Out with the old, in with the gold. This year’s been a doozy, and now—thankfully—it’s time to put it behind us. The future awaits, and it’s called 2019. What will it bring? No one knows. What we do know is that New Year’s Eve is set to be a real banger. Whether you’re in L.A., Miami, or New York City, we’ve cherry-picked six events for you to sink your teeth into. Ready, set, celebrate.
Ring in the New Year at SIXTY Beverly Hills with a feast and a fête. Start the evening downstairs at Caulfield’s Bar and Dining Room, where we’ll be cheffing up decadently festive dishes like lobster bisque, filet mignon, and pink champagne cheesecake. The full menu is available for your perusal here. After fueling up, head upstairs to Above 60, our rooftop lounge, where you’ll be treated to an open bar and sounds by Bradley Gentz. There will be a photobooth to document the evening and a midnight toast when the clock strikes 12. For more details, click here.
Remember Dita Von Teese? While not in the press as much much as she was in the Marilyn Mason-era early aughts, the burlesque dancer still delights. This New Year’s Eve, she’ll be slipping into—and out of-—“something a little more comfortable” at the Orpheum Theater in Downtown L.A. There, on that historic stage, Teese and a team of fellow burlesque all-stars will twirl, slink, and dazzle your cares away. Tickets available here .
It’s about to go off at Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel. Our Nautilus Cabana Club will host two seatings for a NYE feast, one at 7 p.m. and the other at 9 p.m. Reservations, which are available here, include access to the open bar, which kicks off at 9 p.m. and runs through a champagne toast at midnight.

NEW YORK CITY
Make Believe, our dreamy pink lounge atop SIXTY LES, has been pulling out all the stops this year and, on the last day of 2018, they’re going out with a bang.
