Historic, Original, Romantic

Have your wedding, special event or business meeting at a magnificent hall in the heart of Newark's Ironbound section. Our unique hall will take you and your guests to Portugal, with walls adorned with hand painted 'azulejos' depicting the most important moments in Portugal's long history and high ceilings decorated with sparkling chandeliers. Sport Club Portugues, one of America's oldest Portuguese social clubs, is not your typical reception site. Your guests will be amazed as they enter the hall, featuring granite staircases and brass railings and they will be enchanted throughout the event.

When you reserve our hall, your event will be the only one at the facility, so that you and your guests have exclusive use of the hall.

Also, we do not believe in 'house vendors'. We allow outside caterers, florists, decorators, and so on, to access the hall, allowing you to make your event as you want it. Whether you want Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, or any other type of food for your event, your caterer will have access to our kitchen for food preparation.

Everything about Sport Club Portugues will surpass your (and your guests) highest expectations. Be prepared to fall in love...
