Located inside The Matrix Club, the highly anticipated multicultural convention, banquet, and performing arts venue in Naperville, The Matrix Room has opened. The Matrix Room provides impressively creative menus, a world-class bar, and stimulating ambience for a memorable dining and drinking experience. The Matrix Room features an international live music lounge and fusion bar along with a culturally diverse menu, created by Executive Chef Alonso Beckford.

Originally from Jamaica, Beckford emigrated to the United States and settled in New York City, bringing with him the flavors of his family’s Caribbean roots. Throughout his career, Beckford has gained vast and varied experience in the kitchen. Beckford’s love for art, multiculturalism, education in food nutrition, and simply bringing people together over a thoughtful meal made him an ideal fit for The Matrix Room. He is thrilled to bring his take on contemporary global cuisine to the people of Naperville and the surrounding areas. 

Connected to the restaurant is Meg’s Lounge, a beautiful bar space dedicated to the memory and vivacious spirit of Meghna Kulkarni, the daughter of founders Madan and Shebani Kulkarni who passed away suddenly in February 2022. After the passing of their only child, the Kulkarnis established a charity in her name. Mission Meghna works to fundraise and support local & international organizations that assist underserved children, girls and women around the globe. A signature cocktail—available only at Meg’s Lounge—will support Mission Meghna, as a portion of proceeds will directly benefit the charity.
