Right in the heart of downtown LA is an elegant piece of history. The twelve-story Beaux-Arts-style building designed in 1912 is home to the Los Angeles Athletic Club. The club occupies the top three floors of the building, boasting panoramic views of the iconic LA skyline, including the nearby Staples Center, Los Angeles Convention Center, and LA Live.
The Los Angeles Athletic Club dates all the way back to 1880 before the building was even built. Staying at the hotel or hosting an event there requires membership in the club, which you can purchase for a small $25 fee, and which allows you access to all of the club’s amenities–the bars and restaurants and the athletic facilities. And it’s your entry into using the luxurious facilities for a beautiful wedding.
Getting ready for your wedding at this venue is a joyful experience. As part of your wedding package, you will have access to one of the hotel’s nine suites for wedding prep. Each suite in this boutique hotel is unique and custom-designed. All suites are furnished in warm, stately hues and patterns, including Frette linens on the beds. You’ll have the time of your life relaxing, being pampered, and making memories together with your bridal party. As an added bonus, this venue includes an overnight suite for the bride and groom.
From the lush rooftop garden with sweeping views of downtown LA to the opulent architecture inside the club, this venue has plenty of backdrops to magical photos. You can find the perfect spot to meet up and share a few tender moments together while you see one another for the first time before your ceremony.
We at Lin and Jirsa Wedding Photography would be honored to capture each moment and emotion of your day, big and small, posed and candid.

The club’s twelfth-floor rooftop terrace with panoramic views of surrounding LA is an unforgettable place to tie the knot. Additionally, one benefit of booking a wedding at the club is the opportunity to customize your experience, like choosing to host your ceremony in a nearby church, such as the majestic church that the couple pictured below chose. At the Los Angeles Athletic Center, you get to create your wedding exactly as you dreamed it.
The Centennial Ballroom will make you and your guests feel like you’ve been transported to another time for your reception. The mahogany pillars, the ornately carved ceiling, and the burgundy velvet drapes all evoke The Great Gatsby era. Here you will be able to dine, toast, and dance the night away in style.
Who can we choose to cater our wedding?
The club asks that you use their excellent in-house caterer, who will work with you to plan a menu that will delight your senses.
Can we play amplified music?
You can indoors, or on the rooftop until 10 PM.
Will there be a dance floor?
The venue will set up a dance floor for you in the Centennial Ballroom.
The Los Angeles Athletic Club is located at 431 W 7th St, Los Angeles, CA 90014.
