  • Our daughter was married at the end of August 2018 at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. We couldn't have picked a more perfect venue and are still glowing from the wonderful day enjoyed by the bride and groom and their friends and family. The Racquet Club (RC) helped to create a day that was everything we had dreamed of for her - it was elegant and classy and magical and lots of fun. Within the RC are three distinct spaces for the celebration, a big plus. Our ceremony was held in the gorgeous marble rotunda. The cocktail reception that followed was in a large library type setting, and then dinner was served in yet another room. It made it possible to have quiet music played during dinner, and people were able to have actual conversations without shouting! After dinner the party moved back out to the rotunda where the band had set up for dancing. Jeffrey Miller does the catering for the RC, and Laura Shoup is their site coordinator. She is a consummate professional, who mak... Read more

  • My fiance and I were unsure where to get married - we both live in NYC ... but met in Phila ... and are from the far outskirts of the city. All of the venues (we looked at dozens) near home were super rustic, which isn't what we were looking for, so we decided to look into venues in Phila ... but afraid of the price tag. We looked at ONE venue in the city ... The Racquet Club and knew the second we stepped inside that this was our wedding venue. The place is GORGEOUS ... the character, the architecture, the colors, I mean everything about it is just stunning. I actually want to take my bridal photos on the chaise in the women's bathroom (not joking) ... every inch of RCOP is just absolutely perfect. They have 13 (affordable AND nice) guest rooms (including a HUGE bridal suite) which makes it super easy for bridal parties to all be in the same place. The fee for renting RCOP was much less than I was anticipating and we are happily having the wedding we've always dreamed of, while ... Read more

  • I can't even begin to express how amazingly our wedding at the Racquet Club went. My fiance and I knew right away it was the perfect choice for our wedding, with it's old Philadelphia charm and bright welcoming spaces it was a dream come true. The event designer Laura was so delightful to work with, she responded to all of our questions right away and made the details part of wedding planning completely stress free. The food from Jeffrey Miller Catering was easily the best we've ever had at a wedding. They have rooms available to stay in and an amazing downstairs bar that we could book for our after party so we didn't have to spend one second of our wedding day traveling. Everything from the food, the incredible staff, and the beautiful space made it the absolute best day of our lives and I can't thank them enough. I cannot recommend the Racquet Club of Philadelphia and their entire wedding team more highly.

  • My husband and I could not have had a better experience working with Laura at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. The location was perfect for a center city wedding and the charm of the building was exactly what we were looking for. They work with an exclusive cater, Jeffrey Miller Catering, who were awesome. Our families rented out all 13 hotel rooms which was incredibly convenient. People are still raving about how great the flow of the evening was with having different areas dedicated for cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. We rented out the old style pub downstairs for an after party which was perfect to keep the night going. We had about 150 guests and it was perfect for the space. I would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a fun, unique venue in center city

  • Wow. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. We keep getting comments from friends and family about how our wedding was the best ever. I couldn't agree more; I would not have changed a thing. If you're looking for a super unique venue with LOTS of character and amazing party flow, look no further. Not only is the venue sweet, but the affiliated caterer, Jeffrey Miller Catering, is top notch. Marc, the wedding coordinator for Jeffrey Miller, was amazing throughout the entire planning process and executed on the day of like a champion. Even my DJ was impressed enough to offer a comment about how great Marc and his team were. You owe it to yourself to check this space out.

  • I couldn't score the RCOP any higher! The venue was absolutely perfect for our wedding. From our first showing to the planning to the day-of details, Katelynn and her team worked with the utmost professionalism and flexibility. They nailed it! The space is GORGEOUS - it is classic, beautiful, and very Philadelphia. The food is great. The bar is awesome (Rob, the bar manager, worked with us to provide local brews and a signature cocktail that was delicious). The hotel rooms in the RCOP are wonderful and priced so reasonably. The whole experience and event was just A++.

  • I was married at the Racquet Club in September 2012 and had a wonderful experience. It is a super pretty place that is much more unique than a hotel ballroom because it's historical and has unique architecture. It also has a city vibe, located just a few blocks from Rittenhouse Square. You are required to use Jeffrey Miller Catering, which has really amazing food. We're foodies that live in NYC so we're super picky about food, and JMC did not disappoint. It was not "wedding food." Also, JMC assigns a wedding coordinator to handle all of the details. Coordinator Marc Liss was fantastic especially for a detail oriented person like myself. An added bonus is that you can rent the basement bar room for an after party (for an additional fee of course), which is super fun and gives you more time to interact with your guests. In short, I would highly recommend the Racquet Club!

