Andy’s Jazz Club in River North is going to play dress up next week—as a club from a 2017 Golden Globe Award winner. Andy’s will masquerade on Tuesday, April 25 as the fictional club featured in Oscar-nominated La La Land. The costume will include a full-sized Seb’s neon sign, live music and themed drinks, according to EW.
The promotion is in conjunction with the movie’s DVD and digital release. Actor Ryan Gosling plays Sebastian in the movie, a musician with dreams of opening his own club. Other cities, including Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and San Francisco are also taking part in the gimmick.
Admission is $15, and Andy’s will host two all-ages shows (5 p.m. and 7 p.m.) featuring Rose Colella playing songs from the movie soundtrack. The East Hubbard Jazz Orchestra will perform at 9:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., but those shows are for the 21+ crowd.
These Hollywood promotions aren’t anything new. Coffee shops across America’s transformed into Luke’s Diner to mark the debut of the new Gilmore Girls episodes on Netflix. For some reason, the makers of Wayne’s World snubbed Aurora (Excellent!) and brought back former Blackhawk legend’s Stan Mikita’s Donuts to L.A. to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Mike Myers’ and Dana Carvey’s comedy movie icon. Though it’s not part of a promotion, Saved By The Max has brought Saved By The Bell’s spirit to Wicker Park as part of an extended pop-up.
