Miami New Year’s Eve 2018 Party Guide

Christmas and Hanukkah have come and gone, and the post-holiday blues are accompanied by freezing temperatures and harsh winter weather.  Well, everywhere except South Florida.  Snowbirds, fly south and unite for some New Year’s Eve revelry.

Miami in winter NEVER disappoints, and for one last chance in 2017 you’ve got a tailor-made excuse to set aside all your past year’s disappointments 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 sunny Miami, 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 Magic City for you and your friends to close out 2017 and ring in 2018:

1) NYE 2018 w/ Nervo @ W South Beach

WET Pool at W South Beach is excited to announce world-renowned electronic music talent Nervo will be headlining an unforgettable start of a new year.  For the past several years Australian sisters Liv and Mim have been a regular mainstay in the World Top 100, and 2017 proved there’s no stopping their shine.   DJ Mag caught up with the busy duo to ask what they’ve been up to this year: “Touring like crazy. Think we’re nudging 200 shows this year. We had our NERVONation parties in Miami, Austria and Ibiza at Ushuaia, which have all been amazing. We have been busy working on new music and recently got a major sync with iPhone 8 for a track we did with Sofi Tukker called ‘Best Friend’.”  Partygoers will be elevated to an oasis of wonderment include premium open bar from 9:00 PM to midnight, champagne toast, and party favors; VIP table service packages inclusive of top-shelf spirits will range from $1,800 – $15,000.

Time: 9:00 PM – 4:30 AM

Venue: WET @ W Hotel (2201 Collins Ave, Miami, FL 33139)

2) NYE 2018 w/ G-Eazy + Halsey @ E11even

Is there anything that gives us more hope for 2018 than two young people in love?  Platinum recording artists and new paramours G-Eazy and Halsey took the 2017 radio charts by storm with their recent hit collaboration “Him & I,” but it’s the awwww-so-sweet music video for the song that everyone is talking about.  Miami snowbirds will join the two love birds as they perform live at E11even to ring in the new year; special guest DJ Irie will provide the dance beats.  Other perks include open bar from 9PM – 11PM, passed hors d’oeuvres, and champagne toast at midnight.

Time: 9:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: E11even (29 NE 11th St., Miami, FL 33132)

3) Alesso New Year’s Eve @ Story

On the heels of one the most ballyhooed performances at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival this past March, superstar DJ Alesso will have the honor of leading the fine folks of Story into the new year.  About his 2017, Alesso says: “The last year, I’ve been just in a very creative environment. I used to just think about what will work on a dance floor at a festival. Now, I try to put out a song that makes me really feel [something], that’s meant to come out through your headphones when you’re on your way to work, or off work in the car, [or] being with your friends. I’m just trying to make the most of each song wherever it goes, not trying to push it to a dance floor direction. If I want it to be a dance floor version down the road, I’ll just remix it.”   Expect the Swedish wunderkind to keep inspiring the world in 2018 and beyond, and expect one of Miami Beach’s most bumping nightclubs to party well beyond the stroke of midnight and into the first dawn of 2018.

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 – 3:00 AM

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

Las Vegas New Year’s Eve 2018 Party Guide

Was 2017 a lucky one for you???  For Las Vegas – the entertainment, nightlife, and gambling capital of the world – it was certainly an up-and-down year.  On one hand, the city welcomed its first professional sports franchise – the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights – with great crowds and rousing early success, and then broke ground on a new stadium for its soon-to-be second, the NFL’s Raiders franchise (moving from Oakland in 2020).  On the other hand, the city also suffered an unspeakable tragedy in the form of the worst terrorist mass shooting in American history during its annual Route 91 Harvest Country Music Festival back in October.

As the year draws to a close, a sense of normalcy and community has returned to Las Vegas, and its glittering fast-paced lifestyle is proudly back on display for all to see – #VEGASSTRONG no doubt.   The trademark winter chill has descended upon the desert, but the casinos, entertainment shows, nightclubs, and bars have bounced back well and warmly from this past autumn’s tragedy.  The city’s locals are forever grateful for the emotional and financial support provided by the renewed streams of visitors coming from all over the world, and they are ready to do what they do best: deliver you stress-free good times for New Year’s Eve weekend and beyond, well into the 2018 calendar year.

For one last chance in 2017 you’ve got a tailor-made excuse to set aside all your past year’s disappointments and low points 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 Sin City, the world’s preeminent entertainment destination, with hundreds of fabulous party options to suit any taste.

