served a variety of unique & delicious appetizers before dinner.
The value is incredible. University Club Of Pasadena is an all-inclusive venue with ceremony and reception space, separate, very large rooms for bride and groom preparations and valet parking included!
If you're looking for a wedding venue, please visit University Club of Pasadena. I hope you fall in love with this place and Kelli & Staff as much as we did.

We were just married on 10/13/2017, but fell in love with the University Club a year prior. We had already placed a down payment on another venue, but immediately changed our minds once we walked in. The management team, and staff were amazing! Kelli, Cyrus, Jonathan and entire team were super professional, flexible, and more than attentive not only for the planning process, but the day of, our entire wedding party was treated like royalty! The food selections were superb, and the chef and his creations, are out of this world! Everyone at our wedding ranted and raved about the food, from the appetizers, to salad, and especially the main course. If you are planning a wedding, I would highly recommend making an appointment becomes this venue books quickly.Sent on 10/21/2017
