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 third generation of the Legott family runs the wedding and event venue.

We recently had our wedding on New Year's Eve at Club 86 and I couldn't have been happier with the value we got for our money and the courtesy and flexibility of working everyone there. They truly helped make the day amazing! The guests couldn't say enough good things and everyone had a great time! I would absolutely recommend Club 86!Sent on 03/05/2017

Amazing, amazing, amazing!
I truly cannot put into words what the staff at Club 86 has done for us. Right from the very beginning with Bill, through the planning and communication with Alex, and the physical details with Terry. They are simply THE BEST to work with and their staff are amazing and all so HARD WORKING. Our wedding was the best night of our lives and it truly could not have been that way without them. The food was also amazing as always! Just when I started to think there were still details left unsaid- Alex sent me an very detailed email about EVERYTHING that we spoke about over the last 5 months letting me know that we pretty much covered everything and Terry swept right in with everything making it look like I knew exactly what I was doing all night. They truly have event planning and hosting DOWN TO A "T". I will always, always, always be thankful for them and will never miss the opportunity to recommend them for the rest of my life. I honestly felt like they were my family by the end of the whole process. Love them all very much!Sent on 08/28/2019
