Katana New Years Eve Event Description

EVENT CANCELLED: Moving customers to Blind Dragon | 613 N Wells St

Spend this New Year’s Eve at Chicago’s sultriest Asian hotspot, Katana, and experience the party of the year.  The happening River North neighborhood is flooded with Chicago’s most popular restaurants, galleries, shops, and lounges and Katana is at the center of it all.  Nightlife giants, the Innovative Dining Group, are responsible for this new gem, and this New Year’s Eve we’ll take it to the next level with an all-out NYE extravaganza.

A live DJ will welcome you into this grand minimalistic masterpiece with the year’s best hits from Top 40, house, and hip hop music.  There’s no shortage of space in this sleek Japanese wonder and when you’re not dancing on the expansive wood floor, you’ll be sipping cocktails by candlelight at the five hour premium open bar.  IDG describes the Chi-Town hotspot as serving “imaginative Japanese cuisine in a seductive setting,” and you’ll be enjoying appetizers from the much-praised executive chef, Jose Melendez, made in an open kitchen.  Katana’s bi-level interior with high architectural ceilings makes for the perfect contemporary party house this New Year’s Eve.  The impressive space will light up as the DJ counts the crowd down to midnight and glasses of complimentary champagne clink in celebration of the 365 days ahead.  If you’re coming with a crew, snag a VIP package for perks like reserved seating on furnishings handmade and customized for the space and add bottle service to the list of luxuries you’ll be soaking up this New Year’s Eve.

This metal-and-wood-clad nitery should come off as industrial, but instead there is something wildly zen about the interior that makes the experience all the more immersive when it lights up for a party of this caliber.  Lee Maen, a founding partner at IDG, describes the lounge as having a “heartbeat” with electric vibes that can be felt the second you enter.  Enjoy a glittering night next to muraled walls surrounded by clean lines and duo-chromatic accents with pops of scarlet.  Dance past a large, crimson-lined circular window looking out into the night and mingle under wooden beams that hang in a thatched pattern above.

There’s no doubt the barely-a-year-old Katana is lighting up the Chi-Town nightlife scene.  IDG’s roaring success will bring out Chicago’s finest for a bash that will go well into the morning and be talked about for months afterward.  Grab a ticket to River North’s brightest night ever this New Year’s Eve.
