New Year's Eve in Los Angeles

Top 10 New Year's Eve Destinations

Officially the Tournament of Roses Parade, the 127th edition of the 5 1/2-mile, two-hour spectacle, titled "Find Your Adventure," will feature equestrian units, colorful floral floats and marching bands


We love Hollywood's exclusive club scene, rowdy pub crawls and over-the-top Cleopatra's New Year's Eve Ball, but this year downtown's Grand Park features live music, art installations, food trucks and a digital video show on the walls of City Hall. Post midnight, head to Pasadena to watch floats being assembled for the legendary New Year's Day Tournament of Roses Parade.


The Edison: Ghosts of dazzling nightclubs past set the stage for a night of drinking, dining and dancing to an eclectic array of live bands downtown.

Greystone Manor: Celebrities, a hot DJ and a bar kick NYE up a notch in this sinfully sexy nouveau supper club on La Cienega.

W Hollywood: The swanky 2016 NYElectric party features stellar city views, headliner DJs and VIP bottle packages in poolside cabanas.


JW Marriott Los Angeles L.A. LIVE: Views, a premier downtown spot in the L.A. LIVE complex, all the perks of the attached The Ritz-Carlton, and oh — did we mention the sweeping views?

The Hollywood Roosevelt: Pretty people galore, cocktails and a one-of-a-kind swimming pool courtesy of David Hockney.
