Celebrate at this ciderhouse on Capitol Hill with “A Magical Motown NYE” and really get your groove on. Chow on Seattle-style hot dogs for $5 and drink lots of bubbles to get loose for the show.

Chop Shop Cafe & Bar

Copy Link

Jugglers, suckling pig, and belly dancers? That’s one way to start 2016 right. It’s a Roman-style Bacchanalia (aka drunken revelry) feast with platters of antipasti and cheese to start, and a full dinner to follow. And of course lots of wine and champagne toasts. It’s $250 per person all-inclusive so you can eat and drink as the Romans did.

Pennyroyal Bar

It’s a three-tiered, time-zone themed party at this downtown hotel for the holiday. Start the night in New York with appetizers, caviar, and champagne. Move to Chicago for street food, cocktails, and a champagne ice luge. And then end in Seattle for a nightcap of brandy, dessert, and a live feed of the Space Needle Fireworks. One ticket gains entry to all three levels.

Willows Lodge

The Sammamish Ballroom will be hosting its first NYE party this year with heavy hors d’oeuvres courtesy of the Barking Frog and a champagne toast at midnight.
