Our wedding at Pinstripes Oak Brook was nothing short of amazing. Sarah and Molly were both there with us every step of the way, and they were very accommodating of last minute changes and additions. The staff was professional and always on top of things and was always willing to make sure that they were doing everything possible to make our night memorable. Our guests loved being able to play bocce and bowl throughout the night, and the pictures we got are original and fun. If I could, I would get married at Pinstripes all over again. (P.S.--Do yourselves a favor and add the gelato bar--it was totally worth it!)

We had a fabulous wedding at Pinstripes in April, and it’s very much thanks to Sarah Bessler and her team. At the beginning of our planning process, we actually met with and booked the venue with someone else, and we were so grateful when Sarah took over. She was extremely communicative and did everything she could to make the wedding day run as smoothly as possible. She made sure we had exactly the food and drinks we wanted, including special accommodations for several of our family members with food allergies, as well as bowling and bocce lanes for our guests to enjoy. She also arranged to let us in on Friday to set up the space ahead of time so we didn’t have to worry about asking someone to take care of that the day of the wedding. In terms of the venue itself, Pinstripes in Oakbrook is a beautiful place to have any sort of party! The ballroom is contemporary with lots of exposed beams and big windows. There’s also a space off the ballroom that’s enclosed in glass with several bocce lanes, and a full patio with a firepit. Our guests were able to enjoy all these areas, and no one ever felt like they were leaving the party if they left the ballroom, because the spaces blend seamlessly together. The food - served family style - is out of this world! Several of our guests, including two professional chefs, told us it was some of the best food they’d ever had at a reception. At the end of the night, we rented out the bowling lanes upstairs, and when we weren’t quite finished with our games, the manager comped an extra half hour of time so we didn’t have to cut the fun short. We had a wonderful time at Pinstripes. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique venue, and we can’t wait to celebrate our anniversaries there!

My son and his wife were married in a traditional Korean wedding ceremony in Korea in April and now we're coming to the states for an informal reception for his relatives. Pinstripes was the perfect venue which allowed all the guests to mingle among each other by playing bocce ball, bowling and bags. We were able to transform our casual dining area into a semi formal setting which was complemented by many because of the feeling of the outdoor atmosphere. Our venue planner Sarah worked well with us which was hard at times because of the bride and groom living in Korea. She listened well to the look we we trying to achieve and offered many ideas and suggestions. On the day of the event Tommy and Hector were very attentive to all the guests needs and addressed every concern we brought to them. The wait staff displayed exceptional service and was complimented by many of the guests. We would definitely use Pinstripes as our venue again!

Absolutely loved our venue. All of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been too. People who do not enjoy dancing didn't feel obligated to dance since there was bowling, bocce ball, and a fire pit. The food was absolutely delicious. Betty was pleasure to work with throughout the whole process and Jason was on top of everything the day of the ceremony and reception!

Pinstripes was probably the best part of our wedding day. We worked with Betty and she was incredibly sweet and did an amazing job as our coordinator. We heard rave reviews from our guests the entire reception about the food, dessert (the cheesecake is phenomenal!!!), the activities, just everything. Our guests even thought the staff dressed in purple shirts to match our color scheme! So many of them have told us that it was the best or one of the best wedding receptions they have ever been to and we absolutely agree! Scott was the head server and was super attentive to us. He checked on us consistently and made sure we had fresh entrees after we visited each of the guest tables and also boxed up the leftovers for us to take home. At the end of the night, I discovered that one of my earrings was missing and Scott had the servers looking for it right away and brought it over to me within minutes. I was so thankful as it was one of my mother's pearls. We could not have been happier with our choice of Pinstripes as our venue!!

Many of our guests told us that ours was the best wedding they had ever been to and we know it was in large part because of Pinstripes! Having a cocktail hour that included great food, bowling, and bocce allowed our guests, who were from many different backgrounds and 2 cultures, come together in a non-intimidating way and become family. We had to drag them into the dinner, they were having so much fun! The food was excellent and the wine and beer selection was ample. We were planning our wedding from afar (NY) so Pinstripes was the perfect fit for us because it included a site for the ceremony, reception, and fun. The biggest bonus, as a bride, was the in-house wedding coordinator. We worked with Kate and she made the whole experience seamless. She made sure we had all the details covered, connected with our other vendors, and made sure everything ran on time and smoothly on the big day itself. Her staff even ran out to do last minute errands when some of our supplies had shipped broken! I would highly recommend Pinstripes for anyone who wants a fun, unique venue that is low maintenance, high quality and affordable.

