The Perfect Venue for those Baseball Couple Fans that want everything!
I will start by apologizing for the delayed review. This is long overdue! In September of 2018, my husband and I had our wedding at the Brickhouse Tavern. This was not our original plan, we wanted something casual but not too casual, something that was unique but would work with what we were looking for. I met with the Catering Manager at the time, and she was wonderful Their flexibility with what we wanted to achieve put them over the top and we decided this is where it was happening! We planned this entire 150 person wedding in 6 months thanks to their efficiency. Dani Levulis was our Catering manager along with JT the Restaurant Manager were wonderful! They listened to what we wanted. Was able to make this a private event (we rented the entire 2nd floor and outdoor patio) - I was most concerned about having "bar food" for my wedding dinner. She immediately assured my of their partnership with the Four Corners restaurant group and I could basically "pick my menu". That was all I needed to hear. We decided on food stations, and they did an AMAZING job of executing our requests. BBQ Brisket Station, Taco Station, Shrimp cocktail, pasta and more fun foods. We did a Donut wall for dessert, brought in my own candy station that they helped set up. We also had their awesome options from their menu (pizza, sliders) for our late night food buffet. We are in our 40's so many of our guests have been to their share of weddings. I cannot tell you how many compliments we received on the food, bar, bartenders, staff, ambiance and overall unique venue. They worked with me on every request. I stayed across the street at the Zachery hotel the night before and when I woke up, looked across the street, I saw them cleaning and scrubbing the outside patio for our day. That level of commitment just got better throughout our day. We had our ceremony at sunset on the outdoor patio with Wrigley as our backdrop (next best thing to getting married on Wrigley grounds) They ordered the beautiful white chairs for my ceremony, They did a "turnaround" as I requested in such an efficient manner to change my ceremony look to an outside causal lounge atmosphere for my reception. I had blue uplighting ordered to add to the atmosphere and they helped that get set up. I use to work as a catering manager in a downtown private club, and the service I received from the Brickhouse for our wedding exceeded any expectation I had. I also would be remiss if I did not mention Jason. He is the bar manager and the day of and everytime we have been in there since, he always remembers us and treats us like family! I would not hesitate for a second to consider this venue for your special day or any special event! Tell them the Elk's sent you :)
