Forget big ol' ballrooms, Hotel 71’s NYE par-tay is taking place in its intimate in-house restaurant and bar, Hoyt’s. The theme is speakeasy, so expect silent films, a roaring '20s-clad staff, a four-hour top-shelf open bar, small bites, and a champagne toast. Not within the flapper theme (but completely necessary for a party), will be music by DJ "As-Is" from L.A. Premium drink-package tickets cost $95.
Hoyt's, 71 East Wacker Drive (between Wabash Avenue and Macchesneyer Drive); 312-346-9870.
