You're getting the idea, but there's one small bit I may not have made clear. AT means sharing the same location and does not specify whether you are inside or outside or under or on top, etc. Since IN always means inside, then contrasting them can make it sound like AT means outside, but, in fact, AT could be anywhere at the same location. You will be having Nabe AT the club house. AT doesn't say whether you will be inside or outside. You might be on the lawn of the club house, but you might be inside instead. So we might say your sentence above as, "We will have a Nabe party AT the club house of Jun's apartment complex on July 31 (THE second Sarturday after tomorrow). Specifically, we will have the party IN the club house as there is no possibility that we are going to share Nabe under the sun."

Does that make it more clear?
