We were married at the Woman's Club in May. We can't wait to have our anniversary party there!! To echo all the other reviews, it is absolutely a hidden gem. For those of you reading this, you won't understand it unless you experience it. Valerie made all the planning so incredibly easy for us. The staff is genuinely warm, friendly and attentive. The hors d'oeuvres and dinners were delicious. The staff created an atmosphere for us where we felt that we were inviting our guests into our home. All of our guests enjoyed the evening. Without hesitation we recommend the Woman's Club of Wisconsin for your special event!
I had my wedding reception at The Woman's Club of Wisconsin this past May - I highly recommend it to all Milwaukee brides! The building itself is beautiful, historic, and spacious - it was absolutely perfect for my wedding of 180 guests. I really liked working with the General Manager, Valerie, to organize the reception. She was extremely responsive and accommodating which made the entire planning process fun and seamless. Unlike other venues I toured, the Woman's Club was flexible and willing work with me to make the day exactly what I envisioned! The food and service during the cocktail hour and dinner were also great! I'm so happy I chose The Woman's Club; I'm already telling all of my newly-engaged friends about it!
I would highly recommend The Women's Club of Wisconsin as the perfect wedding venue. We held my daughter's wedding there in June 2016. We had a final count of 176 guests. My daughter had a mid afternoon ceremony in the elegant ballroom. Immediately following the ceremony the guests were directed down to the main level of this beautiful historic mansion for a fun and relaxing time of appetizers while the bridal party concentrated on pictures and the staff flipped the ballroom & decorated for the dinner and reception. The main contact person we dealt with in our planning process was Valerie. She was wonderful from start to finish. From my first telephone conversation months before the wedding to the actual wedding week she was informative, helpful and so patient - never rushed in dealing with the many questions and situations that came up when planning a wedding. I don't know how she does it dealing with as many weddings week after week but she made us feel completely special all throughout the entire process. In regards to the menu we knew after our tasting that the food was going to be exceptional. Our biggest worry was if the chef could accomplish for 176 guest what he did for our small group during the tasting. The bottom line is that the guests RAVED about everything from the appetizers we chose to the dinners that were served. This is the great benefit of choosing a venue with a chef on staff who can be in complete control in his own kitchen! Each and every member of the staff from the valet parking guys to the food servers were completely polite and professional. I was most impressed with the fact that any small request I had during the actual wedding day directed to either the valet staff, wait staff or Valerie herself all were addressed within minutes of me asking for something. They were so professional and obviously were all on board to make the day perfect for the bride and groom. A great big Thank You to The Women's Club for an incredible day.

The Woman's Club is a hidden gem. The club is beautiful, the staff friendly and helpful, the food is delicious. The coordinator was extremely helpful. She offered suggestions that made my day better and took care of every detail with confidence. I never spent any energy worrying about the wedding reception and all my expectations were exceeded. My reception was beautiful, I had so many compliments on the venue. I couldn't imagine a better place.

A hidden treasure!! Nails the vintage theme.
This venue was spectacular for a wedding. I've live in WI my whole life and had never heard or seen this building before. It wasn't until a family friend of the groom, who was a member there, suggested we take a look and she would be willing to sponsor us if we committed. After looking at several of the typical reception venues like country clubs and golf courses, it took one look at the The Women's Club and I knew it would be perfect for but also unique. The building is old but beautiful with antique furniture and has that real vintage feel about it. The main level feels like you've stepped onto the Titanic and you've been transported back in time to a classy and formal event. There are several beautifully decorated rooms on the main level with many great locations and decor for photos. Plus lots of room to mingle during cocktail hour. They offered valet for guests. The furniture and decor of the main level is done so well there was barely any need to add anything for the wedding. I opted to bring in a few flowers for the gift and cocktail tables, plus added a few pictures around the venue to make it a little more personal. The food and service was OUTSTANDING. Can't say enough about the food. The guests were raving about it. Once it's time for dinner and dancing, the dinner bell is rung and the guests make their way up two beautiful staircases to the ballroom upstairs. The ballroom is a good size but not too big. We had 16 tables plus a small sweetheart table, and still had room to dance up front. There is a stage which was perfect for the band we hired. But also good to have the stage so the music professionals don't take up extra room on the main floor. There was a small balcony window above the ballroom which was the perfect spot to toss the bouquet and for the photo/video professionals to get a birds eye view of the festivities. I did not have my ceremony here but can image with the stage and set up, you could have a beautiful ceremony there. I loved this location so much I would highly recommend it to any bride who was looking for a vintage/romance theme.

This venue is absolutely beautiful! You have the entire building. Cocktail hour on the first floor with dinner and dancing in the gorgeous ballroom upstairs! It truly helped make my dream wedding! There is even a balcony overlooking the ballroom to use for the bouquet toss! We just had our reception there, but they can do ceremony and reception if needed. I worked with Valerie and she was the most helpful person I dealt with through the wedding planning process. She responded promptly to all my emails, we went through a schedule of the reception events, and they set everything up for us, so our families could relax and enjoy the day. We just had to drop everything off! All the food was delicious too! We had the filet, vegetable risotto, or crimini mushroom chicken, and the appetizers were great too! She was also very accommodating, and it was great to work with her and her staff! I am so happy that I chose the Woman's Club of Wisconsin!

We were at the Woman's Club in Milwaukee this weekend for one of the most beautiful weddings I've ever been to. The building was timeless, elegant and so beautiful... And the food was amazing- everyone keeps talking about how perfectly their filets were cooked! We were also super impressed with the staff. They went out of their way to make sure our kids were comfortable. The staff was gracious and smiling right up to the end of the party, which is a rarity when it comes to the end of the night at a wedding! It was a perfect day for my sister and her new husband and I'm so grateful for all the Woman's Club did to make it that way.

The Woman's Club of Wisconsin is truly an enchanting place. From the moment my fiancé and I walked into the club we knew instantly that it was the venue we wanted for our wedding reception. Valerie, the club manager, was very easy to work with and accommodating. She responded quickly to calls and emails and was very flexible with last minute changes. On the day of our wedding all the staff members were so friendly and efficient. The food was absolutely amazing! Their new chef is extremely talented and served perfectly cooked steak and chicken. There were no complaints of cold food, which is a challenge to do with a party of 165 guests. Our wedding reception was flawless and we would highly recommend the Woman's Club without hesitation. Many of our guests told us it was the nicest wedding they had ever been to. We can't thank Valerie and the Woman's club enough for making our wedding day so amazing!
