The Club will offer discounted parking vouchers (available at the front desk) for guests in the Lakeside Garage across the street from Monroe Station. Enter on Columbus Drive between Monroe and Randolph streets.

Can I invite my crew and other guests?

Absolutely. But please, no children under 12. We encourage you to make reservations as soon as possible as space will be limited. 

Will there be a sit-down dinner?

While there will be tables, the evening is more of an open house. Food will be served in a station buffet with ample beverages of your choice.
