Nutcracker Tea

Enhance the magic of The Joffrey Ballet’s Nutcracker with an inspired Holiday Tea at Lockwood Restaurant prior to or following a performance.

Holiday Tea at The Palmer House, built for the World Fair’s leading lady Bertha Palmer, is the perfect complement to The Joffrey Ballet’s enchanting new production of The Nutcracker, set during the Columbian Exposition.

Enjoy Holiday Tea surrounded by friends and family below the frescoes of the grand, historic lobby beautifully decorated for the holidays and anchored by an 18-foot holiday tree, decorated with 7,000 sparkling lights among its 15,000 branches.
