  • Restaurants
  • East Village

The Moxy East Village rooftop bar’s newly reimagined “holiday disco” theme is replete with photo opportunities to document all of your NYE promises. There are two ticket tiers this year: one for the top floor fête featuring booze and tacos from 7pm-10pm, and one downstairs at Alphabet Bar with more to drink from 10pm-2am. Tickets are $135 for the roof alone, $75 for the second reveling, available here

This is a lower-priced, lower-rise, lower key rooftop for NYE. Its Studio 54-style party promises “disco deep cuts” and a midnight Champagne toast in the heated and covered space. Tickets are $25 at the door and $22.66 in advance, here

There is a small mathematical price gap but a logistical chasm between the first and second price tiers available at Mr. Purple at press time. Single tickets are $165 for five drinks and a midnight toast. Tables for up to six are $1,200, including a $1,200 bottle service credit (or, $200 per person). Tickets for you and/or you and your five best friends are available here

The McKittrick Hotel’s Midnight Ball rolls throughout each of its distinct spaces, including its Gallow Green rooftop. Entry times are staggered for individual standard admission with an open bar, and still available in fifteen minute-increment slots from 9:45-10:45pm at press time. Tickets are $334.50, available here
