For the Chicagoans who are wishing they could get away for the holidays, the Crystal Gardens New Year’s Eve 2014 bash is the solution for you. Party amidst the palm trees as DJ Kane and DJ J-Rose provide the soundtrack for your New Year’s celebrations. It’s like a tropical retreat right in the heart of Chicago! With specialty cocktails, Stefani signature hors d’oeuvres, a private terrace to watch the fireworks, a red carpet photo op, and premium open bar from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., you’ll get the star treatment at the Crystal Gardens.

If you’re searching for a more unique experience, make it a New Year’s Eve you’ll never forget by booking one of the many NYE cruise options available!
