It’s Gonna Get Spooky in the Tower!

Get spooky on Halloween at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel

OCTOBER 2017 – Do you trick or treat? Hit a haunted house? Dress up and go dancing? Stay in and do nothing? Clearly the last one is really not an option for Halloween since it’s one of the best holidays around. This year, we’ll help make your decision easier: Join us at the hotel to take a trip into A Twilight Zone.

On Oct. 28, the 13th floor at the Chicago Athletic Association hotel (a.k.a. Cindy’s!) will get transformed for your mind-bending pleasure with highbrow costumes and a wicked DJ-driven dance party curated by DJ MASEO of De La Soul + special guests. Dive into sensory-defying artistic expression deep within the suites dotting the 13th floor where surprises abound at every turn – artists will be transfiguring rooms to transport you into another dimension. 

Don’t miss Nandini Khaund’s spooky specialty cocktail: the Temporal Paradox is a mysterious fog of translucent flavor and time travel made with Bombay gin, Kubler Absinthe, Dolin Blanc, Fennel-Calamansi Tonic, and Lemon.


The $75 ticket includes access to every inch of the beguiling space, including each of the five decked out suites, from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., a BACARDI® Zombie welcome cocktail, one (1) drink ticket, and samplings of Virtue Cider and Cindy’s Grey Garden cocktails in interactive suites. Plus coat check because, you know, Chicago weather. Get creative with your costume, but think: ’50s psych ward; intergalactic space travel; old Hollywood glam. Need inspiration?

Step out of the party into your room – a hotel Halloween package is available to make the most of your downtown experience. Book and receive:

• 20% off a one-night stay Saturday, October 28
• 2 tickets to A Twilight Zone
• A VIP Bacardi amenity
• $50 in-room dining credit for breakfast in bed

Be sure to get your tickets early so you won’t be left wandering about a field of zombies.
