New Years Eve in Midtown West
Just a few blocks from the “center of the universe,” residents of the Midtown West apartments at 555TEN are in a prime location to take in the New Year’s celebrations. Rather than joining the crowd and commotions of Times Square, residents of the 555TEN luxury rentals have plenty of other top spots to choose from. Whether you are looking for a relaxing night of jazz and cozy cocktails or are hoping to dance the night away with your nearest and dearest, the options are endless when it comes to the Midtown West neighborhood. And, as an added bonus, just as the clock strikes midnight, residents living on the higher floors at 555TEN can watch the ball drop from the comfort of home.
The Press Lounge – 653 11th Avenue
Venture to The Press Lounge and experience one of the most seductive, unobstructed rooftop views in all the city. As you appreciate the sights of the Manhattan skyline and Hudson River, enjoy the chic décor and beautiful jazz music—just loud enough to keep the party going. The chill ambiance certainly brings in a stylish, upscale crowd. Step out to the large outdoor area, and you’ll be provided with a cozy wool blanket, while nestled up by a heat lamp and the crackling fire pit. Before you head up to the lounge, make a reservation downstairs at PRINT—a leading restaurant featuring a New American menu of seasonal, sustainable cuisine.
The Copacabana – 268 West 47th Street
If you are looking for something with a bit more calorie-burning energy, Copacabana is the choice for you. Just steps away from Times Square, this nightclub features four floors of dancing and an eclectic mix of Latin and hip-hop vibes. The DJs are always open to requests—as long as the dance floor is filled, and the bodies are shaking. There is certainly a reason why this venue has stood the test of time and is perfect for a cosmopolitan New Year’s celebration.
B.B. King Blues Club & Grill – 237 West 42nd Street
Searching for live music? Then this stunning mahogany bar just off Times Square boasts similar vibes to the House of Blues. The inviting atmosphere always has live performances and often plays tributes to music legends like the Beatles. With a wide range of food options and an impressive selection of beers to choose from, you won’t be disappointed as you soak in the music. Be sure to get through the doors early, as seats are “first come, first served,” but there is truly not a bad place to watch the show in this house. Sip on the crowd-favorite Blues Brew as you enjoy the tunes and celebrate a new year with some serious joy.
