The Albany Club

Toronto, Ontario View map

About

The elegant Albany Club, located in Toronto, came into being in 1882 when friends and supporters of John A. Macdonald, the first Prime Minister of Canada, established the club. This politically minded Conservative club prospers with its more than 850 members. The stunning spires of the nearby St. James Cathedral, the gorgeous gazebo and the serene waterfall in Market Lane all serve as lovely backgrounds for photos.

Facilities and capacity

The Albany offers a variety of indoor spaces for wedding ceremonies, receptions and rehearsal dinners. The main dining room has a capacity for 160 guests, 200 for a stand up reception, while the Sir John A. Macdonald room is great for hosting a cocktail party with its access to the rooftop lounge. On the weekends, the wedding party can enjoy exclusive use of the venue.

    A Historic Building with Exceptional Service

    We had the most wonderful experience hosting our wedding at the Albany Club. What a special experience to have the entire building to ourselves. The food is exceptional, the decor is full of warmth and history and the service from the entire team is outstanding. Our personal event coordinator, Murielle, went above and beyond to ensure our wedding was a great success. She even checked-in with us multiple times throughout the evening to make sure we were well fed and looked after. Highly recommend the Albany Club for your next event!

    Wedding of my dreams

    The Albany club is such an amazing place to hold your wedding. We got married there Sept 14 2019. Emalee was so great to work with! She was quick to respond and made sure everything went smooth the day of the wedding! The venue is beautiful and it's great that you get the whole place to yourself!

    They made my wedding planning a piece of cake

    April, the coordinator there was nothing but helpful since day 1!
    We chose this venue because of her, and of course the royal feel they gave us from the venue.
    If you are looking for a venue that will take care of catering, planning the day and organizing everything for you, THIS IS IT!

    Beautiful & Elegant Venue

    We had a great experience with the Albany Club for our wedding. We had originally planned to be married on June 20th, 2020 but had to postpone to the fall due to the pandemic. They were very accommodating and reassured us that they would still be available to host us and would do everything in their power to make it the day we had originally envisioned. There was a bit of changing hands as our original coordinator left the club but they were always helpful along the way and our final contact, Dmitry did everything in his power to make the day go smoothly. The venue itself is gorgeous and elegant. We had the entire building for the day which made it even more special. We were even able to get ready in one of the upstairs rooms. The service was impeccable and the servers constantly came around to check on us. The food was delicious, especially the tiramisu. When they served the guests, the food was brought out with metal covers ensuring that the meal stayed hot. Overall we would highly recommend this space for your future wedding reception.

    5 stars just isn't enough!! :)

    I would highly recommend this venue to all Toronto couples out there! From start to finish, the experience was truly wonderful, and I can't thank the staff enough. Emalee was amazing - she helped with planning, strategizing, layouts and floor plans, food selection, budgeting, you name it. She was friendly, courteous and oh-so patient – you are the best Em! Regarding the venue itself, truly stunning architecture and history. It was classy, sophisticated and elegant – with not much added décor needed!! I couldn’t have asked for a more special day.

    Here’s a quick summary of my thoughts :)

    Building: You also get the WHOLE building to yourself, including a beautiful rooftop patio, which our guests were free to use at any time during the reception. We received so many compliments on the space, everyone just loved it. So many photography opportunities too! And despite being in the heart of the city, it’s super quiet inside – it’s nice to have such a calm and tranquil space amidst the busy environment of downtown.

    Food: DELICIOUS!! We also got a ton of compliments on the food, I’m still getting feedback on the steak and risotto. People left very full and very happy 😊. Chef Jay is world class and we were not disappointed! The meal was amazing. Thank you Chef!

    Budget: Reasonably priced when you compare this stunning venue to other more common places to get married in the city. Some venues charge an absolute fortune, but the Albany Club was affordable and you get SO much bang for your buck!

    Staff: Everyone was outstanding. The wait staff were extremely pleasant and courteous during the whole reception. Emalee and Jon bent over backwards to help make our day special, among the other amazing staff members who tended to us while we were setting up and getting ready in the morning too. Thank you all!

    A dream come true.

    From start to finish everything was perfect. Everyone said it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever seen.
    Emalee the catering director/ wedding coordinator took care of anything I could have been worried about. We couldn’t be happier.
    The food was flawless, as was everything else.
    It was like a dream.

    Beautiful venue with so much amazing character

    Very reasonably priced, so much character and history in the space and such a dream. Emily and the Albany Club team worked so so hard to make our wedding a dream, and they succeeded. They helped to make our day perfect!

    Amazing Venue, Value and Coordination

    The Albany Club was a beautiful venue that we really enjoyed and were proud to have our wedding in. Incredible Service, Great Value for a Downtown Location, Amazing Food. And best of all, April Thornton, the Catering Director/ Wedding Sherpa/ Planner extraordinaire, who was a big reason of why we chose this place.

    Absolutely Perfect

    We had our wedding in October 2019 at the Albany Club. I truly can't say enough about how wonderful everything was. From the look of the venue, to the service, to the food. We received so many compliments on how gorgeous everything looked and how delicious everything tasted. Special thanks to the Albany's coordinator Emalee who was easy going, accommodating and so personable it felt like she was part of the family. It could not have been more perfect.
