The Henry Clay is a beautiful element of history in downtown Louisville, Kentucky, offering unparalleled events spaces. Enter through the double doors, proceed through the barrel-vaulted foyer, and then look up to the beautiful 2-story space with an original 1920s ornate stained glass ceiling.

That's only the beginning of the beauty and history held in The Henry Clay.

We had two adult men, who are tenants of the Henry Clay, join our wedding celebration. Not only did they help themselves to drinks at our open bar and who knows what else, but they are in about 50 of our wedding photos. We had gifts stolen from our gift table which we can’t pin on anyone, as we don’t have the proof but it is a bit unsettling to know that we signed a contract with the understanding that no outsiders could gain entry to our event and all it took was an elevator ride down to the second floor for these men. What is even more disturbing is the way the Henry Clay has chosen to handle the situation.

We reached out to the Henry Clay to confront the issue of their tenants helping themselves to our entertainment and drinks. Along with my email, I attached the photo of the two men, holding drinks from the venue. I was expecting to receive an email apologizing profusely for the lack of holding up their end of the contract. What I got instead, was an email protecting the tenants. I am appalled by the responses from the Henry Clay, the Silver Spoon and the City Properties Group, that manages the tenants of The Henry Clay. They lied to us, they protected two men that poorly represented themselves and not once were we offered a sincere apology that acknowledged the mistakes on their end.

So, from one bride to another, DO NOT BOOK YOUR WEDDING WITH THE HENRY CLAY. You may have a solid headcount of 200 people for your wedding but that’s not including the tenants of the Henry Clay that can come on down and join the party and rest assured, the staff will take zero responsibility for the unwanted guests attendance.

As far as the beauty of the facility, it definitely exceeds the standard. We had our wedding on the fourth floor with the cocktail hour in the South room and the reception in the Grand Ballroom, and the space is fantastic. City Soultions and Sarah were as wonderful as the facility itself. In booking the Henry Clay, you must use their catering service, and that was where our qualms fell. We did find it rather difficult to work with Silver Spoon and Michelle. Although they were very good at responding in the beginning before the contract was signed, we soon found it impossible to hear back from them. We had also discussed with them bringing in our own appetizers due to a mixed culture/vegetarian cuisine, however they would not allow this and instead said we could not have the dishes we wanted because they were not able to make them. Somehow, it feels that there could have been a more happy medium reached, however there were not many concessions made on their part to make this happen.

The Henry Clay was great! We mostly worked with Sarah and she was so sweet and answered any questions we had right away. We did have some struggles getting ahold of Jessica, I am not sure why.

The Henry Clay was so wonderful to work with! Our wedding was on the second floor Grand Ballroom, with our cocktail hour in the South Room on the same floor. It was so nice to have everything on one floor, and it was easily accessible. On a Saturday, street parking was easy to come by for our guests.
You have to use the Silver Spoon (Henry Clay’s exclusive caterer) and WOW they do not disappoint.
Overall spectacular, beautiful space and a great time!

My only complaint was that the bar staff really needs to do a better job of ensuring that underage drinkers dont have access to the alcohol. I understand that someone else could get it for them, but there were times where I saw people underage approach the bar and get served.

Otherwise everything else was excellent!

This was absolutely the PERFECT space for our wedding and reception! I truly believe it wouldn't have been the same if it weren't on the 4th floor of the Henry Clay. The flow of the space was great and each room was so beautiful. We received so many compliments and comments on how cool the space was. Jessica was so easy to work with and was so flexible for anything we needed. Love the Henry Clay!

Could not have been happier wth The Henry Clay for our wedding. The whole process was a wonderful experience due to The Henry Clay's wonderful staff and delicious food. All of our guests were very complimentary of our wonderful venue choice. Dina handled everything beautifully and was always very easy to get in touch with to answer all our questions. Several of our friends are going to look at The Henry Clay if and when their children get married. Thank you again for a great memory.

The Henry Clay as a building is a wonderful historic site and has many things to offer but the service isn't welcoming or responsive. We had to call several times to get anything answered or resolved. The guests were sweating and the room couldn't be cooled enough. They didn't seem to care. We had to clean the hall before set up could take place. These are things I would've thought the amount of money we paid for 4 hours would have been checked and taken care of. Since the original coordinator left our experience wasn't pleasant nor professional. I wish I could recommend but I can't.
