Time for a much-needed clean slate and a way to celebrate it! Here’s what we’ll be up to when the clock strikes 12:


Ultrabar NYE


As one of the longest running New Year’s Eve parties in DC, this one is bound to be awesome. To begin with, they’ve got an open bar for the first hour of their party. After that, they’ve got 5 floors, 4 DJs/musical experiences, and a great champagne special going for both the bar and VIP tables.

Where: Ultrabar – 911 F Street NW
How much: If you are one of the first 300 smart buyers, your ticket for everything is only $30. If you’re even smarter, you’ll reserve a table in advance and get entry along with a complimentary bottle of champagne to pop at midnight.




Every year Echostage delivers a great show and this year promises to be no different: the #2 in the country mega-club is hosting the amazing DJ duo Krewella for their 2016 New Year’s bash. If you want to ring in 2016 dancing alongside 3,000 of your closest friends, this is the place to do it.

Where: Echostage – 2135 Queens Chapel Road NE
How much: $50 to get into this party and it’s well worth it.


Booze Cruise on the Potomac


Want to keep things a little more low-key, but still awesome? Take an Odyssey Dinner Cruise or hope on the Spirit of Washington and sail along the scenic Potomac River and ring in the new year on the water. Complete with a Platinum open bar, party favors, a champagne toast at midnight, a pre-set crafted dinner menu, and incredible views of the monuments followed by a dock-side party until 1am.

Where: Departs from 600 Water Street SW
How much: A celebration as swanky and upscale as the Odyssey cruise is going to cost you and the slightly more affordable Spirit Cruise will as well, but either way you’ll remember a night like this forever.


Georgetown Waterfront


Want to stay on solid ground but don’t want to miss the views that come with a cruise? No worries! The Georgetown Waterfront is alight with celebration on New Year’s Eve. Restaurants and bars along the river band together to offer great packages filled with dining, drinks, and celebration all night long.

Where: Just head to the Harbour, everything is centralized around it.
How much: Depends where you go and what exactly you want to do, but here’s a good jumping off point.


Crawl Til the Ball Falls


There’s nothing like a good old fashioned bar crawl (and one with a name like like this HAS to be a fun). Dupont has a pretty solid set of bars and clubs, no matter who participates this’ll be a great time.

Where: Dupont Circle
How much: There haven’t been any solid plans announced yet, but the Eventbrite is up and active with more information. Check back for updates on location and registration timing. Odds are when tickets go on sale they’ll be gone pretty quickly.


NYE Masquerade Ball


The W is known for it’s high class and high-up views – their POV rooftop bar has the best views of the city and now one of the coolest parties you can attend for New Year’s. Watch the DC skyline light up as the year rolls over with hand crafted cocktails and a cool atmosphere.

Where: The W Hotel – 515 15th Street NW
How much: Tickets start at $75 for general admission, but if you want to enjoy some great food beforehand they have an offer that includes entry plus a 4-course meal at the ultra-hip Pinea  for $135.


NYE Burlesque Ball


Manor is another swanky spot to enjoy your New Year’s Eve. It’s the best if you want to watch the streets erupt in celebration – the floor-to-ceiling windows in this lofted lounge have a great view of Connecticut Ave.

Where: The Manor DC – 1327 Connecticut Ave NW
How much: Tickets are only $35 for the early birds, but the price goes up the closer to the event you try to buy tickets. The hot setup: find a friend and buy a couples ticket, you get a pretty good discount by doing it that way.


Duffy’s NYE

Are trendy lounges, booming clubs, or champagne toasts not your thing?  Have no fear, Duffy’s is here. With an open bar all night, free appetizers from 9-11, and party that requires no fancy attire (not to mention the special Jameson toast at midnight): this is definitely the place for you.  Image courtesy of

Where: Duffy’s Irish Pub – 2106 Vermont Ave NW
How much: Get your tickets now and they’ll only be $45, wait until after the 15th and they go up a whopping $15 a pop.



Start making those plans now – the sooner you do, the better.
