Kinzie Hotel spices up Valentine's Day with 'love potions'

Chicago’s Kinzie Hotel has partnered with Chicago’s Femme du Coupe interactive mixology company to give guests a unique Valentine’s offering. On Feb. 11 and Feb. 18, lovebirds are invited to partake in the Valentine’s Love Potion Package. Couples will enjoy a romantic stay in a luxurious guestroom at the hotel kicked off by a special guestroom visit by a Femme du Couple mixologist with a vintage cocktail cart armed with aphrodisiac-infused elixirs.

The “Love Doctor” will be on call to fix up customized love-themed cocktails featuring Femme du Coupe’s Le Sirop specialty syrups, a selection of locally made premium spirits and natural aphrodisiacs. For $179, guests will receive two Love Potion drinks personally crafted by a Femme du Coupe mixologist in their guestroom, a custom take-home bottle of a Le Sirop mixer along with instructions on how to recreate the special recipe they enjoyed, a lavishly appointed guestroom with views of the city to admire while toasting, evening appetizers and a deluxe continental breakfast.  

“We’re hoping our Valentine’s Love Potions help put couples in the mood for a memorable night on the town,” said Andrew Eck, GM of Kinzie Hotel, an independent 215-room property operated by Portfolio Hotels & Resorts. “Staying true to our ‘Chicago Starts Here’ mantra, we’re proud to partner with locally based organizations like Femme du Coupe to give guests authentic experiences.”
