With another year coming to a close, what better way to spend it than a night out in LA on New Year’s Eve. Here are some of the events you can attend during this New Year’s Eve in LA:


1. Hollywood NYE Block Party



Las Palmas, Supper Club, the Rusty Mullet, and L’Scorpion are collaborating, once again, to throw an all out party in Hollywood. A ticket to the block party allows access to all four venues with open bars. Each place has a distinct feel and flavor to them, so if one doesn’t suit your mood, you can move on to the next one. You can start at the Rusty Mullet or L’Scorpion to ease your night into dancing or dance first and end the night in a relaxed environment. Whatever you choose, all four venues will serve complimentary champagne for a midnight toast. If you’re interested in meeting some new people, this is definitely a great way to spend your New Year’s Eve.


2. Aboard the Queen Mary New Year’s Eve Celebration: Passport to a New Year



One of the longest running New Year’s Eve celebrations in LA, the Queen Mary, is a great way to spend your night over the water looking up at the sky lit up with fireworks. This year’s theme takes passengers to different parts of the world, “landing” in different ports. Each port will feature a different cocktail that is prominent from the location. There’s also dining and New Year’s Day brunch available on the ship if you’re also looking to feast while on your cruise. Buy tickets quickly because the Queen Mary is a sold out event every year.


3. Lost in Space at Avalon



If you’re really looking for a great dance club, Avalon might have the event for you. The club is always noted for its good music, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. Sultan + Ned Shepard will be playing and Fedde Le Grand will be headlining the night. Avalon is consistently listed as one of the top clubs with the best DJs. Don’t worry about what time the club closes because it’s the only place that closes at 8AM. Act quickly though. Only half the tickets are sold beforehand, while the rest are sold the night of.


4. The New Year’s Ball at the Edison



Looking for a classy way to spend your New Year’s Eve? Take a trip back in time at the Edison in cabaret fashion. The historic Edison will be throwing a cabaret ball. Be ready to dress to impress, as the Edison is known for their well-dressed guests, and New Year’s Eve is no exception. For the cabaret ball, classic elegance and style are required. There will be live music and a show, including a midnight toast.


5. New Year’s Eve LA at Grand Park



Maybe you’re not into clubbing or going to bars and lounges. Maybe you’re just looking to enjoy your New Year’s Eve with the people close to you, at a low cost. Grand Park will be having a free event with live photo booths, art installations and live music. Best of all, the countdown will be shown on a 3D projection on City Hall. There will be food trucks located throughout the park and a cash bar on the performance lawn. This event is open to all ages.

Wherever you spend your New Year’s Eve in LA, you can be sure that it won’t disappoint.

Have a safe and fun New Year’s Eve!
