New Year's in Bucktown, Chicago

If you are like most of us, chances are you haven't even begun to think about how to spend the most over-hyped night of the year.  While I normally hold the opinion that there is nothing wrong with retiring at 1030 pm on December 31st (still 2 hours after my bedtime), if you are insistent on getting out and about and drinking/dancing/etc then I've compiled some options for you close to Ray's Bucktown Bed and Breakfast!

Club Lucky is having an early seating the includes a chef's special dinner and NO COVER. If you choose a seating after 930 pm you get a bottle of champagne, party favors, and live music to ring in the new year for $25 (in addition to dinner).  It's a nice local staple that is a great and cozy way to spend the last evening of 2013.

Hot Chocolate is offering a 4-5 course Paris-themed menu with optional add-ons and a great classy atmosphere about a 10-15 minute walk away from the b&b.

Don't feel like paying for food when you want to save all your calories/money for drinking on one of the liquor industries most lucrative nights of the year? There are plenty of bars in the area, some with all-you-can-drink passes available for purchase and some who are just operating as if it's any ol' night of the year. A few of our neighborhood favorites are Lemmings, Map Room, Jack and Gingers, Gallery Cabaret, Floyds, Green Eye, and many, many, many more (we have a LOT of bars here, these are just some really good, really close ones).

Thinking you may take the festivities a bit too seriously to make the drive home?  We may still have rooms available at Ray's - give us a call!
