A: The rental includes complete set-up and tear down of tables and chairs, along with a bartending and staff to serve your guests from the Banquet Room's dedicated bar and bus-people for continuity of service after the caterers have completed their services.
Q: I have a DVD or Video I would like to play during my event. Can I do this?
A: Yes, we have a large projection screen, as well as, a wall-mounted flat screen television in our Banquet Room that can accommodate audio/video hookups for VCRs, DVD players, or computers. Please bring all of the appropriate cording with you to hook your component to our flat screen.
Q: Does the Venetian Club have wi-fi available?
A: Yes, if you are in need of internet service during your event please request The Venetian Club's public wi-fi key from our staff members.
Q: My event will not be using a DJ's services for music. Can I play some background music during my event?
A: Yes, we have the ability to put your music selections on a overhead system in our Banquet Room. Our system accommodates a hook up into your iPod should you have a specific play list of songs you have put together. Another option we can offer is a commercial-free internet radio service that can be played in the banquet room during your event. Please keep in mind that our staff will not be able to accommodate requests for individual songs to be played during your event, as that service would be best provided by a DJ.
Q: Do I have to use a caterer? Why can't I just bring in my own food for the celebration?
A: In order to preserve the quality of service that the Venetian Club is known for providing, and to comply with Illinois Department of Health regulations for our club; all food served must be prepared in a professional certified kitchen and caterers MUST provide staff on site to ensure proper handling. The preferred caterers we have relationships with meet both health regulations, as well as, the Venetian Club's standard of quality service.
Q: Your calendar lists every Friday as unavailable and I would like to hold my event on a Friday night, is this possible?
A: The Venetian Club proudly hosts the "Best Friday Night Fish Fry in Town" every Friday Night. Because of this, our Banquet Hall is unavailable most Fridays. In the rare instance that we are not hosting a Fish Fry on Friday Night, the Banquet Room will be listed as available for rental on our Events Calendar.
