"We can't wait to introduce our beautiful new space," states Kyle DeSantis, President of Drury Lane. The facility on 100 Drury Lane in Oakbrook Terrace is undergoing an extensive renovation with Phase 1 to be completed by March, 2013 and Phase 2 to be completed by mid-2014.
Phase 1 includes the renovation of the 27,000 square foot grand ballroom, the main lobby and cocktail lounge—featuring classic sophistication and chic modern with European influences in the furnishings and original artwork.
Designer Shannon Leoni created a neutral color palette for each space. The soft blue and cream walls in the grand ballroom complement the custom Stark paisley carpeting, which is based on a design found in a palace in St. Petersburg. New furnishings include brushed bronze upholstered chairs.
The new main lobby has tones of chocolate brown, cream, coral and pale blue that enhance the four 12-foot Swarovski crystal chandeliers, crown molding and marble accents. The space includes new custom-weaved Stark Carpeting.
Phase 2 will include the renovation of the Courtyard Restaurant, French Room, English Room, and the Theatre Bar.
Silver-leafed Chinoiserie wallpaper, Louis XVI-inspired dining chairs, a cream-colored coffered ceiling, new wall sconces and four new crystal chandeliers are highlights of The French Room renovation. The English Room will sport a club atmosphere with lacquered navy blue walls while the Theatre Bar will blend brown hues with marble and crystal accents.
“For almost 30 years, we've had the honor of hosting thousands of celebrations and special events and our guests have become part of the Drury Lane family," adds DeSantis. "We are thrilled to continue this tradition with a new generation of guests."
