How it breaks down:

Facility Rental Fee: The Club at Hillbrook does not have a facility rental fee, as it is all based on Food and Beverage minimums. They offer several packages ranging from $125 to $185/pp, which include hors d’oeuvres, salad, at least 2 entrees and dessert. These prices also include tax and gratuity.

The Report: 

 Located in Russell Township, the Club at Hillbrook is a private members club. Originally built by Edmund S. Burke, Jr. (former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and founder of the firms that later became Bethlehem Steel) circa 1919, the once 40-room Tudor Style mansion was designed after a home Burke visited in Ashford, Kent, England, which was originally built in 1472.  After Burke sold Hillbrook to Paul R. Johnston in 1946 it was later converted into a club in 1952.

Woman Getting Married Says:

If you had an uncle who had an amazingly quaint mansion (yes, they can be quaint) and a lush garden in England, but he somehow relocated it to Cleveland for your wedding…this would be it! While some of the reception areas would look gorgeous with an update, the real winner here is their gorgeous outside area and exterior of the Club, which has a rustic yet elegant vintage feel. While there were some negative reviews for their previous wedding planner, the new one gets rave reviews. Being able to BYOB is fantastic, and the membership fee is reasonable considering there is no rental fee (aside from the ceremony charge). It’s definitely worth checking out.
