Modern musical La La Land may have missed out on winning top honors at the Oscars this year, but Damien Chazelle's tale of romance struck a chord with audiences across the world. To celebrate the film's release on DVD and Blu-ray, a bit of the movie's West Coast charm is making its way to Chicago, in the form of a pop-up La La Land-inspired jazz club.

On April 25, River North jazz club and restaurant Andy's will be transformed into Seb's, the club that Ryan Gosling's character opens at the end of the film. Jazz singer Rose Colella will sing selections from the La La Land soundtrack at 5 and 7pm, and the East Hubbard Jazz Orchestra will entertain late-night crowds with its "City of Stars" program at 9:30 and 11:30pm. Admission to each show is $15.

Guests will have a chance to snap a selfie with a movie-accurate replica of the Seb's neon sign and enter to win copies of the La La Land Blu-ray and soundtrack. Naturally, there will also be a menu of La La Land-inspired cocktails and chicken on a stick.

If you're one of the fools who dream about living our your cinematic Los Angeles fantasies without heading for the coast, you may want to put on your dancing shoes and swing by Andy's next week.
