Dances of Vice: Parisian Follies New Year’s Eve

Party like it’s 1899 in Paris at this decadent, lively occasion. Dance of Vice brings its vintage flair to the magnificent, palatial rooms of the Grand Prospect Hall with a full revue of cancan dancers, opera and vaudevillian antics. Though the party is inspired by Le Chat Noir of Montmartre, the organizers also tip their hat to a later romantic period with the swing dancing music of the 1920s taking over, so grab an absinthe cocktail and dance the night away.

The Rub NYE

One of the city’s most reliable and longest running dance parties is bringing the red-hot funk, house and hip-hop to 2017. The Rub’s DJs—that’s Eleven and DJ Ayres for the uninitiated—never disappoint during their popular Bell House sets, but the celebratory fervor is only heightened by the biggest party night of the year. After all that moving and grooving, you’ll be thirsty for the complimentary champagne to toast with at midnight.

This time around, the Brooklyn venue is asking you to imagine your future self, the you who will wow in 2017 and beyond, by dressing as your idealized version of yourself in this lifetime or the next. Say cheers to longevity with concoctions from the Elixir & Tincture bar and be on the lookout for magic and other dazzling performances.

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
