It comes as no surprise that the House of Yes NYE party sold out immediately, but lucky for us, the iconic, outlandish venue is throwing a second party just down the street. For an evening of glamour and decadence, hit The 1896 for The Grand Ball. In typical HOY style, there will be aerial performances, champagne showers, provocative ice sculptures, and naturally, fire-eating-dancers. The dress code is black tie, but gold and silver are actively encouraged.
Cost: $105, or $160 including a three-course Grand Feast dinner beforehand. If you can wait until 4am, it's only $35.
You don’t want to be anywhere near Times Square when the ball drops. Trust us. If you’re really committed to witnessing the iconic event, we suggest you order some takeout and pop some personal Champagne at home, while enjoying the live Phish performance on TV.
