Party with Marshmello and say goodbye to a top restaurant
Wynn Las Vegas
Giving the Delano a run for indulgence is the Wynn Las Vegas, where you and 14 friends could theoretically sacrifice a few mortgage payments and buy into the "NYE Ritual" package for $50,000. Your party would be seated in a prime spot at the intimate Intrigue Nightclub with a six-liter bottle of Perrier Jouet Rose, two limited-edition hand-painted Absolut Elyx magnums, and two Avion 44 tequila bottles along with plenty of mixers, Fiji waters, Red Bulls, and Resqwaters (to help reduce what's sure to be a nasty hangover). You'd pump fists to a set by Marshmello and even get an autographed helmet and meet-and-greet with masked DJ. Check in advance for availability. If that deal is too much, ladies can secure a general admission ticket, which gets you close to the action, for $50. (For gents, it's $100.)
Otherwise, you can hear some of the year's biggest pop hits with The Chainsmokers at XS nightclub or check out a big party at the Eastside Lounge where $100 includes table or sofa reservations, DJ, dessert bites, party favors, and a midnight Champagne toast. Pretty much every big restaurant at the resort will have a holiday menu, but you may want to go with the Country Club, which is marking its last New Year's Eve before closing in January. The $275 five-course menu is probably the only one in Vegas serving a Snake River Farms strip loin wrapped in foie gras and mushrooms on New Year's Eve.
Cost: Tickets begin at $50 for Intrigue and $75 at XS
