Not everybody wants to blow a paycheck on New Year's Eve. The Bailiwick has an open bar, small bites, and DJ Kyd Wicked cranking as much EDM as you can handle for a relatively affordable entry fee. Don't forget to make a detour to the photo booth. The Orleans is close enough to the Strip to feel like an experience, but with more parking and less traffic. Call 702-365-7337 to reserve tickets.
Cost: All-inclusive tickets begin at $57
