Hotel Congress Rings in 2016 Speakeasy Style with A Whiskey Del Bac Whiskey Toast and Themed Rooms!



TUCSON, AZ (November 24, 2015) Hotel Congress continues to not disappoint with their epic party plans as this year they are invoking the speakeasy of the past for this Prohibition Party. What is more befitting of this historic hotel that lived through the dry spell of the 1920’s than to host a bash where the liquor flows freely? Speaking of bashing, they are retiring their famous 15’ taco to bring out a bootlegger’s paradise with King Congress himself busting the Whiskey del Bac barrel to release the nectar of the gods. Tucsonans will descend into downtown in their 1920’s best for the juke joint that will not disappoint.  General admission ticket holders receive a Whiskey del Bac whiskey toast, complimentary party favors for the midnight merriment, use of the free photo booth, and access to the Opium Den which houses their Absinthe Bar. Revelers will dance the night away with plenty of entertainment, award-winning food, and delicious concoctions from the bar.
