Portofino NYE Party, Sharkeez, The Boogie & Hermosa Beach Pier Bars
New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles is not exactly the wildest place on the planet – to find those, you need to go to PubClub.com’s Top NYE Party Destinations – but if you want to party it up in L.A., then head to the South Bay.
There you will find the forever-in-college crowd, lots of bars and a good singles scene.
That’s true all the time because in the South Bay, every day is the Fourth of July and every night is New Year’s Eve.
But on the actual NYE, here’s what’s happening for 2015 in the Beach Cities of Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach.
Top NYE Promoter Party
• Portofino Party
The annual big bash is this 1,000-person party adjacent to the Portofino Hotel in Redondo Beach. There are three rooms, two DJs, tarot card readers and several of the South Bay’s most lively singles. And the location is right on the water. Tickets are $45. Link: Portofino NYE 2015 Party
The South Bay Bars For NYE