In Vegas, they say “Luck Be A Lady” and all visitors hope and pray this fleeting dame does plant a lucky midnight kiss on their cheek to ring in the New Year.   While we can’t control what happens to you at the blackjack or craps tables this weekend, Discotech can most certainly assist with you finding good fortune at a great party.  Here our “Lucky Seven” picks for the best NYE nightclub parties/events around Sin City for you and your friends – be they Rat Pack or Wolfpack – to ring in 2018:

1) Bruno Mars Hosts NYE 2018 @ The Bank Bellagio


Toast to a memorable year with Bellagio as The Bank brings in the New Year the only way it knows how: with fabulous parties, amazing menus and drink specials, and over-the-top entertainment in the form of pop mega-superstar Bruno Mars.  Ring in 2018 in glitz and glamour and dance the night away in the 24K magic glow of the “24K Magic” man, who wraps up his year-long global tour with an encore return to the same venue where he rang in the 2012 and 2017 New Year’s celebrations.

Time: 9:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: The Bank @ Bellagio (Bellagio Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

2) NYE 2018 f/ The Chainsmokers @ XS

Is there any doubt that 2017 was the year of The Chainsmokers?   A slew of Song of The Decade candidates, a global world tour that can only be described as EPIC, and of course the residencies at two of the hottest nightclubs in Vegas.  This past year the duo put on numerous supercharged performances to packed houses at XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club at the Wynn — and now for the Grammy-winning pop duo’s incredible inaugural year as Steve’s nightlife residents, The Chainsmokers will lead the countdown to 2018 behind the decks at XS Nightclub.  All Access New Year’s Eve tickets will be $150 for men and $125 for ladies, giving access to both indoor and outdoor sections of the mega-club. Stage access is not included. Under the Stars tickets, with outdoor access only, are priced at $75 for men and $65 for ladies. Tables range from a $2K minimum spend on the outdoor patio to a $30K minimum spend for VIP stage tables.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: XS @ The Encore (3131 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

3) NYE 2018 f/ Chris Brown @ Drai’s Nightclub

Electronic dance music reigned supreme in Vegas throughout 2017, consistently commanding the highest-price tickets and tables in nightclubs around town.  That being said, there’s no doubt that hip-hop is enjoying a resurgence at the moment, and Drai’s Las Vegas has been a big reason behind that comeback.  This past year saw Drai’s surge to the top of the Vegas hip-hop nightlife ecosystem by committing to booking top-tier talent – Future, Migos, G-Eazy, Lil’ Wayne, to name a few – which in turn made Drai’s a coveted brand and destination not only for hip-hop royalty but for professional athletes and all of black Hollywood.  For New Year’s Eve, superstar performer Chris Brown – arguably the hardest working artist in R&B hip-hop – graces the stage to open 2018 in front of a star-studded and celebrity-filled crowd.  The pride of Virginia has made a reputation among Vegas locals for club performances that last over 3 hours – nearly twice as long as those of other headlining artists – so lucky fans in attendance will definitely get their money’s worth.  Ticketholders for the event will receive two complimentary glasses of champagne to toast at midnight.  Oh, and this will be a black-tie affair…. so channel your best James Bond impressions,  take this tutorial, and come to the Cromwell dressed to the nines.

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00AM

Venue: Drai’s Nightclub @ The Cromwell (3595 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

4) NYE 2018 f/ 2 Chainz @ 1OAK Las Vegas

If you’re a 2 Chainz hater, then you’ve spent a frustrating 2017 sitting on your hands while the Atlanta-born native has burned up the radio airwaves month after month.   Fast on the heels of his third album release in 2016, 2 Chainz dropped his fourth studio album “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” to start the summer, and it immediately became the go-to album for barbecue/pool party background music.  Star-studded tracks such as “Good Drank” featuring Gucci Mane and Quavo, “4 AM” featuring Travis Scott, “Big Amount,” featuring Drake, and of course the ultra-catchy “It’s A Vibe” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, Jhené Aiko, and Trey Songz kept the star in the public eye, and his “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music” tour with his The Trap Choir was a smashing success.   For New Year’s Eve he returns to the site of his 2017 Vegas residency for a special performance featuring surprise guests and all his hits; lounge room tables start at $1,000 and main room tables at $2,500.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: 1OAK LV @ The Mirage (3400 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109)

5) Steve Aoki @ Hakkasan

A 2017 Hakkasan Group resident and the selected headliner for their New Year’s Eve festivities, Steve Aoki is known for the enthralling electronic sounds and hard-hitting beats of his highly energetic shows.  The DJ, producer, and California native began his musical career in 1996 as founder of Dim Mak Records; since then his label has released over 250 music records for other notable electro house artists such as Datsik, Infected Mushroom, Dada Life, Zeds Dead, Aoki’s own collaboration with Tiësto, MSTRKRFT, The Bloody Beetroots, Felix Cartal and Mustard Pimp, Bloc Party, Battles, The Kills, The Gossip, Klaxons, Scanners, Whitey, and Mystery Jets just to name a few.   A surefire fan favorite for his captivating stage presence and zany antics – his signature move is throwing cakes into the crowd – Aoki enthralls dance floors and concert halls around the globe with his remixes and collaborations with some of the best-known DJs and recording artists of our time.  Which of his world-famous friends will join him on stage at Hakkasan on NYE to do his world-famous “Aoki Jump” for the 2018 jump-off?

