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 new 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 five-hour open bar kick NYE up a notch in this sinfully sexy nouveau supper club on La Cienega.
W Hollywood: The swanky 2015 NYElectric party features stellar city views, three 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, a one-of-a-kind swimming pool courtesy of David Hockney and the nouveau vaudevillian Beacher's Madhouse boasting burlesque, fire-breathers and acrobats.
