"I have been meaning to write about the great experience for my eldest daughter's baby shower, but in the meantime we were graced with another grandchild and had another baby shower at the Metropolis Ballroom. Both showers were awesome, from the venue to the detailed service and scrumptious food. Jamie and Courtney are patient, helpful and detail oriented. The wait staff is also so very accommodating. I would definitely recommend. After the shower, we brought the food home and had round 2, Still delicious, I had many banquet parties, and was utmost satisfied. I would definitely recommend for any venue."
"I had my wedding ceremony and reception at the Metropolis and it was amazing. Everyone there was so wonderful to work with and I can't say enough about Shawna, their wedding director. She has fabulous ideas and she made everything flow so smoothly with the whole planning process through the big day. There are so many exciting things you can do with the Metropolis Ballroom to make it your style and the staff was wonderful to work with- my guests continue to tell me how great they were. I just wish we could do it all over again!! Thank you and a special thanks to Shawna!!!"
"We held a corporate event at the Metropolis in Sept. 2016. The event was originally to be held at another venue that had shut down less than two weeks from the date of the event. Thankfully, the Metropolis had the date free! The staff at the Metropolis went above and beyond to help us transition ALL the details of the event smoothly in such a short amount of time. Courtney provided outstanding service which helped keep our stress level low. We received several compliments from our guests regarding the venue and the service provided. I would highly recommend using this beautiful, unique space to host your event."
"Shawna was a huge help from the beginning of wedding planning through every last detail of our perfect weekend. Our guests were raving about the beautiful details of the venue and the delicious food. The staff was so accommodating and put us at ease, ensuring every minute was smooth and perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything more! Thank you to the Metropolis and our wedding coordinator, Shawna McGarry!"

"The Metropolis Ballroom is a beautiful contemporary venue with a wide open feeling, a high ceiling, and very cool chandeliers. An elegant, but yet warm and inviting ambiance. The food was delicious and the staff was excellent. A lovely terrace compliments this ballroom. I highly recommend this venue."
"Tamara and I wanted to sincerely thank you for all the extra effort you personally put towards Heather and Matt's wedding.

"Many thanks to you and your skilled staff at the Metropolis for a simply smashing ceremony and reception for my sister's wedding. Throughout the evening I know both families felt they could relax and enjoy themselves knowing the details were being addressed and guests needs being met. Cayley and Mike were all smiles the entire evening thanks to the organization and attention of your staff. The Metropolis is truly a beautiful, elegant venue that works for today's bride and groom. I plan on recommending your services for all couples I know looking for a wonderful ceremony and reception!"
"We want to thank you for all your attention during Brett and Elizabeth's wedding, both the planning and the event itself. We really feel you went above and beyond!

Many, Many Thanks!"

"From the moment of my initial phone call and first visit, I knew the Metropolis Ballroom was the perfect venue for my event. Yesterday, the shower I had for my daughter-in-law in the Harmony Suite was PERFECT. The room looked gorgeous. The Captain and the wait-staff were wonderful, and the food was incredibly delicious. This was the first time that any of my guests had ever been to the Metropolis Ballroom and, I can honestly say, that they were in awe. Some of the compliments I received were, "This is the best catered food I have ever eaten," and "I have never been to a nicer shower". This was all due to you and your staff for making my vision of a fun, beautiful and dazzling shower come to fruition.
The Chef created a marvelous meal. The salad was spectacular, the chicken was tender, and the pasta and veggies were fresh, colorful and flavorful. I noticed that there was not an apple tart dessert morsel left on any one of the fancy dessert plates. Please inform Chef of how much we loved everything.
You could not have selected a more efficient Captain for us than Halina. She was on top of everything, and as delightful as she could be. The servers, Jen and Nina, were attentive, pleasant, and responsive to everyone. These women made the shower an afternoon of splendor and delight.
Three cheers to you for everything you did to honor every request of mine, for your thoughtful suggestions, and, most especially, for treating us as special clients. That is a unique talent to make someone who is having a small event feel as though she matters. I would not hesitate to ever recommend the Metropolis Ballroom to anyone. Actually, I am trying to find a reason to give another party.
Thank you from the bottom of my socks because the bottom of my heart isn't deep enough. It was a pure pleasure to work with you. Every phone call and every email was always answered promptly, and you delivered everything you promised, and more! I hope our paths will cross again."
"I just wanted to thank you for all of your help in making my mom's surprise 50th so special. I have received numerous calls and complements about how fun and wonderful the night was. Of course the true test was whether my mom had a great time or not- I think by the mere fact she never left the dance floor and while looking at photos afterwards asked, " The tablecloths were purple??" says a lot.
So thank you again for all of your help and creative input. It really was a night we'll never forget."
"I am still coming to terms with the fact that our big day is actually behind us. And while it's bittersweet to have crossed that pivotal milestone, we are so thankful for all of the joys we shared that day and memories we will cherish forever. And I know that you were no small part of the success of that day not to mention the fun, stress and accomplishment of the journey that preceded it. To this day, one of my favorite memories was the night we had the food tasting. It was that night that I knew the event would be a triumph. The food was fabulous that night and on the big day and perfectly complemented by the space and mood you helped us construct. The details do matter and you practice that mentality day in and day out. I love that about you and appreciate the energy you bring to those discussions more than words can say. Details do matter and they mattered on my wedding day- the dress and rose petals, the champagne, the gifts for my parents, the help with my dress; those details enriched my memories and for that I am forever grateful to you. Thank you for everything."
"The food was beyond amazing, we are still getting compliments- it meant so much to us to have it veggie- so it was huge! Thank you!"
"Our sincere thanks for your awesome support. Every detail considered and executed with professionalism and utmost creativity!"
"Mike and Jen's wedding receptions was the bride's dream come true. The room was stunning, with the candle light and flowers glowing off the hanging tiny ceiling lights. The silver chairs added to it's elegance and the white table clothes and eggplant napkins pulled it all together. The head table was gorgeous! The silver tablecloths and organza looked so special! I was told by many guests that dinner was excellent! My oldest son, had recently attended a wedding reception at the Four Seasons in Chicago. Afterward he raved about the room and meal. According to Dan yesterday, the Metropolis blew them away. The food he said, was steps above the Four Seasons . and the room was amazing. The balcony added the opportunity to enjoy the lovely night we were given. All in all, the night was a grand success. I can't thank you enough for your help and direction in the planning. You certainly perfected your craft."
"Thanks for helping make this event a wonderful memory for our parents!"
"Everyone loves the place, it's so cozy and yet the price is very reasonable. Attendants were very friendly and showed smiles on their faces throughout the night. My sister was surprised and. All of you did a good job for making it a memorable one. Thank you so much."
"You helped make the event easy to put together. It was elegant yet comfortable, thank you."
