The Albany Club is definitely a hidden gem located in downtown Toronto. We were looking for a venue downtown that was reasonably priced, accessible to our guests via public transportation but also had character and charm. We found EXACTLY this at the Albany Club. We loved the historical charisma and beauty of the building and the staff at the Albany Club, especially the coordinator Emalee, were just also beyond compare. Professional and friendly from start to finish, Emalee made sure that everything ran smoothly and on time. She also kept in constant communication with us leading up to the wedding day to ensure that all our needs were met and all our questions were answered. The food prepared by their in-house Chef was incredibly delicious and simply amazing! Thank you to everyone at the Albany Club.
The Albany Club was a beautiful venue that we really enjoyed and were proud to have our wedding in. Incredible Service, Great Value for a Downtown Location, Amazing Food. It's really incredible to be able to have the whole building to yourself. Not only that, it feels really regal AND as a guest, it's so easy to get to and go home from. Also, Chef Jay did a great job making sure everything was cooked perfectly. There were a lot of caring service staff, but best of all, was April Thornton, the Catering Director/ Wedding Sherpa/ Planner extraordinaire, who was a big reason of why we chose this place.
I hosted a private family dinner when my aunt and uncle visited from Europe and I have to say the Club blew us away! April was incredible throughout the planning process and the staff were meticulous in making sure all the details were according my specifications. I highly recommend asking for the services of the Club's Sommeliers - Gianmarco actually sabered some champagne for us and it was a delightfully unique touch!
We had a beyond amazing experience working with the Albany Club as our wedding venue. April went above and beyond to make sure that every detail was arranged and that everything went smoothly on the day of the wedding. She met with us several times, responded to our emails almost instantaneously, and took on roles traditionally associated with a wedding coordinator, like helping us create our timeline, creating our floor plan for the reception, cueing everyone on the day of the wedding (e.g. when to line up, when to pass out programs, etc.), and giving us advice around logistics. Furthermore, the food and service during the reception were excellent, the room looked lovely, and all the day-of logistics (e.g. room set up, room flip, dinner service, coordination with vendors) went flawlessly. Soooo highly recommended!
My husband and I married at the Albany Club, July 2018 and we could not be more happy. We've received so many compliments from our guests, the day was perfect from start to finish. April is absolutely fantastic and having her to help on the day of really helped sell us the venue. She had such great advice for us and really helped ensure our day ran smoothly so we could enjoy every minute. She didn't forget a single thing and I couldn't have done it without her. Food was excellent, service was excellent, the venue itself was stunning and required quite modest decoration. I cannot recommend the Albany Club enough if you are looking for a unique and elegant venue for your special day
I walked by this venue in downtown Toronto many times without realizing it was there, because it truly is a hidden gem in the heart of the city! I photographed Shannon and Christopher's wedding at the Albany Club in May and I was very impressed with the venue and the staff. The venue has many rooms that make for excellent photos including a rooftop terrace, a library and a room with big windows and curtains. We were also able to go onto the second floor 'hidden' window to take a photo of all the guests just after the ceremony. Christopher and Shannon did both their ceremony and reception at The Albany Club and we went across the street to James Gardens for photos. We were able to get both a floral feel thanks to James Gardens and an urban feel thanks to the venue on King St. and of course, we took more photos on the rooftop patio and in the rooms of The Albany Club. April and the staff were wonderful to work with and the food was outstanding. I am really looking forward to coming back here this spring to photograph Stephanie and John's wedding!
One on the most beautiful venue to work with, the space is just amazing, so are the staff. Located downtown Toronto, easy access. I have to say, it's my favourite venue to work with. I wish I could have joined your for the Open House this year, but got vey busy at the shop. Looking forward working with you again with the Wedding seasons 2018/19.
April is amazing and a breeze to work with. Albany as a venue is really unique. If you have not seen it before it is worth a look.
Some of our clients said she was the deciding factor on why they picked the venue!
Dear April, it was an honor and pleasure to be a part of your Open House. You and your team put on an awesome showcasing of your venue and your services. Your venue is stunning and has so much history & character, I look forward to PAINTING at The Albany Club in the very near future. Regards Olga
