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 promises to host a party to remember. The family-friendly event will feature three stages of live music, art installations, food trucks and a digital video show on the walls of City Hall. After 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.
Henry’s: A five-hour premium open bar, world-class DJ and guaranteed celebrity sightings are all part of the celebration at this sleek West Hollywood lounge.
W Hollywood: The swanky NYElectric party features stellar city views, headliner DJs and VIP bottle packages in poolside cabanas. Get ready to dance the night away.
Millennium Biltmore Hotel Los Angeles: Located in downtown L.A., this upscale hotel is situated near top attractions including L.A. Live, the Ahmanson Theatre and Walt Disney Concert Hall.
The Hollywood Roosevelt: Pretty people galore, cocktails and a swimming pool courtesy of David Hockney make the Hollywood Roosevelt a one-stop destination for revelry and relaxation.
