History of Club 86
Club 86 has humble beginnings as Legott’s Bar & Restaurant, a family restaurant in the 1900s. When son Jim returned from WWII, he added an addition to the building that would arguably become the hottest spot in the country for Jazz during the 1940s featuring greats like Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, Dizzy Gillespie, Nat King Cole, Lionel Hampton, Buddy Rich, and Tony Bennett. Into the 1960s, Club 86 transitioned from a nightclub to a party house. Today, a fourth generation of the Legott family runs the wedding and event venue.

    Fantastic Food Great Staff!

    Alex and her staff were a blessing in disguise while helping to plan my daughters wedding during Covid. Once I decided to go with Club 86 as our caterer, I had a million questions and Alex was extremely responsive, genuine and helpful with every single email I sent. She made me feel like “no worries, I got your back” while planning everything. As far as the day of, Alex and her staff went above and beyond to make sure all the guests were well taken care of. From start to finish they didn’t miss a beat. The food and the service were fantastic! Thank you for making our daughters wedding a day we won’t soon forget!

    Beyond our expectations

    I was having a horrible time during covid trying to find a venue for my son's wedding rehearsal dinner. Finally, someone mentioned The Geneva Country Club and put me in touch with Alex. I called Alex and they had an opening. The rest turned into a most memorable evening. Alex worked with me every step of the way and allowed me to add some of my own touches. After I decorated and and went to the rehearsal down the road, Alex and her staff added their own touches which left me in tears. The room looked amazing! Alex made sure we had the champagne I requested, and the food selection that she recommended was absolutely delicious. Everyone had a wonderful time and we all loved every minute of our night. A week later and I still have guests that are there raving about the country club. I would highly recommend the Geneva Country Club. They helped make wonderful memories for my family and friends.
