It’s going to be a memorable party at Ascent Lounge New York, which is hosting the “Va Va Voom Experience.” DJ Tom Macari will be spinning, performers like burlesque dancer Lady Alchemy will be keeping the crowd entertained, and the drinks will be flowing all night. Tickets range from $150 per person to $750 per couple for reserved VIP tables and bottle service.
Landmarc chef Marc Murphy is also getting in on the action with a pop-up, HallMarc at Time Warner Center, with gorgeous views overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park. There will be live music from DJ Rosé and a photo booth to commemorate the last night of 2016. And you won’t go away hungry or thirsty, with plenty of hors d’oeuvres, an open bar, and even late-night snacks. Tickets start at $195 per person.

At Center Bar, look for a sophisticated scene. A pianist will be playing throughout the evening as revelers sip cocktails like the #NextBigThing (made with rum, simple syrup, lemon, orange, and walnut and orange bitters) and nibble on treats like the foie-gras parfait (made with cognac). There’s no cover charge, but there’s a two-drink minimum from 8 p.m. to midnight.
Music lovers will want to head to Dizzy’s at Jazz at Lincoln Center. While you enjoy a three-course menu, you’ll be serenaded with timeless tunes from Cécile McLorin Salvant, who recently won the Grammy for best jazz vocal album. Tickets are $250 per person for the 7:30 p.m. seating or $375 for the 11 p.m. seating, which also includes a champagne toast.
For the ultimate splurge, check out Mandarin Oriental, New York. The black-tie New Year’s Eve Gala features a six-course dinner and live musical performances for $988 per person. Take it to the next level with the LOUIS XIII Lounge, which includes the dinner, a private caviar and cocktail reception, and a surprise at midnight for $2,017 per person. If you don’t want the night to end, book the New Year’s Eve Gala Experience, which includes the dinner, a room reservation, and breakfast to start the new year off right.
