Assuming I don't lay low NYE, I'll venture to Marvin. With Thievery Corporation, KEENAN and STYLUS on the turntables for a mere $20 and cash bar, Marvin is my pick for the best tunes this New Year's Eve. MORE DETAILS HERE. They are also accepting reservations for dinner that night for a prix fix menu.
Ring in the New Year at W Washington DC with live jazz featuring Marcus Johnson and DJ Oz and Jahsonic. Though there is only a two-hour open bar from 8:00-10:00pm and a champagne toast at midnight, you'll experience eye popping Alex Turco art installations furnished exclusively by LUXE Studio, video installations directed by Adrian Loving, a photo shoot produced and photographed by Jodi King, with Hair Designer Tyler Larish, Stylist Tara Papanicolas, and Makeup Artist Richard Bernal. Tickets are $89 in advance and $110 after Christmas. MORE DETAILS HERE.
Two words: OPEN BAR for $45. A bit far down South at Skyline Hotel - home of BYT's infamous summer pool parties, good luck getting a cab. BYT's solved that and has special rates at the hotel for the night for $89 a pop. With FATBACK spinning and a laundry list of other DJ's expect blow up dolls, mahem and dope pics from photogs for the night. More deets HERE. Tickets are $45 for bar and $10 for food.
