The 5 Best Ways to Celebrate NYE

From creative “ball drops” to memorable outings, there are plenty of ways to say goodbye to the year in style. 

  1. Make your way to Sloppy Joe’s Bar for a full day of fun. Enjoy live music starting at noon. As the clock gets closer to midnight, make your way outside to watch the annual Dropping of the Conch Shell.
  2. Schooner Wharf has its own version of this NYE tradition. This all-day affair kicks off at 11 a.m. with phenomenal live music that goes all day leading up to the main attraction. Step outside to watch the Lowering of the Pirate Wench at midnight, complete with a cannon shot.
  3. Reserve your spot on one of three sunset sails from Fury Cat. Chase one last sunset on the lively Commotion on the Ocean, or enjoy a romantic end to the evening on the Champagne Cruise.
  4. Head over to Mallory Square for the last Sunset Celebration of the year. This nightly festivity includes live music, street performers, vendors, and more. Make sure you get there early to find the perfect viewing spot.
  5. If you’re looking for more of a laidback evening, grab dinner at one of the incredible nearby restaurants. Cafe Sole is known for pan-seared hogfish, while El Siboney Restaurant is perfect for those craving Cuban cuisine. For more recommendations, stop by the front desk.