  • My husband and I got married at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia on 9/8/12. It was a beautiful venue for our wedding...the large staircase was the perfect spot for our first look and the various rooms for cocktail hour, dining, and dancing made the venue quite unique and different than your typical ballroom. It was also very convenient - we stayed at the Racquet Club the night before the wedding and on our wedding night and also held our after party there! Jeffrey Miller was the exclusive caterer for the venue and we had a wonderful experience with them. Our venue coordinator, Marc Liss was awesome! He was so accommodating throughout the entire process! He made sure we had our private tasting before we signed our contract and even arranged for us to come in for a second tasting when we changed our mind about one entree. He was always quick to respond to emails and calls and always offered his insight and expertise when we were making decisions on different aspects of our wedding. O... Read more

  • The Racquet Club is an amazing venue. It has the classic old world Philly feel and decor. The venue offers a sense of movement throughout the evening as well. There are multiple rooms in which the evening rotates though: a beautiful sitting room for cocktails and appetizers, a lovely dining room for dinner and speeches, and a beautiful open foyer with grand staircase for entrances and dancing. The Club uses there own caterer and provides the bride and groom with wedding coordinator. The food was fantastic. We had a private tasting where the food was prepared for us to try and comment on. The caterer also did our wedding cake. The cost for the venue, food, and cake was well below anything else we explored in the Philadelphia city limits. The Racquet Club also gave us an option to provide our own libations or pay them for the open bar. Either way bartenders, mixers, and glasses etc were provided.

  • The venue is absolutely beautiful. The venue has so much historical charm and vintage look that there is minimal decorating required. We are happy with the venue. There are hotel rooms upstairs available for out of town guests, which is convenient. Owen, the front desk manager is great. He is quick to respond and is pleasant to talk with. In regards to the catering service that is exclusive to the venue - the food was good (much better during the tasting though). The food was much better than most wedding food that we've had. Laura, the coordinator is great with communicating to all vendors so that we didn't have to worry about it. We are grateful to Laura and JAM, they truly provided more than we asked for. If I were to critique something, I do wish the flow of the wedding was a bit more organized with having people directed into the appropriate rooms at the appropriate times.

  • I'm getting married at the Racquet Club this June. Everyone at Jeffrey A. Miller Catering (JAM), the exclusive caterer for this venue, and the Racquet Club has been great so far as we prepare for the wedding! We first met at the venue with Laura Shoup from JAM about a year ago - she took a lot of time to show us around the venue & answer all of our questions. After seeing the space & meeting with her, choosing to have our wedding reception there was an easy decision. The venue is so beautiful and spacious. It's classic and has a ton of character. They were very accommodating & worked with us when our first choice of date wasn't available. Our contract & down-payment process was also very simple & straightforward. Over the past year, Laura has always been very accessible through E-mail to answer questions. The staff at the Racquet Club has been very helpful too - they were courteous enough to let my parents drop by on a week day to look at the space and the upstairs guest rooms (whi... Read more

  • We wanted a black tie optional wedding in a place that time forgot with good food, a beautiful space, and lots of drinks. We certainly got it at the Racquet Club of Philadelphia. The venue is linked with JAM catering, so our coordinating happened through JAM, so consider this a review of both of these businesses. Ideally, we wanted a venue that felt old Hollywood, where our wedding party could spend the night, where we could bring our own wine, and where we could have an after party, too. The Racquet Club provided all of those things, so we were sold. We immediately clicked with Laura, and she killed it on our wedding night. She did a great job of listening to what we wanted, and was flexible and made it work. Early on, we were a little bit nervous about making sure that everything got completed, but it did, and went very smoothly. Laura did an amazing job helping set up the space, and we were amazed at how well it transformed to exactly what we wanted it to be. All of the food was ... Read more

  • The venue is absolutely stunning and we received so many compliments on our choice of a "unique" venue. (Plus, they have an exclusive catering contract with Jeffrey A. Miller Catering, and that is reason enough to have an event here.) The key is working with your JAM contact and having as little to do with the Club folks. While some folks were completely fine, others were of the opinion that they could make decisions for us about details of the wedding, on our wedding day (i.e., where our wreaths could be hung), resulting in some last minute scurrying when I had to make that correction. A bonus, however, is that the Club does have 13 guest rooms, so that if you do hold an event there, you have the option of having several guests be able to stay overnight, which was extremely convenient. Another plus, the Club has a much lower minimum guest count than many other venues in the city for a Saturday night (which was a plus for us), so if you're looking for a unique venue on a weekend...
