Chicago River Fireworks
This year, the Chicago River waterfront in the heart of the city will come alive with a tremendous, spread-out fireworks display at the stroke of midnight marking 2019’s grand entrance. The show will go along with the river between Wolf Point and Lake Shore Drive, meaning your Hotel Chicago home base provides fantastically convenient access to what’s sure to be a pyrotechnic showstopper.
New Year’s Eve at Navy Pier
As a guest of ours here at Hotel Chicago, you’re only about a mile from the famous Navy Pier, which happens to be another stellar place to mark New Year’s Eve: from the 7th Annual Chicago Resolution Gala to lakefront fireworks!
Celebrate New Year’s Eve Among the Beasts
Perhaps you’d prefer to experience the fanfare of December 31st amid birds and beasts from across the globe. Well, you’re in luck here at Hotel Chicago: You’ll be within easy reach of Zoo Year’s Eve over at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Festive light displays, ice-sculpting, DJ sets, adult beverages, and access to the Lincoln Park menagerie among the animal houses help park this truly “wild” holiday tradition.
A Craft Beer New Year’s
Celebrate the close of 2018, the launch of 2019, and Chicagoland’s outstanding craft-beer scene at Brew Year’s Eve over at Architectural Artifacts in Ravenswood. Ten local craft breweries will be serving up 25 delicious beers for this sudsy soiree, and you’ll also have a wine bar and some signature cocktails at your beck and call as well.
New Year’s Eve With Blue Man Group
Party favors, noisemakers, an Auld Lang Syne singalong, and a midnight toast will help spice up the New Year’s Eve version of the Blue Man Group performance at the Briar Street Theatre on December 31st.
