Wasteland Paradise: Presented by Fords Gin and Pisco Control


  • East Room 2354 North Milwaukee Avenue Chicago, IL, 60647 United States (map)

Wasteland Paradise in Chicago is the first in a global series of parties that stands for a few simple things: #goodvibesonly, unity, and inclusion. Created by Kelsey Ramage and Iain Griffiths of The Trash Collective, the event will embrace a save-the-environment attitude with everything from the cocktails to the decor — even the glitter (yes, really) — has been vetted for guests to be a joyful part of the revolution.

Wasteland Paradise brings together the best of Chicago’s nightlife for one night only on Wednesday, May 9th from 10 pm to 2 am at the East Room. The night will feature bartenders from Chicago's best bars, who will join The Trash Collective to craft anti-waste drinks featuring Fords Gin and Pisco Control while a DJ and live entertainment keep guests moving on the dance floor.

$5 tickets will be sold at the door with trashy cocktails just $5 all night long. Cover charge may also be paid via an equal donation of menstrual hygiene products to the Chicago Period Project. In other words, pack some pads or tampons for menstruating Chicagoans in need.

Please Note: All Wasteland Paradise parties operate with a safe space policy that includes gender neutral bathrooms. Anyone seen to be making others feel like less than their fabulous selves will be immediately removed. Don't be a jerk

And don't forget: Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance. We'll see YOU on the dance floor!
