New Year’s Eve is just around the corner, and the approaching holiday is a special one. We’re gearing up for a new decade! If you’re still in search of some holiday plans, we’re highlighting a few happenings in New York City that partygoers should be sure not to miss.
Downtown at PUBLIC Hotel, locals and visitors alike will reel in the night in style. Spread across each floor of the hotel are separate parties for those interested in music, food, and unmatchable city views—all reserved online, with a complementary four-hour open bar, passed bites by famed chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and a champagne toast at midnight. Upstairs at The Roof, though, guests can enjoy tunes by DJ Prince Terrence, and unobstructed views of the festive fireworks. At Diego, guests can enjoy a pop-up by Mexico City’s famous Licoreria Limantour, featuring world-class one-of-a-kind cocktails. Downstairs at PUBLIC Arts, a disco night of dancing will take place, with DJed music by Stretch Armstrong and Blu Detiger. And down at PUBLIC Kitchen, for the foodies in the building, a four-course Prix-Fixe menu (of course topped with a midnight champagne toast) by Vongerichten is available by reservation only.
The Wythe Hotel is also hosting an event within its Brooklyn space—a DJ set at its rooftop bar, Lemon’s, by Nelleke. The disco-themed party will greet guests to a lively atmosphere and a champagne toast to ring in the new year. Also happening at its newest restaurant, Le Crocodile, is a special New Year’s Eve dinner menu available by reservation—complete with treats on the list like caviar, orzo with black truffle, escargot, steak, fish, and delectable desserts.
And Uptown at Tao, cava company Freixenet is hosting a special celebration with celebrity guest Andy Cohen. The private evening will be located on the mezzanine, welcoming special guests to an open bar (featuring Freixenet’s iconic Cordon Negro Brut Cava and specialty cava cocktails), passed hors d’oeuvres, sushi, desserts, and stunning city views. Cohen will be hosting CNN’s “New Year’s Eve Live” in Times Square, so after the iconic disco ball drop there, he will be in attendance to host a unique meet-and-greet to welcome in 2020.
