Help for NYE fun, hip spot, but not pretentious? Purple Haze?

A group of old friends is meeting in Chicago for NYE and we're looking for somewhere awesome to be (who isn't?). We wouldn't mind live music, or at least a DJ playing danceable stuff (easy on the Top 40, though, we like a little more variety). We're not trying to "see and be seen" but just have fun. Dancing is good, beer is better. Oh, and we're in our mid-20s, young professionals and grad students. A mix of guys and girls.

I read that Risque Cafe and Purple Haze are decent, fun places. Would they be fun for NYE? Are the bars there big enough?
