Your Special Event, Your Way

A Special Events Team that expands your perception of what is possible!

Ala Carte Entertainment (A.C.E) was founded in 1970 by Fred Hoffmann, and was later joined by his son Mark Hoffman, who now serves as Vice President of A.C.E, watching as it grows serving local communities in the Chicagoland area. A.C.E began with a single location in Chicago called Snuggery. Snuggery pioneered music video, dynamic performance art, sound, and lighting innovations that led to Snuggery being featured in a 'TIME Magazine' cover story of US nightclubs. It was also named in 'Playboy Magazine' as one of the top singles bars in the USA. By 1988 the company grew with more Snuggery locations in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs and created Excalibur one of the companies first nightclubs, which paved the way for the evolution of Ala Carte Entertainment.
