What Type of New Year’s Person Are You?livxmin
What do champagne, a historic clock tower, and movie-quality kisses have in common? No, we are not referring to the eighties cult-classic, Back to the Future. However, if you live in Denver the answer is clear – it’s the recipe for one unforgettable New Year’s Eve in the Mile High City. From celebrating on the 27th floor of Peaks Lounge, to partying for a cause, we list special ways to ring in the New Year that fit your lifestyle.
The Philanthropist | MIDNIGHT AT THE LIBRARY – “You are a perishable item. Live Accordingly.” With a tagline like that, who wouldn’t want to see what this party is all about. Cloaked in a veil of secrecy, all who enter must know the special knock, follow a code of 1920’s style and conduct, and be prepared to dance their fancy pants off. On this magical evening Denver’s First Library – the historic McNichol’s Building built in 1909 – is transformed into an authentic speakeasy. And Bonus, all proceeds benefit the S.O.U.L. Foundation whose mission is to foster sustainable and vibrant Ugandan communities through unique partnerships focused on education, women’s empowerment, food security and health. Now that is something to toast about!
The Socialite | PEAKS LOUNGE – Looking for a place to see and be seen on this spectacular night? Receive A-List treatment at one of Denver’s best kept secrets for New Year’s Eve. Located on the 27th floor of the Hyatt Regency Denver, the Lounge opens on a first come first serve basis with music and dancing from 7:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. For less than half a benjamin, gain entrance to the party plus your choice of two cocktails. With the best views of downtown Denver’s fireworks shows, a luxurious interior, and an impeccable wine and fine spirits list, Peaks Lounge is the ultimate stop for those who want to toast in style. Plus, in years past the Lounge offers complimentary champagne to all guests at midnight.
The Traditionalist | A NIGHT IN VIENNA – Toast the night away with a Viennese style concert conducted by Andrew Litton of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. Be serenaded with cheerful selections from the classic waltz, to polka, and everything in between. An early start allots plenty of time to head to the clock tower for fireworks, or back home to watch the ball drop. Concert kicks off at 6:30 p.m. in Boettcher Concert Hall.
The Homebody | COUPLES SOIREE – Take a page from Martha Stewart’s book with these fun and chic party ideas. Repurpose leftover holiday paper to create festive decor. Fashion a sophisticated mantle display out of vintage clocks. Make a bright and elegant centerpiece from glittered faux lemons and serve up a classic with a twist, like the pink grapefruit mimosa. Your guests will appreciate the special touches, while you enjoy New Year’s from the comfort of your own home.
