A New Year's Nosh 

Finish the year with a fantastic meal. Stay close to the Famously Hot New Year action and snag a ticket for Bourbon’s New Year’s Eve Party, Lula Drake’s New Year’s Eve Party, New Year’s Eve at The Oak Table or Cantina 76’s Main Street New Year’s Eve Bash. Just a hop, skip and a jump away in the Vista, crack into some champagne and oysters at New Year’s Eve at Pearlz. Dig in to six delicious courses (all paired with wine, of course) at New Year’s Eve @116. Book a reservation for a quiet night on Devine Street and enjoy a three course meal at the New Year’s Eve Dinner at Tallulah. A buffet, balloons and bubbly all await you at New Year’s Eve at 1616 Gervais.

Live It Up

Live it up with the one you love. It’s pretty much all fun and games at the Grand New Year’s Eve Bash and Adult New Year’s Eve at Dave and Buster’s. Don your best from decades past at New Year’s Eve Party Thru the Decades at Chayz Lounge or keep the mystery alive at the 7th Annual New Year’s Eve Masquerade Party at The Woody. Finally, hit the dance floor at the Happy New Year’s Party at Social Bar and Lounge.
