Best Chicago Area Banquet Facilities

Chicago Area wedding locations - Joliet

The Jacob Henry Mansion is beautiful - the living room is a dance floor.

Over the years, the banquet industry has really changed. As wedding DJs we thought you might like to hear about some of the best places we’ve worked in. Here is the criteria we used to make this list.

1. Staff was friendly and easy to work with.

2. Overall beauty and elegance

3. Food quality and menu choices

4. Uniqueness and charm

Jacob Henry Mansion Joliet, Il . A beautiful place for a weddingbecause it is a step back to victorian times, the Jacob Henry Mansion is a historical place that is magical becuase of it’s old-world charm.

The atrium Room is one of the most beautiful of all the area.

William Tell Banquets, Atrium Room or Terrace Room,  Countryside, Il -To book the Atrium room is difficult because it is booked ahead so many Saturdays, but if you can find an open date, book your church second after this gem! With a romantic balcony over a lower level of seating it is unusually different than any other banquet facility. If the atrium is booked, the smaller Terrace Room is just as gorgeous! We have been lucky enough to DJ for many weddings here and hope to be back again and again! The food here is outstanding. The best thing is this is part of a beautiful hotel with the best Sunday  Champagne Brunch for the morning after your wedding complete with  beautifully played grand piano  music. For your rehearsal dinner there is a Friday buffet with Prime Rib that is mouth watering. It even has a beautiful Gazebo for you to have your wedding ceremony right there! The William Tell Banquet Facility has it all because it is a part of the Countyside Holiday Inn Hotel & Conference Center. It includes a huge swimming pool and all the amenities you would expect at a fine hotel.

A Midieval Castle in the West suburbs (slightly south)

Royalty West Banquets, Willow Springs, Il Step into a magic land with a castle straight out of a fairie tale. This facility has home-made Polish Cooking to die for. All made with real butter, it tastes so good it’s hard not to gorge yourself! The romantic grounds are the most beautiful of anywhere and the best part is that they are reasonably priced. Try to get the Castle Room which is by far the most ambience. It is so beautiful, this wedding DJ picked it for her very own wedding! The food was so good and still is, that every time I work there that it is hard not to overeat! This is a personal experience, run by a family NOT a big corporation. The experience is unlike any other. I often recommend it to my clients because of the friendliness of the family running it, the ambience and the food – a triple delight!


South Chicago Area Wedding Reception Locations
A Newer facility, the most ambience for the area.

DiNolfo’s Banquets Homer Glen, Il  This is a newre facility and is filled with beauty.

Because this is a family run venue , you can trust that everything is personal and your event will be extremely wonderful. I have thoroughly enjoyed the lavishness of this place from the moment you drive up to the beautiful spaciousness of the rooms. It is well worth a look if you are in the south suburbs. There is even a small room upstairs laid out like a chapel for ceremonies. And DiNolfo’s still has the VERY BEST Roast Beef on their banquet menu of anywhere! Take it from a DJ who has been around!


The stonegate is a wonderful north suburb location for elegance and beauty.

Big and beautiful, with the ability for outdoor cocktails


The Stonegate, Hoffman Estates, Il The Stonegate is one of the most awesome, modern, elegant venues I have had the pleasure to work in. It has a beautiful outdoor terrace next to the foyer bar area, where the guests enjoyed cocktails and I was singing jazz. We were able to put the speaker outside so everyone could hear even though I was indoors singing. After cocktails we went into a grand ballroom and had one of the greatest meals I’ve ever enjoyed. I highly recommend this wonderful romantic spot if you’re in the north suburbs. Beaty in a modern setting with all the amenities for a perfect evening!
