This New Year's Eve, New York City is going to be popping with the hottest parties. These spots have hours of open bars, music from the best DJs, champagne toasts, amazing interiors, breathtaking views, and--if you're really lucky--celebrity sightings. Ditch the losers who will be huddled in the cold for hours for a glimpse of the ball drop. Start the new year off right at any one of these venues that will have plenty to drink, room to dance, and make memories that will last long after the party ends.
Dream Downtown: Located in the upscale Meatpacking District on 16th sreet, it is the perfect combination of modernity and luxury, with incredible views of the Manhattan skyline. An ideal spot to bring a date, where the two of you can gaze at the sparkling city as the old year falls away.
Pacha NYC is among the greatest house music clubs in the world. They are known for consistently bringing the best house music acts in the industry. Saturday Nov. 16th will be no different. Pacha is playing no games and bringing in Brooklyn’s own house music king, Victor Calderone along with special guest Belgium DJ/Producer Marco Bailey! If you’re a fan of house music this is a night you won’t want to miss!
Victor Calderone is one of the most well-known and accomplished DJ’s in the house music scene. When he plays in his hometown of NYC at Pacha he holds no prisoners. In the past, the Brooklyn native has been known to get on the decks around 4AM and rock the crowd all the way to 9AM, or later. At the end of it all, party-goers walk out into daylight having just experienced musical greatness and memories they will never forget. This time however, he’ll be accompanied by a special guest DJ with an impressive resume himself, Marco Bailey.
Known for bringing a taste of Ibizia and the UK to NYC, Sankeys is at it again with their new instalment of UK’s award-winning Tribal Sessions.
Originally being a facepainting party where Sankeys founder, David Vincent, personally painted the faces of all patrons, Tribal Sessions has since been a mainstay in the UK. The philosophy behind Tribal Sessions is ‘Forward thinking music without prejudice’. Staying true to that motto you can find nothing but an underground scene with lots of hard hitting beats and a crowd that is there for the music.
To help kick off Tribal Sessions this Friday, France's own Dan Ghenacia and Shonky will be gracing the audience with some of their beats that have been pushing them into the forefront of house music.
New York is home to both the mainstream and those who prefer life off the beaten path. In so much, Brooklyn, home to hipsters, and many things antiestablishment, is also a breeding ground for microbreweries, a trend that is sweeping the East Coast and the rest of the country. Sarah and Giancarlo Annese run beerunion.com, a blog about craft beer, and are craft beer experts. Both have turned their passion from tasting beer and writing into fanning the flame of a movement bringing brewers, distributors, and tasters together. Despite the emphasis on local sourcing, microbreweries have an established foothold in the local economy and are developing a larger consumer base. Giancarlo and Sarah selected beer for this year's NYC Craft Beer Festival: Winter Harvest, coming up on November 23 and 24th. We were able to ask Sarah and Giancarlo a few questions about their passion for local beer, and they kindly took the time to fill us in on the virtues of microbreweries, and where they might be going.
