Happy Holidays from the Virgin Hotels Chicago Family

The holidays are upon us and we’ve got your social survival guide right here. It’s time to get glammed up and ready for some festive fun.

Friendsgiving (11.13 – 11.19)
Friendsgiving is about spending time with the people you wish you were related to. This year, the only thing you need to make for dinner is reservations. Join Chef Moosah at the Chef’s Table in Commons Club for a special dinner for 10, time slots at 6 and 8 nightly. We also have a prix-fixe menu for those dining in smaller parties.


Thanksgiving (11.23)
This Thanksgiving, don’t lift a finger. Leave the dishes to us aka Chef Moosah. He’s prepared a prix-fixe menu of our holiday dreams including the Perfect Turkey Plate with truffles. Yes, that was turkey with truffles (and truffle scented gravy!) We’ll be open for the feast starting at 4 PM.tgiving-6858
