Five of Miami's Most Expensive New Year's Eve 2012 Parties

With all the talk of Occupy this and Occupy that, people have been a little hesitant to flaunt their wealth in 2011.

Richer, please! It's time to put that P.C. bullshit to bed and ring in the New Year as your great-grandfather, John D. Rockefeller, would have wanted. You know, by spending obscene amounts of money for mere minutes of intangible pleasure.

This is Miami and it's time to let your millionaire flag fly like you're majority owner of the New Jersey Nets and married to Beyoncé. And we're not talking about a couple hundred for general admission to some third-rate hotel's open bar.

See the cut for Miami's most expensive New Year's Eve parties.

5. Rev. Run. Saturday, December 31, 9 p.m., Shore Club Hotel, 1901 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-3100; Tickets via The Run-D.M.C. co-founder might be the biggest bargain from this bunch. But for $5,000, you still get one hell of party, featuring a live DJ set by the hip-hop legend, a bed at the pool-area SkyBar for 12 people, three bottles of Grey Goose vodka, and three bottles of Perrier- Jouët Grand Brut.

4. Axwell. Saturday, December 31, 9 p.m., Fontainebleau Miami Beach, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2000; Tickets via If you always wanted to be part of a Mafia, just buy into the brotherhood. For $25,000, you and 15 friends can play the part of Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso while a real Mafia member, Axwell, spins a few feet from your table. The Swedish Side Stage table also includes all the booze needed to make it seem like you're actually partying in Sweden, including four magnum bottles each of Belvedere and Dom Perignon.
