Planning your wedding weekend comes with many tasks and todos.  At Tortoise Supper Club, our goal is for you to just enjoy the party and leave the details to us.

The perfect kickoff to our chicago wedding

We have been to Tortoise Club many, many times and absolutely loved our experiences so it was a no brainer to host our rehearsal dinner in their beautiful space. We couldn’t of been happier with the planning process and execution of the event. Kelli is an absolute dream to work with and made planning a breeze. She was helpful and responsive at all times. Our guests were floored by the food, the staff, and the live jazz! It was the perfect kick off to our Chicago wedding weekend and I wish we could go back and do it again. I wouldn’t change a thing if we could because Tortoise Club was nothing short of perfect. Cannot stress enough how you should host your event here!

We arranged from long distance

We hosted our son and daughter in law’s wedding rehearsal dinner at the Tortoise Supper Club. We arranged it long distance and Kelli was wonderful to work with. The canapes were among the most delicious I have had. The service was beyond amazing! I highly recommend the Tortoise Supper Club as a place to enjoy a special event.
