While it's hard to believe, New Year's Eve is just around the corner. If you haven't made your plans yet, it's not too late! Here are the best New Year's Eve celebrations around New Orleans to send 2017 out with a bang:
If your idea of a good New Year's Eve celebration is getting dressed to the nines and dancing the night away, you won't want to miss the New Year's Eve celebration at The Southern Hotel. Groovy 7, one of the best party bands in Louisiana, will set the mood with your favorite live music covers ranging from Motown to today's hits. Ticket prices start at $35. Although Springs at River Chase residents are a just short drive from The Southern Hotel, party guests are encouraged to play it safe and spend the night.
Send 2017 out with a bang (literally) by taking in the most spectacular New Year's Eve fireworks show that the New Orleans area has to offer. If casual is more your speed, you'll enjoy the outdoor setting, bonfire, music, and champagne at the Land-O-Pines Family Campground leading up to the fireworks display. Campers and cabins are available to rent for the night starting at $110.
Celebrate New Year's Eve at the biggest party in New Orleans! More than 3,000 people are expected to attend the annual New Year's Eve Gala at the Hyatt Regency New Orleans hotel. Food buffets and open bars will be available all night long, and nine incredible bands, DJs and live performers will keep the crowd entertained. To mix things up, a casino zone will be added to this year's event. Ticket prices start at $99.99. Don't want to make the drive back to your Springs at Fremaux Town Center apartment after the party? You can stay the night at the hotel for an additional cost.
Looking for a place to enjoy a festive meal before you head to your New Year's Eve party? Come enjoy a three-course meal for $85 per person at Palmettos on the Bayou on New Year's Eve. Your dinner will begin in the Cypress Bar as you sip champagne and enjoy hors d'oeuvres. You'll then be seated for your three-course meal, which includes chef-inspired dishes such as Oyster Fettuccine and Black Angus Prime Rib.
