Torn between sitting home on New Year’s Eve (ho, hum) and making the big effort to go into Chicago? There is another option that will let you get glammed up vintage Hollywood style, enjoy genuine Las Vegas entertainment, and ring in 2019 close to home.
The Rat Pack is Back will headline New Years Eve with “Timeless” at The Hilton Oak Brook Hills Resort on December 31, from 8:30 p.m. to midnight. The world-renowned Las Vegas-based show, comprised of the world’s best Rat Pack impersonators and a 15-piece Big Band, will bring Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin straight from the Vegas strip for one last New Year’s Eve celebration.
Travel back in time to the era of eternal cool to listen and dance to the music of your parents’ generation with classic hits such as “The Lady is a Tramp,” “Mr. Bojangles,” and “My Way.”
The Rat Back is Back made an appearance at the Oak Brook Hills Resort in 2016 to rave reviews. ABC TV flew in by helicopter to cover the event in its 2016 “Countdown Chicago” telecast that year.
The backdrop to this world class NYE experience is the resort’s mid-century luxurious 13,000 square-feet Grand Ballroom where the “Timeless” theme comes to life. Choose your seat among the elegant four-top cocktail tables, sip classic era cocktails from the premium open bar, savor gourmet bites (think crab cakes, shrimp cocktail, sushi, smoked salmon, caviar on deviled eggs) from the opulent food stations, and indulge at the chocolate gourmet fountain with an assortment of sweet treats and dessert. And dance like there’s no tomorrow on the spacious dance floor. Grab a hotel room or take a car back home to your own bed.
Tickets include reserved seating (book early to select the best seats), premium open bar, food and dessert stations, party favors, balloon drop at midnight, and a champagne toast.
VIP tables include all of this plus premier seating in velvet rope section, bottle of champagne at table, private VIP lounge access, and the opportunity for a meet and greet with The Rat Pack from 8 to 8:30 p.m. Reserve early for a discount and the best seats.
The Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center is located at 3500 Midwest Road in Oak Brook. For more information, visit oakbrookhillsresort.com or RSVP at timelessnye.eventbrite.com.
