If you’re looking to go to a venue for an epic bash, Boston has you covered there too. The biggest party here is the Resolution Ball. “It’s the perfect occasion to dress up, dance, sing, drink and spend time with those closest to you as we party into celebrating another year together,” they explain. This year the event takes place at the Westin Copley Place from 7pm – 2am. There will be reserved dining options, a live DJ, and a ton of dancing.
From prix-fix plated options to special buffets, you can find basically every dinner party option you’d like in Boston. In fact, Time Out recently highlighted every special going on in the city. Certain establishments are adding champagne toasts to the offerings as well. Bar 10 is one of them stating, “Bar 10 will have live music by Lisa Bello & Friends, a midnight champagne toast.” Reservations are highly recommended and often required to reserve your table.
Surprisingly all the Boston sports teams, Patriots, Celtics, and Bruins are on the road during this New Year’s Eve. Nonetheless, you can certainly put on your favorite sweatpants and set up on the couch for the day. The Patriots kickoff the day at 1 pm in Buffalo. Then the Celtics (in San Antonio) tipoff at 5 pm.
