Hotel Congress Rings in 2016 Speakeasy Style with A Whiskey Del Bac Whiskey Toast and Themed Rooms!

Thursday, December 31, 2015

Hotel Congress continues to not disappoint with their epic party plans as this year they are invoking the speakeasy of the past for this Prohibition Party.

What is more befitting of this historic hotel that lived through the dry spell of the 1920’s than to host a bash where the liquor flows freely?

Speaking of bashing, they are retiring their famous 15’ taco to bring out a bootlegger’s paradise with King Congress himself busting the Whiskey del Bac barrel to release the nectar of the gods. Tucsonans will descend into downtown in their 1920’s best for the juke joint that will not disappoint.

General admission ticket holders receive a Whiskey del Bac whiskey toast, complimentary party favors for the midnight merriment, use of the free photo booth, and access to the Opium Den which houses their Absinthe Bar. Revelers will dance the night away with plenty of entertainment, award-winning food, and delicious concoctions from the bar.

Slated to Perform:
· Kings of Pleasure
· Vintage burlesque by Contessa Oblivian
· Prohibition Disco with Andrew Shuta, Bob Felix, and Dan Hernandez
· Period music from chanteuse Catherine Byrne and pianist Jeff Haskell
· Tom Walbank
· Shadow dancers

All tickets can be purchased online or at the hotel lobby front desk. Those looking to make a night of it can take advantage of specially-themed hotel room packages. For the lucky ones who’ve already made reservations they’re receiving Hotel Congress merchandise, special party favors, champagne, and more.
