NAPERVILLE -- The team behind The Matrix Club, a convention, banquet and performance venue in Naperville, said it plans to open in April at 808 S. Route 59.
Plans to revitalize the shuttered Sam's Club call for creating a 1,200-seat banquet hall; The Matrix Room, a 220-seat international fusion restaurant, bar, and music lounge; the Dhrishti Center of Performing Arts that seats 200; yoga and dance studios; the Dhrishti Art Gallery; the Matrix Sound Lab, a recording studio; and a sports complex. The development proposal was submitted to the city and revealed in March.
"We offer an international hub to an area that is already multicultural, a place to support global arts, to celebrate diverse cultures within the community, and to collaborate with artists of all types," said Cherryl Marcey, The Matrix Club's director of sales and events. "We cannot wait to be an integral part of Naperville's event and entertainment venues."
Creating the menus will be Michelin-rated chef Yanni Sanchez, who applies her culinary expertise and training from France, Mexico, North America and South Asia.
"I am eager to get started and be part of a new concept with all the challenges and rewards that come with a global venue," she said.
