About Us

Highland Park Country Club, one of Chicago's original and historic event venues, is being reimagined as the newest piece of the Catering by Michaels portfolio. A mere 45-minute drive from Chicago, the venue is nestled on a nature preserve, providing an idyllic backdrop for your wedding. In addition, guests from a number of Windy City suburbs can easily access the site. Celebrate your love and commitment to your partner with an event that reflects the two of you for a wedding to remember.

Facilities and Capacity

The Highland Park Country Club offers both indoor and outdoor locations, and checks all the boxes for your wedding and other events featuring a stunning backdrop of a 100 acre nature preserve and floor to ceiling windows. Traditional seated meals of up to 350 guests with a large dance floor or up to 400 guests with no dance floor can fit in the space. The Highland Park Country Club can be converted into many configurations, so the private event venue is also a perfect space for smaller events and weddings, engagement parties, and showers.
