New Years Eve is literally the night of “new” beginnings. We set an expectation that it will be the best night of the year, finally corking the Veuve Clicquot that’s been sitting on our desks since June, and sharing it with our best buds. Lucky for you, we’ve gathered a list of the perfect outings to choose from in NYC that will be worth every penny. But let’s be honest – the best part of New Years is celebrating with your friends, so anywhere you go with them, should be the best night of the year!
