Whether you are planning a company holiday party or bringing together your friends and family to enjoy the best of the season, it can be hard to get the full attention of guests during this busy time of year. But premier Chicago holiday party venues like Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Clubhouse remove all the stress and chaos of the season—leaving only joy and good cheer.
Take a look at the key features that attract and engage guests at Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Clubhouse.
Features of Captivating Chicago Holiday Party Venues
Convenient and Enchanting Location
First, you have to get all those RSVPs back and make sure guests actually show up. For company holiday parties, this can be more of a challenge. And because people are so busy during the holiday season, it is easy for them to find an excuse. But the convenient location of Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Clubhouse puts a damper on any plan to flake out. In fact, guests will really look forward to your holiday party at this serene space in the West Suburbs—right by the Oak Brook Golf Course.
Relaxing Holiday Party Atmosphere
Nature has the power to help people de-stress and unwind—allowing them to fully immerse themselves in the experience. So we love Chicago holiday party venues with floor-to-ceiling windows that cast your eye on natural beauty like the 20 acres of lush forests and serene lake. The enchanting fountain is the perfect touch to the peaceful Clubhouse setting.
Of course, nature and its elements can also be a bit intimidating during winter. That is why we look for features like a stone double-sided fireplace that help guests relax inside country lodge-style venues like the Oak Brook Room. The elegant décor can easily transform to match any holiday party theme, but we love the idea of a white Christmas holiday party in this tranquil setting.
Festive Cocktail Hour Space
The Oak Brook Bath & Tennis Clubhouse floor plan provides you with plenty of options for your cocktail hour. There are two bars conveniently located near the 900-square-foot pre-function room, the covered veranda and the clubhouse. And of course, there is also the patio with lake views and plenty of space for guests to mix and mingle. What better place for guests to relax while enjoying a signature cocktail and passed hors d’oeuvres?
We suggest a variety of comfort foods as well as innovated holiday hors d’oeuvres. Some of our favorites are:
- Goat cheese and grape truffles
- Pecan crusted chicken tenders
- Sriracha chicken meatballs
- Stuffed peppadew peppers
Holiday party entertainment idea: Coloring books are fun for more than just kids, and they are trending at events of all kinds. So set out colorful crayons and festive coloring books filled with holiday figures.
Bigger is not always better during the holiday season, and this applies to guest counts. If you will keep your invitations to around 200, then it will be easier to foster an intimate atmosphere inside a premier Chicago holiday party venue. In the Clubhouse, up to 200 guests can enjoy a seated dinner under a 35-foot vaulted ceiling. Natural wood features as well as lake and forest views create a warm atmosphere.
Tip: Look for a gleaming wooden dance floor. Not only will guests want to dance the night away, but you will also capture stunning pictures of them doing so.
A Diverse Holiday Party Menu
As guests take a seat at dinner tables, unique centerpieces and a satisfying holiday party dinner menu will bring them together. We recommend designing a custom menu that has a wide variety of food so everyone finds something they love. The most popular entrees you will find on our 2016 holiday party menu that are perfect for holiday parties at elegant spaces include:
- Roasted pork loin
- Sautéed chicken breast
- Stuffed shells
- Smoked pit ham
And, of course, it is critical that your holiday party venue works with a very professional and experienced catering company so guests enjoy flawless service.
When caterers with decades of experiences service favorite Chicago holiday party venues, guests enjoy a stress-free and inclusive experience.
