New Year's Eve parties in NYC

Hot Chip (DJ Set) + Simian Mobile Disco (DJ Set)

London’s Hot Chip is often compared to NYC’s LCD Soundsystem, on account of their ability to imbue delicious disco beats with genuine heart and humor. And similar to James Murphy and his crew, Hot Chip's members love to drop their instruments on the decks. Catch their eclectic DJ set, which is sure to run the dance-music gamet from techno to disco, at this New Year's Eve party with JD Samson, Olive T, fellow UK selectors Simian Mobile Disco and more.

NYE Rave Cave

Rave in the New Year at this shindig hosted by reliable NYC party crews Rinsed, MeanRed and ReSolute. In the headlining slot, the truly astounding DJ, producer and identity-politics theorist DJ Sprinkles makes and plays everything from challenging electroacoustic material to more traditional (though still quite beautiful) house music. The last time we caught the veteran, it was a stellar, bumping set, so you can expect something special for this set. Also on the bill is Scissor & Thread cofounder Francis Harris, Parris Mitchell, Sean Glass and more.

New Year’s Eve Phantasmagoria

Collaborators Amanda Palmer (of Dresden Dolls fame) and Jason Webley are ready to bid farewell to 2017, and all the crap that came with it, with a bang—make that many, many loud bangs. Palmer and Webley, known for their conceptual cabaret duo Evelyn Evelyn, bring their experimental performance art backgrounds to Brooklyn Bazaar for a night full of “musical mayhem,” surrealist puppetry and plenty of surprises. They’re joined by Philadelphia's This Way To The Egress, and New York-based performance artists Lacy Rose, Alaina Ferris and Kalan Sherrard.

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 2018. 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.

New Year’s Eve: Y2K at House of Yes

Party like it’s 1999 at a celebration that’s both a nostalgic throwback and a futurist glam-fest. House of Yes is reliving the Millennium Midnight countdown with  ’90s music, fashion (neon animal print crop tops) and snacks like Capri Suns, Gushers and Fruit Roll-Ups. Also enjoy the Y2K of it all, with some “cyber sexy glam tech,” robots and more. This party has a strict dress code of 90s styles or futurist looks, so, fellas, take your pick of dressing like a Backstreet Boy on TLC or a Backstreet Boy in the “Larger Than Life” music video.

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
