Sa-SHAY into the New Year
New Year’s Eve is about to blow through the Windy City – and if you still haven’t a sure spot to stylishly ring in 2015, then look no further than swish new River North scenester SHAY. Fret not, dancers and prancers, for this neon-lit late-night lounge from the same crew behind nearby club fave Cuvée has all of your December 31st celebrations covered with a lavish dinner buffet, top tunes spun by some of the city’s best DJs, complimentary champagne at midnight and by-the-bottle service.
Pre-book your entry ticket then slip into something sparkly and sa-shay over from 8pm for party pickings like sumac-spiced fries, chicken croquettes, duck confit rillette and dainty desserts, or if your entourage is in attendance, book a private table – that way you and your up-to-18-strong cortège will have somewhere plush to plonk your dancing shoes, plus a three-litre bottle of Veuve to pop as you plan out those pesky new year’s resolutions. Post-bubbles, sidle over to one of the two bars for boutique pale ales, French wines and signature cocktails like the SHAY Sparkler (a potent mix of pisco, Hophead vodka, pineapple and prosecco) or get your groove on to the state-of-the-art sound system beats. Cheers to another year!
