We pull out all the stops this New Years Eve with our hotspots in and around the metropolis: Haven Rooftop, The Paper Factory Hotel, The Box, Resorts World Casino, Southampton Inn and Stand Up New York.
Ring in the New Year near Times Square but safely away from all that madness. The Haven Rooftop located inside The Sanctuary Hotel celebrates the new year with a party that is just steps away from the ball drop. All guests can see the confetti canons go off at midnight along with the thousands of revelers nearby. But unlike standing in Times Square, Haven is heated & tented along with 2 bars and delicious cuisine. Options included General Admission ($175++ per person) or a Table with Bottle Service for the night ($250++ per person). Both options include a four-hour top shelf open bar and passed hors d’oeuvres.
Disco lives! Resorts World Casino New York City will host the New Year’s Eve Celebration on Saturday, December 31st beginning at 11:30 a.m. Resorts World New York’s Official New Year’s Celebration will begin at 9 p.m. at Bar 360.
This year’s theme is how to celebrate the New Year internationally. Starting at 11:30 a.m., Resorts World will feature free performances throughout the casino themed to China, India, Russia and Italy with specialized party favors at each event.* Bar 360 will have a specialty drink prepared for each country. Special acts include classical pianist Vivian Liu, Angels Caribbean Band & Dancers, Bollywood Drums, the Do Do Orchestra, and Alfio.
