The Best Chicago 2019 New Years Eve Parties This Year

There’s nothing in the world like Chicago New Years Eve parties. Pretty much every Chicagoan knows how The Windy City gets down on Dec 31st. But for the rest of you, we’ll go into some more detail. Chicago’s pretty well known as a cultural magnet of sorts that attracts artists and creatives alike. So you’ll find no shortage of performances to close the curtain on 2018, like the Blue Man Groups NYE show, or the famous Green Mill Cocktail Lounge’s now annual “Battle of The Saxes” New Years Eve party. 

This year, there’s more than just one fireworks show in ChiTown. Now usually, the sparks and flare are handled pretty much exclusively by Navy Pier. But to ring in 2019, there will also be a fireworks show on the Chicago River and lakefront for all to enjoy. Now personally, we prefer the traditional Navy Pier show, but having options is never a problem.
