You can't get more festive than this. As befits one of the world's best hotels, The Peninsula Chicago
is going all out for the holiday season. Expect decadent multi-course meals, festive décor, Fashion Afternoon Teas, visits from Santa and Mrs. Claus, and a magical New Year's Eve celebration. On Christmas Eve, dine to the music of a Viennese Quartet in The Lobby
or enjoy a five-course dinner at AAA-Five-Diamond rated Avenues
, prepared by Chef de Cuisine Graham Elliot Bowles. Christmas Day promises to be nothing short of spectacular. The kids will be delighted by a visit from Santa, entertainment by a magician, and other fun activities in the Pen Kids Holiday Activity Room. During the day (10:30 a.m.- 5:30 p.m.), The Lobby
will host a delicious buffet accompanied by live music. The five-course Christmas Dinner, featuring seasonal cuisine, will knock your socks off. But the fun doesn't stop there. The festivities continue through New Year's, with a Black Tie Gala including a champagne reception, exquisite dinner menu, music from Eric Remschneider and The Peninsula Big Band, and-- after the Scottish pipers ring in 2008-- dancing til all hours.
