The Matrix Room, an eclectic and globally-inspired new dining experience, has officially arrived! Located inside The Matrix Club, the highly anticipated multi-cultural convention, banquet and performing arts venue, The Matrix Room is now open for dinner Sunday – Saturday evenings.
Whether you are celebrating a special occasion or just enjoying a night out, The Matrix Room provides impressively creative menus, a world-class bar, and stimulating ambiance for a memorable dining and drinking experience. The Matrix Room features an international live music lounge and fusion bar along with a culturally diverse menu, created by Executive Chef Alonso Beckford.
Originally from Jamaica, Chef Alonso Beckford emigrated to the United States and settled in New York, bringing with him the flavors of his family’s Caribbean roots. Throughout his career, Chef Alonso has gained vast and varied experience in the kitchen. Chef Alonso’s love for art, multiculturalism, education in food nutrition and simply bringing people together over a thoughtful meal made him an ideal fit for The Matrix Room. He is thrilled to bring his take on contemporary global cuisine to the people of Naperville and the surrounding areas!

Connected to The Matrix Room restaurant is Meg’s Lounge, a beautiful bar space dedicated to the memory and vivacious spirit of Meghna Kulkarni, the daughter of the founders Madan and Shebani Kulkarni who passed away suddenly in February 2022. After the passing of their only child, the Kulkarnis established a charity in her name. Mission Meghna works to fundraise and support local & international organizations that assist underserved children, girls and women around the globe. An extra special signature cocktail – available only at Meg’s Lounge – will support Mission Meghna, as a portion of proceeds will directly benefit the charity.
