Whether you want to have a casual night with friends or go all out and have a night to remember, New Year’s Eve in Boulder can be anything you want it to be. Here are several of the events that are going on December 31st, 2013.
Absinthe House New Year’s 2014
With eight (count ‘em, eight) international DJs playing, party favors and a champagne toast at midnight, this party combines class and a full blown party right downtown. Tickets are between $15-$35 and you can get them here.
New Year’s Eve James Bond Ball
Have a shaken, not stirred sort of New Year’s Eve at the Boulderado. That’s right, the hotel is going 007 this year and the James Bond Ball offers all of the luxury that any secret service agent is accustomed to. Dine, drink and dance the night away and then simply go upstairs to your room at the Boulderado after you’ve polished off all the champagne you can handle.
Millennium Harvest House Hotel New Year’s Party
Again, a hotel party, so you can rent a room and sleep in the day after living it up the night before. This year, they’re featuring the band “Soul School” so that you and your guests can boogie the night away and celebrate midnight with a champagne toast. There’s a whole bunch of ticket packages including the top package that includes four hours of open bar access.
SALT New Year’s Celebrations & Libations
For the foodies out there, enjoy a prix fixe four course meal, drinks and dancing with Hot Club of the Pearl Street Band. There are two dinner times, so if you prefer to have an earlier dinner and then continue on elsewhere to ring in the New Year, you can do that as well.
NYE AT THE FACTORY: A SPECTACLE IN POP, SILVER & POLAROID
The Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art is hosting a New Year’s Eve Warhol-themed spectacular. The annual fundraiser will transform the museum into the artist’s iconic NY-based Factory. Pop-era costumes or clothing and accessories are encouraged and there will be a photobooth for guests to commemorate their evening.
New Year’s Eve Dance Party at the Avalon Ballroom in Boulder
Why ring in the New Year when you can swing in the New Year? At least one of the four rooms that will be hosting dancing music will be playing swing. Other rooms will play salsa and batchata and couples dancing. There will be performances and lessons throughout the evening and this event is BYO! So feel free to bring your own snacks or booze.
Of course, no matter what event you attend on New Year’s Eve, make sure that you have a safe ride home. Whether you have a DD, a taxi or a limousine, please don’t drink and drive. Nobody wants to begin their new year with a new pair of bracelets and a free ride in the back of a car driven by Boulder’s finest.
Be safe. Be festive. Be thankful!
