Weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and milestone events are our business! At Riviera Country Club, we bring the services, food, venue, and special something that help us stand out in the Northwest Indiana and Chicagoland region. Our reception halls can accommodate up to 320 guests, and our on-site parking has plenty of spaces for everyone. Couples can choose to have their wedding ceremony right here on our grounds as well. We have garden gazebos that are positioned along a large lake, which offers an exceptional environment for exchanging vows. Brides can utilize her own private bridal room before making a grand entrance at the reception.
Stepping into our venue, you will see how our cathedral ceilings and chandeliers create the perfect ambiance for your celebration. Our tables are strategically placed to allow movement of you and your guests to mingle and enjoy each other’s company. Our spacious dance floor will beckon to all of your guests to get down and have fun. Decor includes lighted tuelling and skirted and raised tables. Glass vases with silk roses can top your tables, and table runners will complement your wedding colors. Chairs are decorated with white satin and bows and up-lighting shimmers in a color that you select behind your head table.
Your room is yours for 5½ hours with a four-hour open bar with premium liquor. Our staff continues to pour cocktail service for the bridal and immediate family tables during dinner, and there is table wine offered throughout dinner. We provide champagne and hot hors d’oeuvres at no cost during your first cocktail hour. Bites include teriyaki steak, fried mushrooms, BBQ ribs, and sweet and sour pork.
Our menu selection is full of options and opportunities to make your special meal all your own. Our staff members will serve your meal your way – either plated or family-style. We bring together a tasty selection of entrees that range from traditional fare, such as mostaccioli and Polish sausage, to vegetarian options. Our combo plates unite two great entrees, including New York strip steak and grilled chicken or broiled orange roughy and filet mignon.
Beside your entrees, we offer salads, rolls and a selection of homemade soups, potatoes or vegetables. Rice pilaf, whipped potatoes, buttered corn or a vegetable medley are just some of the sides to select. We will cut your cake and serve with vanilla ice cream. Late-night munchies can be satiated with the addition of a slider bar, taco/nacho bar, hot dog bar or even tomato soup and grilled cheese.
