UC_LittleJoe_NewYrs_MASTER_LAYERED_CROPPED_2Perhaps you’re planning a quiet night at home.  Or maybe you’ve got a kickin’ party to attend (our invitation must’ve gotten lost in the mail…).  But if you don’t already have plans for New Year’s Eve, here’s our annual round-up of options for ringing in 2016 Cystal City-style:


Volo: will have you “dancing into 2016” with DJ Jonny Dutch.  Open until 3:00am.

TOP – That Other Place: Is offering the only live music we could find in town – with Wendy Owens and Renegade playing 9:00pm-12:30am.  Door prizes, party favors and complimentary champagne toast at Midnight.  Bar open until 1:00am.

Hand+Foot: Drink special: spiked hot cocoa (I got lost in how amazing it sounded and forgot to write down the ingredients, but trust me…), with complimentary champagne toast at Midnight.  Open until 1:00am.

Three Birds: New menu debuted this week – and there are still a few dinner slots open for reservations.  Complimentary champagne toast at Midnight.  Bar will remain open until 3:00am.

Tony R’s: still has some dinner slots open (between 4-5 and after 8:00pm).  Bar will likely remain open until Midnight (as long as there are still patrons).

Bottles & Corks: Open until 9:00pm.

Fazzary’s: Open until 6:00pm.

No matter how you get downtown, unless you have a DD or your own personal Uber driver, keep Vet’s Taxi (962-TAXI) in mind for your return trip (they’re operating 24 hours).

Here’s to a safe and happy celebration, no matter what you have planned!
