  • Most Valuable New Restaurant

    FROM THE Spring 2018 ISSUE

Rosemont’s MB Financial Park is booming with entertainment, dining and even a new baseball team coming in May. Now you can get your sports fix with The Draft Room, a new spot in the Kings Dining & Entertainment complex. The evolved sports-bar concept has 40 beers on draft and 14-foot, arenastyle LED HD TV, which is “the ultimate way to catch a game,” says Kings Chief Operating Officer Josh Rossmeisl.

Here guests can also find grub prepared by a from-scratch kitchen with specialties like Baja street tacos and Nashville hot chicken. There’s also a beer garden patio, plus the MVP Room that seats 40 and can be rented for private dining and events. The entire restaurant is also available for buyouts for up to 350 guests.

Members of The Illinois Hotel & Lodging Association (IHLA) placed their bets for a good cause this summer at the 11th annual Pony Up for the Kids fundraiser event, held at Arlington International Racecourse. Proceeds went directly into a fund for the IHLA Educational Foundation Scholarship program, which provides financial assistance to local students pursuing degrees in hospitality. (See the latest winners on page 45.) To date, the program has awarded $400,000 to deserving students. Guests were able to enjoy the racecourse’s private Beverly D.


The work of Bob Doepel and his staff at Chicago Scenic Studios speaks for itself, having produced some of the most iconic sets for museums, TV and film and corporate events.
