The 8th Annual Resolution Gala at The Aon Grand Ballroom will be the definitive NYE party in Chitown. Tickets to this event tend to sell out pretty fast, so don’t miss your chance to secure a spot at this exclusive Chicago New Years Eve 2020 party.

The 2020 Chicago New Years Eve Party. PERIOD.

For the 8th year in a row, we’re bringing the hottest Chicago New Years party to the Aon Grand Ballroom. This massive venue can fit over 2000 people, and at full capacity still feels pretty spacious. The stunning dome-style ceiling and panoramic window display are truly a sight to see. As if that wasn’t enough, you’ll also get amazing views of Chicago’s skyline and Lake Michigan.
We’re sending you off into 2020 right, feast your eyes on a bountiful buffet with plenty of options, and 30 bars with bartenders ready to serve up refreshments. Dance all night as we’ll have DJ’s (yes, plural) taking turns turning tables on the center stage spinning all the hits, anthems, and bangers. As the clock approaches midnight, the DJ will call attention to the entire party and commence a traditional New Year’s Eve countdown. After which, watch in awe at the Annual Navy Pier NYE Fireworks Show!
