    FROM THE Summer 2018 ISSUE
     

    After falling under disrepair for years, Theater on the Lake has emerged from renovations as a brand-new indoor-outdoor venue just in time for summer events.

Come summer, the hottest new outdoor venue in town is Theater on the Lake. This newly renovated, multimillion dollar venue is available to host parties, social gatherings, and corporate outings for groups of up to 1,500 guests. The theater’s 3,500-square-foot upscale tavern, The Lakefront Restaurant, offers a seasonal Midwestern menu, and boasts beautiful views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. The theater itself can seat up to 250 people. “Our full open floor plan, floor-to-ceiling windows, and incredible city and lakefront views make Theater on the Lake an ideal venue for hosting intimate or large-scale events,” says John Wrenn, president of Lakefront Hospitality Group. 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

In 1927, Hilton Hotels’ founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas, will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.
