There are great venues that have parties for all ages and perfect for families. New York has something for everyone;kids, grownups, and teens all looking to party like rock stars. And Joonbug knows where it's all going down on December 31st.

The kitchen will be serving mouth-watering appetizers from 9 to 11pm, with two extra hours of sweets to make the evening special. Non-alcoholic options are available for the underage or the teetotaler among you, but cocktails and drinks will be flowing the whole night if that's your style. As with other venues, a DJ will be on hand spinning tunes, with live coverage of the ball drop and a complimentary champagne toast, but you can spend the evening with a more sophisticated flair, eating and drinking beneath elegant chandeliers, having amazing conversation with your crew.
