Why We Like This Place

Things that make the New Haven Lawn Club hard to resist:

The setting takes you back in time: With its stately Colonial Revival-style architecture and Art Deco details, the historic Georgian mansion evokes a bygone era and provides a classic backdrop for your celebration.

All the event spaces are so appealing: Each room has its charms, from the Art Deco sconces and chinoiserie in the Lounge, to the checkered terrazzo floor, regency columns and dual fireplaces in the Main Dining Room.

The Ballroom is unique: Where else would you find a soaring, barrel-vaulted ceiling; fanciful crystal Art Deco lighting; floor-to-ceiling windows; and a large wood-burning fireplace all in one room? There also a terrace overlooking the tennis courts!

Dining is a pleasure: All of the club’s food is prepared on site using only the freshest, most seasonal ingredients. Couples rave about the event staff, who are known for their attention to detail, professionalism and personalized service.
