Essex Club

100 Pennslyvania Avenue
Brentwood, NY 11717Directions


With resplendent garden views, a picturesque gazebo and a magnificent ballroom, Essex Club sets the scene for an extraordinary wedding. Set amidst 50-acres of rolling greens and perennial gardens, the quaint country club can be customized to the setting of your dreams. Each window of the ballroom looks out onto the verdant landscape of the 18-hole golf course, a backdrop to enhance any occasion. Wedding ceremonies may be held at either the garden gazebo or the ballroom fireplace, both providing beautiful photo opportunities to capture the moment you say “I do.” We only host one event at a time, so you’ll be sure to receive individualized attention and privacy on your special day.

BOLI Love!

My fiancé and I booked our wedding at Essex Club yesterday and we just wanted to show them some love! Jessica was an absolute pleasure to work with; she was very helpful and patient with us as we asked her to print out a few different pricing scenarios and to swap out certain things for certain other things. She worked with us to offer a Saturday evening price that we could reasonably afford, and she included a few nice upgrades at no charge. Anyone who is looking for an affordable but beautiful venue should seriously consider looking here!
