IBC Pictoral History
Let us host your holiday event!
Who and what we are … Collectively for over 78 years we are two separate entities uniquely designed under one roof – a public banquet facility and private billiard club that either of which (independently or collectively) host four hour small to mid size planned parties and special events to accommodate 20 to 100 guests. Unique special events ranging from traditional family celebrations of life (Anniversaries, Graduations, Birthdays, Showers, Weddings, etc.) to corporate team building meetings, school, church, fund raisers and community events.
Who and what we are not … We are not simply the all too typical restaurant, gaming arcade, pool room, bar room, banquet room or any form of traditional public place of amusement.
Our basic business philosophy that has largely led to collectively over 78 years in business …
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always try to do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too can become great.” … Mark Twain
As for the billiards side of our business … “Now in its 49th year our private clubs requirement of a few hundred dollars in annual dues has fortunately proven to keep people of questionable character out. Yet in complete contrast, has encouraged people of proven integrity and honor to join in!”… Jim Parker

The Illinois Billiard Club (IBC) was founded in 1973 and has operated as a private, members-only billiard club and virtual living museum of billiard collectables dating back to the 1850’s. Membership currently open to players of all skill levels.
For banquets, private parties, and most all family or corporate gatherings, the independent or combined use of the Illinois Billiard Club and Bonnie’s Dining & Banquets facilities offers a unique experience not to be missed!
