NOIR an Evening of Mystery and Mayhem


Surround yourself in a sultry atmosphere of Agent Provocateurs and Femmes Fatales all the while imbibing in food and drink that will make you feel like the owner of the Maltese Falcon.

For the Love of Chocolate always throws a great party but this one will be a real killer!


Join us at the Union League Club of Chicago (65 W. Jackson, Chicago IL 60604) on February 25th, 2017.


The Spectacle starts early this year with our VIP Guests arriving at 6:00 PM to host a private party prior to the doors opening to all of our guests.

The Mayhem begins for all at 7:30 PM and continues until midnight.


Be ready to take part as a famous FILM NOIR character like Sam Spade, Philipp Marlowe, Norma Desmond, or Veda Pierce. You will need to look the part! Wondering what to wear? Black, White and Red only! Ladies, it’s time for a new slinky black number with seemed stockings or a bold red dress.  For you fellas, pull out your fedora and trench coat, and keep those brass knuckles in the top coat pocket at the ready.


Guests will be enjoying four floors of entertainment featuring DJ’s, a Big Band, a sultry Jazz singer, variety acts and dance troupes everywhere! 100 different presentation stations with gourmet food, premium bars, pastry, cookies, cake, macarons, ice cream and chocolate on all floors. Two theatrical sets for our guests to become part of the theater, imagine yourself as Sam Spade in a little fun skit while hunting down the very next gourmet truffle.
