The National Club was the ultimate host in every capacity for our wedding. My husband and I were married on June 3, 2017, and it was the perfect Toronto setting. We had guests from all over, near and and overseas, and it was an amazing experience for anyone. This is a private club and a Toronto heritage landmark. Our guests were extremely excited to have access to the club and see what is behind the big beautiful doors. Our ceremony was at our parish in the west end of Toronto. Upon arrival, guests were directed to the rooftop patio for hand-passed appetizers. This really set the tone, and some of our guests are STILL raving about this detail. Having access to any rooftop overlooking the financial core is extremely rare. Guests were then directed to the main dining room on the 2nd level. The food was excellent. Cooking prime rib to everyone's tastes for approximately 130 guests is a feat, but the staff nailed it. Our guests also had the option of chicken or vegan. All of the food for our wedding was made in house, including our beautiful wedding cake, which looked like something out of a wedding magazine. After dinner, guests were directed up to the 3rd floor - the "Red Room". The National Club put down a dance floor for us, and our DJ's equipment was no issue from an A/V perspective. We danced the night away, and had delicious late night food including sliders, pizza, and fries. My husband and I stayed at the Club that night, as did some of our wedding party. Words cannot express my gratitude towards the National Club team. Renata Zaborowski supported us in every capacity to ensure that this was the best day of our lives. Chef, the kitchen, serving and bar staff, with special mention to Jose Sorto, were unbelievable. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

For the 3rd year in a row one of my customers has used the National Club as the main venue for all events for the season. As an event planner for 25 years, with events across North America, I have never found a better establishment to work with. Everybody from the Club house manager to the person who greets you at the door is top notch. Staff remember your name and smile and say hello. After 3 years some even give me a hug hello. The venue is fantastic, the food above average, even the AV is top quality. We have held several types of events at the National Club and every request has been met with a smile and quickly looked after. If you find anything not to your satisfaction mention it and someone will help resolve the problem. This venue is all about customer service. It is evident in everything they do from start to finish they will partner with you to make your event what you want. This is a hidden gem in the heart of the city. I would highly recommend to anyone that they take a look at the National Club.

We hold our AGM at the venue annually and always have the best service and excellent food! The entire venue is beautiful and always a memorable experience. We also recently held an intimate dinner in the Goldwin Smith Room, and it was superb. Beautiful, historic room with a pretty fireplace and lots of natural light. Always a pleasure hosting events here.

We held our event at National Club on May 7th. Everyone loved the warm intimate environment that the main dining room had. The waiters and IT person were great and made sure we had everything we needed. Laurie, the clubhouse manager was wonderful too and made sure everything was clear to me while organizing over phone and email so that I knew exactly what to do on the event day even though I had never actually been there before. Everything went according to plan. Thank you National Club, we hope to have another event with you one day.

This event space is fabulous! We had our wedding here on May 4th and it exceeded our expectations. Renata and the team were so attentive and professional. The food was great! The look of the venue is manor style and is very elegant. Would recommend this place ten times over! Perks of using the space is the hotel room floor. This allowed our family and bridal part to book rooms (5 in total) with a special bridal suite. Our guests raved about the venue.
