The best party destinations for New Year’s Eve are the ones that have huge outdoor countdowns and fireworks celebrations. New York City, Berlin, New Orleans, Sydney and Las Vegas are among the best places in the world for NYE for this very reason.
This blows away promoter parties in bars because it’s free, you can generally take your own cocktails and you can party with tens if not hundreds of thousands of people. And not just at midnight, but for hours beforehand and moments afterward, too.
You are also outdoors, free to roam in a big public space and can explore other areas besides just the best viewing locations.
This is the top criteria PubClub.com used to compile this list of Top 10 NYE Party Destinations.
But it has to have more, because after the fireworks, there needs to be a place to party. It could be right there, such as the case of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
Or it could be the Opera Bar in Sydney.
Or it could be Bourbon Street, which is a major reason New Orleans is #1 on our list.
And Duval Street in Key West. (The Conch Republic has a funky NYE where at midnight you have to choose from a Wench Drop, Conch Drop and High Heel Drop, the latter of which is the most popular).
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
