We really enjoyed using the kenilworth club for our wedding. The space is beautiful. We took advantage of the grand piano and the fire place for our winter wedding.

We could not have been happier with the whole experience at Kenilworth. Each and every person we worked with was helpful and made everything easy for us. All of our guests were also raving about the space. I would highly recommend!

Beautiful and unique space with charm and warmth! Amazingly high ceilings, beautiful outdoor area, separate cocktail room with fireplace. The venue hosts only one event at a time so you get the entire club to yourself! Great staff - easy to work with! I highly recommend checking this place out for your wedding or any special event!

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 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.

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!

Lisa Lauren was delightful to work with. She was very accommodating when we brought our band leader to see the the space and she referred an excellent caterer and wedding coordinator. The dining room/dance floor and stage/lighting were excellent and the separate reception area with wood-burning fireplace and bar made it an ideal space.

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
