As much as I like to take my holidays one at a time, when it comes to New Year’s Eve, you have to start planning before Christmas! There are lots of fun and festive ways to send off 2013 and ring in 2014 around Cleveland.
Here are just a few:
Cleveland Rocks NYE 2014 – Electric Ice
This is a free festival open to all on Public Square, sponsored by Ohio Homecoming. Hometown comedian Drew Carey will be back in town to host the festivities. There will also be fireworks, live music, food trucks, a beer garden, and much more.
Windows on the River New Year’s Eve 2013
Three banquet rooms filled with food, entertainment, fun, and some beautiful views of downtown Cleveland will help you ring in the new year. General admission tickets are $100 and include open bar, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, and a champagne toast. VIP admission tickets are $150 and add admission to the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, top shelf alcohol in the VIP lounge, a swag bag and more. For more information and to purchase tickets, click here.
Brew Year’s Eve
If champagne isn’t your thing, check out Great Lakes Brewing Co.’s annual Brew Year’s Eve bash. There will be a DJ and live music, a photo booth, and, of course, lots of beer! Tickets are $60 and include heavy hors d’oeuvres and 3 drink tickets. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
Dining in Cleveland can be a fabulous experience any night, but a lot of our restaurants bring their A-game for New Year’s Eve.
Pura Vida has dinner seatings from 4-10pm, and a house party starting at 10pm with open bar, appetizers, music, and a breakfast brunch. Cost for the house party is $125 per person (you save $25 if you had earlier dinner reservations). Click here for more information.
Crop Bistro is offering a six-course tasting menu for $95 per person, with a champagne toast at midnight. The lavish elegance of Crop is a beautiful way to ring in 2014!
The Greenhouse Tavern will serve an impressive 11-course New Year’s Eve dinner, with reservations accepted between 5-9:45pm. Cost is $99 per person. There are optional beverage pairings and a champagne toast, too. Click here for more information.
No matter how you ring in 2014, be safe! Here’s a handy list of cab companies in the area.
