Count & Countess Gregula vill be attending and covering their very first Haunted Hotel Ball at the Hilton Chicago on October 27th! Ve are very Hex-cited! Read the official press release below for all the GHOULISH details!
Chicago’s biggest Halloween costume party, Haunted Hotel Ball, returns to Hilton Chicago on Saturday, October 27, 2012 with a live set from trance DJ Matt Darey and a $5,000 costume contest.
Haunted Hotel Ball combines elements of a VIP nightclub experience, with the exclusiveness of a hotel gala, and the terror of a haunted house. The moment you enter Hilton Chicago, you will be directed to the 30,000 square foot underbelly of the 80-year-old hotel, which has been transformed by an Emmy© Award winning design team into an abandoned hotel run by zombies.
Created in 2008 by nightlife producers Global Adrenaline, Haunted Hotel Ball sells out Hilton Chicago and Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale each year. This year, the all-night Halloween bash is also coming to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas as the event seeks to become the top Halloween party brand in the US.
In Chicago, close to 3,000 costumed partygoers will dance to the dark and dirty beats of world renowned DJs and recording artists, including a live set from London trance DJ Matt Darey. Other entertainment includes encounters with the Haunted Hotel Ball vampire bellmen, zombie cocktail servers dressed as French maids and theatrical performances by costumed go-go dancers.
Outrageous, bizarre and risqué will be among the Halloween costumes competing in the $5,000 cash and prize virtual costume contest. Photos of the top contestants will be posted on the Haunted Hotel Ball website following the event and visitors will vote for their favorite costumes from the three Haunted Hotel Ball locations.
“Unlike nightclubs with permanent fixtures, hotel ballrooms like those at Hilton Chicago are dynamic and a blank canvas for our design team to completely transform”, says Christian Banach, owner of Global Adrenaline. “We have proven with our successful parties in Chicago and Scottsdale and now Las Vegas that partygoers want to experience Halloween in a one-of-kind environment. The nightclubs will be there tomorrow, Haunted Hotel Ball will not.”
Haunted Hotel Ball takes place on Saturday, October 27, 2012 at Hilton Chicago, 720 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, IL 60605 from 9:00PM-3:00AM. Early-bird tickets are $40 and table reservation packages that include two premium bottles, eight party tickets, reserved seating, start at $1,000. For those who dare to stay overnight, a special Halloween weekend hotel room rate of $209 is available for both October 26and October 27 at Hilton Chicago.
