With the holidays right around the corner, you may be wondering where to celebrate New Year’s Eve. With so many different options in the Chicago area, it’s not always an easy decision choosing between attending a traditional banquet hall party, a nightclub, or a hotel-type event. So, why not attend an event that provides the best of all three?

Sylwester Chicago is returning to Meridian Banquets for the 2016 NYE celebration.  “This year we are reaching new heights by proudly inviting our guests to join us in a sophisticated, elegant and mysterious Venetian Masquerade,” says Erik. “For those that would like to avail in a bit of mystery, we will be providing  a variety of optional masques at the event; we will also host a contest for the most intriguing Venetian Masquerade ensemble.”

Sylwester Chicago by LYVE Group offers a night embraced in luxurious décor, featuring an upscale four-course dinner, premium open bar, plus unique sounds provided by some of Chicago’s finest DJs in multiple rooms, all which are distinctively themed. This event prides itself as being truly one-of-a-kind.

 The event promises three elegant ballrooms (Sapphire, Ruby, and Lace) which will entertain over 900 guests with different types of music, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, and lavish décor. There will be an interactive midnight countdown on LED video walls with a mega balloon drop, as well as a few special surprises including the themed event, mysterious performances. The Sapphire and Ruby rooms will feature a premium four-course dinner, 6 hour open bar, and much more.  Finally, the intimate Lace Lounge will element a nightclub vibe with V.I.P. sections, an ice martini bar, delicious hors d'oeuvres, and bottle service for interested groups.

Sylwester Chicago is produced by Erik Kwiek of LYVE Group. Erik has over 15 years of DJ-ing experience in all the major clubs in Chicago, including opening for some of the world’s renowned DJs. He is currently a resident DJ at one of Chicago’s top luxurious spots–Cuveé, and has a radio mix show on Dance Factory 92.7FM, all of which makes Erik no stranger to the Chicago’s nightlife scene. Erik also keeps very busy in the world of advertising as senior art director for one of Chicago’s top digital agencies. Eventually, Erik decided to merge his skills honed in advertising, along with his nightlife expertise to produce  a luxurious and unique NYE event like this. The annually sold-out event continuously proves to be a huge success. Due to high popularity, for the past two years the NYE party has been hosted at the upscale Meridian Banquets in Rolling Meadows.
