Party Like a Rockstar

Let's consider your options for New Year's Eve.  Here's how I see it, you can stay home, go to a friend's home, or you can go out.  If you are going to go out, the most stylist option is to party in the New Year at a hotel party.  That way, once you have sung the last notes of Auld Lang Syne you can dash up to your room for your own private party...or just go to sleep.  Let me take some of the research out of your NYE planning.  Here are my top three picks of hotel parties throughout the city.

#1 POV W Hotel, Rooftop Party  Rooftop bar overlooking the city's best landmarks, live DJs, open bar runs from 8 to 10pm, art installations by Alex Turco, surprise party favors, and champagne toast at midnight

#2 The Washington Plaza Hotel, James Bond themed Gala  Open bar, live DJs, international buffet, 007 martinis (shaken, not stirred), and, naturally, plenty Bond Girls

#3 Grand Hyatt, Downtown Countdown  D.C.'s biggest balloon drop, open bar, The Riot Act Comedy Showcase, and, most importantly, Everclear will be performing!

How will you ring in the new year?



  1. I'd love to have a New Year's Eve party. I think I might but my space isn't big enough for one. Hopefully I can talk a friend into having it at her place ;) I'll admit. I'm a user hahahaha

    Visit my blog!

    p.s. If you follow my blog I'll do so in return.

  2. I'm going to our capital city open-air event .. hope it doesn't rain! x

  3. @ Amanda, Hopefully you can work something out. If not, just have everyone to your place. Sometimes it's fun to be in a smaller place.

    @ Gertrude, good luck with the weather! That sounds like fun! HNY!

  4. going to a house party that is only couple blocks away from my house, def not driving and drinking, I hate doign that

  5. The James Bond themed party definitely sounds fun!! Nothing like welcoming in the New Year with a little glamour!

    The chocolate covered confection is kind of like italian fruitcake, called Panforte. It's dried fruit and nuts, and it can either be chocolate covered (my fave, of course!!) or it can just have powdered sugar on top. It's a food that dates all the way back to the Middle Ages! :D I'm glad you enjoyed the pictures! :D

    Hope you're having a great holiday! x
