Party Animal

Release your inner party animal and go forth and fiesta! Start in the mix of it all by watching the ball drop from right in Times Square then head over to Copacabana, a large 3 level nightclub in Midtown, and continue the party. If you would like a decent spot to watch the ball drop, make sure you get there by 3pm or earlier and prepare for a crowd!

Fancy Frolicker

If you got it – spend it! Enjoy an evening with Joe Battaglia and the New York Big Band at the Edison Ballroom. Every ticket includes a four-course meal and the opportunity to practice your best dance skills surrounded by tuxes and gowns in a luxurious Art Deco ballroom. Tickets range from $250 to $350 dollars.

Bar Hopper

Start at MACE located in Alphabet City on 9th Street and travel down Avenue A, B or C stopping in bars along the way. Some of our favorites include: The Wayland, The Summit Bar, Cienfuegos, Drexler’s and Manitoba’s. These are just a few out of dozens of bars located in and around Alphabet City.

Quiet Mouse

Don’t feel like going balls-to-the-wall to ring in the New Year? No problem! At the stroke of midnight fireworks will roar with fiery fury from Central Park’s Naumburg Bandshell. The perfect low-key lightshow surrounded by real New Yorker’s who didn’t escape the concrete jungle for the holidays.
