Comments Off on Ringing in the Year of the Water Rabbit in New York City with Carmel Limos

The year of the tiger is coming to an end, and We can’t wait to welcome 2023, the year of the rabbit, which symbolizes peace, calm, rejuvenation, and new hopes. 

In New York City, New Year’s Eve is the most awaited time of the year. Events and parties happen at almost every block. New Yorkers have the grandest celebration in the world at Times Square and other iconic locations. 

Everyone in the Big Apple is up to something, from hot shindigs and pool parties to date nights and game nights. However, New York’s traffic is as famous as its party scene. Road rage grows multifold on New York’s little crossroads, which is a huge concern for anyone in the city.

New Year’s Eve falls on a Saturday this year, which is exciting for most of us. Restaurants get overbooked, Broadway runs full-house shows, and pubs and party houses burgeon with revelers from within New York and tourists. 

Rooftops buzz with music and lights while the streets dazzle in anticipation of the New Year’s countdown. Fireworks happen across the city from Times Square to Coney Island. So whether you want to kickstart 2023 with a bang or keep it peaceful, the city caters to every aspiration.

Carmel Limos has extended our service network across the city to cater to the spiking party demand and make life easier on New Year’s Eve. The Carmel Limos New York City mobile app is geared for peak bookings, including multipoint pickup/drop off, airport transfers, hourly waiting services, roundtrips, and more. 

We also offer special limo services for date nights, New York Limousine parties, birthday celebrations, and family reunions. Please visit the Carmel Limos website for more information.

To prevent the NYE chaos, we’ve put together this curated list of the most happening New Year’s Eve parties and events in New York City. 

If you’re wondering how to get to these parties, download the Carmel Limousines app and leave the rest to us. 

Magical Events for your New Year’s Eve Celebrations 

Welcome the Year in Jazz!

For all Jazz lovers, this event is a true masterpiece in Harlem, the birthplace of Jazz. First, head to Minton’s Playhouse, a legendary landmark for Bebop and contemporary Jazz. 

The Minton all-star band is showcasing an epic turn-up with high-caliber live music. In addition, a full dinner and wine menu will be served at the venue, while a 1 am to 4 am late hang session will be conducted, preceded by a midnight champagne toast. Tracks include top picks from 560 tracks like Bohemia After Dark, Goin’ to Minton’s, Wizard of the Vibes, Rose Room, Stardust, and Memoirs of You.

Remember to book your Carmel Limos ride in advance on our mobile app to reach the venue in style. 

Bathtub Gin New Year’s Eve Party 2023

If you’re 21 YO or above, don’t forget to swing by Bathtub Gin at 132 9th Avenue for an exotic NYE party. The party house is ideally located behind the Stone Street Coffee Company.

NYC’s coolest party hosts invite you to a night of illicit revelry while offering five-star perks and amenities at the event. The extensive dinner menu will include delicious nibbles and hors d’oeuvres. In addition, the drinks menu at the 4-hour premium open bar will include craft cocktails and beverages. 

A live DJ will spin the hottest Hip-Hop, pop, and techno mash-up soundtracks before leading guests to the live midnight countdown. 

The organizers will treat the guests to a complimentary champagne toast. In addition, the VIP package will include more drinks and reserved seating with bottle service.

Bathtub Gin is a lively den for party loves that offers a highly energetic, retro, and sensual vibe. The centerpiece is a clawfoot bathtub that stands as an iconic symbol of freedom and celebration. The show-stopping burlesque performances at the venue often use the bathtub as a prop. 

The damask-themed wallpaper and dining area and the ornate light fixtures elevate the earthy vibes of the warm wood finishes. Leather studded barstools complete the dynamic and sultry theme while adding a touch of’90s nostalgia. If you wish to stay beyond the midnight celebrations, we recommend booking the Carmel Limos NYC waiting services to ensure you get home safely.

Birdland Big Band with Special Guest Performance

Another icing on the cake for Jazz lovers on New Year’s Eve is the Birdland Big Band, directed by David DeJesus. This band is known for its thrilling performances in Jazz, funk, Latino, Brazilian, and world music. Their shows are always sold out because of the unique music experience they deliver.

On New Year’s Eve, the band performs at the Birdland Jazz Club, 315 W 44th St., from 8 pm onwards. This Jazz music experience will be exciting, considering the saxophonist David DeJesus’ legacy since the late ’90s. David’s performances include collaborating with the Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, the Dizzy Gillespie Alumni All-Stars, and the Mingus Big Band. 

