Here are five ways to welcome 2017 in style.
1. Party like it’s 1927.
For a classy New Years Eve, make a reservation at The Speakeasy, San Francisco’s immersive theatrical experience that transports you to the sumptuous world of the 1920s. Enjoy cocktails, live music, and dancing as you ring in the New Year in style. Period attire is encouraged!
2. Enjoy a night of improv comedy.
Need a good laugh to get you through the end of 2016? BATS Improv is here to entertain you. Head to Not Quite New Year’s: Praise or Punishment for an evening of friendly competition as BATS company members battle it out to bring their comedy visions to life. It’s on December 30 (hence “Not Quite New Year’s”), which gives you an excuse to spend actual New Year’s Eve at home with a nice glass of wine.
3. Sing along with two theater icons.
Can’t wait for Season 3 of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? Head to San Francisco Symphony, where Tituss Burgess and Jane Krakowski are headlining a very special New Year’s Eve concert. Expect a wide variety of songs from both of their theatrical careers, plus charming duets and plenty of silly antics!
4. Enter a fairytale-themed world.
Calling all dreamers: Take a trip to IMAGINE, a New Year’s Eve Fairytale Gala at Payne Mansion, where you can travel between 11 themed rooms to encounter fairies, mermaids, contortionists, and more. You’ll enjoy delicious cocktails and treats in places like “The Enchanted Forrest” and “The Dragon’s Lair.” Just don’t get lost in “The Catacombs of Doom.”
5. Embrace your inner Don Draper.
Pour one out for 2016 in true Mad Men fashion at Barbarossa Lounge. Featuring handcrafted cocktails, a live DJ, and plenty of surprise goodies, this party is a decidedly stylish way to welcome 2017 (and the perfect excuse to break out your best vintage outfit).
