This River North hot spot doesn't need a holiday like NYE to draw a (good- looking) crowd, so reservations are highly recommended for this fete. The $125 general admission ticket buys you an open bar from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., a complimentary champagne toast, and plenty of food to keep you from ringing in the new year with a massive hangover. Chicago's DJ Konsept will be spinning into the wee hours as well. If you're looking to elevate your party, table resos with bottle service can be arranged for groups of six to twelve ($1,000 to $2,500), which also include the general admission perks. What were we saying about avoiding a hangover?
