If you want to see the Times Square festivities up close, but aren’t willing to forgo food, booze and bathrooms, this gussied-up fete hosted by French Culture Nights is your best bet. In addition to passed hors d’oeuvres and a midnight champagne toast, the $195 ticket will give you access to a terrace overlooking the crossroads of the world—as well as the priceless pleasure of taunting the frozen crowd. Throw in an extra $90 for access to the heated section of the terrace, a four-hour open bar and an inside dance floor, where a DJ will be spinning rock, dance, Top 40 and classic ’80s tunes till 4am.
