With the holiday season upon us and New Year’s celebrations right around the corner, many people are getting their New Year’s party plans in order while also wrapping gifts and decorating their homes for the holidays. The holiday season can be a crazy, demanding time, but one thing is for sure: once New Year’s rolls around, it’s time to celebrate. Whether you’re celebrating another successful year, getting a new job,  getting married, having a baby or making strides towards a better you, New Year’s is the perfect time to enjoy the fruits of your last year, look forward to the next, and celebrate it all in style.

We don’t know about you, but in our book, New York City is pretty much the quintessential destination for New Year’s Eve celebrations. From the Times Square celebrations to the numerous parties around the city and its boroughs, you can’t go wrong ringing in the new year in beautiful NYC. Here’s a list of tips to help make your celebration absolutely perfect this year.


One of the easiest ways to get around during your New Year’s celebrations is to book chauffeured car service. With the craziness of the celebrations, the crowds on every street corner and the general pandemonium, you’re going to want your transportation to be in the hands of someone who knows what they’re doing.

A chauffeur will be a local expert who will have all of the shortcuts memorized and will have plenty of advice to offer up about the best bars, restaurants, and events. Additionally, having a chauffeur means you won’t have to worry about parking all night. That means you can attend as many events as you want, no matter where they’re located in New York City. A better New Year’s Eve is a simple chauffeured vehicle away.


New York City has a plethora of New Year’s celebrations and choosing the perfect one for you and yours might be a little bit of a challenge. Whether you want the best cocktails in the city or to simply dance the night away, NYC offers tons of options for ringing in the New Year your way.

One of our favorite New Year’s celebrations in the city is The NYC New Year’s Eve “Crawl ‘Til the Ball Falls Bar Crawl” (say that ten times fast). A ticket to this epic NYC, which runs only $10 might we add, will get you access to the organized bar crawl over a variety of “to be announced” bars in the village of your choosing. Ticket price will also include admission to all bars included in the bar crawl schedule. The event runs from 5 pm on December 31 to 4 am on January 1.

Another standout New Year’s Eve celebration in the city is the Dream Downtown 2014 New Year’s fete. Access to the event, which will run you around $150 for a standard ticket, will give you access to the premium open bar until half past midnight, live DJ performances, and a champagne toast at midnight.

New Year’s Eve is New York City is an experience unlike any other. You have a variety of amazing events to choose from, plenty of exciting people to meet, and with a chauffeured car, you’ll never have to wrry about finding a parking spot or getting home safely when the night draws to a close.
