Testimonials

The Chicago Scene New Year's Party at the Drake was one of the best I've ever been to. We spend New Years in Miami, last year and it was the worst experience of my life. This year we decided to stay home and go to your party and had a great time. Great music, plenty of bars, great food, and a great crowd.

I never send thank you letters but I just wanted to say thanks from my group of friends from University of Wisconsin, Madison and University of Illinois in Champaign, We felt like we knew half the people at the event. It was the first time we had gone to a nice hotel party and was very happy with the choice. Everything went very smoothly from Check-in and the bathrooms to the bar service and the DJ's. We loved all the different rooms with DJ's playing a different type of music in each. BTW we thought the VIP tickets were well worth the money. I'm sure we will bring a bigger group next year.

I had heard great things about the Chicago Scene NYE Party at The Drake Hotel but this was our first time at the party and it was a blast! We stayed at the hotel for three nights and made a great little vacation out of it. A few of our friend that we went to college with at University of Michigan that live in Chicago invited us to the party and we are very happy we made the trip in. We look forward to coming back to Chicago for New years in the next few years.

Great Party! I went to school at University of Indian and a bunch of guys from my Frat House made the party sort of a 5 year post graduation reunion. I now live in San Francisco so making the trip back to the cold was not something I was looking forward to. It turned out to be one of the Best New Years Parties I've ever been to.
