Glitterballnyc.com NYE 2016

The top brass at Glitterballnyc.com must have forgone their holiday bonuses to put this local superstar bill together for their third annual East Williamsburg NYE celebration. Appearances from ‘90s rave vet The Horrorist (Things to Come), Alex from Queens (Capriccio), DJ Andi (Synthicide), resident DJ/man-about-town Facets and a super-special, super-secret super-guest. It's really hard to go wrong for $20 though amirite?

Holy Ghost!

The synth-boogie boys of DFA duo Holy Ghost! has won them many fans both at home in NYC and around the world. Tonight they help you ring in a new year with a DJ set at the Western-themed Pioneer Works. Support comes DJ Aku spinning all night as well as live performances from Kanye-collaborators Teachers and London's Hannah Lucia. Food, beer, wine and cocktails included with very specifically-priced entrance fee.

Justice (DJ set) + Gesaffelstein (DJ set) + Bob Moses + With You.

Parisian duo Justice headline this New Year's Eve blowout with fellow French export Gesaffelstein and NYC's own Bob Moses (the oddly named team of Jimmy Vallance and Tom Howie). Justice's most recent album, 2011's Audio, Video, Disco, might have departed from headbanging electronica toward a prog-rock–informed take on DJ music. Still, experimental influences are practically irrelevant here; it’s all about the thump-thump-thumpin’ beats that will keep you dancing well into the night.

Mister New Year's Eve

Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin are back for the big holiday edition of their party devoted to the outer reaches of house, disco and techno. The guys are once again keeping it relatively simple—no big guests, just the residents themselves playing over a killer sound system—but on this overhyped night, we'd consider that a plus.

Bossa New Years

If there's something we learned about nightlife in 2015, it's that spending the holidays at Bossa Nova is always the right move. To ring in the new year, the club is hosting some of planet Earth's finest DJ talent—three artists who have, time and again, wreaked havoc on the famed (and fogged) dance floor at Bossa Nova Civic Club. Leave it to L.I.E.S. label-mates Vereker, Marcos Cabral and Shawn O'Sullivan to close out the year with a bang.

New Year's Noir: Hot Since 82 + Julia Govor

Leeds, U.K., music-maker Daley "Hot Since 82" Padley, a house producer who walks the tightrope between underground credibility and big-room populism, hits Brooklyn for what Verboten is refering to as "New Year's Noir," so expect a lot of shadows and very little light we assume? He is joined in the revelry by former Russian military band singer–turned-DJ Julia Govor.

Open bar for the first hour beginning at 9pm.

The Last New Year's Eve Disco Extravaganza

New Yorkers who remember the wild, outrageous New Years Eves of the 1970s will rapture in this night of unrelenting disco revival in Coney Island. Enjoy performances by Soul Train–era divas Rochelle Fleming and Melba Moore, then nod you head and get to steppin' with vinyl classics from DJ Nicky Siano. If Coney Island is the last bastion of the old New York, then this may be one of its purest throwback nights in history.

The best New Year's Eve Singles party I've been to is the one hosted by OnSpeedDating. I actually ended up meeting my fiancé at their New Year's Eve Party in 2012. If you're single and looking for somewhere to ring in the New Year I highly recommend their event. The key is to purchase tickets early or you'll get stuck paying full-price. They usually offer an early-bird special. http://www.OnSpeedDating.com
