We had our wedding at the Kenilworth Club and couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. It is a beautiful venue that is somehow simple and extravagant at the same time. Lisa, the club's director was incredibly helpful throughout the entire planning process, and gave us lots of advice and suggestions on vendors and general wedding planning, and quickly answering any questions that we had.

Nick is another Kenilworth employee who helps set up and coordinate everything the day of. He was very behind the scenes and modest and did a fantastic job getting everything put exactly as we had imagined.

It is a truly unique and beautiful venue both inside and out. We had our ceremony outside, cocktail hour in and out, and reception in. It is one of a kind and we received so many compliments on it both the day of and long after.

Everyone at the club is also very attentive to detail. The outside looked flawless on our wedding day, they had a small piano tuned the day before just for good measure, and helped with other small touches as well.

All in all, working with the Kenilworth Club was a breeze and I would recommend it as a wedding venue to anyone looking for a venue different than your typical country club where you can truly make it your own.

We have no regrets and a lot of wonderful memories.

We had our wedding reception at the Kenilworth Club in September 2009. We couldn't have picked a better place. I would rate it higher than 5 if I could. Lisa and the staff were incredible professional and extremely helpful when it came to answering all of my questions and dealing with any concerns that popped up along the way. This place is a hidden gem along the North Shore and our reception photos are absolutely gorgeous in the extremely spacious ballroom with the windows and chandeliers.

Lisa was lovely to work with, as was the gentleman (Nick) who assisted us with setup and cleanup.

Beautiful venue with high ceilings and lots of gorgeous wood and stained glass details. A great size for a reception of about 100 or less (100 might be a little crowded but could fit-- we had 65 with plenty of room to spare leaving one whole end of the venue for cocktail and photo booth area).

Lisa worked directly with several of our vendors (photobooth, DJ, caterer) to arrange a number of the details and was EXTREMELY helpful recommending vendors for a number of services, including nearby places for us to have our "Rehearsal Lunch."

Quite happy with our experience with the Kenilworth Club-- the only reason I took off a tiny bit on flexibility is that it's a historic venue so there are a few very reasonable limitations on decorating, etc. But definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a mid-size, elegant, friendly-feeling venue north of Chicago!

We discovered the Kenilworth Club after a friend of a friend got married there. Two major perks of the Kenilworth Club for us were the option to have parts of the event outside (we did both the ceremony and the cocktail hour on the lawn) and to be able to choose our own caterer (see my glowing review of the Hearty Boys). Another perk that we didn't initially consider before choosing the Kenilworth Club is that they have all the tables and place settings most people would need so you don't need to worry about renting those later on.
The inside is beautiful, a kind of refined rustic almost. The ballroom is fairly large and there's a stage for your dj/band to play on. It was newly renovated in the past few years, so the bathrooms and the rest of the club house are very nice as well. Lisa was extremely helpful, especially when it came to choosing our caterer. She was very candid about which of the club's associated caterers are more professional, more of a value, more flexible, etc so we ended up very happy with our selection (thanks Lisa!).

I cannot tell you what a visually beautiful, stress-free and enjoyable experience it was to have my daughter's reception at The Kenilworth Club in Kenilworth, Illinois. The building itself has a beautiful fireplace with candle nitches, a large dance floor, gorgeous windows and chandeliers. Perfect for photos outside and in. But the real gem was the choice of vendors and Lisa the coordinator for the club. She accommodated us in EVERY way from setting up an oxygen machine and keeping a cooler room temperature. The building is really handicap accessible and they even had a comfortable place for disabled guests to rest if needed. The suggested vendor list was perfect for any budget. The one we chose (not the most pricey), was exceptional! The appetizers kept coming! Yummy! The main course was delicious, hot and not steam table soggy at all.... everything wonderfully fresh. Even though it was buffet style after each course the tables were cleared ready for the next course. It seemed as though we had full service. We had a Fall themed wedding and it was perfectly set up when we arrived. We brought everything in boxes with instructions for each table setup and between the food vendors and the florist they understood everything and just did it! Highly recommended for a really great wedding. We had so many people saying it was the most fun they'd had at a wedding in a long time. Carla Belniak

We got married at the Kenilworth Club in August 2009, and we loved it. We really wanted an outdoor wedding, and the Kenilworth Club lawn/garden was really pretty, had plenty of room for our guests and was one of the more affordable outdoor venues in the Chicago area. We also loved the charm of the inside. Everyone could be in the same room for dinner and dancing, but the older guests who didn't necessarily want to party on the dance floor all night could go across to the other room where the bar was, sit on a couch and still watch everything that was going on. Also, the beach is only a few blocks away, and there's a cute little public park and garden which has beautiful flowers and a little fountain where we took pictures.

Lisa at the Kenilworth Club was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is laid back and helpful, and she is always there personally on the day of the wedding to make sure that everything goes ok. We didn't have a wedding planner, so we really relied on Lisa and our caterer to help us keep track of things and make decisions. I also loved that we could choose any caterer and provide our own drinks. We saved a ton of money buying our own bar drinks.

The only thing is...definitely check the train schedule! The Metra station is only half a block from the Kenilworth Club. We had checked the schedule in advance so no trains stopped at the station, but we hadn't paid attention to the express trains that don't stop at the station but do go by (and so the warning lights and sounds go on), so that was not ideal during the ceremony. The good news is that the station is really pretty and was a cool spot for pictures too.

We had our wedding at the Kenilworth Club, and it was absolutely beautiful. The hall doesn't look like much and we weren't too impressed when we first walked in, but when the manager at the time (Lisa Lauren) turned on the lights for us, we fell in love with the place. It's a historical building, with hardwood floors, and I know that it was recently reverted to its historical colors, and goodness, when the lights come on, it's got a fantastic warm, welcoming feel to it. Rustic and classy. The grounds are well maintained, with tall trees, flowers, and is perfect for pictures (also, the Metra station across the street makes for very pretty pictures too!). Everyone kept asking me how I found the place, how beautiful it was, etc.
Everyone that we worked with was very friendly, especially Nick. There were a few miscommunications, and sometimes delays on email responses, but they've recently had a change in management. The only reason I gave them a lower score was due to their flexibility; they're only open from 11am-2pm on most days, and my fiance and I were lucky enough to have odd work hours, otherwise, it definitely would have been a problem trying to coordinate meetings and such. Also, with decorations, due to the historical nature of the Kenilworth Club, you cannot use any tape, tacks, nails, glitter, rice, sand to decorate. It wasn't a problem for us, but if you want a glitter cannon at the wedding, it's something to be aware of.
We loved the Kenilworth Club, and would recommend it for those couples looking to have a rustic feeling wedding without having to travel too far outside the city.

We had our wedding at the Kenilworth Club, and it was absolutely beautiful. The hall doesn't look like much and we weren't too impressed when we first walked in, but when the manager at the time (Lisa Lauren) turned on the lights for us, we fell in love with the place. It's a historical building, with hardwood floors, and I know that it was recently reverted to its historical colors, and goodness, when the lights come on, it's got a fantastic warm, welcoming feel to it. Rustic and classy. The grounds are well maintained, with tall trees, flowers, and is perfect for pictures (also, the Metra station across the street makes for very pretty pictures too!). Everyone kept asking me how I found the place, how beautiful it was, etc.
