Ringing in the New Year with Uber in Miami

New Year’s Eve in Miami means beaches, hot music, fireworks, and parties. Whether you’re headed to a black-tie gala or a chic beach party, Uber can get you there. Although there are several Uber options available in Miami, make sure to split your fare with your friends or family members and keep your costs low.

Check out these top places to ring in the New Year in Miami:

Five Star New Year’s Eve

The ultimate in glamour, Five Star New Year’s Eve will host a full week of formal events at decadent locations around Miami. From luxury yacht cruises to a night at the Rockwell, the posh celebrations are the perfect way to say goodbye to 2016. The December 31st event on Miami’s Watson Island (1000 MacArthur Causeway) asks guests to come dressed in white and gold formal attire, and offers all-night gourmet fare—hors d’oeuvres, dinner, dessert, breakfast, and high-end drinks until 5 a.m. Make sure your “coach” is on par with your gown by requesting UberLUX.

Fontainebleau Miami Beach

This gorgeous hotel is hosting the perfect mix of concerts and clubbing. Pop-lovers will swoon as Justin Bieber performs poolside and leads the midnight countdown. Afterwards, guests can hit the dance floor in the hotel’s LIV Nightclub, where Grammy Award-winning producer Skrillex headlines the all-night party. Guests must be 21 or older—there’s an open bar until midnight. Tickets for the various party venues start at $500 and sell out quickly. So get your tickets early, pick out your best “Miami Beach Chic” attire, and get ready to party at the Fontainebleau (4441 Collins Avenue).

Billy Joel—A New Year’s Tradition

For thousands of Americans, Billy Joel’s songs are the soundscape for ringing in the New Year. This iconic musician has made a habit of performing on New Year’s Eve in cities across the United States, and this year he’ll be in Miami at the BB&T Center (1 Panther Parkway, Sunrise). With hit songs spanning five decades, the Piano Man is a living legend you can’t miss. Tickets ($56+) will sell out, so buy early, blast that Billy Joel playlist, and let the reminiscing begin.

Pitbull’s New Year Revolution

For a real Miami-style waterfront New Year’s Eve celebration, ride with Uber to Pitbull’s New Year Revolution in Bayfront Park (301 N. Biscayne Boulevard). Co-hosted by Queen Latifah and Snoop Dogg, this mega-party boasts high-profile performers, fireworks, and a massive neon orange icon with sunglasses that drops at midnight—and it’s free. No coolers, cans, bottles, or personal fireworks are allowed in park, making this the perfect celebration for families with older children and teens. The Revolution will be broadcast on FOX, but gates open at 6:30 p.m. to experience it live.

Speakeasy 2017 New Year’s Eve Cruise

If beachfront just isn’t close enough to the water, this cruise on the Caprice yacht is the way to go this New Year’s Eve. Dressed in semi-formal flapper attire, guests will spend the night enjoying an open bar, hand-passed hors d’oeuvres, and DJs playing today’s hit music on two separate decks. Tickets are already selling out, so make plans now to catch the best views of the city and Miami’s New Year’s fireworks. There is no parking available, so Uber is the best way to get to the pier (400 SE 2nd Avenue).
