New Years Eve in Chicago
31 December 2019
Looking for last minute plans for this New Years Eve? Have no fret — the city is host to an array of dinners, events, parties and more, all the perfect way to help you ring in the New Year.
12-Course Dinner at Acadia
Michelin-starred Acadia chef and owner Ryan McCaskey, with the help of New York chef Paul Liebrandt, crafted an opulent 12-course New Years Eve dinner for just $350. On the menu? Carabinero prawn and Scottish venison, among other mouthwatering delicacies. Optional wine pairings are available for an additional $215. In lieu of 2020, the theme of the night is a Jazz Age-style party. Topping off the party: live music and a midnight ball drop.
Acadia is located at 1639 S Wabash Ave, Chicago, IL 60616.
SX Sky Bar
Just down the block from 1000M, The Hotel Essex’s luxurious sixth floor lounge and bar, SX Sky Bar, brings style and great views to the New Years. Overlooking Grant Park and Lake Michigan, the bar features a retractable glass wall, providing the perfect window for watching the fireworks. With the party running from 8 PM to 2 AM, and appetizers accompanied by an open bar from 9 PM to 1 AM, the $70 ticket is a bargain.
SX Sky Bar is located at 808 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605.
Navy Pier will always bring the classic New Years Eve experience with their grand fireworks display. But this year, that’s not the only draw. Also on the pier: The 8th Annual Chicago Resolution Gala, an exclusive NYE party located in the architecturally stunning Aon Grand Ballroom. You can also spend the night on the lake and pick from several fireworks cruises, offered by Odyssey, Spirit of Chicago and Mystic Blue. And new to the mix, Offshore Rooftop & Bar is hosting their own celebration with unbeatable views, drinks, food, music and more.
Navy Pier is located at 600 E Grand Ave, Chicago, IL 60611.
New Years Eve Ball at the Congress Plaza Hotel
The historic Congress Plaza Hotel is hosting their iconic NYE party. The party, spanning across eight oversized rooms and expected to host 2,500, combines the sophistication of a lavish gala with the high-energy and modern styling of a nightclub. A buffet, multiple bars and DJs and dancing will keep the party going all night long.
The Congress Plaza Hotel is located at 520 S Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60605.
From the 1000M team to you, have a happy, healthy and safe New Years.
