New Year’s Eve 2015: Top {Hoboken Girl} Party Picks

Written by:

I know it’s Christmas Eve, but hey, I’m a planner. New Year’s Eve is that little holiday right around the corner that always gets pushed to the back burner until after Christmas/Hanukkah, but this year — trying to get it together a bit earlier {if not for me, for you!}. That is, if you don’t want to try some of these Alternative New Years Options. That being said — here are our top picks for a New Year’s Eve 2015 party in and around Hoboken…depending on what type of evening you’re aiming for:

 

1. Fun Neighborhood Ambiance {with an Interesting Twist!}: Finnegan’s

Finnegans hoboken

 Finnegan’s is hosting a $70 entry for their NYE party — they’re having a studio 54 Costume Contest + prizes all night. 

 

2. I Want a City Vibe, but Let’s Stay in Hoboken {and Dress Up!}: Lulu’s

  Lulus-Masquerade2014-4x6

The W does it again — Masquerade Ball to ring in 2015. Sounds like a fun night to me!

 

3. I Want to Impress My Date {and Get Fancy Schmancy}: Battello in Jersey City

If you’ve never been to Battello — GO. It’s the newly renovated boathouse on the water in Jersey City {also where I’m getting married this coming summer}…and it is fabulous. Battello is hosting a black tie affair at $175 per person, and I can guarantee you’ll enjoy yourself + the food + the amazing NYC views!

 

4. Young Crowd NYE Party: Wicked Wolf

At 8:00pm, WW will have a 5 hour Top Shelf Open Bar, a full dinner buffet, a complimentary champagne toast at midnight, lots of fun party favors, and DJ Richie Rocks!

 

5. Yummy Food, Good Vibes: Clinton Social

 The Clinton Social is a great neighborhood bar and restaurant {sisters with the Madison} — and they’ll be having an open bar + hot & cold buffet + champagne toast from 9pm – 1am for $93.

 

6. I Don’t Want to Pay a Cover: Ale House

For the indecisive non-planner, the Ale House is your one-stop shop where you can hang at a bar for NYE but still not pay and arm and a leg. They have pool and shuffle board, plus a jukebox to keep you in control of your music selection.

 

7. Kid’s NYE Party: Pilsener Haus and Biergarten

From 4pm to 8pm the Biergarten will be hosting their 2nd annual Kid’s New Years Eve party. $10 per adult cover and $5 per child (includes kids meal, kids dessert, and drink!) Also includes kids band and entertainment…and then at 9pm, (21 and older ONLY) $20 per adult to reserve a section of the restaurant with a table (parties of 10 or more) that includes a sausage sampler and free pitcher. At midnight, they will be serving traditional Hungarian Goulash soup. Call 201.683.5465 to make your reservation!

Save a little moolah and dine at Onieals — $20 for champagne and hanging out, and then dinner is separate. The food and cozy ambiance will not disappoint!

This dinner delight is hosting 3 seatings — which get progressively more expensive the later they are…as well as having food available for catering/delivery to your house. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Well there you have it. Our top picks for the night that most people complain about and others embrace…

Regardless of what you do, have a safe & fun night!
