  • The Athletic Club of Columbus was a perfect venue for our wedding. The ballroom is stunning and does not need any extra decorations. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everything went smoothly. The bowling alley in the basement was the perfect after party experience. My only complaint is that the night went by too fast!

  • Just walking into the Athletic Club of Columbus you get the sense of what a top notch venue it is. Lisa Sullivan, the Event Manager, was amazing, as were the staff that assisted us. Lisa had so many good ideas and suggestions. She is kind, personable and made us feel at ease. Her attention to detail and deadlines kept us on track. The food was great and perfectly cooked, which is not expected at most weddings, and the bartenders, waiters and staff kept up with demand, we had 157 guests. The butler passed appetizers and wine at cocktail hour which our guests appreciated. Thom, the banquet manager, made sure that I, as mother of the bride, did not want for anything the day of, and that everything ran smoothly. The dining room was so beautiful. The venue is just gorgeous, so it really saved on floral costs. You don't need a lot of decorations. It oozes charm and sophistication. The place speaks for itself. Our daughter and her friends stayed in the six suites they have and that... Read more

  • We are having our wedding here in Jan 2017. From the first email Emily Knapp has been a godsend. Her respectfulness of our budget and also our vision has been incredible. She has been there every step of the way, helping us save where we can and helping us navigate what's appropriate for the feel of our wedding. We are so happy we chose the ACC.

  • Words simply can't begin to describe the joyful celebration we enjoyed this past weekend at the Athletic Club of Columbus. There was never a need to stress as Emily Knapp was supremely professional and she and the staff helped attend to every detail. In addition to the support, what I thoroughly loved about Emily was that she seemed as excited as any member of our family.

  • My husband and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the Athletic Club. We chose to tour the Club not knowing exactly what to expect, and we were floored by how perfect it was! The entire building is classy, elegant, full of charm, and so beautiful! We also loved getting to work with Emily Knapp, our wedding coordinator... She made the entire process so flawless and was a MASSIVE blessing to us! We loved that we were able to get ready + have our ceremony and reception all at the same place. It made it so easy for our wedding party and guests! We also loved that they handled all of the set up, tear down, food (which MANY of our guests have said was the best meal they have every had!), and so many other details. Everyone is kind, professional, organized, and helpful. And we cannot say enough good things about Emily. She truly cared for us, supported our vision, was perfectly organized every step of the way, and had a personality that made her so easy to work with. We would re... Read more

  • My husband and I chose the ACC for our venue just about the instant we walked upstairs and saw the beautiful carved wood ceilings in the ballroom. If you are looking for traditional, old world beauty, this place cannot be beat. The staff was also wonderful, and the ACC truly has a gem in Emily Knapp as an event planner. Her cheerful demeanor made every meeting a joy. She is also extremely knowledgeable and competent, asking me questions and prompting me on things I had completely forgotten to consider in the haze of wedding planning. She kept us on track during the planning process and the day of the wedding. I also have received numerous compliments that the food was the best wedding food our guests have ever tasted. We chose the steak and salmon duet, and several people commented on how well the steak tasted and melted in their mouth. We feel completely blessed to have been able to have the ACC as our venue, and the pictures show how beautiful the night was. Most importantly though... Read more

  • The athletic club of columbus is a great place to have your wedding, because the food/ catering, the wedding planner, the reception + ceremony area are all in one place, this makes it so seamless. You cannot imagine what can go wrong when your guests have to move and the wedding planner has not been to the venue before, etc. I will also have to say that we got the twin meal which is a filet and a chicken breast, and every single person in the room said their filet was cooked perfectly (which is so hard to do on an assembly line for 150+ people). I loved my wedding here and would recommend it to EVERYONE looking. they also can make a few little changes to make your wedding tailored specifically to your needs!

  • We held our wedding reception at the ACC on 4/18/15 and it was nothing short of amazing! We really were looking for an elegant/timeless reception venue and this is exactly what the Athletic Club provided. There has been some improvements made to the ACC recently (new carpet, new chair seat customs) that look great. Everything was ran very smoothly by Emily Knapp - who was also great to work with. The food was also fantastic (we served a duet of jumbo shrimp and beef short ribs). Highly recommend!

  • The ACC was an absolutely beautiful venue, and I am thrilled with wedding party we had there. We had ~190 guests, and the room was beautifully decorated. Our planner, Emily, was so helpful, and worked with us on budget, planning, and advised us on where to place bars, flow of guests, and then coordinated with all of our vendors to make the wedding seamless. We had just a small issue with our linens (which were contracted trough the ACC- Lasting Impressions- as some of our table runners came very creased (they were folded and not pressed, so the ACC and Emily had to steam them straight)- I would recommend making sure the rental company ensures that the table clothes/sashes will come pressed. The food was pretty good, though our filet (beef) was not that great. I would recommend a different meal choice. But everything else was wonderful! I was overall very happy with our experience!

  • We had our ceremony and reception at the Athletic Club and it was a dream. They are experts at what they do and the presentation, organization and attention to detail showed all day long! Our guests had nothing but great things things to say about their experience - everyone loved the food, venue, and bartenders! The coordinator that we worked with was Lisa and she was great. She responded to approximately one million emails with patience and helpful answers! She helped us with some special requests in the planning process and the day of she was there making sure things with our vendors and our timeline ran perfectly. We could just enjoy our day because the details were in good hands!

  • This venue is gorgeous and is absolutely worth every penny. The woodwork and architecture alone are so impressive that you don't have to spend much on your own décor. The food was phenomenal! Everyone loved every bit! Emily and Tom the banquet manager were extremely helpful and so professional. Unfortunately a couple of events happened that made me a little sad after the wedding. I felt we were rushed out, prior to the time we agreed to leave. Our stop time was 10:30, the team had everything completely taken down, including the bar, before 10pm. Then they told my fiancé about donating my flowers, and I didn't even get to see them, or keep my bouquet. I would have liked the option to at least see them and see if my mother or her friends would have wanted them. Those two things left a bad taste in my mouth. But I will still give them a decent recommendation, because you could not beat the price for the food and ambiance! It is more impressive in person, than... Read more
