It’s fitting that the last party of the year is usually the biggest. All over the world we gather in restaurants, bars and clubs to count down to midnight and welcome in the new year with those closest to us. In Montreal we party better than most which means we have a great line up of New Year’s Eve parties to chose from. Here’s 3 choices that sit at the top our list this year.

Grand Bazaar 2016

JS 1This is one of the most hotly anticipated parties of the season. Held at Le Studio in Griffintown, Grand Bazaar kicks of at 9pm and goes well into the wee hours of the morning. More than 600 people are expected to be there drinking and eating food catered from Lucille’s, Ryu and Dolcetto. Top Montreal DJs, Toddy Flores and Jojo Flores take care of the music all night long, make sure we don’t miss a beat. This party is masterminded by the people behind the Tomahawk Group, Brahm Mauer (Sugar Ball, Kids 4 Kids), the Drysdale Group and David Dayan (Ryu, École Privé) so you know it will be epic. For those looking for something bohemian chic, this one’s for you. Tickets available for $150

Music will be provided by Hilly and a few special guests and the $25 (!!) admission includes hors-oeuvres, oysters and a glass of bubbly. Dress code for the night is semi formal and because this is École you can expect a good time. Click the link for more info.

Ciao 2016

CiaoFor those of you looking for a relatively quieter option (and please use quiet very, very loosely), Dolcetto is hosting Ciao 2016, a New Years Eve dinner. You can see from the menu provided above that it will be a feast to end all feasts. $100.00 gets you a welcome cocktail, the 5 course meal and half a bottle of Procsseco. Surrounded by beautiful decor in romantic Old Montreal, the setting couldn’t be more perfect for this New Year’s Eve celebration! For more information or to reserve, visit their website here.

Have a happy and safe New Year’s Eve!
