Gala Evening Features Cocktails in Historic Bridgeview Bank Rotunda, Exclusive Tours of Uptown Theatre Lobby, Dinner at Authentic Local Favorites
Get an insider’s view of Chicago’s most entertaining neighborhood with an exclusive evening showcasing the grand architecture of Uptown’s entertainment district and the foodie haven of Argyle Street.
On October 26, gather for cocktails and light appetizers in the historic restored Bridgeview Bank rotunda – you might catch your Uptown alderman or State Rep pulling a shift as a celebrity bartender. During cocktails, local historians will lead exclusive tours of the magnificent Uptown Theatre lobby, normally closed to the public. Try your luck on our raffle as well: prizes include coveted reserved seats at the renowned Green Mill jazz club’s holiday show. For dinner, guests will dine in small groups on house specialties at a choice of local Argyle Street favorites, including Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese and Indian options.
Tickets are $100 per person, or $500 for a group of six and includes cocktails, Theater tour and dinner; sponsorship opportunities are also available. All proceeds will benefit Uptown United, Uptown’s community economic development organization, and Business Partners, Uptown’s Chamber of Commerce.
