Ring in 2020 with thousands of fellow Angelenos at the closest event L.A. has to a communal countdown. Show up early for DJ sets, photogenic installations and food trucks, and stick around for a midnight countdown projected onto City Hall.

Prohibition NYE

Travel back to the 1920s for this massive Prohibition era-themed NYE party, set in Downtown’s 1930s Art Deco marvel, Union Station. The Main Concourse serves as the decadent celebration’s backdrop, featuring live DJ sets and jazz, burlesque dancers, custom cocktails and champagne. Stick around for the NYE countdown and dropping of a 60-foot custom ball.

Gilded: New Years Eve

No matter the occassion, parties at the Theatre at Ace Hotel promise a good time—and a glittering gala to welcome in 2020 sounds like it’ll be the best time. A slew of house, funk and soul DJs will spin underneath a giant disco ball. You can upgrade your ticket to have dinner on the theater’s stage or to have access to a VIP open bar—but we also appreciate an affordable dancing-only option for the rest of us.

W Hollywood New Years

You can hit up the W’s Rooftop anyday of the year, but with its 360-degree Downtown skyline-meets-Hollywood-Hills view, this trusted destination still serves as a stellar locale for NYE. Inside, the night is made special not by LED walls or caged dancers, but by DJ talent that knows how to capture the energy of a party and elevate care-free rug cutters to the next level of joy.

L.A. Zoo Lights 2019/20: Family New Year’s Eve

Celebrate the new year in style with express entry to L.A. Zoo Lights, a dinner buffet that includes soft drinks and dessert, a carousel ride, games, DJ dance party, and live broadcast of the Times Square ball drop.
