The Matrix Club
A massive multicultural convention, banquet and performing arts center will be opening later this year in the suburb of Naperville, Illinois. The Matrix Club has 75,000 sq. ft. of space, including amenities like a restaurant, art gallery, yoga studio and music sound lab.
The concert venue is a highlight of the space. With a state-of-the-art AV system, lights, oversized screens and dance floors that hold up to 2,000 guests, the space is a meeting planner’s playground. Dhrishti Center for Performing Arts is a 210-seat cultural arts venue with varied facilities. The art gallery is attached and can be transformed to create a custom “sales atmosphere.”
Banquet-style catering is handled within the venue by Chef Devinder Utpaul from a full-service kitchen. He serves cuisine from around the world based on his experience at luxury resorts and catering businesses. The Matrix Room, the complex’s main restaurant, seeks to create a unique dining experience with colorful designs, international cuisine and live performances from the music stage. It can also host private events with free parking for attendees.
Though located in a suburban area, there is plenty to do in Naperville. Event attendees can stay in Homewood Suites by Hilton Aurora Naperville, a casual hotel with just under 150 suites. Near The Matrix Room, Fox Valley Mall is a uniquely decorated shopping mall full of plants and two-story sculptures. It hosts two comedy clubs—The Comedy Shrine and The Bit Theater, each featuring local stand-up and improv performances with light drinks and snacks. The young at heart can visit Round1 Bowling & Amusement for arcade games, karaoke, billiards, darts and bowling.
