No matter where you go or what you do, don’t forget to wear comfy shoes and hydrate. We’ll see you on the other side.

Top picks…

Bring Dat Ass New Year’s Eve with Toribio at Black Flamingo

Party Papi Toribio always knows how to pull on the heartstrings when it comes to his song selections, so when he drops the midnight song at Black Flamingo this New Year’s Eve, we know it’s going to hit, and hit hard! We’re sure it will be one of many bangers Toribio has up his sleeve at the Bring Dat Ass party where he’ll be playing from start to finish. His brand of house music is highly musical, soulful and, ultimately, makes you want to come together and move.  

Italomatic & Felipe from BK at Milagrosa

If you want to feel all your feelings this New Year’s Eve then Milagrosa has the party for you. Italomatic will be taking over the speakeasy’s audiophile system with party residents Andi, Facets, and Rok One playing their favorite rare and moody italo, freestyle, new wave, synth, `80s, and weirdo electronic records. They will be joined behind the decks by Milagrosa’s own Felipe from BK.

New Year’s Eve with Planet B, Very J, and For Future’s Sake at Jupiter Disco

If you’re looking for the kind of party where your head is about to explode from the deep cuts you’re hearing over the soundsystem, then Jupiter Disco has the party for you.. Three of New York’s best underground, heavy hitting diggers are stepping into the booth this New Year’s Eve with sets from Planet B (Grand Street Sounds), Very J (Duty Free Records), and For Future’s Sake (A1 Records).
