Uptown Underground hosts a special two-hour New Year's Eve performance in the hours leading up to midnight on two separate stages. Performers include The Kiss Kiss Cabaret, Chicago Magic Lounge, Muffy Fishbasket, SpeakUNeasy, Boy Toy's Pocket Cabaret and other special guests. Guests will enter on the red carpet before being treated to a complementary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres hour. The countdown to midnight will be celebrated with a champagne toast. An after-party features jazz crooner Erin McDougald. In keeping with the 1920s to 40s motifs, patrons are encouraged to dress in period-appropriate attire.
