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.

All around, fabulous venue
We held our reception at Geneva Country Club in Geneva. The views for this venue are THE BEST on Seneca Lake. The reception food was great (we received many compliments) and it was served promptly and hot. The coordinators (Alex and Sarah) went above and beyond with assisting in decor and making sure every detail ran smoothly! They politely kept us informed throughout the night and took care of all the decor after we left. I would 100% recommend this venue and staff!Sent on 11/14/2019

Perfect wedding venue!
My wife and I happened to find this place on wedding wire and after we visited we already knew it was where we were going to get married. This family business has been around for decades and they were excellent to deal with. The staff were great and accommodating, Alex was fantastic to work with, and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place any time someone asks!Sent on 07/11/2020
