Cooper's Hawk Esquire Chicago

Guests can enjoy a Bubbles Flight in the grand tasting room for $14.99 or choose to sample some very special wines and Champagnes from the restaurant’s vast wine list.

Nancy's Pizza

On New Year's Eve, guests can pre-party in swanky surroundings that evoke the brand’s 1971 roots (the year in which their founders invented Chicago’s famous stuffed pizza) while enjoying a bottle (or more) of wine from France, Italy, California and Washington State for half price (6:00 p.m. to Close). Guests who are celebrating earlier can dine on half-priced classic appetizers from Chef Kayla’s scratch kitchen (11:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.).

On New Year's Day, Nancy’s makes it easy to chill out – watch the parade or football – or binge-watch some of your faves! And, if necessary, nurse your hangover with 2-for-1 pizza when you order online! For those who might tend to over-indulge, consider the hangover-healing benefits of pizza:

  • Carbs, like those in Nancy’s amazing house-made crusts, can help to counteract nausea and low blood sugar caused by long bouts of drinking with little food
  • Order spinach on your pie – it’s packed with folic acid, vitamin C and sulfur – all of which help to combat hangover symptoms
  • Add a dash of red pepper flakes – chili peppers are natural pain relievers that can speed up the body’s detoxification process

The Hyde

Start the evening in style with a white-tablecloth three-course dinner and wine pairing from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Then, roar into an evening of Cabaret and burlesque performances amidst live jazz music.

The three-course prix-fixe dinner and wine pairing is from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.; dinner is $99.00 per person and includes access to the Cabaret and Burlesque after-party with CBD-infused cocktails and an open bar. Early Bird tickets to the After-party are $40.00 (until December 26th); and $65.00 after 12/26 and at the door. Reservations are required and can be made by calling 773-493-9333.