Angie, You are wonderful. We had the best wedding at Pinstripes. The food was amazing, the servers were great. Everyone loved the huge dance floor. The bartenders were so fast and nice, we kept getting compliments all night. Loved the boccie ball and bowling. It was so fun for pictures. We loved our officiant from Walton Weddings. Jeannie was great. Thanks also for the help with learning about our different florists in the area. It worked out great. We loved our ceremony it was so cool having it outside. The chairs were amazing, everyone commented on how beautiful the area was. We still get compliments on how great the food was! It was a blast. You all were fantastic!

Pinstripes was the most amazing venue we could have ever asked for. Honestly, how do more people not realize this?! I set out looking for a venue that offered something different. I had been to too many banquet hall/golf course weddings that all basically looked the same. I wanted to set my wedding apart from the rest. Then, I found Pinstripes and all my prayers were answered. Kate, our wedding coordinator from Pinstripes, was absolutely AMAZING. We could not have made it through the planning process without her, first and foremost. She was always extremely timely, professional, and courteous throughout our planning process. She stayed late to accommodate us and answer questions on numerous occasions. When we didn't see her in person, I felt like I was emailing her crazy questions every other day, but she was always prepared and happy to answer anything. She was just wonderful and an absolute delight to work with! The day of my wedding, Pinstripes blew me away. From start to finish, our experience at Pinstripes Oak Brook was flawless, thanks largely to Kate and the incredible staff! My guests absolutely LOVED the bocce and bowling we had during cocktail hour. I got countless compliments on the food (hello, Pinstripes is the BEST!) The room was beautiful, the patio was a complete home run, and the fire pit was the cherry on top of an outstanding reception. I cannot speak highly enough of this venue. 100% the best decision we made in the entire wedding planning process. BEST WEDDING EVER thanks to Pinstripes!

We cannot say more about this location. It is so unique and entertaining! And the price is very reasonable! We had our cocktail hour downstairs and had the whole outdoor patio including bocce courts. Reception was upstairs, which also included entire patio and bocce courts. Our guests raved about the venue, as well as the food! They're food is absolutely amazing - family style. From appetizers to desserts you will not be disappointed! Either set up for our 100 person wedding was great. Kate was our coordinator which pinstripes provided and we could not not have been happier with her! Every detail was perfect! Such a great time and I wish we could do it all again! Highly highly recommend this venue for a unique and fun time!

“This is one of the best weddings, if not the best I have ever been to and I have been to a lot of weddings.” That is what one of my guests said after our wedding at Pinstripes in Oak Brook. Picking this venue was the absolute BEST decision I could have made. It exceeded my expectations! Laura and her crew provided the ultimate experience for us and our guests. Every detail from the decor to the sequence of events was exactly as we requested. Laura really took her time with us and answered all calls, e-mails and requests (and we had a lot) promptly. She makes the occasion all about you and truly understands just how important it is to the client. She is simply amazing! In addition, the food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure everyone is taken care of. Our guests are raving about what a great time they had---from the cocktail hour to the bowling. When you have guests going to the expense of traveling to a wedding, you want to provide the best experience and Pinstripes delivered. We also appreciated that we could leave with our guests and pick up all the "remnants of the reception" the day after. If you are seeking a venue that is unique but very classy, that will work with your time schedule, ideas and special requests--plus provide a stress-free experience---then choose Pinstripes! I could not have imagined a better way to start a new life with my husband.

This review is for the Pinstripes in Northbrook. They. Were. Amazing. I could literally not be happier with how things went. We were working with Robyn for part of the planning and Angie towards the end. First of all, they were so great in that we had no need to worry about a day-of coordinator. Angie and her staff took care of everything! The set-up looked exactly like I wanted it to. Second, the food was AWESOME. It was so good. Plus, with the family style menu, you are allowed to order additional portions of anything you really liked, so everyone ate a ton. They also gave extra portions to me and my husband so that we could eat really quickly during the reception. Third, it was just such a fun venue, which was exactly what we were looking for--between the bocce, bowling, and fire pit, there was something for everyone throughout the entire night. They also did a lot of great little extra things. For example, it was a super cold day (55 degrees in July!), but when we got there, they had set up heat lamps and had put out a bunch of blankets for our guests. I was so happy with the extra little touches that we didn't have to ask for! The waitstaff was great at making sure that everyone had a drink when they needed one. The only teeny tiny issue we had was just that they set our head table up way too close to the wall, so we had to ask the wait staff to come move it out about 2 feet so we could even get in or out. They took a few minutes to come and finally showed up when my (pregnant) matron of honor and I tried to move them ourselves so I could get out for the father-daughter dance. Still, it was such a tiny thing, and everything else was absolutely perfect. I highly recommend Pinstripes in Northbrook for a wedding. I wish we could do ours again!
