The best New Year’s Eve parties in L.A.Bootie L.A. New Year's Eve
If steep VIP fees or formal galas make you want to stay home, then Bootie is your best bet. This party doesn’t charge a giant cover or encourage dressing to the nines for the night. Instead, it embraces the true spirit of NYE (it’s messy!) by welcoming an unpretentious crowd to let their hair down, dance their faces off and playfully twerk and sing to mash-ups galore. And to further inspire reluctant travelers to get off the couch and into its playful world, Bootie L.A. will gift its famous mash-up mixtape to attendees.
Resident , Downtown Arts District Sunday December 31 2017N.Y.E.L.A.
Ring in 2018 with thousands of fellow Angelenos at the closest New Year’s Eve event L.A. has to a communal celebration. Stay up for the midnight countdown projected onto the exterior of City Hall—with more music and dancing to follow.
Travel back to the 1920s for this massive Prohibition era-themed NYE party, set in Downtown's 1930s Art Deco marvel, Union Station. The Main Concourse serves as the decadent celebration's backdrop, featuring live DJ sets and jazz, burlesque dancers, custom cocktails and champagne. The fabulously dressed 21-plus crowd sets the scene—Roaring Twenties attire is encouraged (think: flapper dresses, feathered headbands, tuxedos, top hats and spats); formal attire is required. Stick around for the NYE countdown and dropping of a 60-foot custom ball.

Dita Von Teese’s New Year’s Eve Gala Show
Spend a sparkly New Year’s Eve at the Ace as contemporary pin-up icon Dita Von Teese hosts this hour-and-forty-five-minute burlesque showcase. Scope out Sqarovski-embellished costumes in the lobby, or splurge on a meet and greet ticket to snap a photo with the Queen of Burlesque herself.
The Theatre at Ace Hotel , Downtown Historic Core Sunday December 31 2017
You can hit up the W’s Rooftop anyday of the year, but with its 360-degree Downtown skyline-meets-Hollywood-Hills view, this trusted destination still serves as a stellar locale for NYE. Inside, the night is made special not by LED walls or caged dancers, but by DJ talent that knows how to capture the energy of a party and elevate care-free rug cutters to the next level of joy. Listen for feel-good house and deep-beat sets. Or, steal away for a pensive, one-on-one moment with nature or a makeout sesh in a cabana alongside the wetdeck—this is New Year’s in L.A., after all.

Cleopatra’s New Year's Eve Ball
This Cleopatra-themed fete is set fittingly and charmingly at the classic Egyptian Theatre. Dress like an Egyptian (if you so choose), then dance and mingle in the theater’s heated courtyard amid a hieroglyphics light show, go-go dancers, DJs, a premium open bar and giant LED countdown. Tickets are known to sell out, so plan ahead now.

New Year’s Eve aboard the Queen Mary
Ring in 2018 aboard the Queen Mary. The 21 and over party has something for everyone on New Year’s Eve—whether you want a more mellow evening with food, drink and live musical performances (think: dueling pianos, Sir Mix-A-Lot, a Selena tribute band) or to dance the night away in a club-like atmosphere—they’ve got you covered. When the clock strikes midnight, share a New Year’s kiss under a dazzling fireworks display over the Pacific Ocean—cheesy, we know, but still romantic.
