New Year’s Eve in New York City: 5 parties suggestions

Many people choose to come to New York in the period between Christmas and New Year. I agree that Christmas here is good – the cold weather, the memories from movies, the beautiful decor that takes city and not, not by snow, because it is very difficult snowing here on Christmas Eve. But New Year’s Eve here? Hmmmm, in this regard, I think that Brazil gives a show. What could be better than being able to go outside, watch the fireworks, enjoy a summer night?

Hahaha, ok. New Year here is quite different. First, forget Times Square and the famous ball – unless you want to stay there 10 hours waiting to midnight, with a lot people and freezing weather. There are some fireworks, for example, in Central Park, but it’s very fast and everyone leaves soon, because of the freezing temperature. The most common thing in the city for New Year’s Eve are closed parties. There are many, many options. It is difficult to choose one, but I made this list based on the reputation of the places, the price of tickets and what I particularly liked.

Time: 8pm to 3am
Tickets: from $ 89
Bryant Park Grill, a nice restaurant that is located at Bryant Park, always promotes its New Year’s party and guarantees a special and elegant evening. All tickets include open bar all night – and has some other perks such as VIP area. It also has free buffet. The party is animated by a DJ that plays rock, hip-hop and ’80s music – yes, there is a dance floor. Obviously, there is the countdown at midnight with a complimentary glass of champagne. Keep an eye out, because after 12:30 the ticket drops to $ 49 with all the benefits of General Admission.

Tao is one of the most famous restaurants in New York. With beautiful decor and Asian food, it is always crowded. I bet the New Year’s eve will no be different.

Many New Year’s celebrations in New York only allow 21+ age people. In Chevy’s, everyone is welcome, which is good, for example, for those on a family trip.

There is a free buffet and open bar – over 21.
