  • My husband and I are both in the hospitality industry and we had a unique vision for our wedding. We were looking for a space that fit our desires as well as a person who made us feel like our guests would be taken care of the way we would have. Julia exceeded our expectations from day one. She listened to what we wanted, and knew how to make it work for us without hesitation. The planning process was seamless and any email was responded to very quickly. The food was amazing - "best wedding food ever" was something we heard multiple times throughout the evening. Day of...staff was fantastic!! We had a small miscommunication regarding beverages but, it was corrected so quickly that only I (the bride) had any idea anything had happened. 100% recommend for so many reasons!

  • I am so incredibly happy that we held our wedding at the University Club. I feel like it is Minneapolis/St. Paul’s best-kept-wedding venue-secret. We held our wedding ceremony and reception at the University Club of St. Paul on September 15, 2018 and LOVED everything about the day! From the very first email to Julia back in January, to writing this review two weeks after our wedding, working with the University Club has been nothing short of amazing. The location is wonderful. Tucked away along Summit Avenue in the heart Crocus Hill near downtown St. Paul and near the Cathedral, the Club has a timeless charm. The space itself is gorgeous – elegant without being stuffy, with ivy climbing the walls, a beautiful chandelier in the entrance, windows letting light pour in and a cozy fireplace as a focal point. We got married in the Summit Room in front of the fireplace that we decorated with candles and flowers, held our cocktail hour in the adjoining Terrace Room and our dinner a... Read more

  • Following our daughter’s out-of-town wedding, we scheduled a Sunday brunch at the University Club St. Paul to introduce the recently-married couple to our many friends who had not been able to attend the wedding. We had previously attended a wedding reception at the Club and had been very impressed. Our entire experience was excellent. It is a beautiful venue, with many windows, a lot of sunlight, a large banquet room and a connected area excellent for serving drinks. The food, served buffet style, was remarkably good. Many guests commented on how delicious it was. The Club was very flexible and supportive as to some dietary needs. The service during the meal was very professional – very available and responsive without being intrusive. The servers were friendly and upbeat. The planning process was equally remarkable. We worked primarily with Ms. Julia Struve, who was knowledgeable, helpful, very responsive, and graciously flexible when the attendance count dropped sl... Read more

  • Incredible! Best wedding & reception venue ever! The venue was absolutely gorgeous, the food was wonderful, and the dance floor and bar spaces were perfect for a crowd that likes to dance and drink, but perhaps most importantly, the SPAC team was unbelievable. I actually cannot say enough wonderful things about David, Julia, Nicole, and the rest of their staff. Throughout the entire process – from our first tour of the venue to paying the final bill, they were incredibly responsive, accommodating, genuinely caring, and just outstanding overall. I never waited more than 12 hours for a response to any question, they were super helpful with ideas and tips and always made sure we weren’t forgetting anything (I had no idea what I was doing), and they always went out of their way to make sure their answer was “yes” to anything we asked for. The day of, everything was seamless, and they did cute little things to make the day even more perfect and special for my husband and I. T... Read more

  • A wonderful venue with really nice and capable staff. We are just so pleased with our choice of The University Club. Julie and Dave made a great team getting us set up with menu selection tastings, wine selections to go with the meal and champagne tasting. The food, by the way, is prepared by WA Frost, a well recognized local restaurant. The staff on duty during our ceremony and event were each wonderful to work with and we greatly appreciated their can-do attitude. Although the club has a limited parking situation, we used their valet service and our guests were very pleased with this added touch!

  • We held the wedding ceremony and dinner at this location on Summit Ave. The people in attendance commented on how great the food was for the event. Julia was very easy to work with and made the event a success. The rooms are a little dated but they do show well on pictures . Worth your time to check out.

  • I cannot say enough good things about the University Club. I just had my wedding at the downtown clubhouse on Cedar and it was everything I dreamed of. The location is gorgeous and Julia was an absolute delight to work with. She responded quickly and never told me no we can't do that, it was always we can! The ceremony was in the downstairs lobby and ceremony up in the ballroom. The staff that was there the night of the wedding was awesome. The only complaint from guests was the portion sizes could have been bigger but, I have been hearing from friends and family since the even saying that it was the best wedding they had ever been to over and over! Thank you Julia and staff!

