Join us for our 2014 Annual CADS Holiday Party in 1920's style!!!
Room 13 is the Old Chicago Inn’s very own authentic 1920s era speakeasy. Located in the garden level of the Old Chicago Inn, this event will provide our members with an experience unlike any other. From the red light at the Sheffield entrance, welcoming you as a period signal that “you are at the right place” to the authentic sliding “peep hole” that requires a password in order to enter, you will be transported back to another era the moment you enter Room 13.
Included with the tickets will be heavy appetizers, Mr. Vince Willis on piano, and a complimentary glass of sparkling wine upon arrival.
Resident mixologist, Ted Carlson, will serve up classic American cocktails, using recipes and ingredients that hearken from the age of jazz and earlier. While pouring libations made with the finest ingredients, Ted also shares his knowledge of the history of cocktail, often with cultural anecdotes that bring the prohibition era to life. The décor in Room 13 has been carefully selected to reflect the era, making your experience a true Speakeasy occasion.
Space is limited to the first 50 guests who register and pay in advance.
Once registered and just prior to the event, you will receive a password that will be required in order to enter – this will be strictly enforced. Additionally, this is a CASH ONLY establishment (there were no credit cards in the 1920’s) but if you run low there is a convenient ATM on the ground floor of the Inn.
