The facility is amazing with its 270 degree view of Lake Michigan, the busy Milwaukee Harbor, McKinley Marina and the increasingly amazing Milwaukee skyline. We needed to make some adjustments to our plans on-the-fly during the event and the Zilli staff accommodated us wonderfully. We also felt the value was excellent. The food was prepared to our liking and the bar service was commendable
Beautiful and breathtaking!! My sister had her wedding here on a perfect sunny day in July! The scenery is amazing! Lake, harbor, skyline, and the Art Museum views! Accommodations were nice too! Good dressing and kitchen areas! Clean and well decorated though out! Lots of great photo opportunities! Just make sure you have a good & experienced photographer who knows how to handle different/weird lighting!
We loved our wedding ceremony at the Milwaukee Community Sailing Center!! The views were spectacular and the space was gorgeous!! All of the people who we worked with were extremely friendly and accommodating to meeting our needs. This place should not be overlooked! I would host another event there in a heartbeat!
