Hi everyone!

There’s a lot going on in the city and you’ve still got time to get your ticket to some of the hottest New Year’s Eve parties around. Buckle up, and get ready to ring in 2013 in style:


Looking for the biggest party in town? Then head over to the EMP for Indulgence, where over 3000 guests will converge for a night full of live entertainment, DJs, photo booths, live comedy theater and more. Oh, and you’ll be right underneath the Space Needle, which means you’ll have one of the best views in the city for those NYE fireworks. Get all the info plus tickets here.

Bonza Bash has established themselves as the standout party throwers for special occasions throughout the year. They’ve got a swanky soiree at the Grand Hyatt planned for you this NYE with decor by PJ Hummel & Co.; beats by KISS 106’s DJ Tamm and The Mach One Jazz Orchestra. Dress code calls for semi-formal to black tie, so put all your style cards on the table and go all out for the night. Get your tickets now before they sell out! Tickets here.


Seattle’s newest and hottest nightclub, Foundation is transforming into a sexy Boudoir for the night. You’ll enjoy the sounds of AJ Sorbello, LA Riots, Natalia Kills and DJ Benzi alongside burlesque dancers, Parisian-themed backdrops and more. Foundation is guaranteed to have the best electronic music NYE party in town. Tickets here.

Belltown’s Ampersand Lounge is open for business and filling up fast for NYE. Get your tickets now to skip the line, enjoy a champagne toast and dance the night away to EDM and party anthems from the king of the party rock himself, TigerBeat. Details & tickets here.

A whole bevy of Seattle’s most legendary nightlife promoters are coming together for one huge party at Showbox SoDo. Island reggae band 2 Story Zori will kick off the night, while DJs ChinkyEye & Spam I Am will have you dancing all the way to your midnight kiss and beyond.  RSVP on Facebook, and buy tickets here.

The fine folks at 95 Slide and Resident Media are turning 95 back into its predecessor, the HG Lodge, for one night only on NYE. Soul Uno and Pat Nasty are on the decks and Brainstorm of Dyme Def will be in the house for a live performance. Details & RSVP on Facebook.

Dapper DJs Hyro & Megatran are bringing the sounds and the style to Havana for the New Year’s Eve Gala. Your ticket will guarantee you skipping the line until 10:00p.m. After that, it’s all on a first-come, first-served basis. You know how the lines at Havana are, so make sure to get in early! Buy tickets here.


How could I forget the award-winning Best Dance club in the Northwest? Trinity needs no introduction, but for those of you who may not be familiar, you’ve got three rooms of music and two dance floors for your NYE. Enjoy the sights and sounds of DJs Guy, VSOP and KISS 106.1 amidst a balloon drop, champagne toast and a countdown to midnight with your sweetie. Early bird tix are sold out, but you can still snag a GA ticket here.


Happy New Year! Cheers to an amazing night and your most incredible year yet. Remember to party responsibly and get yourself into an Uber for the night!
