    Vertigo's enviable location offers the perfect perch for New Year's Eve.

    Do you think it turns midnight a few ticks of the clock earlier the higher up you are? Find out at Vertigo Sky Lounge at the Dana Hotel and Spa when it hosts the "Octopussy Penthouse Party" with UrbanDaddy.com from 9PM-2AM on New Year's Eve.

    The James Bond-inspired bash will have the Roger Moore-era "Octopussy" playing on continuous loop in the lounge's "chill room," evoking a certain 1980s decadence as we head into 2009. Vertigo's perch on the hotel's 26th floor overlooks the sparkling city skyline from a glass-enclosed, heated outdoor terrace, where an ice luge will be stationed for housemade shots.

    Indulge in premium cocktails from event sponsors Red Bull, Belvedere vodka and Veuve Clicquot, as well as passed hors d'oeuvres from downstairs restaurant Ajasteak, including mini sliders, yellowtail nigiri and desserts like caramel corn and truffles.

    Tickets will set you back $175 per person; call 312-202-6050 to get yours.
