Dec 09 Best Parties to Ring in 2020
Not only are we heading into a new year, but we are also welcoming a new decade! So expect this year’s New Year’s Eve parties to be epic!
If you’re looking for the absolute best places to don your 2020 glasses, we’ve got you covered from coast to coast. It won’t surprise you that the big cities make our Top 5 list, but we snuck in a few parties that may surprise and delight you!
NYC for NYE
New York City is a classic and still home to the world-famous ball drop and one of the world’s largest parties in Times Square. Streets are closed, concerts and events are everywhere, and millions join in the fun. But if you’d rather celebrate the 20s away from the chaos, channel your inner flapper and bootlegger with a Speakeasy celebration at Club Bonafide.
If NYC sounds too cold for your party plans, head west to sunny California and Hollywood Boulevard. The famous Hollywood Roosevelt is bringing in eight of the best DJs during the six hours of open bar to ring in the new year! Just be sure you can pull yourself out of bed the next morning for LA’s time-honored Tournament of Roses Parade!
If you think New Orleans is just for Mardi Gras, think again. See “Baby New Year” drop from his perch as the clock strikes midnight, followed by fireworks over the great Mississippi. Naturally, Bourbon Street and the French Quarter will host parties that spill into the streets until morning. And if you’re a college football fan, you might want to at least grab a nap before heading off to the Sugar Bowl. And don’t forget to have your black-eyed peas for good luck!!
If you’re spending the holidays in the Midwest, you’re probably okay with the cold, so Chicago might be the perfect spot to start the new decade. How do 30 bars offering unlimited drinks and delicious food sound to you?? Thought so! You are going to love Chicago’s 8th Annual Resolution Gala at Navy Pier! Mingling, dancing, eating, and fireworks – what more could you ask for?!
The city that truly never sleeps turns the strip into one major block party for more than 300,000 people! Parties, concerts, and shows turn up the volume, and the evening culminates in choreographed fireworks. If you want THE best view of the spectacular, head to the skies for champagne in your chartered helicopter!
Don’t be the guy who passed out before the new year! Be sure to stay hydrated, eat some real food, and grab your Monkey Stuff in order to make sure you can party until the fireworks begin!
