New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles attracts people from all over the globe who are looking for a hopping metropolitan scene without the typical winter snow. There’s no need to fear street salt getting on those new leather boots in this palm tree-filled paradise.
For a guaranteed L.A. NYE party, the club circuit will not disappoint. Every popular dancing and DJ spot will host a New Year’s bash that’s sure to keep a body grooving well past the stroke of midnight. Whether in the heart of Hollywood, on the boulevards of West Hollywood, or in a gritty Downtown L.A. warehouse, venues will be popping bottles all over town.
At the Roosevelt Hollywood Hotel, the ball drop is celebrated during the annual Saints or Sinners NYE Ball. The event takes over the entire hotel, from Tropicana to Teddy’s, with revelers dressed in their sexiest angelic threads, or most depraved devilish gear.
The New Year’s Eve countdown at Universal CityWalk draws crowds for an evening of fireworks, music, dancers, and mass amounts of confetti. Meanwhile on the Queen Mary, a retired ocean liner that’s moored in Long Beach, every NYE shindig is filled with live musical performances and a fireworks spectacle over the Pacific Ocean.
Anyone looking to start the New Year off with a bang – from a starter’s gun – can participate in the New Year’s Race in Los Angeles, a Downtown L.A. night race held in early January. Runners can choose from a half marathon, 5K, and kids fun run.
NYE in LA can also be low-key. Plenty of residents prefer to stay home and host dinner parties or pal-packed drinkfests. But anyone who wants to get out and about for New Year’s Eve in Los Angeles won’t have to worry about finding a place where they can pucker up at 12 o’clock.
