The ultimate guide to everything New Year’s Eve.
NYE 1980s TIME WARP PARTY @ BEAT HOTEL
If you’re not ready to ring in 2014, then why not just drink and ignore it all? Well, now you can do that at Beat Hotel with their 1980s Time Warp Party. Because sometime you just gotta party like it’s 1979. Y’know.
[13 Brattle St., Cambridge. 9pm/21+/$75-$115. @BeatHotel13. beathotel.com]
FORUM’S STRONGER THAN EVER NYE @ FORUM
Forum was the most devastated business after the Marathon, but their delayed opening is not going to stop them from celebrating a new year. You can join them in ringing in the new year and celebrating both theirs and Boston’s strength this year, too! But you may want to reserve your tables quickly!
[755 Boylston St., Boston. 8pm/21+/$37.50. @Forum_Boston. forumboston.com]
ROCK ON! CONCERT PRESENTS: THE LEGENDS OF NEW YEAR’S EVE @ MIDDLE EAST DOWNSTAIRS
Justin Timberlake! Jay Z! Okay, more like their cover band counterparts: The Timberfakes and Hard Knock Live. But they’re going to be doing all the JT/Jay Z hits and, quite frankly, we’re sold! Who wants to toast with champagne when you can sip from your cup til it runneth over? #HOLYGRAIL
[472 Mass Ave., Cambridge. 8pm/18+/$25. @MidEastClub. mideastclub.com]

DISCOTHEQUE BURLESQUE NEW YEAR’S EVE @ THE BEEHIVE
An evening of bohemian decadence and eccentric fun! The Beehive knows exactly what you want this NYE: almost-nudity and the full-on Studio 54 experience. Okay, not really Studio 54, but it’ll probably still be a night to remember.
[541 Tremont St., Boston. 9pm/21+/$85-$125. @BostonBeehive. beehiveboston.com]
NYE @ COOGAN’S PUB
Not for the nightclub life? Ring in your NYE at the cozy neighborhood bar that is Coogan’s! And nothing says New Year’s like a champagne toast at midnight, either – Coogan’s gotchu.
[171 Milk St., Boston. 9pm/21+/$25 @CoogansBOSTON. coogansboston.com]
RISE NYE @ RISE
RISE is not everybody’s cup of tea, especially if they like that tea laced with some whiskey. That said, RISE is still a sick after-hours party spot for dance enthusiasts. While everyone else is crashing, you can keep the party going til six in the mooo-nin’! Literally.
[306 Stuart St. 11:55pm/18+/$10 members, $20 general @RISEnightclub. riseclub.us]
NYE 2014 @ ROYALE
If you’re looking for a more sexy, less laid back NYE, look no further than Royale. Also, if you’re looking for booze, you’re in the right place: Royale is a mega club with multiple bars. You’ll never be too far away from your champagne toast at midnight. We guarantee it.
[279 Tremont St. , Boston. 8pm/21+/$75-$125 @RoyaleBoston. royaleboston.com]
AVERAGE JOE NYE PARTY @ MASS AVE TAVERN
Tired of getting all dolled up for NYE? Tired of putting on your best faux-fur only to have that one drunk sonofabitch at Fenway ask if you have a wolf attached to you? Well, fuck that guy and fuck that general area. Mass Ave Tavern guarantees this: no cover, no tickets, no dressy attire. But there’s still a toast at midnight!
[94 Mass. Ave., Boston. 7pm/21+/FREE. @MassAveTavern. massavetavern.com]
NYE MASQUERADE BALL 2014 @ BRIGHTON BEER GARDEN
Masquerade means mask in French. Yes. And if you want to feel even more cultured this NYE, head on over to Brighton Beer Garden for its Masquerade Ball NYE Party. So, go ahead Juliet, ring in that New Year with your masked Romeo. Chill with the suicide, though.
[386 Market St., Boston. 10pm/21+/$25. @BrightonBeerGrd. brightonbeergarden.com]
NEW YEAR’S EVE 2014 @ GEM

This NYE, Underbar will be putting it’s state of the art soundsystem to the test with its packed lineup of DJs: DJ Johnny Vicious & Julee and DJ BuBu. Underbar is one of Boston’s most popular nightclubs for a reasons, so it’s very likely that tickets for this event are selling like hotcakes. Or something else hot that is edible.

NYE 2014: OUT TO PASTURE @ WILLIAM’S TAVERN
2013 was the year of the horse and, as this year ends, it’s time to take that proverbial horse out to pasture. But in a fun way! Trust us, the night will be filled with music, dancing, and drinking – no guns or glue or mob dealings. We’re 99% sure.
[92 A St., Hyde Park, Boston. 9pm/21+/$30. williamstavernboston.com]
IT’S A THROWBACK NYE 2014 @ VENU
Two rooms of entertainment and a champagne toast at midnight. What sets this party apart from other NYE parties is that it’s a throwback party – no top 40 for this party. At least, not this decade’s top 40. Also, Venu’s got HOT 96.9′s DJ Hustle Simmons and Melissa rolling through, so it’s definitely going to be rad.
[100 Warrenton St., Boston. 10pm/21+/$40-$65. @VenuBoston. venuboston.com]
NYE 2014 @ CURE LOUNGE
DJ Case and DJ Theo A. will be spinning top 40 at Cure Lounge on NYE. But Cure also boasts a new dancefloor and new furniture. So, why not bring in New Years with all new err’thing?
[246 Tremont St., Boston. 10pm/21+/$50-$75. @CureLounge. curelounge.com]
TOGETHER PRESENTS: NEW YEAR’S EVE W/ KON @ GREAT SCOTT
This NYE at Great Scott you can join the Together music community as they usher in the new year to the endlessly deep musical crates of Dorchester’s golden child, KON. Whatever you think you want this NYE, KON’s got it: Disco and House? Yep! Funk? Can one become one of the most revered crate-diggers without bringing that funk? We think not.
[1222 Comm. Ave., Allston. 9pm/21+/$25. @GreatScottROCK. greatscottboston.com]
