The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis, an elegant private Clubhouse overlooking Loring Park in downtown Minneapolis, is a superb setting for your most memorable meetings and events. Each space in this historic, classical mansion inspires its own story. With 66,000 square feet of unique event spaces that radiate character and charm, The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis offers you a one-of-a-kind experience with a true sense of place.

Enter through double doors flanked by hand-carved pillars, proceed through the barrel-vaulted Foyer, and look up into the magnificent two-story, Spanish-style Lounge crowned in wood beams adorned with chandeliers custom-designed for the Club. Persian rugs cover a polished oak floor. Light from epic arched windows floods the space. Gleaming wood, hewn stone, wrought iron and marble—the rich textures, fabrics and artwork of the Clubhouse will inspire you and delight your guests. Step into the grand Ballroom, clad on all sides in hand-carved plaster relief accented with antique masterpieces of art. Enjoy an intimate meeting or celebration in the mahogany-paneled Falconer Memorial Library. Dine beneath the sculpted ceiling of our formal Dining Room, hung with bronze chandeliers and carpeted in jewel-tone, Karastan Persian rugs, or—in the warm months—under an open sky on the elegant Rooftop Terrace with its sprawling view of Loring Park and the Minneapolis skyline.

Whether yours is an intimate cocktail reception, press launch or networking event; a class reunion or an anniversary party; a board meeting or a charity gala, you’ll find our Clubhouse to be as flexible as it is refined. Let us help you imagine your next event.

See What People Are Saying

"I want to thank you and your staff for the lovely evening last night. The Woman’s Club was the perfect venue. We’ve already received numerous requests to hold our event there again next year! Fun was had by all and it was a true success.”

- Jennifer Paffel, Ready for Success

"Thank you so much for making our event so memorable. The food was wonderful! I had three personal phone calls about the mushroom ravioli. The food presentations were so professional. Where do you find servers like Shannon and her crew? They were so far beyond the “millionth customer server” as Mars is from Pluto. Service was smooth and efficient. I can’t say enough about your cooperation. Thank you for thinking of things--so many--that made our event go smoothly.”

- Beatrice Fields, Minnesota Black Women Lawyers Network

"I am so grateful to you for making our time at the Woman’s Club sublime. To say my niece Emily is over the moon is an understatement. Leah, my sister, was thrilled with the venue, too, and the many options you provided to them. Your warmth, expertise and welcoming personality are even better than when I was working with you 15 years ago to create my wedding day.”

- Sandy Puckett

“Thanks for hosting our two events. They were both great successes. Kudo’s to the pastry chef for our dessert on Wednesday night. It was amazing! I’d like to inquire about the Memorial Library for next year. I’m booking our board meeting for the next fiscal year and I thought I’d get them on the books!”

- Diane Grossman, The Sheltering Arms Foundation

“I will have to invent another event so Tim and I can work together again. What fun! It was truly divine. The room was beyond perfect, just the right size for the group. Your staff and the manager on the floor could not have been more accommodating. Thank you.”

- Janice Wilkinson

“The Woman’s Club of Minneapolis is truly an amazing place. What they do for women and children is nothing shy of amazing. The building itself is absolutely wonderful! I hope to one day to go back and maybe become a part of the Minneapolis Women's Club.”

- Ashle Elizabeth Jukes

“This a wonderful place to have a formal affair.”

- Toya Woodland

“Wow, we just got home from having brunch at your place and we were all so satisfied and happy. The service was outstanding. From the moment we walked in, we were welcomed and told it was our place and to relax and enjoy. The server we had was so nice and friendly. The food was beautifully presented and tasted so good. Everything was delightful. My partner and I took his parents here and we all had a wonderful time, we will be back and we thank you for a great experience.”

- Jase Roe

I have visited many fine clubs around the country over the last two years in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and elsewhere, and the lunch I had Saturday at the Woman’s Club ranked with the best I have had. I had the special (Fish Tacos) and not only did they taste good, but I was equally impressed with its presentation on the plate. Our server was very pleasant and did a great job. I want to compliment everyone for the fine job being done. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.
