Celebrating New Year’s Eve in Chicago’s Loop

Friday, December 19th, 2014

Get ready to pop the bubbly and dance the night away! That time of the year has arrived when we make toasts, celebrate the past years, and resolve to make the coming year one to remember! New Years Eve is a time when living and renting in Downtown Chicago truly becomes a luxury. From exclusive parties to the hottest concerts, here’s a run down of where Loop dwellers can ring in the New Year with a bang!

Renter residents in Chicago’s Loop are never at a shortage of great venues at which to celebrate. The Hard Rock Hotel at 230 North Michigan, one of Chicago’s most well-known musical establishments, hosts its annual party sponsored by Playboy. The event is sure to bring a great crowd looking for some raging fun. Only a short stroll from OneEleven, MDA City Apartments, Coast, and 73 E Lake Apartments, it’s a great option for those Loop renter residents looking to keep the celebrations close to home. If parties are not your bag then don’t be discouraged! Downtown Chicago’s theater will be up and alive on New Years Eve so you can head up to the Cadillac Palace Theater on 151 West Randolph, to enjoy a production of the classic Cinderella.

Looking for a larger event? Chicago’s Historic Gold Coast neighborhood plays host to some of the most upmarket celebrations in the Downtown area. In years past, thousands have flocked to The Drake Hotel on 140 East Walton for a night of food, drinks, dancing, and fun. Guests are treated to Hors D’Oeuvres, the finest DJs, and a midnight champagne toast! Residents of The Seneca Apartments, One East Delaware, Gold Coast City Apartments, and The Chicagoan are all within easy walking distance to The Drake, which is situated just off the Magnificent Mile and Lake Shore Drive.

Perhaps some of the greatest New Year’s Eve celebrations happen at Streterville’s premiere lake-side landmark, Navy Pier. This year marks the 3rd Annual Chicago Resolution Gala at the Grand Ballroom Navy Pier. Lined with bars and buffet tables, ticket holders have access to a night of fun and food on Lake Michigan. At the strike of midnight, fireworks from the pier provide a magical conclusion to an amazing night of celebrations. Residents of 500 N Lake Shore Drive, Optima Center Chicago, Axis Apartments and CityFront Place have the luxury of viewing the fireworks display from the building rooftop or from the luxury of their own apartments.
