When considering Chicago condos for sale, you should keep in mind that downtown you have access to the best spots in the city to celebrate the holidays. In particular, the clubs, restaurants and hotels of Chicago sport spectacular events for New Year’s, a holiday made for city festivity.
Whether you are looking for an intimate date for the evening or a raucous party to sip champagne at, downtown Chicago can offer an affair to remember. Here are a few of the best spots to check out on New Year’s—just make your reservations soon!
Benchmark – Join the young professional set at Benchmark for New Year’s—the $100 all-inclusive party starts at 9 p.m. and lasts until close. The Old Town location is easily accessible by the El if you can’t catch a cab on the busiest night of the year, and the package includes premium liquors, red bull and champagne. For a single twenty-something, this could be a great party for making new friends or finding romance before Valentine’s Day!
The Drake – There’s nothing more fun than spending midnight in one of Chicago’s most famous buildings on New Year’s—especially during one of Chicago’s biggest parties sponsored by Ciroc vodka. Chicago Scene Magazine organized The Drake’s event this year and will be on hand—the gala will include performances by the band Hey Champ and DJs Jernell Geronimo, Dani Deahl & Kalendr. The historic Drake will host 2,000 people from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. and you can buy tickets for a variety of different packages depending on how you want to celebrate!
Signature Room on the 95th – Ring in the New Year from the top of the Hancock Tower on Michigan Avenue by celebrating at the Signature Room. An early dinner sitting includes a bottle of champagne and a three-course gourmet meal. A later sitting includes a five-course meal, open bar and dance music from a live band. At midnight, a balloon drop and fireworks from the 95th floor make for the perfect scene to remember 2010 and welcome 2011 with a loved one! If you have visitors from out of town, take advantage of the Signature Room’s special arrangement with the downtown W Hotel—you’ll receive reduced room rates at the W with the purchase of a Signature Room New Year’s package.
Carnivale – A festive dinner at one of Chicago’s most exciting restaurants makes for a great date on New Year’s, either for a long-time love or a new romance. Starting at 5 p.m. the incredible Latin-inspired cuisine is joined by live entertainment including samba dancers, stilt walkers and DJ. A balloon drop and champagne toast at midnight rounds out the night.
The Crystal Gardens at Navy Pier – If you want to spend New Year’s on Chicago’s most famous tourist attraction, join the party at Navy Pier. A truly see-and-be-seen event will take place in the Pier’s Crystal Gardens, a one-acre indoor palm court and six-story glass atrium filled with tropical plants to take you away from Chicago’s coldest season. Attendees will have open bar and dance music from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., a private terrace to watch the midnight fireworks, countdown to New Year’s on the famous Ferris wheel, and an after-party at The Underground. VIP tickets and private table reservations are available.
Whether you choose to celebrate at home in a downtown Chicago condo, and out on the town with the city of Chicago, have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve!
