Weddings at The Wild Onion Brewery & Banquets


The Great Hall at The Wild Onion Brewery & Banquets is one of Chicagoland’s finest wedding venues. This unique space is anchored by a large timber frame cathedral ceiling that overlooks a beautiful 11-acre lake. Our private lake is surrounded by wildflowers and a cascading waterfall which flows outside the room and past a cantilevered patio. You and your guests can enjoy a champagne toast with the sweet sound of flowing water. We take great pride in making your wedding a standout celebration.

As a family-owned business from Barrington, we recognized the need for a beautiful and unique space for people to meet and celebrate their special day. The Great Hall at The Wild Onion Brewery & Banquets was built with a clear vision of unparalleled beauty that would invoke a sense of architectural awe and serenity. From the vaulted cathedral ceiling to the hand-carved chandeliers and woodwork, we created a space that is truly one-of-a-kind. We believe a wedding venue should be as unique as your special occasion. We are proud to share this magical space with our guests who fill it with love, laughter, and memories.

Our attention to detail is unsurpassed and we strive to make every moment memorable. From our breathtaking ambiance to our dedicated staff and hospitality, we make dream weddings become a reality. We invite you to visit our Great Hall to experience its beauty first hand.


What Couples are Saying:

“This venue and the staff are all AMAZING! I highly recommend getting married here. My husband and I had the best experience and it all started with the wedding coordinator, Jamie. She is easy to reach, answered all of our questions, and was so easy to work with in the process. Her recommendations were much appreciated to give our guests the best experience. We booked a year out and wanted our ceremony right before our reception. The food is outstanding and the ambiance of the twinkle lights and how the venue is decorated for Christmas made our decision easy to book it for our wedding on December 15th. Our wedding photos were outstanding due to the decorations the venue does. Our guests kept raving about how beautiful it was! The staff set up all of our items we brought for our wedding (place cards, guest book, etc.) and my florist was able to get in as early as 9:30 to come do his part. I was amazed at how beautiful it looked when everything came together. My mouth dropped open as I walked in to see every detail done that I wanted. We offered our guests 3 choices of food for dinner (chicken, pasta, and salmon) and they loved what they chose! They also loved the cake that the venue supplies from a nearby bakery. Very pleased with the design of it as well! They listened to exactly what I wanted. We also went with the craft beer package to give our guests the full experience of being at a brewery. I’d highly recommend this as well since it’s fun to pick from so many great brews! The staff was professional, listened to our needs, and was so accommodating. Jamie talked us through the entire planning process making it go seamless (she even helped calm my nerves as I was about to walk down the aisle)! I cannot say enough great things about this venue. Great food, drinks, beautiful venue, not pricey, and it offered my guests a fun time!” – Julie S


“We held both our ceremony and reception at The Great Hall at The Onion Pub. Everything from the staff, to the venue space, to the food was just perfect. Jamie is such a sweetheart and we loved working with her. Her knowledge and passion for helping people is just contagious and really helped us feel confident that all would go smoothly – and it did! The staff did an amazing job of flipping the ceremony space into the reception space during cocktail hour and the bartenders were so fun and friendly! The atmosphere at The Great Hall is somewhat magical. From the wall of windows and brick walls, to the wood beams and soft lighting, the room was warm, welcoming and romantic. Every aspect of having our wedding at The Onion Pub was just perfect. The room, the food and the staff are beyond comparable. We loved everything about this venue and can’t brag enough about it!” – Taylor V
