We get it. You’ve slacked on NYE plans in a subconscious attempt to avoid the often most overrated night of the year. Or maybe you’ve decided consciously to boycott all things 2016 by staying in. Makes total sense to us.
But like any true New Yorker, we know you still want to know your options so you can make a game time decision if needed. So here’s a list from our Concierge team of their top 5 last minute options to ring in the New Year, based on a few of their fave go-to spots from this year.
Adoro Lei - "Trendy Downtown Gem"
Okay, maybe we’re biased. But only because Adoro Lei happens to be a unique balance of so many things we love – trendy, good energy, great food, awesome service, intimate atmosphere. And none of the things we don’t – copious crowds, pretentious service, and overpriced everything. Their NYE party should be no different.
