Hospitality is certainly my passion and now a profession. I have started Art Room Events, back in 2015, an event production of unique social opportunities in the Chicagoland area for corporate and team building activities, residential & hotel entertainment, and private celebrations. Our experiences are best described as interactive, creative, social, and fun! They are great to work as a team, improve communication, unplug creativity, connect, and laugh. One of the first experiences we have introduced was an interactive, 1920’s styled Speakeasy Murder Mystery Improve Cocktail party that was inspired by the historical figures residing in Chicago during the prohibition era. The Dil Pickle Club was a site of cultural interchange in 1920's, full of socialites, brothel owners, bootleggers, radicals, mobsters, activists, artists, and even hobos.

Located in the historical mansion, designed in 1883, originally constructed as a boarding house, this piece of property has seen an array of businesses come and go. In 2002, an Irish lawyer from Ireland purchased the buildings to open The Galway Arms. The historical design of each of its rooms still resembles old 19th century look and creates a perfect atmosphere for our Dil Pickle Club Speakeasy Murder Mystery cocktail events.
This is a great experience to book alone or with a group of friends/family. Tons of fun & best memories guaranteed. Some accessories and outfits will be provided. Food will be available for purchase.