Time: 10:00 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Hakkasan @ MGM Grand (3799 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV  89109)

6) New Year’s Eve f/ Marshmello @ Intrigue

Wouldn’t it be fund to spend NYE rollicking and laughing the night away with one of EDM’s most talented artists and most humorous, quirky personalities?  A picture is worth a thousand words, and a Youtube clip is worth a million.   Enough said.

Time: 10:30 PM – 4:00 AM

Venue: Intrigue @ The Wynn (3131 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV  89109)

7) Calvin Harris NYE 2018 @ Omnia

What’s New Years Eve in Las Vegas like?

What’s It Like on New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas?

What’s it like? It’s like rabid maniacal slaphappy haywire gaga nobody-home lunacy.

Simply put, it’s the most hyped-up night of the year in the most hyped-up city in the world. Yahoo! named Las Vegas the top place in the world to ring in the new year.

Upwards of 340,000 people jam the Strip every Dec. 31 to party, get rowdy, and ring in the new year. That’s more than twice as many people in Las Vegas as there are during the Consumer Electronics Show, the largest convention of the year.

What’s been called “America’s Party” since its first year, 2002, gets going a mere seven hours before midnight, as soon as the cops close Las Vegas Boulevard. The Strip gets ever more crowded as the minutes tick by and the bodies jam up.

Road Closures

The Strip is closed to traffic from 5 pm till the wee hours. (I-15 on and off ramps eastbound and westbound are also closed at Tropicana, Spring Mountain, Flamingo, and Sahara; the Harmon overpass is closed in both directions as well to all but guests of the hotels in the immediate area).

At 5:45 p.m., all other thoroughfares, including alleys, that lead westbound onto the Strip between Sahara Avenue and Mandalay Bay Road begin closing; it takes about 15 minutes for all the barricades to be put in place. It takes another half-hour for police to direct any cars remaining off the Strip. Pedestrians can start crowding the boulevard at about 6:30 p.m.

Escalators and elevators on pedestrian bridges across the Strip also close at 6:30 p.m.

The Scene Leading up to Midnight

By around 10 p.m., the equivalent of the entire population of Reno (and Sparks) are all shoulder to shoulder on the four-mile stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard South, between Sahara Avenue and Russell Road.

The totally clueless are out there in shorts, T-shirts, and flip-flops, freezing their butts off in the usual sub-40-degree temperatures (they’ll never think it’s always hot in the desert again). The half-clueless are out there downing copious quantities of beer, with nowhere to piss it off (they’ll never think that they can just duck inside a casino bathroom on New Year’s Eve again).

That’s just outside, on the street. Inside, hotel guests, invited guests, and other partiers and patrons pack the casinos from stem to stern until, finally, the whole tourist corridor reaches critical mass.

At that point, the casinos lock their doors and you have to show a hotel key — or in some cases, a players club card — to door-manning security guards to get into a joint. That lasts until the wee hours when enough people have left through the back doors for the casinos to start allowing people in the front.

If you’re staying at a Strip hotel, make sure everyone in your party has a key and get them early, because the lines at front desks for extra keys get ferocious after dark.

It’s not quite as constrictive downtown, where the party on Fremont Street charges admission to attend. Though 10,000-15,000 people cram a five-block stretch of Glitter Gulch, it’s easier to come and go from the casinos.

You’ll find a mostly younger crowd (20s and 30s) on the Strip, while the 40- and 50-something partiers tend to be inside the casinos or downtown at the Fremont Street shindig.

Happy New Year!

A five-minute $500,000 fireworks show (produced by New York’s Fireworks by Grucci) takes place at exactly midnight. The fireworks are choreographed to music and launched from the roofs of seven hotel-casinos along the Strip.

Back down on the Strip, it’s strictly bring all the booze you can drink with you. The later in the evening it gets, the more difficult it is to move around and the harder it is to buy alcohol, even if you can get to a store.

