In Miami you don’t need an excuse to party, but New Year’s Eve takes everything up several notches. If you’re looking for a glitzy party to welcome the new year with style, sparkle, and plenty of Champagne, check out these three. The party will be rocking, but when the clock strikes midnight, you and your date will feel like the only people in the room.
Great Gatsby NYE 2015
Slip into a flapper-inspired sequinned gown and a feathered headband for a New Year’s Eve party at the slick, swank Cavalli Restaurant and Lounge. This year the club’s fabulous soirée is Great Gatsby-themed, putting an art deco spin on the restaurant’s usual tropical-glam look. You and your sweetie will do it up Roaring Twenties style, and be the life of the party all night long. Enjoy a dinner that includes heavenly white truffle risotto, lobster, and foie gras – and pop a bottle of Dom Pérignon’s 2004 vintage when 2015 finally arrives.
Peace, Love & Music
Talk about free love. At the New Year’s Eve party at Nikki Beach Miami, you’ll be lounging with your special someone on a white linen-draped bed on the beach, watching a fireworks display with hundreds of other couples. Nikki Beach is a private day club for the jet-set crowd, so you’ll rub elbows with the famous and fabulous as you don your masks and party hats for the party. The hippie-inspired bash includes a pre-party dinner in a candlelit garden, accompanied by plenty of bubbly.
La Mar by Gastón Acurio
Settle in for a hip, modern celebration at the Mandarin Oriental on New Year’s Eve. You’ll be serenaded by a high-energy DJ while enjoying an elegant Peruvian dinner at La Mar by Gastón Acurio. The prix fixe dinner sends 2014 out in style, with sophisticated twists on traditional Peruvian dishes — including a Champagne cocktail made with chicha morada, a corn-based drink from the Andes. Who says you can’t try something different as you ring in the new year? As midnight approaches, hold hands and look out over the sweeping views of the Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay. Another year of great memories is only moments away.
