New Years Eve is just around the corner! Chicago is known for its famous nightclubs and NYE parties, but which one should you go to this year. We have put together a small list for you to find the perfect place for you and your friends to start 2017 off right. 

5. The MID

The Mid is known for its large crowds but intimate feel. While the club is incredibly popular for a younger audience, its small size allows you to feel closer to your favourite DJ than ever before. This year The Mid is showcasing tons of different Chicago DJs including Gordo and Pairadice looking to play Chicago House, Techno and more. Don't worry your ticket includes a Champagne toast that you need for the New Year's countdown. If you are looking for the Nightclub experience but don't want to pay as much for the typical Chicago Nightclub prices, the Mid will be the perfect place.

4. Concord Music Hall

The Concord has been throwing bang after banger this past year and 2017 will be no different. The Concord Music Hall presents Mala Rodriguez to ring in the New Year with you. If you still want to keep going past midnight Future Rocks will be the official after show for Umphrey's McGee starting at 1:00am. With less than $30 a ticket at for New Years Eve, The Concord is going to be the best place for you for a relatively inexpensive night for a Chicago NYE. You can still buy tickets, but they are going fast! Pick them up for either artist before it's too late! 


3. Umphrey's McGee

Umphrey's McGee is coming back to their hometown this New Year's Eve to give you and their fans a three day event. Why not come back with a bang after not playing at home since 2010! If you are looking for something a little different than a Chicago Nightclub this year, grab tickets for Umphrey's McGee and ring in the New Year with some rock. They will be playing at The Rivera Theatre on the 29th and The Aargon Ballroom the 30th and 31st. This may be your one chance for the next couple of years to see Chicago home rock band!

PRYSM has really proved itself this year. This nightclub just opened up this past summer and has never looked back. It is gaining its popularity everyday and making a statement in the Chicago Nightclub scene. PRYSM is lining up some of Chicago's newest and seasoned DJs to help you out this New Years. With it being one of the the city's largest night clubs, there will definitely be space for you and your friends to blow off steam from this wild year. Your tickets will include a champagne toast and most importantly some amazing Hors D'oeuvres because food is never a bad decision. You can still grab pre-sale priced tickets, but grab them fast, because everyone will want to see what PRYSM does for it's first New Years. 


1. Reaction NYE

Every year you can count on React Presents to throw you the biggest New Year's Eve party you've seen. This year is no different with their two night event, Reaction NYE.

Not only do you have more space than previous years, there are tons of hotels and services for you and your friends to have a safe and comfortable New Year. You do not want to miss this event, grab your tickets before it's too late!
