The Sportsmen's Lodge Events Center combines a 40,000 Sq. ft. event, conference center and restaurant venue with the beauty of an urban forest. The Event Center boasts towering redwood trees and lush landscaping, as well as our famous waterfalls and ponds. Bridges and decks connect the various indoor and outdoor spaces, peaceful and lovely, amidst the busy, trendy and conveniently located community of Studio City. The Sportsmen's Lodge Event Center offers eleven unique event environments, as well as garden settings for wedding ceremonies, receptions and dinners. Our exquisitely designed River Rock Lounge, restaurant and bar, is also available for private rental. Executive Chef Marcos Arana offers creatively presented and delicious cuisine, tailored to each client's individual needs.   Our experienced Event Managers may assist you with menu and bar planning, space design and decor, audio-visual, and other services as requested.

 

In the first half of the 20th Century, the Sportsmen's Lodge was known for its trout-fishing lake where families came to catch and eat their own dinners, cooked courtesy of the Lodge's restaurant.  For detailed historical information and vintage photos, please check out Wikipedia. The Sportsmen's Lodge Events Center has long been a tradition in the San Fernando Valley, with a loyal base of fans and clients, including many

celebrities and dignitaries. The Center, and its adjacent Hotel, remain a very popular spot for Wedding Ceremonies and Receptions, Mitzvahs, Corporate, Academic and Cultural Events, Birthdays, Anniversaries, Family Reunions, Public Events and Concerts.

UPDATE 4/2/17 We're all married! Now that everything is said and done. I still keep my original review of the Sportsmen's Lodge. Our wedding ran so smoothly and without a hitch. We had a very attentive server who consistently stopped by our sweetheart table to make sure we had food and drinks. The food was AMAZING and the bartenders were so nice. Our guests loved everything that was provided. I would totally have another event at the Sportsmen's Lodge. P.S. We had our rehearsal dinner at the neighboring River Rock and that has the same catering service. Same results! Lovely people and delicious food. Truly one-stop shopping for a wedding at it's best! _______________________________________________________________________________________________ I haven't had my wedding yet but I LOVE the Sportsmen's Lodge Events Center. Everyone from the event coordinator, to the hotel staff, to the restaurant managers are extremely nice and helpful. They answered my millions of emails, clarified any questions or concerns I had, and just were always fun to talk to. I still need to go to the food tasting but I'm looking forward to adding more to my review.

Sportsmen's lodge was our Reception Venue: We read about it on WeddingWire, & my mother confirmed that she had gone to a reception here & the food was really good. We chose this place because food & ambiance was very important to us. We worked with Evelyn & Beth (Evelyn during the first part of the reception planning & Beth towards the latter part). They were both very accommodating & made sure every last detail was followed. It was a pleasure to work with them every step of the way because they were so organized; our wedding planner also had no problem working with them when she took over the month before our wedding. We especially enjoyed the food tasting because the food was so good! The food & service was excellent-their house wine, red & white, was part of our wedding package & was excellent. Our wedding guests couldn't stop raving about how good the food & alcohol was. We compared 5 different reception venues, but their wedding package was the best priced & no other reception venue could come close to everything Sportsmen's lodge offered: The package we chose came with Chiavari chairs, 5 hour open bar (house brand but all excellent), & a wide variety of appetizers, main course, & dessert to choose from, as well as a wedding cake (we paid extra because we wanted both dessert & cake), but it was worth it! We are so grateful to Evelyn & Beth for all their help. They helped make our (MY) dream wedding day come true :)

Sportsmen's Lodge was an incredible place to have my wedding and they were extremely accommodating. The hotel did a wonderful job with the ceremony, party and made guests extremely comfortable in the hotel. The grounds were so beautiful and the room had beautiful glass windows so guests could overlook the beauty outdoors all throughout the night. The hotel served wonderful food and guests were saying how great their appetizers, dinners and dessert were all night. The service was excellent and the staff were so friendly. I love this beautiful venue and would highly recommend that anyone looking for a place to have an event go to Sportsmen's Lodge.

Melissa at Sportsman's Lodge was fantastic. She was easy to work with, despite the numerous times we had to gather and exchange thoughts in order to formulate the Big Day, and always on top of her calendar, making every meeting effective and worthwhile. Melissa extended above and beyond - responding to emails, questions and concerns almost instantaneously, making us feel important and taken care of. The location is also just beautiful, especially for a summer wedding and we were extremely happy with ours just a few weeks ago. Xoxo, Mr. and Mrs. Lerner

Overall, the experience was great. I wish it was a little less pricy (and I wish that we tried to negotiate a little more), but what we got was better than I could've hoped for. It's funny, because at first I was not really impressed by the pictures of the venue, but decided to look anyway. Once there, I felt like I finally found our place. The food was FANTASTIC! Although I heard good things, I was a little nervous about it until we were at our tasting. It was so good, we wanted to lick the plates clean. We ended up getting Beef Tenderloin with mushroom sauce, Salmon with citrus sauce, vegetarian lasagna rolls, Chinese chicken salad, and a few appetizers. We got a lot of compliments over the food during and after the reception. The venue itself is very pretty and the reception room (Starlight) worked very well with our needs. I didn't feel like I needed to dress up the ceremony site (we had the larger site) too much, which saved on costs. Melissa was super helpful and answered all of my questions (hundreds of questions) with professionalism and promptness. I was very pleased by her helpfulness. You may be able to negotiate more with the other catering managers, but I know that Melissa was very reliable. I only wish that I could have also had her help the day of our wedding to iron out any kinks. But that's why it's necessary to have a day-of-coordinator. For example, if Melissa were available, she might have been able to direct vendors. My fiance (now husband) happened to notice a florist set up our ceremony site with another couple's flowers (Sportsmen's Lodge has two ceremony sites, same day). If Melissa or another staff member were more present, that might not have happened, but again REALLY important to have a day-of-wedding coordinator because once the problem was noticed, it was quickly resolved. Oh, and if you book here, please ask lots of questions about the contract. It seems more strict than I found the actual practice of the venue to be. For example, the contract may say one meal choice only, but I was allowed to choose 2 plus a vegetarian option, not counting anybody with a special diet for no charge. All in all, I am very very pleased with how things turned out. All the staff was super helpful and professional. The food was fabulous. The catering manager was a great help. My guests really enjoyed the venue and a few people told me they've never been to such an elegant wedding :) That's a great compliment to the beauty of the venue (without having extremely outrageous prices tacked on).

My ceremony and reception were both held here. Melissa- our contact at sportsmen's- was really easy to work with. She was there every step of the way to answer all of my questions and the staff was great. Our ceremony was outdoors in the North Gazebo. It was everything that I wanted, outdoors, gazebo, draping, it was beautiful and affordable. The reception was held in the Cascade/Starlight room. Great layout. I especially loved the dance floor. The food was great. The staff was amazing. I definitely would recommend this spot to anyone planning their wedding.

They made everything so easy for us. Having them able to set up everything and take care of planning the meals and everything made it so easy for us to thoroughly enjoy our day without the stress of having to coordinate different vendors. We were in the waterfalls room with a beautiful view on a beautiful day. Joanie helped us a lot.
