The Sayers Club
With past (unannounced) musical guests like Prince, Estelle, and Nikka Costa, this super-exclusive speakeasy most definitely has something special up its NYE sleeve. You can count on celebrities canoodling in corners of the dark sbe venue, and the house master mixologist will be on the premises for yummy out-of-the-box concoctions. The dress code is effortless swank, but don't drop the ball for the ball-drop—there's no time like the present to invest in some eclectic new wares. How cute is this Olympia Le-Tan "In Cold Blood" clutch?

KCRW is sponsoring this shindig, which means music buffs will eat their hearts out and dance their legs off to world-renowned DJs' spinnings (they're even covering the pool!). The vibe will be more la vie bohème than Hills haven, so swill some champs undisturbed by desperados, and forget your woes in our beach babe gone badass stylings. (Doesn't this Phillip Lim dress whisper, psst your closet deserves a new dress?).
Where: 1819 Ocean Avenue (At Pico Boulevard); 310-260-7500.
How: Tickets are $175 per person, available at The Viceroy.

Even though the invite says "shaken, not stirred," we have a feeling the Skybar will still be stir crazy—and plenty of dance floor shaking will definitely be done to tunes by a special guest DJ. With one of the best views in the city, fireworks (hopefully both kinds!) will be par for the Sunset Boulevard course. And you better get gussied up for this Bond-themed bash! It's black tie-optional, which means bring on the glitz, glam, and amp up that double-oh-seven sex appeal for twenty twelve!
Where: 8440 Sunset Boulevard (Near Olive Drive); 323-650-8999.
How: $175 per person, available at Morgans Hotel Group.
