Stay ahead of the crowd: Where to celebrate New Year's Eve Eve

Jillian Anthony

New Year's Eve is overrated, right? Skip the long lines, heavy cover charges and headaches on December 31 and head to a New Year's Eve Eve celebration. Then happily sit on your couch to watch the ball drop on TV, FOMO-free.

The Salon: New Year's Eve Eve
The DL; 95 Delancey St; F/J/M/Z subway to Delancey/Essex or B/D to Grand St.; 7pm-2:30am; $30 advance, $35 at the door.
This seventh-annual pre-NYE party is a dapper escape from the streets of the city. The celebration of all things vintage hosts a lineup of 50 performers, including burlesque, boylesque, tap dancers, a swing orchestra, jazz bands and DJs. There's even a free swing dance lesson.  

Chromeo DJ set
Output; 74 Wythe Ave, Williamsburg; L to Bedford Ave ; 10pm; $30.
Dave 1 and P-Thugg are throwing a house party, and you're invited. Guests and sidekicks include Nick Catchdubs, Janie Antonelli and Janet VS Rihanna VS Madonna.

Eve of New Year's Eve Party
The Delancey; 168 Delancey St; F to Delancey St; J, Z, M to Delancey–Essex Sts; 7pm; $10.
Get down at the Delancey with performances from metal guitarist Marc Rizzo, violinist Marissa Licata and the Real DJ AP. An eclectic evening, indeed. 

The PIT Factor: New Year’s Eve Eve Edition
Peoples Improv Theater; 123 E. 24th St; 6 to 23rd Street; 7pm; $5.
Peoples Improv Theater hosts their variety talent show, and you can dare to be judged? Can you sing? Juggle? Do a perfect impression of Woody Allen? Now your talent can get the respect it deserves. Email to reserve your spot. Or just come watch other people potentially make fools of themselves.
