New Golf-Themed Gastro Pub Opens at Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center

A new gastro pub, Tin Cup, located at the Hilton Chicago/Oak Brook Hills Resort & Conference Center has officially opened its doors.

Formerly The Grille, the restaurant can hold 88 guests and now features a new menu and design.

"Tin Cup has that gathering place vibe, where friends can meet up to enjoy a freshly made salad or sandwich," says Brad Ott, director of operations. "There's a casual air about it, conducive to hoisting a cold one after a hard-day of work or a hard-played 18 holes."

For political figures and celebrities, it means hiring bodyguards and Secret Service. And for the average person, it can mean just about anything. 

Event planners in particular have to take all of these security measures and more into account because they are entrusted to keep every level of people, from your average Jane Doe to the President, safe and secure.
