About The Athletic Club Of Columbus Wedding Venue

136 East Broad Street, Columbus, OH 43215

The Athletic Club of Columbus, or ACC, has been a social hub for Columbus’s political and business communities for over a hundred years. Founded in 1912, the Club was founded by a group of business professionals who wanted to create a space for social and athletic adventures. In 1915, they moved into their official six-story building, which still lives to this day – and is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 

Today, the Athletic Club is still a popular gathering space. With athletic facilities like an indoor pool and fitness center, group fitness classes, and personal training, it’s a popular place for a great workout and socialization. They also have several onsite restaurants for both casual and formal dining. 

Details of the Grounds

In addition to a variety of membership amenities and facilities, the Athletic Club of Columbus is also home to several beautiful indoor event spaces. 

You and your partner can exchange vows in front of a grand and ornately carved fireplace, with a mantle adorned with your signature wedding florals. The walls are paneled with a rich mahogany, which complements a chevron-patterned hardwood floor and a beautifully detailed ceiling. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring in an excess of natural light, which reflects off of beautiful crystal chandeliers for an extra touch of elegance. It is a formal space that still feels intimate and cozy for up to 200 guests. 

For your reception, the Main Ballroom is the perfect place to celebrate. Attached to the main ceremony space, this room has details like brass chandeliers, bay windows, and white and gold decor. It’s a large room that can accommodate up to 350 people and is just neutral enough to accommodate any color palette or design theme.
