Where to Celebrate NYE in NYC

It’s almost time to ring in the new year! If you’ll be in the big apple for new years eve and are looking for a new year’s eve celebration, there are plenty of tickets left at some of the best places in the city. There are certain things people want in a NYE celebration like the best view for the ball drop, a dance floor, live dj or live performances, a dance party, party favors, signature cocktails and more! It’s not easy to find a free event, so I’ve found happenings at all prices to ring in the next year. The famous ball drop is coming at the stroke of midnight and here are some amazing new year’s eve parties to check out this weekend!

Atlas Yacht

This is actually a family friendly dinner cruise, so it’s one of the few places you could bring the whole family to. The night features an open bar, amazing views of New York City, especially near the Statue of Liberty. What better way to ring in the year than on a boat cruise? It is black tie optional and tickets are still on sale. As one of the pricier events, you will want to take note of the gala wear and ticket prices, but it will definitely be a night to remember!

This is actually a historic landmark event space in the city! Located underneath the 59th Street bridge, this spot is a work of art! There will be a 5 hour open bar and light appetizers, so definitely eat dinner beforehand, but know that there will be bites to nibble on. Tickets start at $119 and you’ll want to grab them quickly because they are going fast!

Edison Rooftop

Let’s start with the rooftops! Edison has a historic art deco vibe and truthfully, the vibes are all there! Located on the ballroom and penthouses levels of this Times Square rooftop, this is one of the best family-friendly options for the night! Did I mention that the penthouse level was once Lenny Kravitz’s recording studio? How cool!

This will be their first annual NYE party and they are excited to have you! With an open bar and appetizer bites to enjoy, consider this venue to kick off the new year!

DL Rooftop

Talk about a big party, there are 800 spots for this one! Obviously, there will be an open bar and amazing dj, but there is one big thing that makes this rooftop party stand out and that is food! There will be options, and a lot of other spots don’t have that, so keep that in mind when looking into getting tickets! The chandeliers and velvet furniture make this lounge incredibly sexy!

Harbor Rooftop

Looking for rooftop bars to be at when the crystal ball drops? Harbor is having one of the best dj sets and open bar options in town! It’s going to be a huge party and tickets start around $175, but it’ll be one that is well worth it! With Hudson River views and table service, how could you miss this one?!

Clinton Hall

If you haven’t been to Clinton Hall, you’re missing out! It’s a good time, always! They describe themselves as a beer garden that meets an adult playground and I’d have to agree! With a dj and tons of tvs around their midtown location, you will not miss that midnight run! They have delicious American appetizers and a standard open bar. For under $90, you can’t beat these ticket prices!
