How to Ring in 2019 in Philly

December 26, 2018

Do you like to get dressed up and sip on swanky cocktails on New Year’s Eve? Maybe you prefer to bundle up, head outside, and watch the fireworks. Or perhaps your idea of the perfect NYE involves live music at a local venue. It doesn’t matter which category you fall into, Philly has something for you this New Year’s Eve. Check out this roundup of Philadelphia’s NYE events to find your perfect match.

Treat yourself to a fancy night out at The Ritz-Carlton’s in-house bar Aqimero. From your complimentary welcome glass of champagne to the artisan cocktails flowing freely from the open bar, expect only the best at this New Year’s Eve party. It also includes live music, lots of food, and a balloon drop at midnight. If you want to catch SugarHouse Casino’s annual fireworks display, line up along the Delaware River at 6 p.m. or midnight with your friends—or really anywhere in the city with a good view of the water. You can also catch live music at The Fillmore, the Trocadero, and other local music venues.
