Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With a rich history dating back to the 1800's, this "grand dame" of Evanston has hosted hundreds of noteworthy events. Its classic architecture, black-and-white marble entrance, and double staircase never fail to impress. And with only one event at a time, they really do make you feel very special.
  • The first floor glass-enclosed Sun Room is a delightful spot for a ceremony. You can then easily segue to the beautifully appointed Music Room and Tea Room, connected to each other by French doors, for a seamless flow from "I dos" to cocktails and reception.
  • Want a heightened sense of drama? The Grand Ballroom is perfect. Its soaring two-story barrel ceiling, decorative millwork, full stage, and stunning chandeliers set the scene for an elegant affair. Or just rent the entire clubhouse for an unforgettable celebration.
