New York City nightlife is an experience like no other, especially on New Year’s Eve. Dance 2022 away at any of these incredible parties this December 31st.
Gatsby’s Yacht Party
No fictional character has ever done parties better than Jay Gatsby, the Prohibition-era host with the most. Channel his spirit this New Year’s Eve with a party aboard ‘Gatsby’s Yacht,’ an extravagant celebration on the waters of New York City harbor. This three-deck ship has over 30,000 square feet of gorgeous Art Deco interior, and partiers will be serenaded by the Brooklyn Duo and various live DJs. The party also includes an open bar, a 4-course dinner buffet, and—drumroll please—an unparalleled view of the NYC harbor fireworks show.
Cipriani New Year’s Eve Party
Cipriani 42nd Street, one of New York City’s most iconic restaurants, is throwing a luxurious soirée to ring in 2023. Guests can enjoy the restaurant’s complimentary hors d’oeuvres, Prosecco, and a premium open bar. Live DJs will play for the crowd swirling around on the floor of the Grand Ballroom, and everyone will bask in the opulence of the event as they count down to midnight. Get tickets here.
Bathtub Gin New Year’s Eve
The 2020s can be just as fun as the 1920s—just head to Bathtub Gin, the coolest speakeasy in New York City. Guests will be partying the night away in this sensual, retro locale, home to burlesque performances and bottle service, hors d’oeuvres, and craft cocktails. Get a taste of the illicit nightlife of the 1920s with a New Year’s Eve spent in the nostalgic atmosphere of Bathtub Gin.
Top of the Tower at Ophelia
Billed as New York City’s premier rooftop cocktail lounge, Ophelia is the place to go for a sophisticated night of revelry. This elegant bar, located at the top of the Art Deco Beekman tower, offers sweeping views of the city skyline and the East River. They’ll even be hosting two celebrations: a sunset soirée, beginning at 5pm, and a late night bash, going from 9pm to 2am. Sip champagne from the top of the world before heading off to another party—reserve a spot here.
Rosie O’Grady’s Times Square Celebration
A more family-friendly New Year’s Eve option awaits at Rosie O’Grady’s, a steak & seafood house right by Times Square. This time-honored landmark restaurant is serving a tantalizing menu that includes crab cakes, beef filet, and white chocolate mousse, and guests of all ages are invited to take part. The restaurant’s multiple floors offer various experiences: a lower level pub with the energy of a nightclub, a dining room overlooking 52nd street, and VIP dinner and dancing in the upper-level Manhattan Club and Skylight Room. Reserve your seat here to enjoy dinner and drinks before watching the ball drop.
New Year’s Eve at 230 Fifth
Premium alcohol, rooftop views, and an indoor-outdoor experience await at 230 Fifth, one of the city’s best live music, restaurant, and bar venues.
