2016 is just about over. Another year has come and gone, but we are looking forward to what 2017 has in store! There is plenty to eat, drink, and celebrate around Denver this New Years Eve. Below are some of the best places to ring in the New Year:
New Year’s Eve Fireworks
The sky will once again sparkle over the 16th Street Mall at the close of 2016 with the New Year’s Eve Fireworks Downtown. The two spectacular fireworks shows will occur at 9 p.m. and midnight. For the best viewpoints, stand along the 16th Street Mall. Costumed entertainers will interact with crowds between shows, including magicians, mascots, balloon artists, stilt walkers, comedians and more.
Zoo Year’s Eve
Enjoy a perfect New Year’s Eve celebration for the entire family at the Denver Zoo. With a special New Year’s Eve countdown at 9 p.m., your little ones will be able to enjoy the holiday but still get home in time for bed. Activities are included with Zoo Lights admission.
New Year’s Eve Countdown Party at Union Station
Ring in the new year at the iconic Denver Union Station with, not one, but three New Year’s Eve parties. There’s the Great Hall Silent DJ Party, in which three DJs from New York’s Sound Off will spin beats as guests dance while listening through LED-lighted headphones. Then there’s a speakeasy party on the lower level of the station, with a private party featuring live music by Denver’s Gypsy Swing Revue from 10 p.m. – 1 a.m. Last but not least, celebrate the end of 2016 in one of Denver’s most romantic spots, the Cooper Lounge. Raise a glass at midnight with a complimentary glass of Veuve Cliquot in a commemorative Cooper Lounge Champagne flute.
New Year’s Eve at Club Wings
Party in a World War II-era aircraft hangar as Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum hosts an evening of drinks and dancing. DJ Wonder will fill the hangar with a blend of original electronic dance music and exclusive remixes.
Resolution New Year’s Eve 2017
Held at downtown’s stylish Curtis Hotel, Resolution NYE 2017 features an all-inclusive premium open bar (for those 21 and over), some of Denver’s top DJs and live bands, theatrical performers and glamorous holiday decor. The countdown to 2017 will include a massive balloon drop, confetti and a light show.
White Rose Gala @ Denver Performing Arts Center
A Roaring ’20s and Great Gatsby theme will make this year’s White Rose Gala a sparkling spectacle. There will be a speakeasy area, multiple levels and balconies, flapper girls, live music from Swing Je T’aime, more than 40 performers and dancing — and it will all end in a confetti blast at midnight, complete with party hats and noise makers.
