We know there are a lot of New Year’s Eve options. It can feel daunting to choose something to do. So, we’ve picked some of our favorite NYE parties for you to check out. Whether you want to dance the night away, laugh the night away, or snack the night away, we’ve got you covered.



We’re here to utter two beautiful words to you: no cover. That’s right, head over to Slipstream’s New Year’s Eve “Warm Up” from 5:00 pm-10:00 pm on NYE for $20.17 for unlimited champagne and coffee.

Woolly Mammoth Theatre


What better way to ring in 2017 than with the cast of The Second City at Woolly Mammoth? Enjoy a special 9:30 pm performance of The Black Side of the Moon followed by an open bar, delicious treats, music by DJ Q, and of course a champagne toast to ring in the New Year. Did we mention there will be some awesome disposable cameras provided by yours truly for you to snap pics of every joyous moment? Tickets start at $110 so make sure to get them here.

The Gibson


The Gibson is at it again with an awesome NYE theme party we can all get behind: The Future. They’ll be drawing inspiration from visions of the future we came up with in the past, represented in films such as Idiocracy,, A Clockwork Orange, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Total Recall, The Fifth Element, Wall-E, Back to the Future and more. Come dressed to impress in your finest “Futuristic” style, and enjoy the open bar, performances by burlesque superstar Reverand Valentine,  and of course a futuristic photo booth. Get tickets here.

Espita Mezcaleria


Get ready for the Mexican Cantina experience with an open bar, delicious snacks, and, of course, a DJ at 10:00 pm. Tickets are $100 per person or you can mix and match with their six-course dinner. Get your tickets here.



Raspberry Point Oysters and Day Boat Scallops? Yes please! Head over to the Navy Yard and hang with Whaley’s for a special New Year’s Eve Ball Drop and champagne toast. Get à la carte seafood towers and drinks all night at the bar. Make a reservation here.

Roofers Union


If you’re the craft beer type, this is the New Year’s Eve party for you. DC Brau and Port City will be taking over the taps at Roofers Union in Adams Morgan. There will be music by Johnny Grave and the Tombstones and many NYE party favors strewn about all over the Roofers Union, including on the heated rooftop. Tickets are $90 and you can get them here.
