Here are the parties I know about for New Year’s Eve:
You’ll be all ready for bed if you go to Arno’s pajama party.
Haven’t heard of any special plans out at the Bamboo, but it’s New Year’s Eve there every night, isn’t it? 2 am closing.
Cambridge Street will have a midnight champagne toast, with live music from the Undergraduates, and open bar all for one admission price.
The Chicken Box has DJ Bri Guy and his video dance party, with a champagne toast at midnight (no cover).
At Fifty-Six Union, the theme is “Feather Fun” – top hats and tiara’s a plus. The second seating will include dancing at around 10:30 or 11 pm. Even if you don’t dine there, you’re welcome to come dance after 11. Open until 2 am.
LoLa 41 has two DJ’s, Devlin and Billy Desmond. No cover, 2 am closing. Always lively.
It’s the 2nd annual “Vegas Baby” party at the Rose & Crown, with prizes for the best Elvis costumes. No cover, DJ Mikee, free champagne toast at midnight, costumes not required. 2 am closing.
The Starlight will have New Year’s Eve at Times Square on their big screen. 2 am closing,
It’s a masquerade dinner at Water Street, with masks and party favors, or bring your own.
