New York City / Brooklyn New Year’s Eve 2018 Party Guide

The Answer: Somewhere between 0 and 1.

The Question: What is the recommended number of times in their life a person should visit Times Square to witness the world-famous ball drop on New Year’s Eve?

Some people do happen to think that throwing themselves into one of the biggest, maddest, messiest crushes of humanity on the planet to bring in the New Year shoulder-to-shoulder with a million strangers (and millions around the world watching) is an exciting item to cross off their bucket lists.  For most of us normal human beings, ugh and no thanks – hard pass.  From the bitterly cold winter weather to the claustrophobic lack of space to the earsplitting noise to the filthy aftermath of narrow trash-strewn streets that were already pretty dirty to begin with, we believe that New Year’s Eve in New York City should be spent ANYWHERE BUT its tourist trap central artery.

For one last chance in 2017 you’ve got a tailor-made excuse to set aside all your past year’s disappointments – and trust us, Times Square on NYE would be yet another disappointment – and promise yourself that next year will be THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIFE, all while surrounding yourself with fun-loving strangers, pulsating music, and premium liquor as you dance all your cares away.  And there are few better cities in the world for doing this than in New York City, one the world’s preeminent entertainment destinations, with hundreds of fabulous party options to suit any taste.

Discotech can most certainly assist with you finding year-end good fortune in a great party atmosphere.  Here our Top 3 picks for the best NYE nightclub parties/events around the Big Apple for you and your friends to close out 2017 and ring in 2018:

1) Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano @ Marquee NY


Feel the New York City lights this New Year’s Eve at the chic and illustrious Marquee Nightclub, featuring the world-renowned electronic music DJs Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano.  A fixture within its sister locations of Las Vegas and Sydney, the Marquee brand continues to dominate New York nightlife and consistently attracts the city’s A-list crowd as well as celebrities, models, and moguls from all over the world.   While the tourists overrun the Times Square area for New Year’s Eve festivities, Marquee remains comfortably tucked away just outside of the fray in nearby Chelsea, and it will be where the well-heeled and influential New York professionals will ring in 2018. Make sure to buy your tickets now to join the party, as this event has sold out every year since its launch nearly a decade ago.  General Admission Includes a 4-Hour Premium Open Bar from 8:30PM-12:30AM, passed trey hors d’oeuvres, and a midnight champagne toast.

Time: 8:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Marquee NY (289 10th Ave, New York, NY 10001)

2) Dream Downtown New Year’s Eve @ pHD Downtown

Located inside the Dream Hotel,  the aptly named pHD has long been a favorite weekday haunt for the city’s large global graduate student community and the even larger community of recent graduates that flock to NYC endlessly to take on new jobs every year.  Whether you’re still in school or have been out for some time, you’re about to earn your advanced degree in partying it up at this haute rooftop nightclub and lounge bar. Decked out in Italian Portoro marble, Macassar ebony, nickel finish walls, and amber Venini glass chandeliers, pHD is a memorable ambiance for putting on the ultimate penthouse party, and it will be rocking into 2018.  Swing, sway and swerve with locals to the on-point beats of guest DJs, and pop out to the landscaped terrace from time to time for one of the city’s most spectacular uninterrupted sightline views of the Hudson River and Empire State Building.  General Admission Includes a 4-Hour Premium Open Bar from 8:30PM-12:30AM, passed trey hors d’oeuvres, a live feed of the Times Square New Year’s Eve Ball Drop, a champagne toast at midnight, and festive NYE party favors.

Time: 8:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: pHD Downtown @ Dream Hotel (355 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011)

3) Gilded Lily New Year’s Eve @ Gilded Lily

From the speakeasies of the Roaring ’20s to the Studio 54 disco set of the ’70s and ’80s, NYC has been a backdrop for the “The Golden Age” of partying.  In 2018, this legacy continues – quite literally – at Gilded Lily, a renowned lavish ultra-club that begins its fourth year as a go-to hotspot in the Meatpacking District.  As you descend down the staircase (or freight elevator if you’re a VIP), you notice that the gold-dusted club is shaped like a pizza peel: the narrow entry and bar area feeds into a sunken dance floor surrounded by concentric rings of banquettes. Plush bottle service couches reign beneath a giant chandelier blinking with digitalized rainbows.  For New Year’s Eve, seasoned local promotions crew Dream Hospitality Group bucks the gilded tradition of their chosen host venue to throw a relatively moderately priced shindig with a friendly house party feel.  Of course, if you still want to be rather excessive, you’re more than welcome to do so: a $5,000 min spend will get you the best table in the house and 10 bottles for 20 friends, as well as the all-important title of the “Gilded King” with a jewel-encrusted crown and scepter to begin your your iron-fisted rule over 2018.  Dilly dilly!

Time: 9:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Gilded Lily (408 West 15th Street, New York, NY 10011)

Honorable Mention:

David Guetta @ Depot 52 Warehouse

Time: 9:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Depot 52 (7 52nd St, Brooklyn, NY 11232)

NYE 2018 @ Electric Room

Time: 8:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Electric Room @ Dream Hotel (355 West 16th Street, New York, NY 10011)

Oliver Heldens NYE 2018 @ Schimanski

Time: 10:00 PM – 5:00 AM

Venue: Schimanski (54 N 11th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249)

New Year’s Eve Party @ The Attic Rooftop

Time: 9:00 PM – 3:00 AM

Venue: The Attic Rooftop (251 West 48th Street, New York, NY 10036)
