Five Fresh Ideas for NYE

Still deciding how to spend your last night of 2013?  Here are five of our best bets (see the calendar for more fun festivities)!


Jose Andres’ BarMini is one of the best places to be for creative bartending as the ball drops.  Attendees will experience a progression of elixirs created by cocktail innovator (and Eater’s National Bartender of the Year!) Juan Coronado.  $275, reservations here.

Messy & Memorable:

ArtJamz brings back its sketchy soiree — GlitterBall!  Party participants will each have a canvas to make art in action… or their own imaginative resolution.  Prices vary, info here.

Legends (of the Fur):

Sure, Kabin Nightclub’s party sounds like your regular NYE nightout, complete with bar service and dancing.  But those that spend $1500 on a table not only get Top 40 mash-ups and cocktails at an alpine inspired lounge…. they’ll have their bottles delivered by Big Foot.  $75 – $1500, info here.


You bet your bikini they’ll be there (and get your mind out of the gutter!) at Malmaison as the typically French restaurant/music house goes below the equator for 2014’s NYE excitement. Open bar 9-1. $125, info here.

Glow for It:

One part stage show, the other a night of glow.  It’s all theatrical when Woolley Mammoth invites the stand-up/sketch comedy/improv mash-up comedic duo The Pajama Men to perform their latest before heading into an open bar “Glow in the Dark” gala. $100+, info here.
