Description

Join us on Monday, December 31st as we continue our tradition of sending out the old year and ringing in the new in Violet Hour style!

We're offering two opportunities to save yourself a seat (ignoring our usual 'no reservations' policy) and toast the end of 2018 with a cocktail!

First Seating (for the early birds) (6-8pm) -$15, inclusive of both tax and gratuity

A $15 ticket to this seating guarantees your spot (no waiting in line!) and comes with a New Year's Eve punch or champagne cocktail slushy (yes, we will be serving champagne cocktail slushies).

Cocktails from our curated New Year's Eve menu of Violet Hour favorites, both past and present, will be available for purchase a la carte.

Ticket includes the following (per person):
  • Guaranteed seating (assigned upon arrival)
  • One champagne slushy or glass of NYE punch
  • Access to NYE food items available for purchase a la carte
  • Access to NYE 'Luxury' cocktail menu available for purchase a la carte
  • Osetra caviar and sparkling Vouvray pairing available for pre-order (email rachael@theviolethour.com for more information)

Second Seating (for the midnight revelers) (9pm-1am) - $150, inclusive of both tax and gratuity

The $150 ticket to the later seating offers guests the opportunity to select their own seats from a floor plan and imbibe unlimited cocktails from our carefully curated menu of Violet Hour favorites, past and present (including the aforementioned slushy). We'll also be reserving a little space for dancing while still maintaining The Violet Hour's intimate feel-- here's the chance to show off that fancy footwork!

Ticket Includes the Following (per person) :
  • Guaranteed seating (choose your own seat from seat map with ticket purchase)
  • Unlimited Menu of Violet Hour favorite cocktails--including our special, NYE champagne slushy and a build-your-own champagne cocktail option-- beer, wine, non-alcoholic cocktails and standard mixed drinks*
  • Champagne toast at midnight
  • Access to NYE food items, available for purchase a la carte
  • Access to NYE luxury cocktails and flights, available for purchase a la carte
  • Osetra caviar and sparkling Vouvray pairing available for pre-order (email rachael@theviolethour.com for more information)
*Items not listed on the NYE menu, such as absinthe and other specialty spirits, are not included in the package, but may be available for a la carte purchase.

What to eat...?

In addition to the a la carte food menu that will be available all night, Chef de Cuisine Jeremy Nelson is preparing a small menu of luxe dishes to fit the occasion (Perigord truffles have been rumored). This New Year's Eve special menu is available for either seating and comes as a package (it includes an amuse bouche, and two small plates). Available exclusively via pre-order (look for the 'NYE specials' option when purchasing your tickets!). Some light bar nibbles are included as part of the ticket price for the second seating.

We are also offering an opportunity for a premium caviar and bubbles pairing for those who wish to truly live large. This pairing must be pre-ordered, email rachael@theviolethour.com for more details!








FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

All guests must be 21 and older.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

We do not have dedicated parking or valet service and would encourage all attendees to stay safe and arrange to come by cab, rideshare, or public transportation. We are located just one block south of the Damen blue line stop. (The CTA traditionally offers rides for just one penny on New Year's Eve!)

How do I find The Violet Hour?

Look for the mural wall directly across the street from Big Star. There will be a yellow light on over the door!

I want to sit with my friends, but we each want to purchase our own tickets--how do we go about that?

6pm-8pm Seating

For this earlier portion of the evening, seats will be assigned upon arrival. If you are part of a group, simply purchase your tickets online and then be sure to arrive together and present yourselves to the host as a group. We will do our best to accommodate all groups, but can make no guarantees for parties larger than four. Parties of more than four should email rachael@theviolethour.com after purchasing tickets in order to ensure seats together.

9pm-1am Seating

The seat map for the later seating, makes purchasing tickets with friends easy. Make sure you and your friends are in communication while purchasing your tickets and select seats at the same table or in the same area. If you have a large group, there is also an option to reserve an entire banquette.

If your friends are not able to purchase their tickets at the exact same time, send an email to rachael@theviolethour.com immediately upon completion of your ticket purchase. We will put a hold on up to two seats at the same table for up to 24 hours that the other members of your party can access with a provided code. If they do not make use of the code to purchase those seats within 24 hours, the tickets will be released and the seats will revert to becoming generally available.

What's the communal seating about?

Those who have been to The Violet Hour before may be familiar with our large banquettes in the back room near our fireplace. These banquettes offer communal seating in which parties will be seated in close proximity, sharing the same banquette. While the communal banquettes by nature encourage more socializing, particularly on New Year's Eve, groups of two or three should by no means be discouraged from selecting seats in this area--there is still plenty of opportunity for intimate conversation!

Tickets in this area will be attached to a specific banquette, but not a specific seat within that banquette so early comers will have the first opportunity to select their seats.