As for the bathroom conundrum, as mentioned, forget about relieving yourself anywhere inside. It might be tough to do so outside anywhere as well. Wall-to-wall people is somewhat inhibiting. And 1,000 uniformed Metro police officers are deployed along the Strip, with another 300 plainclothes cops lurking in the shadows where you might think to take a leak. They’ve been known to arrest people for urinating in public, then charge them with drunk and disorderly.

Also watch out for the people with half-gallon beer mugs: They don’t care where they spill it. And try to stay away from barricades and other crowd-control impediments, which can collapse in the crush. If you’re leaning on or near one, you could go down with them and get hurt.

Many years, in addition, some Darwin Award candidate climbs a lightpost or the side of a building and falls to his death or electrocutes himself, sometimes taking whoever he lands on with him to the grave.

The Clean-up

After the fireworks extravaganza, the crowds on the Strip begin to disperse. The escalators and elevators at pedestrian bridges come back on around 12:15 a.m. The barricades on the Strip are gone by around 1:30 a.m., and the street sweepers are out about 2. Roads around the Strip should be open from 3:30 to 4 a.m.

Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort New Years Eve 2016

1131 Back Bay Dr
Newport Beach, CA

The most anticipated New Year’s Eve Event every year in Orange County. Every year SMG creates an elaborate NYE experience. This Year SMG is stepping out of the box and creating the ultimate seaside extravaganza. RESOLUTION NYE will be erecting a massive tent on the shores of Newport Beach Back Bay for two back to back New Year’s Eve Parties. The emphasis for this year will be on the overall “experience” that will wow the masses. Day 1 (Dec 31, 2016) features SNBRN. Tickets go on sale on 11/21/16 at 11 AM PST. Doors open 8 PM.

The first SNBRN single ‘Raindrops feat. Kerli’ was released January 20th on Ultra Records. “Raindrops” has already garnered over 14 million plays on Spotify and well over 2 million on SoundCloud. It also reached #2 on the HypeM Charts, #12 on the iTunes Dance singles chart, and #25 on Billboard’s Electronic/Dance Music Chart.

SNBRN’s official remix of Marvin Gaye’s “Sexual Healing” hit #1 on HypeM and quickly climbed into the Top 10 House chart on Beatport. Simultaneously, Chris Lake and Matroda’s official remix of SNBRN’s single “California” went #2 overall on Beatport.

Over the summer of 2015, SNBRN hit the North American festival circuit with performances at the likes of Lollapalooza, Electric Zoo, Firefly, Hangout, Electric Forest, Lightning in a Bottle, CRSSD, Hard, & more

Day 2 of RESOLUTION NYE features Above & Beyond. Tickets go on sale 11/21/16 at 11 AM PST. Doors open at 3 PM on 1/1/2017.

CONNECTION. If one word sums up the phenomenon of Above & Beyond then that is surely it. Whether it’s the thousands of fans singing their lyrics back at shows around the world, from Bangalore to Beirut to Brixton, or the millions that tune in for their weekly Group Therapy (ABGT) radio show, connection – real human connection – is at the heart of all things that define this multitalented trio.

Above & Beyond is Jono Grant, Tony McGuinness and Paavo Siljamaki, and their story is one of constant movement over a 14-year history. From their early days as hotly-tipped producers remixing Radiohead and Madonna, to their current global standing, Jono, Tony and Paavo have remained as down-to-earth and determined as ever – always focused on the next goal.

The only dance act in history to win the Essential Mix Of The Year award twice (for their 2004 and 2011 efforts), the London-based trio have played to one million people on the Barra Beach in Rio de Janeiro (New Year’s Eve in 2007), sold out the Hollywood Palladium faster than anyone in history, and even had their track “Buzz” chosen to soundtrack the launch of Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo in the Mojave desert. As these landmarks rack up, the non-stop pulse of their global touring keeps them connected to their growing international fan base. Each week brings another crowd, another country and often another continent, and an ABGT radio broadcast heard by over 25 million people.

A band first and foremost, Above & Beyond are songwriters as much as they are DJs. Their latest project, ‘Above & Beyond Acoustic,’ showcases their deeply rooted musicianship and classical training. Slated for release as a movie and album at the beginning of 2014, the trio has performed the project live both at London’s intimate Porchester Hall, and in two sold-out performances at LA’s renowned, 6,000-capacity Greek Theatre. Working with three singers, a string quartet, harpist, drummer and bassist, Tony sings and plays guitar, mandolin and ukulele, Paavo hits the grand piano, and Jono plays the Rhodes piano, guitar and vibraphone. The resulting product is unlike any undertaking by a dance music act in history. As Billboard noted: “Above & Beyond created one of the finest and more memorable shows in EDM history.”
