There is nothing more mysteriously frightening than the unknown. The dreamlike allure of an eerie world full of secrets hidden below entices and excites us. Join ROOF on theWit on October 28 as we transport you 20,000 leagues under the sea – 27 stories above it all. ROOF will transform into a mystic world, home to the most peculiar and mesmerizing Creatures of the Sea.

Dive in to a vibrant, hidden realm bursting with glamour and luxury. Our dazzling deep sea escape will carry you away for the most enchanting of Halloween evenings. Eerie creativity will swirl through the sky-high venue with thematic lighting and special effects filling ROOF with the divine energy of the deep sea.

Top Chicago DJs JaxxSway and KAOS will be spinning the night away starting at 9pm, setting the mood for the dazzling deep sea affair. Mythical mermaids will surround themselves with glow in the dark décor, underwater effects, mouth-watering specialty drinks and tantalizing themed dishes.

Six signature themed cocktails have been hand-crafted by our expert mixologist including the large-format fishbowl, “Swimming with Sharks,” which features Grey Goose, Citrus, Champagne, and Strawberry-Hisbiscus Shark Attack. “The Marina Trench,” with Absolut Elyx, Black Currant- Lavender, Lemon and Champagne will be on the libations menu as well as the “Coral Reef,” with Bacardi Maestro de Ron, Violet Sugar and lemon.

Themed specialty menu items include the “Abyss Paella,” Executive Chef Nathan Sears’ twist on a traditional seafood paella with black rice, squid ink, roasted red peppers and black garlic aioli. A pairing of a fresh Scallop and Crab Cake in a Shell will satisfy your seafood craving, in addition to some regular ROOF fan favorites including Octopus with Braised Herbs, White Beans, Black Lime, Rice and Apples. Other festive treats will be offered, including house made Pumpkin Seed Cracker Jacks, a delicious caramel popcorn mixed with toasted pumpkin seeds, cinnamon, nutmeg and a hint of allspice. Executive Pastry Chef Toni Roberts has also created a Deep Sea Pearl Truffle, served in a golden sea shell.

“This event will display some of our most creative designs and effects yet,” says Beatriz Jara, ROOF Events Manager. “We are totally immersing every inch of the space into a divine underworld – the perfect Halloween escape.”

This year, ROOF will also be giving away an incredible prize to the evening’s winner of the Instagram Halloween Costume Contest. The photo that receives the most likes on ROOF’s Instagram page will win a one-night stay at theWit and two tickets to ROOF’s New Year’s Eve party.
