The city knows how to celebrate the start of a new year in style — revelers can chat over expensive wines in the East Village, dine at the city’s best restaurants, or feast on fried chicken and Champagne until the wee hours. Whatever you want to do, New York has New Year’s covered — here are some Grub-approved suggestions for where you might want to go this December 31.
If you want to celebrate your New Year’s in true style, head to Ophelia, the newish, sky-high bar and restaurant in the historic Beekman Tower in Midtown East. Not only is the space decorated to the nines, but for $125, attendees will enjoy music, specialty cocktails, passed bites and desserts, and the requisite Champagne toast. Buy tickets here.
