Hi this is Leslie Harris, and I always love checking out new or new-to-me venues, especially for music. Last year, for the first time, I attended events at the Epiphany Center for the Arts, and Theater on the Lake, both in Chicago, 115 Bourbon Street in Marionette Park, The Venue in Aurora, The Branding Iron in Bridgeview and Madcats in Palatine, among others.
Now a St Charles restaurant has made the switch to a strictly event only venue. The Eden Restaurant & Events at 1 Illinois St. is now known as Eden Events.
For now, it looks like they are focusing on private events like weddings and showers, but the owners are promising live music events from different genres like blues, jazz and contemporary music.
I’ll be curious to see who turns up at Eden Events.
Have you been to any new-to-you venues that you think other River listeners should check out? Let me know in the Facebook comments.
