But don’t worry — we’ve got this! We narrowed the list down to four of D.C.’s best parties, made sure there's plenty of room for you and your pals, and whipped up the perfect party outfit for each one. From fancy soirées to jazzy get-togethers to rock-'n'-roll dance parties, you'll find your ideal celebration here — and we even chose a New Year’s resolution for you: Start planning earlier for next year's bash.
For the hopeless procrastinator (who's reading this at 4 p.m. on December 31) or commitment-phobic partier, we’ve got an 11th-hour option just for you: D.C.’s favorite rooftop is hosting a bash and selling tickets at the door on the night of the event. At the W hotel’s Grandeur & Glamour New Year’s Eve Affair at P.O.V., you’ll enjoy DJs, party favors, a Champagne toast at midnight, and that famous view of our favorite city. Tickets are $100 at the door, or $75 if purchased in advance here. Limited bottle service seating is available by reservation only.
