Where did 2019 even go? Regardless of how you spent your year, it’s time to ring in another. New Year’s Eve is quickly approaching and tickets are on sale for some of the hottest parties of the season. Here are the five best LA spots to ring in the New Year, whether you’re looking for a festive, over-the-top bash, or an excuse to dress up in your finest historic costume.

1. W Hollywood Hotel Rooftop NYElectric Party

The W Hollywood Hotel is known for throwing amazing parties throughout the year (if you caught the hotel’s Halloween party, you know what we’re talking about). Now catch the hotel’s New Year’s Eve celebration, NYElectric 2019. The swanky affair will include two areas of music, three top LA DJs and a four-hour open bar. What more could you ask for? Plus, the party space boasts awesome views of the city.

2. New Year’s Eve Yacht Party

Spend your New Year’s Eve on the water, with the 17th Annual New Year’s Eve Yacht Party. The stylish event takes place on the 300-guest Fantasea One yacht and your ticket includes a four-hour yacht cruise through the Marina Del Rey Harbor, cocktails, a midnight Champagne toast, buffet, party favors and an amazing 360-degree view of the harbor fireworks. It all goes down accompanied by an awesome DJ soundtrack.

3. W Hollywood Hotel Great Room Gatsby Bash

Yeah, yeah, we mentioned the W Hollywood Hotel Rooftop as a great place in LA to ring in the New Year, but downstairs in the W Hollywood Hotel Great Room, you’ll find the hotel’s seventh annual Gatsby’s House Gatsby-themed bash, which is just as amazing. As you might expect from the theming, the event goes all out to recreate a 1920s party that even Gatsby himself would be proud of. Dress in your best 20s attire, or just pull out your favorite cocktail dress.

4. Classic Hollywood Roosevelt New Year’s Eve Party

The Hollywood Roosevelt is rolling out the red carpet, offering its New Year’s Eve party guests only the best experience. The fourth annual event includes eight DJs, a six-hour open bar, four rooms of music and more. Dress to impress your friends and maybe even indulge in some VIP upgrades, which include private VIP bars, enhanced party favors and bottle service.

5. Cleopatra’s 11th Annual LA New Year’s Eve Ball

Lastly, at the Egyptian Theater Courtyard and Confession Lounge, dance the night away to the Top 40 hits as six DJs spin tunes inside a heated outdoor tent. The experience includes five hours of open bar service, Egyptian dancers and VIP rooms. The party is known as one of the absolute best LA New Year’s celebrations and absolutely earns its nickname as the Times Square of Los Angeles.
