25 The Los Angeles Athletic Club Reviews
Married on 03/26/2011
We had several requirements for our wedding - we wanted it to be indoors, we wanted the ceremony and the reception to be in the same place, and we wanted it to be in a unique venue. The Los Angeles ... Read more Athletic Club met all of our requirements, and as an extra bonus, has a fantastic hotel that our guests could stay at for a reasonable rate. The LAAC staff is great, the food was delicious and the venue is beautiful. And they were able to make our signature cocktails to our specifications with no problems. We can't wait to see the photos!

The LAAC was where my bride and I first met, and it was the most iconic location for our wedding. We worked with the Director of Catering, Roxy, and she put together the most beautiful event. Early: ... Read more Early: Roxy will give you an all star team for the wedding. Just trust that she is giving you the best of the best. Roxy has a lot of knowledge about hosting weddings at the venue. Just talk to her about your dreams, and have some trust with her suggestions because she had some things that she protected us from that we would have never thought of. 3 Weeks Before: Final details get ironed out during a 2-4 hour meeting where you confirm final layouts, number of people, meals, etc. Everything that you can think of gets covered here. This front loads the effort and makes sure that the final days leading up to the wedding are less stressful. She sorts out a 90% final timeline and confirms all vendor arrivals so that she can work with the day of planner to make sure there is nothing that you need to think about on your wedding day. Day of: Roxy is working with the wedding planner/coordinator to make sure that everything goes without fault. She was on top of it tasting food, making sure that the vendors could unload, ensuring her staff is quick and invisible to deliver the most amazing day of our entire lives! Food: We received tons of compliments on the food. It is a fully custom menu, and you work with Roxy on all the ingredients and the recipes. We did a southern menu, and we did multiple tastings to make sure that we nailed everything. The chef met with us, and he made sure that he exceeded all expectations. He went 100% out of the box for a cheesy shrimp and grits recipe that he had never made before, and he crushed it! Well done! Only small note would be for the jalapeno poppers that they make them a little less spicy haha! Venue for photos: One of the most diverse buildings in Los Angeles. This provides the best venue for photos. Just check out ours...

Excellent Historic LA Wedding Venue
We researched and visited many venues for our daughter’s wedding reception. We were familiar with the Los Angeles Athletic Club (LAAC), however we assumed Membership was needed to host an event there. ... Read more there. We found that was not the case. In choosing her wedding reception location, our daughter had a few requests. 1. A historic Los Angeles venue. 2. Ability to provide a vegan food choice for the bride and some of the guests. 3. On site accommodations, due to the large number of guests traveling from all areas of the country. 4. After Party options at the venue, to follow the formal reception. LAAC fulfilled all her desires and more. The venue’s Centennial Ballroom and connecting Olympic Lounge gives the feeling of an old world, classic private club adorned with rich wood paneling, chandeliers, and timeless art. The photo opportunities were many, including the building’s rooftop views. Lastly, the Invention Bar adjacent to the Olympic Lounge, was the ideal place to host the After Party. The food was delicious! Unlike many venues, your menu selections at LAAC are not picked from a list of pre-defined meal options. Instead, you work with the Event Coordinator and Executive Chef to create a custom menu of your desires. We were able to accommodate the vegans, vegetarians, and yet other guests who appreciate classic cuisine. The service was exemplary! Roxy Adlesh, the Event Coordinator, worked tirelessly managing our function up through the start of dinner. Rob Adlesh, the Banquet Manager did a superb job managing the Banquet, Bar, and the After Party food and beverages. He was most gracious and accommodating to all requests asked of him. The Cocktail Hour, Reception, and After Party were all executed seamlessly thanks to the wonderful management and staff. In all, every element of the evening was deemed a great success by the Bride, Groom, and all our guests. The original wedding date was delayed an additional 9 months, so we had many conversations with Roxy Adlesh. She was at all times accommodating, gracious, mindful of all our wishes and budget. She has many years of experience in the field of catering and event management, and was an amazing source of information and expertise. Teri Onorato, the LAAC Hotel manager was also so very accommodating, helpful and gracious when we requested additional rooms at the discounted room rate. Guests commented about the spaciousness, classic decor, yet modern features of their rooms. The Bride and Groom were given a lovely complimentary suite for their wedding night. The Mother and Father of the Bride received a beautiful corner suite at the single room rate. Plus, a delicious, complete breakfast is included with the room fee. The Bride’s cousin, whose own wedding took place a month after ours stated, “The LAAC is so beautiful and the food so delicious, I want to scrap all my wedding plans and start all over here!” We wholeheartedly and without reservation recommend the LA Athletic Club as a wedding venue. There is not one detail or aspect of our event that disappointed. Actually, we’re glad we have another daughter to marry, so we can repeat our wonderful experience at the LAAC.
