Celebrate from Home
Usually we'd be gearing up for a big party on Main Street to bring in the New Year. In previous years the free Famously Hot New Year (FHNY) celebration has brought in talent from Trombone Shorty and Sister Hazel to Elle King and Salt-N-Peppa. This year, experience the fun from the comfort of your home with special guests throughout the night, including performances by Hootie & the Blowfish and Arrested Development. You can even get a free FHNY party pack to make your at-home experience extra special. Visit their website for party pack pickup locations and info on how to tune into the livestream.
Celebrate Out and About (Socially-Distanced)
2021 NYE Party at The Joint at 1710: Catch Amos Hoffman and Robert Gardiner at The Joint while enjoying your choice of an entree, cocktail and champagne toast. VIP and party packages are available but space is limited!
Market on Main's New Year's Eve Celebration: Watch the ball drop on the patio big screen and listen to the smooth sounds of Mark Rapp over a three course meal. We recommend making reservations and dressing warm for this popular spot.
A Jazzy Soul New Year's Eve Affair at Chayz Lounge: Featuring the groovy sounds of H. Wade Johnson & Pride Ensemble + songstress Beth Inabinett, this intimate party (read: limited capacity) will have you on your feet dancing in the first few minutes.
Farewell 2020 Party at The Grand & Main Course: Pay one price to access both restaurants, which are conveniently across the street from one another. Limited tickets available which includes a champagne toast, two drink tickets and one hour in a bowling lane or virtual gaming bay.
A Night to Remember, A Year to Forget at Tin Roof: Looking for a primarily open-air experience? The live music block (covering Tin Roof, The Senate and their shared outdoor space) will be rocking once again with table packages, three bars and two bands. One price will cover your entry into the space where you can catch The Barons at The Senate or Seventy Six and Sunny at Tin Roof.
A Rio Style New Year's Eve at The Woody: Check out the new location of one of Columbia's most iconic nightclubs for NYE. The Woody has moved to Main Street and with two floors and an outdoor patio, there's plenty of room for a socially-distanced good time.
New Year's Eve at Ratio: Ring in the new year at one of Columbia's hottest new restaurants. Featuring a special meal by Chef Javier and a champagne tasting throughout the night, this is a date night (or girls' night) you won't want to miss.
