I always love coming back to the Palmer House. It’s as if I’ve taken the Concorde to Europe for the evening. Relaxing for a moment in the lobby is like being asked to lounge in a Palace of Versailles salon. Such hotels are important to a city, preserving it’s history & helping maintain the sense of continuity that makes people want to return.
Each of the event sites within the hotel are quite unique. We’ve had rocking Corporate blow outs in the Grand Ballroom, elegant Wedding Receptions in the Red Lacquer Room & quirky avant-garde Networking events in the Empire Room. We’ve produced quite a bit of Name Entertainment in each of the ballrooms over the years. It’s such a huge & versatile place. & at the end of the night, you can sit down & simply people watch in that incredible lobby. Our work generally takes us to the wee hours & even at this time, the lobby is still full of guests, visitors, sightseers & revelers.
We’ll be there this weekend & I can’t wait. It’s a reminder of what I love about Chicago & the city that’s made it possible for me to make a living, doing what I love to do. Maybe I’ll see you there!
