13 Must-Attend New Year's Eve 2013 Parties in Metro Phoenix

Categories: Events

Warner Bros.
A Great Gatsby style celebration will transpire at the Clarendon on NYE.

The Clarendon Hotel
Be sure to hit up some of the local costume shops like Easley's or Mardi Gras if you're planning to attend the Clarendon's A Modern Gatsby Affair New Year's Eve Party. As its name portends, the Auld Lange Syne festivities will boast a "roaring '20s" theme, which means attendees both flapper and dapper will be in abundance.

Cocktails will be available at Gallo Blanco and The Sky Deck during the event, while DJ sessions by Michael Hooker, a performance by CONDER/dance, midnight champagne toast, and more are also planned. Evening attire or cocktail wear is recommended and a variety of special room packages are also available. The party starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $45.

Benjamin Leatherman
DJ Adrian Flanagan is scheduled to perform at Rips on New Year's Eve.

Rips Ales & Cocktails
Britpop, New Wave, indie, and darkwave tracks will be broadcast through the sound system at Rips by both Obscura's DJ Adrian Flanagan and Shadowplay's DJ Manchester during Hang the DJ: New Year's Eve 2014. As such, we predict that you're also likely to hear the Smiths hit of the same name at least once during the evening, in addition to songs by The Cure, Depeche Mode, Interpol, Pet Shop Boys, and Crystal Castles.

Also on tap besides melodramatic music are drink specials, giveaways like a PBR prize package and concert tickets, party favors, and a big toast at midnight with plenty of bubbly being sipped. Doors are at 9 p.m. Admission is $5 before 10:30 p.m., $10 thereafter.

That is the lamest looking bunch of shit I have ever seen. It's almost ALL DJ's.

The NYE at Valley Ho was horrible last year. The food was hot dogs, drinks took 20 minutes, broken glass on the floor was left unattended, and negative attitudes from all the typical scottsdale personalities. Stay away, not worth price...
