River North has a new club where drinkers can party most nights until 4 a.m. (until 5 a.m. on Sunday), as LiqrBox brings a playful attitude and boozy adult juice boxes to the neighborhood. The three-level, 7,500-square-foot club opens on Sunday, New Year’s Eve at 873 N. Orleans Street at the former Stone Lotus nightclub site.

A trio of local artists, Jacob Wayne, David Bozic, and Fidel Rodriguez contributed work, creating a unique space that’s distinctively Chicagoan. The drinks are whimsical. There’s beverages that come out of gas station-inspired dispensers and slot machines. They’ll also serve food including amped-up pizza puffs.

Co-owner Matt Deichl has been a busy man over the last few weeks. He was part of the group that opened Bounce Sporting Club. LiqrBox falls under different ownership BDG Hospitality Group includes partners James Brown and Jonathan Gillespie.
