One of Lincoln’s newest venues sparkles with exquisite renovations. The Lincoln Commercial Club immerses guests in the glamour and formality of the last century. The ballroom has had many lives, but its recent restoration has returned it to its original elegance and beyond, calling back to the early 1900s when the ballroom was the host to Lincoln’s Commercial Club, the city’s men-only business club. Lavish with antiques and fine reproductions collected over nearly a decade, the venue reflects a style that would have graced a club of a century ago with Neoclassical tables and seating, Empire throne chairs, original paintings and sculptures. The venue includes three guest rooms and a master suite, located on the balcony level overlooking the ballroom. It is the perfect venue for your wedding, get together or other meeting to impress.
