New Year’s Eve is one of my favorite holidays, but I’ll take almost any reason to celebrate, especially when I’m lucky enough to be in Phoenix, Arizona where there’s such a lively party scene. NYE parties here in the Valley of the Sun are on another level, though.
When it’s time to put the year behind us and look towards a new one, there’s no place I’d rather be than Phoenix. There are so many events put on by bars, restaurants, and hotels that it’s hard to decide where to go for the best time. For that reason, I went around the city searching for the best places to party on New Year’s Eve in Phoenix and I ranked them all on this handy guide for my fellow party-goers out there.
Fireworks, champagne, drinks⸺you’ll find all this and more down below on my list of the best NYE celebrations Phoenix has to offer. Don’t miss out on any of the fun when New Year’s Eve rolls around, check out my favorite places to party in Phoenix.
