My husband and i had our reception here on August 8, 2011. I was absolutely wonderful. The building itself was immaculate with hanging fixtures and embellished ceilings. the dance floor was massive which is really good for big groups like my crazy family! The establishment has a full service bar all night where the drinks were served all night free of charge. The DJ was wonderful and was really good about following people's requests while staying appropriate for the young ones in the room. The was a beautiful view of the marina from both the warm comfort of the hall as well as outside when you go out to catch some fresh air. The staff was very friendly and really made it a special event for my husband and me. Everyone after the wedding kept telling us that we "had the most fun wedding they had ever been to." Which i thought was a huge compliment which couldn't have been achieved without such a wonderful reception venue. If you're looking for a place that can mix a fabulously high-energy atmosphere with one that also breathes refinement and class, The Marina Del Rey Yacht Club is for you!
