What do you do on New Year’s Eve? That’s the question that weighs on almost everyone’s mind. As your mind struggles to answer this question, you ultimately have to decide if you want to go out or stay in for NYE.

Before you make a decision that might take you to some overpriced and crowded club or that will leave you home alone and lonely, consider the following options. 

6 Fabulous Plans for a Night Out on the Town for NYE

Here’s a list of things to do if you’re looking for a night out on the town. 

  1. New York City’s Annual New Year’s Eve Party 2024 @ Stitch

This first event is for the partygoers who want to do it big this New Year’s Eve. The party at Stitch fills up with people. Plus, you’ll want to get there early to enjoy the open bar from 8–9:00 pm. For 15 years, Stitch has been throwing unforgettable NYE parties with two dancing floors accompanied by plenty of alcohol. 

The bar is within walking distance of Times Square, so you’ll be in the middle of all the action. If you want to party all night and dance to your favorite hip-hop/electronic and Top 40 music, this is the place to be. 

Check out the event website for more information and get your tickets. 

2. Party Like It’s 1989 New Year’s Eve Bash

For all the ’80s and ’90s kids, the Party Like It’s 1989 New Year’s Eve Bash happening in NYC is for you.

If you want to go out but don’t want to put up with listening to today’s music, then this event will have you dancing the night away with retro tunes. 

In addition to great tunes, there will also be professional photo options, a catered menu, and a cash bar with various wine, beer, and cider options. 

The night will start with a live band, and once the clock strikes midnight, you’ll toast the new year with champagne, followed by a DJ TiLT who will keep the night going until 2:00 am. 

If this sounds like a party for you, make sure you purchase your tickets soon

3. Carnival Masquerade Ball at Omni Atlanta at Centennial Park

While local nightclubs and DJs are great, you may be in the mood for something international. Instead of heading out of the country, you can visit Centennial Park in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Carnival Masquerade Ball at Omni Atlanta at Centennial Park is a Latin-inspired party that starts at 9:00 p.m. You can enjoy a live Latin Band at the Carnival Grand Ballroom. If you want to mix things up, you can hang out at the Top Draft Sports Lounge, where DJ EU will spin some international beats.

Besides an international selection of music, you’ll also enjoy various food stations inspired by South American foods, cocktails, wine, and beer.

5 Fun Things to Do If You Want to Stay Home for NYE

For those who rather not deal with the crowds of drunken people, here are some ways you can have fun staying at home on NYE.

  1. Host a game night; include video games as well as board games

Get together with your closest friends and have a game night. Depending on your style, you can break out the classic board and card games such as Monopoly and UNO.

You can even make it high-tech by playing video games such as Jackbox games or Mario Kart. 

  1. Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking might seem like some out-of-date activity. However, it can be fun to do by yourself or with friends. The primary purpose of scrapbooking is to preserve or present important memories. 

Typically, scrapbooking involves attaching photos, artwork, or other memorabilia to blank pages in a scrapbook. 

While many of our memories exist on the thousands of photos we have stored on our computers and phones, scrapbooking is a nice way to relive old memories. 

Use NYE as a time to make a collage of photos from 2023 and reflect on the good times. 

  1. Movie Marathon

Sometimes, NYE is a great night to decompress. Instead of getting all dressed up, why not put on comfy clothes, prepare a table of your favorite snacks, and watch a marathon of your favorite movies? 

Make your inner Blerd happy by watching one of the phases of the Marvel movies or classics like Men in Black, Blade, and other fun sci-fi movies.

  1. Dance party

Say you want to go out dancing but don’t want to worry about getting pushed around by dozens of drunk partygoers. Avoid getting your feet stepped on and have a dance party at home. 

Invite your friends, rearrange the furniture to give yourself maximum space, and put on your Spotify Wrap or any of your favorite playlists. 

  1. Plan for the future with a vision-board-making party. 

While many NYE celebrations focus on celebrating the past year, you can use the time to focus on the coming year. 

Vision boards are collages with images of things you want to manifest or obtain. People tend to cut out pictures from magazines to design their vision boards. 

If you’re hopeful about the future, you can gather your friends, poster boards, and old magazines to assemble your 2024 vision boards. 

If you want to have even more fun with this idea, hire a tarot card reader to come and predict your future.
