It’s time to ring in the new year again, and as always there will be something to do for everyone in Louisville.  No matter what your age, or your interests are you are likely to find an event that will fit your particular New Year’s mood. Here are some of the highlights that you can choose from in order to close out the year in style!

Diamond Pub Concert Hall | Heavy Hitters Ball | 630 Barret Ave

The Villebillies Diamond Pub New Years EveThe Diamond Pub Concert Hall is HUGE.  If you don’t remember the building that Jillian’s used to be in a long time ago, it’s well over 20,000 sq ft and a super cool venue.  For new year’s eve this year they have outdone themselves.  For only $25 you get access to the entire building all night long, a champagne toast at midnight, an hors d’ouvres buffet from 8pm-11pm, drink specials all night, plus live music from:  FLAW, The Villebillies, Elephant Room, Signal the Revolution, Naked Garden, Slinky Jenkins, and Bob Anonymous.  Facebook Event

The Galt House Hotel | Cotton Club at Rivue, Parrots in Paradise, and Blackout Affair | 140 N 4th St

The Galt House Hotel typically hosts 3 different parties on New Year’s Eve.  This year is no different.  Each party has different features for each type of party-goer, and there is also an option to visit multiple parties.  There are so many options for party packages including overnight stays, dinner, drinks etc.  Make sure to check out their Event Page for all the details.  Tickets range from $40 – $375

I did this party two years ago and it was a blast!  It was not over-crowded, and the tickets are only $10-$15.  This year the doors open at 8:00 pm, with a dance lesson at 8:30.  DJs Matt Anthony and Woodrow on the Radio will begin their live broadcast at 9:00pm, live music from the Junkyard Dogs will begin at 10:30 pm, and there will be a balloon drop at midnight.  Tickets and Info

21c Atrium New Year’s Eve Bash | 21c Hotel and Proof on Main | 702 W Main St

The wildly exciting museum hotel in downtown Louisville, 21c, together with Louisville’s favorite in-house restaurant, Proof on Main, will host a new year’s eve bash in the atrium of the hotel.  There will be DJs, dancing, champagne toast, a balloon drop, and the option of an elegant dinner at Proof on Main to start off the night.  Tickets are $55 for party admission or $140 for dinner and party admission.  More Info

The Outlook’s Epic NYE Party | The Outlook Inn | 916 Baxter Ave

That’s right.  This is not a typo.  The Highlands’ favorite watering hole, which typically strays away from the New Year’s Eve party (in fact they are usually closed) decided to pull out all the stops this year and throw down!  You must sign up for this party at the Outlook as spots are limited.  $30 per person or $50 per couple will get you 3 drink tickets per person, hors d’ouvres, champagne toast, balloon drop, and jams by DJ David Boone.  The party is from 10 pm to 2 am (last call at 1:30).  This is the NYE party for the local expert!
