If ever there was a time to embrace turning the page on a year, this would be it. Okay, so we said the same thing a year ago, but my champagne flute is half-full. And with that nod to Norman Vincent Peale, what better way to celebrate the arrival of 2022 than offer some celebratory suggestions in the traditional hub of New Year’s Eve festivities, New York City.
Whether you’re a New Yorker who still hasn’t pinned down plans for the big night or a visitor heading to the Big Apple to ring in the new year, here are five great parties that await you courtesy of the always-innovative Gerber Group.
Whoever said that food has to be an afterthought on New Year’s Eve hasn’t experienced Irvington, located at W Union Square. Keep your eye on the culinary prize, and you’ll be treated to a $75 Three Course Pre-Fixe Dinner that kicks off with a first course that includes crispy lamb belly, artichoke soup, and roasted hazelnut spinach pesto topped with fresh apples. The second course is just as tempting, with filet mignon and cauliflower steak romesco accompanied by roasted almonds and pomegranate seeds taking center stage. Your meal, and your year, end on a delicious high note with tiramisu and champagne sorbet. Fittingly, Irvington’s New Year’s Eve Feast tops off the evening with a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.
Head to the 21st floor of Hotel 50 Bowery, and The Crown awaits you with a New Year’s Eve celebration to remember. You’ll enjoy 360-degree views of downtown Manhattan from the rooftop bar as a live DJ spins tunes from 9 pm – 2 am. Your package also includes an hour of tasty passed hors d’oeuvres, two drinks, and of course, a midnight toast.
With unseasonably warm temperatures on Manhattan’s New Year’s Eve horizon, exploring another rooftop celebration only seems fitting. Set off to the city’s Lower East Side and the Hotel Indigo, where Mr. Purple and its iconic disco ball awaits you. Of course, where there’s a disco ball, there’s going to be a DJ to help set the evening’s tone. Included in your package are six drinks, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a champagne toast at the stroke of midnight. Suppose that’s not enough to tickle your New Year’s Eve fancy; Mr. Purple’s 2022 celebration includes the opportunity to enjoy yourself in the Veuve Clicquot Winter Chalet, a larger-than-life snow globe serving up breathtaking views of the city.
Another outstanding venue that awaits you brings us back down to terra firma, as Nearly Ninth’s sidewalk-level bar and private lounge await you. Located at Arlo Midtown, Nearly Ninth will feature a DJ from 9 pm until 1 am to help you ring in the new year while offering a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.
Rounding out the exciting parties that Gerber Group has carefully curated for your New Year’s Eve celebration is the Masquerade Ball they invite you to enjoy at The Campbell. Tucked away into the quintessential NYC landmark, Grand Central Station, The Campbell’s New Year’s Eve festivities will take you back to the Roaring Twenties. So dress to the nines and ring in the new year with passed hors d’oeuvres and a complimentary champagne toast as 2022 arrives.
Whether dancing 2021 away under a disco ball or channeling your inner Jay Gatsby, Gerber Group offers up a cornucopia of New Year’s Eve parties from which to choose. With neither Guy Lombardo nor Dick Clark still with us to help ring in the new year on TV, why not spread your celebratory wings and check out one of these exciting parties in New York City? You won’t be sorry!
Does a Roaring Twenties-themed New Year’s Eve party fit your style or are you more of a disco ball person?
