Best Kept Secret!
You will NOT be disappointed if you book at the UClub. They went above and beyond to make our wedding planning as seamless as can be. We wanted elegant traditional and the UClub fit the bill. The ceremony and reception were held in the ballroom. It was lovely having the fireplace as a backdrop surrounded by windows. After the ceremony, our guests went to the 6th floor for a cocktail hour and the views of Lake Michigan and the Art Museum were breathtaking! The dinner and dancing were held in the ballroom and the feedback I received from my guests was beyond positive. The food was cooked and flavored to perfection. It's hard to serve a delicious meal to 150+ guests, yet the UClub nailed it. I must say, the actual dinner and presentation of the plate was even better than the tasting
! Another HUGE bonus of UClub was all the space provided to the wedding party, bride and groom to get dressed in prior to the ceremony. Thank you, Larry and staff,

Made Our Dreams Come True!
We had our wedding at The University Club of Milwaukee in May. We fell in love with the venue the moment we entered. The way the staff and club members have preserved the venue is incredible. The food was delicious!! We had so many compliments on the food choices. There was a wide variety of options and the chef was more than accommodating to meet any special dietary needs. What made our wedding special was the staff. It is evident that they enjoy working at the University Club and it made us, and our guests, feel at home while we were there. Lawrence, the Events Coordinator and Director of Catering, was wonderful to work with! His attention to detail and years of experience is unmatched. Our wedding went off without a hitch and we owe a lot of it to Larry. We have continued to hear compliments about our wedding, even 2 months later. Thank you to everyone at the University Club of Milwaukee for making our day so special. We will never forget it and will 100% recommend it for any future couples.

Best Venue in Milwaukee for a Wedding
To say my daughter's wedding held at the University Club of Milwaukee was "perfect" would actually be an understatement. From the start, meeting with the banquet manager, Lawrence, set the tone. We felt very confident with his guidance and eloquence. Planning the wedding was very organized. Now let's speak about the venue. What other location is set on the shore of Lake Michigan? There are not many. The view was incredible, the architecture of the building was beautiful, the many rooms available for different uses was hard to beat. The groom's family traveled from afar and were all able to stay in the hotel- like rooms at the club. The food was not only delicious but was presented like art. I have one question, why would anyone not choose to have a wedding at this perfect venue? In summary.....WONDERFUL

The University Club – Milwaukee has a lot to offer besides the typical Ballroom for a Wedding Reception.
The wedding package gave us access to many of the building features. The entire building features antique furniture in an elegant setting. The top sixth floor was perfect for our cocktail hour featuring a half-circle of windows with beautiful panoramic views of Lake Michigan. Having the entire floor, you also have West views of the city. The built-in center located bar was perfect for our cocktail hour. It was very convenient to have booked overnight rooms right there for the wedding party and family. The variety of rooms available we were able to pick from gave us a selection that fit a variety of guest arrangements. Included with the rooms are two separate preparation suites for pictures of the wedding party early start of the big day. The female suite of three rooms has one room with wall to wall large mirrors for elegant pictures of the bridesmaids in preparation. The male suite had its own elegant stateliness for the groomsmen to prepare in too. The Ballroom can be opened up to an L configuration. We used the main section for our 120 guests for dinner. Extending into the L section with its large mural on the inside wall, we used that section for our live band with dance area. So no chairs needed to be moved out of the way for the dancing after dinner.

Exceeding expectations every step of the way
We were absolutely thrilled with our wedding at the University Club on Saturday, May 18. My husband and I hosted our son's wedding at the city club. We began working with Larry Kreiner in January, and while I have extensive experience with event planning and execution, it was reassuring to have Larry at the helm. Early on, we knew we were in excellent hands. Larry was always quick to respond to phone calls and emails, prompt with correspondence and answers to inquiries, and eager to ensure our wedding would fulfill our wishes.
And it did. While our May weekend weather was not ideal, everything at the University Club exceeded expectations. The staff was wonderful, hors d'oevres and the meal were delicious, and the venue was accommodating for all our guests. Larry and Onella were there making sure every detail happened as planned. Our new daughter-in-law's family cannot stop sending their thanks for a lovely, elegant day. We were thrilled!
We do not take for granted this commitment to excellence at The University Club. It comes with a strong hospitality mission and commitment to service. Thank you to everyone, especially Larry, for making our wedding a weekend to remember.
University Club of Milwaukee is Outstanding and Beautiful
Larry is an outstanding professional who is very reliable. Our daughter's wedding was picture perfect. The terrific view of Lake Michigan, the cuisine and service were amazing. In addition and very importantly, upon our request, Larry recommended outstanding, bands, florists, photographers, etc. Since we are from the north suburban area of Chicago this was very helpful. Many thanks to Larry and his entire staff.
Our daughter's wedding
Lawrence Kreiner and Chef Ross were wonderful to work with. Larry thought of everything from using the proper chairs to the most beautiful outside setting. Ross's food selection could not have been better. Our guests are still talking about how perfectly done the dinner was. The staff down to the bus staff were extremely professional. This was the last of our children to get married and this was by far the most professional, well-run wedding we have had.
