The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here! It is time to say goodbye to 2020 and say hello to the new year by supporting some of our favorite Chicago businesses. There are plenty of delicious takeout options for those looking to spend a low key NYE at home. For those ready to leave the house, check out these COVID-safe in person experiences!
CELEBRATE AT HOME WITH TAKEOUT
Untitled presents Untethered: an elaborate New Year’s Celebration at home. Instead of hosting the party, they bring the party to you with their three immense liquor packages! Each package offers a luxurious bottle of Champagne, plenty of bottles of liquor, and some of your favorite garnishes to bring the party straight to you. A live DJ and countdown will also be available to help keep NYE traditions alive. Michelle L’Amour will be hosting a livestream performance so make sure to tune in!
Nobu is rolling in the new year with their sushi takeout for two! Finish the year off right with plenty of delicious dishes and a variety of fresh rolled sushi. And what would NYE be without something boozy? Add on a bottle of bubbly and leave your troubles in 2020!
Go into 2021 with a positive mindset and a full belly. The Smith at River North has a delectable NYE feast waiting for you to pick up on 12/30 and 12/31. Begin your dining experience with some chicken wontons and tuna tartare before making your way to lobster risotto and braised short ribs. Lastly, satisfy your sweet tooth with hazelnut layer cake. No NYE feast would be complete without some festive attire! The meal comes with NYE party hats to help bring in the new year!
Ring in the new year with Proxi’s globally inspired menu for pickup. Enjoy smoked butternut squash paired with braised lamb and other mouthwatering selections. Top it all off with the matcha cheesecake all for $140. Order ASAP to experience this tasty NYE feast!
Or… SAFE IN-PERSON EXPERIENCES
Did the 11pm curfew on NYE ruin your holiday plans? Have no fear, Recess is here! Recess will start the party early with the countdown beginning at 5pm. This event is FREE to attend with a reservation! Celebrate on Recess’s large patio with complimentary champagne toasts and snazzy NYE attire. When the clock strikes 11, before you grab for that special someone, grab first one of the take home booze kits to keep the party going at home!
Finally say goodbye to 2020 and bring in the new year with The Gray’s 2020 Be Gone package. Free parking is included, so feel free to stay up all night with a chilled bottle of Prosecco and your closest friends! And don’t worry, the Kimpton has your morning after covered with a hangover kit and a late checkout.
Put to rest a year full of challenges the right way! There are plenty of options for everyone to enjoy and properly bring in the new year. Have a safe and happy new year and take advantage of what your city has to offer!
