It's easy to find a party in Las Vegas any night of the year, so rest assured you will have no problem finding somewhere to ring in the New Year with music, drinks, and dancing. Vegas goes big for New Year's not only with multiple fireworks shows set off simultaneously by the big casinos on the strip, but also with its headlining acts. The big stars get paid big bucks for their New Year's Eve performances in Las Vegas and on December 31 you can say goodbye to the year with a Vegas-style bang.

Of course, if you're not up for a wild all-night party, you could always head to the Strip to be a part of the crowd when the fireworks start at midnight.

Stratosphere Skyline Spectacular

Want to watch the fireworks, but don't want to wait in the cold? Head to the 108th floor of the Stratosphere for their Skyline Spectacular, where you'll be able to see the show from their observation deck 800 feet above street level. This three-hour party includes an open bar, a live DJ, and food stations serving up grub from world-class chefs. The dress code is "Dress to Impress," so go all out with your New Year's Eve outfit.

New Year's Eve at Sparrow + Wolf

The restaurant Sparrow + Wolf has two great events going on the night of December 31 to ring in the new year. First, attend their Champagne and Caviar Dinner starting for an early celebration that features a tasting of five different kinds of champagne and five different kinds of caviar. Then, if you want to party till midnight, don't miss the Forever Young 80's Prom starting at 11 p.m. There will be a "bodacious" band, a "tubular" champagne toast, and a costume contest—so don't forget your shoulder pads!

The Cosmopolitan

The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan often throws a massive party featuring a headlining guest, with big names like Lizzo from previous years. But that's not at all the resort has in store for the big day. There is also the annual viewing celebration at the ice rink, which includes an open bar and live DJ and hotel guests can access the pool deck to see the fireworks from up there. Separate parties will also be going on at the CliQue Bar, the Marquee Nightclub, and the hotel's speakeasy, known as the Barbershop. You can also check out the prix-fixe menus at one of the hotel's eight restaurants for their special New Year's Eve menus.

Cabo Wabo Cantina

Cabo Wabo welcomes the new year with an unforgettable Strip-side patio party, complete with unobstructed views of Las Vegas’ New Year’s Eve fireworks display. General admission to the patio includes an all-you-can-drink beverage package and patio access. VIP access to the patio is also available, which includes front-and-center seating, an all-you-can-drink beverage option, and a three-course meal including the choice of one appetizer, entrée, and dessert from the cantina’s regular menu. The LOFT, the cantina’s posh upstairs event space, is also available for reservation for groups seeking a private party with a view of the Strip.


See some of the biggest DJs in the world performing at the mega-club Hakkasan. At this Vegas dance club, the ceiling is literally dancing along to the music, creating a moving ceiling effect that can't be found in any other club in Las Vegas. If you haven't seen the Hakkasan Grid in action before—as the ceiling is called—your mind is guaranteed to be blown on New Year's Eve.

New Year's Eve Celebration at Commonwealth

The bar Commonwealth will kick off the New Year Eve celebration with a hosted open bar including well drinks and draft beers starting at 7 p.m. The main room and rooftop will rock out to end-of-the-year party tunes with hit jams from Vegas’ own local DJs. At midnight, the venue will invite guests to the rooftop for a New Year’s cheer and unobstructed views of the spectacular fireworks show throughout the city. Bottle service and table reservations are also available for purchase.

New Year's Eve Escape Masquerade Party

On December 31, Gold Spike and Inspire are two different clubs in downtown Las Vegas that offer an alternative to the crazy strip parties at their annual “Escape Masquerade” New Year’s Eve Ball. With two venues, you'll have access to two separate parties, both with open bars. There is also live music and a complimentary champagne toast.

New Year's Eve at Caesars Palace

At the Spanish Steps of Caesars Palace, count down to midnight with a VIP party and premier views. The casino is hosting parties in the Alto Bar and Vista Cocktail lounge with a live DJ, complimentary champagne, and drink packages available, but reserve your tickets in advance to make sure you can get in.

Rooftop Party at VooDoo

At the VooDoo Rooftop Night Club, you'll enjoy panoramic views of the fireworks while jamming out to a live DJ. This is one of the best places to catch the pyrotechnic display in Las Vegas and there are also plenty of party favors and photo opportunities available, as well as an open bar.

House of Blues

On the 63rd floor of the Mandalay Bay, the House of Blues celebrates with a performance from a headlining musical artist each year. General admission tickets are standing room only and doors open at 7 p.m. Before the show, you could grab dinner and drinks at the House of Blues Restaurant & Bar or stop into the B Side bar for a more gastronomic experience.

NYE at the Times Square Bar

If you've always wanted to be in Times Square for New Year's, head to the Bar at Times Square at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino. Starting at 9 p.m., the bar airs the live broadcast from the real Times Square, which means you can experience two Times Square countdowns in one night! Your ticket includes access to the party on the resort's Brooklyn Bridge and an open bar. You can count on DJs, dancing, and a great view of the city's midnight fireworks.

Rockhouse NYE Party

Rockhouse, a venue at the Venetian Casino that balances Las Vegas' famous glitz and glam with a hint of rock-n-roll, will send off the year in style with a live DJ, open bar, and New Year’s Eve bottle service packages for Strip-side revelers from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. The party spot offers an all-night open bar stocked full of premium liquor, plus a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.

PBR Rock Bar & Grill New Year's Eve

With a mechanical bull, Strip-side patio, two DJ booths, and four full-service bars, the PBR Rock Bar & Grill is a great place to kiss the year goodbye. Its central location inside the Miracle Mile Shops at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino means you will have some of the best views of the firework display from both inside and outside. If you want unlimited drinks, purchase a special ticket for the open bar.
