I just had my wedding at the Metropolis Ballroom on 10/23/10 and could not be more THRILLED with how it turned out!! The space is just beautiful - we were so sick of looking at the standard ballrooms with the ugly carpet and outdated everything, the ballroom at the Metropolis is breathtaking with it's high ceilings and wood floor (you can some of our pictures at vraiblog)
Michael guided us through the process from start to finish. We didn't have it in our budget for a wedding planner but we clearly didn't need one. I was surprised at how involved he was, he was constantly giving us ideas for decorating and was very good at returning our many emails. He even accompanied us to the florist on several occasions! Everything went off without a hitch - the appetizers were plentiful and delicious (loved the scallops!), food was awesome (I recommend the London Broil), cake turned out perfect, and Michael along with Halina made sure to keep us on schedule without being the least bit bothersome. All of our guests told us they had a great time. One of my bridesmaids just got engaged and now she's seriously considering having the reception at the Metropolis as well!
I do feel bad for the bride who recently had the oh so ""traumatic"" cake experience, but seriously - it's JUST A CAKE! And to take the rampage to a newspaper? In my opinion, it's hardly worth throwing such a tantrum and I feel bad that Michael had to have is name dragged through the mud like that. For future brides, I would highly recommend the Metropolis for your wedding. Go see the space for yourself and meet Michael - you won't be disappointed by either of them.

The Metropolis and all their staff were absolutely amazing for our wedding. From the first time my husband and I saw the space, we were hooked. The location is perfect, and the venue is absolutely beautiful. There was MORE than enough space for everyone and everything. We loved that they only have one event per night so literally all the attention is given to your wedding rather than some hotels where they were going to have 6+ weddings the night of our wedding. Without saying anything negative about Michael (seriously, he's a great guy!), I will warn you that he wants to have input on everything to do with the wedding. It's a GREAT perk for any couple who feels overwhelmed by the whole wedding planning process. I think if I asked him, he would have literally gone dress shopping with me. :) Use him! Ask him any questions, ask for his input, he's there to help! Michael makes sure all the events run smoothly; it's his job to make everything perfect, and that's his intention. The night of our wedding was absolutely perfect. Everything went as planned and the staff was amazing. Helena was our event manager for the night, and she was beyond awesome. There was not one complaint we had about anything that night. Without hesitation I would recommend the Metropolis to any couple looking for a unique venue. It's not going to be the cheapest venue out there by any means, but you pay for what you get. Your money will be very well spent at the Metropolis. We literally had probably 90% of our guests tell us it was the best wedding with the best food they have ever been to. Thanks Metropolis; you pulled through for us!
