The Best Ways to Spend NYE 2018 in DTLA

Posted in DTLA, NYE in DTLA

We know you and 2017 have been through a lot together but it’s come time to say goodbye. There’s no reason to feel sad. In fact, we think you should celebrate harder than you’ve ever celebrated before. Luckily, living in the City of Angels makes it possible to ring in a new year right. While there is certainly no shortage of killer ways to experience NYE in DTLA, not all of them are created equal. At WREN’s luxury apartments in South Park, there’s been talk of which parties are going to be the best this year. Here is our list of the top events!

Bootie LA New Year’s Eve 2018 ($20+)

At 9 p.m. on New Year’s Eve, Bootie Mashup will be taking over the Resident in the Arts District. There will be DJs, dance crew performances, a champagne toast, and even free mashup CDs.

If you want to spend NYE in DTLA with thousands of other party-going Angelenos, make your way to the gorgeous Grand Park at 8 p.m. N.Y.E.L.A. will feature live music, dancing, food, photo booths, and a countdown to midnight projected onto a wall of City Hall. One thing to note: No alcohol will be allowed on the premises.

Prohibition NYE ($175)

How would you like to countdown to the new year like they did during the prohibition era (minus the drinks being illegal, of course)? Starting at 9 p.m., Prohibition NYE fills the Ticket Concourse at Union Station with DTLA-ers dressed in their finest 1920s garb. You won’t believe what a ticket gets you:

  • Open bar (beer, champagne, and signature cocktails)
  • Burlesque show
  • Live jazz
  • DJ set

There’s even a 60-foot ball drop at midnight. It’s a delightful and modernly classic way to enjoy NYE in DTLA!

Dita Von Teese’s NYE Gala ($49.50 to $225))

Beers, and tacos, and dumplings! Oh, my! Angel City Brewery will be hosting No Cover New Years, a malty, sudsy, laid-back kind of way to experience the new year. Live music doesn’t begin until 8 p.m., but you can start imbibing at 12 p.m. Just don’t overdo it — you don’t want to miss the champagne ale toast at midnight.
