The Best New Years Eve Parties in NYC


New Years Eve is one of those epic nights that normally turns out anything but.  You make last minute plans, tickets are sold out, or you get stuck in a cab who decided going even kinda close to Times Square was a good idea right now.  We’re tired of New Years that don’t live up to the expectations, so we’ve found you 9 parties that are guaranteed to be the night of your life.  Each spot is complete with open bars and skyline views, plus you can watch the ball drop while sipping champagne at a swanky bar instead of surrounded by strange folks in adult diapers.  Here are the 9 parties we recommend this New Years Eve in NYC.

NYE 2015 at Gansevoort Hotel Meat Packing District

The Gansevoort is known for being a great upscale party scene year-round, New Years Eve will be no exception.  Enjoy a 5 hour open bar, a complimentary champagne toast at midnight, live streaming of the Times Square ball drop, and a scenic rooftop view.

NYE 2015 at Level R (Empire Hotel Rooftop)

New-Years-Eve-Level R_NYE

Level R is always a good time.  They have two amazing outdoor rooftop patios, both offering picturesque panoramic views.  The open bar is running for 5 hours, and we can only assume the venue will be packed with beautiful people.  And if you were a Gossip Girl fan, this is Chuck Bass’ hotel, so you should feel free to summon your inner rambunctious youthful millionaire.  And with an open bar that is easier than it sounds.

NYE 2015 at Yotel


Keeping on theme with the pack, Yotel has a 5 hour premium open bar, complimentary champagne, and live streaming of your favorite thing to watch and least favorite place to be, the Times Square Ball Drop.  I’ve never partied at the Yotel rooftop, but judging by the photo below it is definitely a view worth showing up for.

NYE 2015 at Studio in the W Hotel Union Square


Rarely is the W one of your least expensive options for the evening, but this just so happens to be the case.  With tickets starting at $20 and a one hour open vodka bar from 9-10, this may be the cheapest, and trendiest New Years Eve you’ve ever had.  That’s a combination we can get behind.

New Years Eve at Hotel on Rivington Penthouse

Rated #1 Panoramic City View

new-years-eve-Rivington Hotel_2014_12-31_NYE (1)8

The last one on our list may just be our favorite in the bunch.  With the best panoramic views of the city, and a 5 hour open bar, this is how you truly bring in the new year in style.  Plus, you’ll be on the Lower East Side and can escape the craziness of Midtown on New Years, which is the best possible way to celebrate.
