Ringing in the New Year 2017

DENVER – No one said 2016 was going to be easy. After all of the hurdles, the ups, the downs, and all the rocky road in between, it is due time to dust off our dancing shoes and end 2016 on a high that will carry us into a new and hopeful 2017. We have gathered the list of the best places to spend the last hours of 2016 where you can move, groove, mingle, drink, and devour the best food, tunes, and cocktails in Denver.

When the New Year’s ball drops, you will want to welcome it with all of the pomp and circumstance of one of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s wildly glam parties- the parties that stained the 1920s with the joy of lace, fringe, feathered flappers and sky-high top hats. While top hats are out and all that glitters with gold is in, the style and grace of the 1920s will be ringing through the bars and clubs of downtown Denver as 2017 rolls in. Whether you stay warm with furs worthy of Mae West as you make your way to one of the many galas, speakeasies, or Roaring 20s parties, or dance the night away at Adrift’s Mermaid Ball; or catch the eye of your midnight kiss in the brightest of reds, you will surely find yourself among friends, good music, great drinks, and delicious treats as 2016 comes to a close.
