Miami's New Year's Eve 2016 Party Guide

Start mapping out your New Year's Eve.
Start mapping out your New Year's Eve.

We're strange creatures, we humans. Each time our planet completes another circle around the sun, we put on sparkly clothes, drink too much Champagne, and try to find someone to connect lips with. Is it a ritual that makes sense? Not really. But it's a tradition, and there's no place that does it quite like Miami.

2015 might not have been your year. Maybe you lost a toe or farted in a job interview. But 2016 is nigh, baby, and Thursday, December 31, is your chance to turn it all around. Check out our 2016 NYE party guide. It has everything from free cover to $100,000 VIP tables (actually, though), so you're bound to find your cup of tea. Especially if you like alcohol in your tea (looking at you, Grandma). 

We'll continue to update this list as New Year's Eve gets closer, so if you don't see your party on here, take a deep breath, run to the kitchen and grab a banana, then send us an email at music@miaminewtimes.com. We'll add you in.
