Do you have plans for New Year’s Eve? Well now you do: 5 Magazine is giving away 2 pairs of tickets to SmartBar’s NYE blowout.

The Mirror Ball is Wednesday, December 31 and features SmartBar’s troupe of residents including Justin Long (Hugo Ball), Michael Serafini (Queen!/Gramaphone), Jeff Derringer (Oktave), Olin (Slack/We Still Believe) and Harry & Jpeg (Savages/Men’s Room).

SmartBar’s NYE bashes are often a chance to showcase the talented DJs that call the Chicago nightlife mainstay home, giving the event more of a family vibe than you might find in many other venues.

A huge variety of ticket packages (see the full spread below) are available via; for more info visit Facebook event page.

We’ll be giving a pair of tickets away to the first two people to email us at with your NAME and EMAIL ADDRESS. Obviously this contest is limited to those 21 and up.