  • After searching high and low for an amazing venue, we found it in the University Club, Summit Ave club house. BEAUTIFUL Location with a lot of history, wonderful food, and Julia (the wedding coordinator) is AMAZING! She responded to all of our questions the same day, which is rather impressive planning from 1000 miles away! Our day couldnt have gone any smoother than it did. The staff is so professional and really made this run nicely. Would recommend the club to everyone and anyone! If you have a chance, try their food. AMAZING!

  • The venue sells itself. It's gorgeous in every way possible. It's old and elegant, but the food adds a modern twist. The food was wonderful. Our contacts at the University Club were accommodating and great to work with - they help plan and set up the entire reception while letting us bring in our own ideas and personal touches. It's the perfect space for a St Paul reception - the view of downtown St Paul is beautiful.

  • This venue is absolutely beautiful!! We loved it so much and got so many compliments from our guests. We had the ceremony and reception here and wouldn't change a thing. Nicole was great during the planning process and our day of coordinator was so great and helpful. Excellent food, bartender was fun, great dance floor and we hardly added any decorations because the venue speaks for itself.

  • Our wedding at the down town location University club was beautiful. The price (3 grand) was good value considering we negotiated the Lobby area to be free, and used the lobby for our ceramony, and ballroom for reception. The U-club wedding coordinator Julia Strue, was great. She was very quick with responses to emails, and was flexible and willing to work with you on some negotiations. She did however go on maternity leave before our big day leaving us with Talon-from WA frost, who was quite rude and not pleasant to work with. On the big day, the catorers/staff were very nice and did a great job. The food was excellent as far as wedding food goes. I would have to complain about the price of food and beverages. I believe we paid about 350/keg and had to may a $21/bottle corking fee to bring in our own wine. We paid between $28-33/plate. Also, the chairs are chinsey and ugly so it was spendy to have to cover them all.

  • My husband and I had a great experience working with the University Club of St. Paul. Our wedding was actually at the St. Paul Athletic Club property, but they manage both. Julia was our point of contact and was quick to answer questions about anything. She was also really flexible with us on a few changes that we wanted made including our desert table and late night snacks. She happened to go on maternity leave towards the end of our planning, but prepped several other coordinators including Nicole for the day of. Everyone we worked with was great! Our contract came with ivory linens, security, all the waitstaff, a suite for the Bride & Groom at the Hotel 340, and so much more. We were lucky enough to be able to get in to decorate ourselves the day before, but I don't think that's common. They were willing to work with us on any requests and answer even the silliest of questions. The food was amazing! Besides the venue being absolutely beautiful this was the #1 reason we chose them...

  • Thanks to the University Club for being a beautiful venue with excellent customer service! I had my wedding reception at the Summit Avenue Clubhouse earlier this month. As I was planning my wedding from Washington D.C., my family members helped me scope out the location. After I selected the venue, I worked closely with Julia who is an awesome event planner. She is so helpful and efficient which made all the difference in planning a beautiful wedding from a-far. I can't pay enough compliments to Julia! The food that was served was excellent - many guests told me the steak was the best they'd ever had. We also chose the walleye which was perfectly cooked. It's clear that food is a huge forte for the University Club. I initially chose the location because it would fit my guest list of about 100 very well, and the building showcases some beautiful architecture and character that reflect the lovely community where the University Club Summit Avenue Clubhouse is located.

  • We had our reception at the University Club on Summit Hill. The service was absolutely terrible. The underlying issue to all of them is a lack of communication between staff members at the University Club as every time I spoke to a manager on duty they had no idea what was actually going on for our reception (this includes the day of the actual event). Dinner was served late, 40 minutes late. The manager on duty even anticipated this as he told the bakery we used that they would not be able to accommodate our timeline earlier in the afternoon. Knowledge of this might have been useful for a variety of reasons including letting our guests know and having photos taken at the church which we rushed to finish in order to make it to dinner on time. The bakery actually had to store several of the cakes on their own site and bring them back to be served for dessert which of course was late because dinner was late. In addition, the bakery and their photographer had to bring the ... Read more
