About the Kenilworth Club
The Kenilworth Club is an historic treasure located in the heart of Chicago's North Shore. This recently renovated landmark is a premier site for weddings and special events. With its vaulted ceiling and distinctive art glass windows, the Kenilworth Club looks like the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, but this architectural gem was designed in 1906 by a Wright contemporary, George W. Maher.
The building has long been regarded as a masterpiece - perhaps the masterpiece - of George W. Maher's mature prairie style. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, the club stands as the prominent centerpiece of Kenilworth. The venue is a stone's throw from Kenilworth's striking train station (designed by Frank Burnham) and the ride from downtown Chicago is less than a half hour.
The Kenilworth Club unique wedding venue atmosphere is friendly rather than grand, intimate rather than imposing. Exquisitely landscaped grounds provide the perfect location for a romantic outdoor wedding celebration or a sizable cocktail reception. Note: It is not necessary to be a member of the Kenilworth Club to rent the facility.