In Latin Jazz and Salsa, David’s iconic partnerships with Larry Harlow, Ruben Blades, Gilberto Santa Rosa, and Tito Rodriguez Jr. stand out. Currently, David leads the Birdland Big Band, which garnered Grammy nominations for the Legendary Ron Carter’s Great Big Band and Bobby Sanabria Big Band.

Book Carmel Limos’ Multipoint pickup service if you plan to attend this performance with family or friends. With our multipoint service, you can save significantly on NYE prices for getting around the city.

230 Fifth Rooftop 2023 New Year’s Eve

New York’s largest indoor and outdoor hybrid bar is hosting its most anticipated event on 31st December. The doors open at 8 pm, and what you’ll experience afterward will be unforgettable. The rooftop of good times offers a wide range of drinks and an extensive food menu. 

The expansive rooftop club spans over 33,000 sq. feet. and houses two dance floors and DJ booths. The great vibes of the place and the breathtaking views of New York City’s skyline are not only Instagram-worthy but the best experience one can have. In addition, the guests will directly view the fireworks at the Empire State Building from this prime Manhattan location. 

Two live DJs will play non-stop dance tracks, including trance, rock, pop, punk, and classic 80s, to dance the night away. In addition, premium alcohol will pour through the night and include concoctions of Absolut, Tito’s, Grey Goose, Johnnie Walker Black, Bombay Sapphire, Ketel One, Patron, Bacardi, and Jack Daniel’s.

Getting tipsy on an eventful night is no surprise. However, booking our drop-off services on the Carmel Limos NYC app will ensure you reach home safe and sound in the brand-new year.

New Year’s Eve Roller Skate Celebration

If dancing on the floor is not your style, we recommend the Roller Skate celebrations at The Skate and Dance Studio, 1219 Quentin Road, Brooklyn. DJ Freedom and Queen Martina will present this event, where DJ Freedom will spin R&B, House Music, Nu-Disco, and “Skate Breaks” for retro-style skating. 

Tracks of the old school, electro, funk, classic, hip-hop, and Paradise Garage will be mashed into an exciting and refreshing mix. 

The beautiful open space with hardwood flooring in good condition is apt for skaters. In addition, the wall-to-wall mirrors and floor-to-ceiling windows give you the space needed to enjoy the skating experience. 

The outdoor patio is great for smoking or chatting with a friend after an enjoyable skate-dancing exercise. The disco lights will elevate the experience, while the fog machines complement the ambiance. 

Top Restaurants near the Skate and Dance Studio

Head to Michael’s of Brooklyn for a classic American meal, including bacon, baked clams, and fried or grilled Calamari. Then, switch to an Italian delicacy like Mozzarella Carrozza, Mushrooms & Polenta, or Stuffed Eggplant Rollatini.

Alternatively, you can head to Lola’s Mexican Restaurant for a quick bite before the Roller Skate Celebration. We recommend the Shrimp Burrito, Quesadilla, Flautas, Enchiladas, Camarones Al Ajillo, Pork Chops, and Steak Ranchero.

Another local favorite is Joseph Dream Burger, serving the juiciest lamb and chicken burgers. We recommend their Classic Fried Chicken Bucket Combo, Moroccan Cigars, Steak Wrap, Onion Rings, and Zucchini sticks. 

Gatsby’s Fireworks Yacht Party

Get aboard the Cornucopia Majesty “Gatsby’s Yacht” at Pier 40 for a starlit celebration in true Jay Gatsby style. The yacht party boasts of performances by Brooklyn Duo, a Live DJ, the Prem Open bar & Midnight Champagne, and Fireworks. The luminant city skyline provides the perfect backdrop for the mega yacht party. 

The features available on the Yacht include:

  • 4HR Premium Open Bar serves Tito’s Vodka, Bacardi, Johnnie Walker, Tanqueray, Jack Daniels, House wines, and classic beers.

Garden of Cosmic Delights – Fandi Mata

This New Year’s Eve, Fandi Mata will join creative forces with the House of Yes to create an eclectic fusion of music and spectacle in the heart of Brooklyn.

This out-of-the-world cosmic experience will include a journey through the universe with an extraordinary mix of feast, fantasy, ritual, and celebration. The team offers a creative curation of their culinary offerings, live electronic music, and performance art, including cosmic cabaret, circus spectacles, acrobatics, and other dance party performances. 

The theme is intergalactic love which is perfect to begin the New Year in all its glory.

The dress code includes themes and styles representing galactic glamor, floral fantasy, celestial chic, metallic magic and sparkles, alien elegance, intergalactic jungle, stardust sartorial charm, wild galaxy nature, space gods and goddesses, space fantasy, glittering nebulas, reflection, and rebirth.
