Neighborhoods: Central Business District - Downtown
John (the owner) is very particular about how he runs his business, and the result is a beautiful venue with vendors who work hard to stay on his \"allowed vendor\" list. I have been told by several of my guests that it was one of the best ceremony/reception locations they have seen in a long time.
Services Used: Ceremony & Reception Venue
This venue is not only beautiful, but the owner, John Berkowitz, and the coordinator, Carla Mazotti, are wonderful! They did everything they could to make our wedding amazing. They were very flexible when meeting with us, which was helpful because I worked full time and went to nursing school. We had every single wedding event at Club 1000 (rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception). The parking was amazing, as it's the only place downtown that has it's own parking structure. The event spaces were all beautiful. Carla was there for every event. The bartenders were wonderful. They made sure I had a drink in my hand all night :) I am so glad I chose Club 1000 as my event space. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location and better people to work with!
We absolutely LOVED our venue and got so many compliments from guests. We used the 2nd floor and although the view isn't quite as spectacular as the 6th floor, it was beautiful nonetheless. John and Carla have been hosting weddings at this venue for years, so they've got it all figured out. They responded promptly to emails and phone calls, were helpful when we requested changing certain things, and were attentive and prompt in fixing things that weren't to our liking. Carla coordinated all of our vendors for the wedding, so I didn't have to worry about a thing! We also rented out the bridal suite for the gals to get ready before the wedding and I wouldn't have done it any other way. We had plenty of space to spread out for hair, make-up, snacks, and mingling. The photographers and videographer had more than enough room to move around and get the shots & footage they needed without being in our way. We also rented the bridal suite for an 11pm-1am karaoke after party that Club 1000 offers. It does come at an extra charge, but we had a blast. Club 1000 definitely came at a cost, but when all was said and done, we both agreed it was well worth it!
AVOID, personnell are unfriendly and unhelpful! – Please do not get caught up in how beautiful Club 1000 is or how reasonably priced it is, the owner is horrible to work with. Once he has your name signed on the dotted line good luck getting you to call you back, and when you do hear from him you will feel that he is annoyed and doesn't have time for you. If you are looking to book Club 1000 for your wedding reception as I was, you don't need this extra stress while planning what is supposed to be the most important and special day of your life. After I booked this place I heard from several in the industry that he is a horrible person to work with and I regretted my decision. He kept our deposit because we didn't have quite as many people attend as we had estimated, you should have your RSVP s in stone or it will cost you an extra $500. Also, the list of caterers you have to choose from are HORRIBLE, one place never returned our calls for an estimate after we had a tasting and the one we booked had good food at the tasting but the food at the reception was hard, cold and gross. Also, the DJ s on his list are no picnic either. The one that we chose pronounced my name and my bridesmaids name wrong after we had just gone over the phonetics. A bunch of incompetent fools!!!! Please go with Uptown Theater or the Mission Theater (same company as Kansas Memories Photography) instead.
