Congratulations on your engagement. We are excited and thrilled you will be stepping into the most wonderful journey and exciting event of your life and would love to share it with you.

Over a century ago, L'Unione Italiana (The Italian Club) was founded by a small visionary group who realized that by uniting together, the Italian community of Tampa could overcome many of the social and economic challenges that confronted those "turn-of-the-century" immigrants from Italy. Because of the courage, imagination, resiliency and pride that our ancestors brought to this country and instilled in us, we find ourselves, at the end of this century, so much better off socially, economically and educationally than our immigrant ancestors were. The image of the gaunt, threadbare, and downtrodden immigrants carrying suitcases has been replaced by the appearance of thriving, frequently fashionable, and confident entrepreneurs, educators and professionals carrying briefcases.

Since reaching our 100 year anniversary, we now celebrate our unique and beautiful building by opening it up to the public for special occasions. Our building is not only unique, but beautiful with elegant features to make a lasting impression on you and your guests. We strive to get every detail right and will handle as much or as little of the planning as you need.

We welcome you to come and take a look at the historic Italian Club and let us host your ceremony, cocktail hour and wedding reception. Congratulations again, and we look forward to meeting you.

Please contact us directly at Dona@Italian-club.org or give us a call to set up a time for a tour at (813) 248-3316. Read less

I loved the historic look the building gave and having my wedding in Ybor made my husband's family history stand out as well. Donna and Katie helped us so much and worked around with our craziness. Donna even helped us with setting up so we could be financially stable for the wedding. I thank you all so much for dealing with our nonsense.

If you are looking for a classy one stop shop for the wedding of your dreams ...Look no further! The Italian club in Ybor City is an absolutely beautiful venue for any event. I took advantage of using the whole building and its aesthetics for my wedding in March. The wedding took place in the theater, cocktails were in the Cantina (Speak easy) , and the reception was in the ballroom. The staff was on top of every detail and made my vision come to life. A pleasure to work with. Liquor prices are unbeatable as well. The pictures came out amazing! Loved our wedding here!

The Italian Club really set the backdrop for a magical wedding. The building is so beautiful that it just naturally lends itself to being a wonderful venue. We rented the whole Club and had our ceremony in the theater, a cocktail hour in the cantina, and our reception on the top floor in the ballroom.

We felt so well cared for by Katie and Josue in the office. They were extremely patient with us and so accommodating of everything we asked for in the months leading up to our wedding, and even the day of our wedding. Having Josue around was like having a free wedding coordinator/planner to help think through the many details. They have great contacts and readily share their preferred vendors with their brides and grooms, which is like having a friend in the business. I have rarely met two more caring, sincere individuals. What a treat they both were to work with!

We couldn't have been any happier with the Italian Club. It was such a beautiful place to start our married life!!

Not only is the building absolutely beautiful, but Cheryl and Waylon were just wonderful to work with. The building is historic and beautifully charming. It has a very romantic historic Tampa feel. We rented the cantina for our cocktail hour and the ballroom for our reception. But honestly the best part about the Italian Club is Cheryl and Waylon. Cheryl is the coordinator for the club and Waylon is actually the in house cater and chef of Wayl of a Time Catering. You don�t have to use them if you use the building but I don�t know why you wouldn�t. They will do anything you want and the food is absolutely delicious. We had three stations: Cuban, action pasta and action sushi. Everyone was talking about the food. All of it was wonderful! We especially received a lot of praise for the sushi. Waylon brings in a phenomenal sushi chef and everyone kept going back for more. During the reception Cheryl acts as your wedding coordinator taking care of everything! She even had every kind of food brought to our table so we didn�t have to waste time in line. She was so attentive and our reception would not have been so perfect without her. I just can�t say enough about Cheryl and Waylon. They are truly the best! I highly recommend all brides and grooms to visit them and the Italian Club!

The room was beautiful- the facilities excellent. There was another event on the floor below us, but there was no problem with parking, noise or interuption from outside people. Alice was so helpful and friendly with her arrangement and attention to detail. My caterer enjoyed working in the facility, and the band found them easy to work with as well.

Perfect venue for a wedding. Three floors allow you and your guests to stay in one place for the entire event-- wedding in the theater, cocktail hour in the cantina and the reception in the ballroom. Italian Club staff functioned partly as the wedding planner during the night of. Beautiful building, beautiful rooms- all very charming. Highly recommend!
