Indian wedding reception Club Auto Sport

Club Auto Sport

Club Auto Sport is a unique, museum venue for a sangeet, a reception and/or a ceremony that does not include an open flame – as this venue does not allow an open flame. They do not allow you to bring in alcohol – they provide all bartending and alcohol and offer a variety of packages and options.

Club Auto Sport’s ballroom seats up to 400 guests with a dance floor and a stage. They recommend that the bride(s) and groom(s) arrive pretty much dressed. There are large bathrooms on-site but they’re setup for final touch ups vs. getting ready at the venue.

If you are considering Club Auto Sport for your ceremony, the venue seats up to 500 guests. Note, if you are planning to have your ceremony and reception at Club Auto Sport, the events must be continuous without a break in-between.

That means if you wanted to have a late afternoon ceremony (without a flame), immediately followed by cocktail hour and then the reception you could do that at Club Auto Sport. However, if you plan to serve lunch after the ceremony followed by a break, with guests returning in the evening for cocktail hour and the reception – Club Auto Sport is not a good fit.

This venue has complimentary parking in front and behind the ballroom.
