The last day of the year is the perfect time to throw a raging party and Palm Springs has events for anyone looking to dance and celebrate the new year.
Since we are heading into the 2020s, many parties are taking it back to the Roarin’ 20s for some swinging fun, like the New Year’s Eve Gala at the Renaissance Palm Springs Hotel. This event will be an evening of elegance and decadence with ticket prices at $169 for the entire evening (tickets for the Countdown Party at 9:30 p.m. only are $69 and includes the toast and dancing). The party starts at 6 p.m. and goes to 2 a.m. with a countdown to midnight. There will be a cocktail hour (full no host bar) with hors d'oeuvres, followed by a gourmet dinner buffet and desserts with coffee. Guests will be entertained by dancing, a dinner show, and a champagne toast at midnight. Dress code for the night is 1920s and 30s style or black tie if you can’t get a costume together.
Seasoned clubbers looking for a party should head to Copa Nightclub for a night of music and dance. The event runs from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. which means plenty of time for dancing and tickets are $20 for an affordable night on the town, there are also a limited number of VIP private booths available for reservation. This is a 21+ event and guests must provide ID upon entry. Music for the night will be provided by DJ Banks and Mr. Miami featuring Top 40s, Latin, Hip Hop and house music. Dancers will be given party favors upon entry and there will be champagne at midnight. The club will also show a midnight countdown on their giant LED screen.
If you are in the mood for music, get tickets for Steel the Night at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club (in the Commune space). This event will headline with Helado Negro and the Tinsel Mammals, a multi-sensory musical performance, and feature Absolut Elyx and Jeremy Sole as the late-night entertainment. There are two different tickets available for purchase, the $100 Welcome Party with light bites and cocktails at 8 p.m. and the $75 General Admission at 9 p.m. A special menu will be available for dinner and there will be a champagne toast at midnight.
For a colorful entrance into the new year join Runway Bar and Restaurant for their NYE Celebration. Tickets are priced at $79 and the party begins at 8 p.m. Guests will be treated to a four course dinner of salad, soup, entree, and dessert with a champagne toast at midnight. Entertainment for the night includes drag shows featuring Bella da Ball, Marina Mac, Sassy Ross and more, DJ Bobby will provide the music for a late-night dance party that will close out the night.
Welcoming in a new decade means this new years party must be over the top, but hosting is such hard work so let someone else do it. Grab your dancing shoes and glow sticks and head over to any of Palm Springs’ NYE celebrations.
