Toronto: The Best Ways to Celebrate New Year’s Eve 2016

Toronto: The Best Ways to Celebrate New Year’s Eve 2016

Posted by PanamericanWorld on December 22, 2015

New Year’s Eve should be the best night of the year – so why does organizing the final party in our calendar always feel like such a headache? With different tastes and friends to cater to, it can be hard to find something that pleases everyone, and sometimes it’s hard to know where to look.

But never fear, because we’ve got your back. Whether you’re looking for the blowout of the century, a slice of culture at a museum or a romantic evening with just you and your other half, we’ve got it covered.

So slip into your dancing shoes – or your comfiest ones – and find the perfect spot to welcome 2016 in Toronto.

If You Want to Ring it in Fancy…

If there’s ever a time to go all out in the glam department, it’s on New Year’s Eve. And what better place to do so than at the Grand Ballroom at the luxurious Trump Toronto, especially if you have a thing for black and white. At The Black and White Ball, you can expect amazing DJs, tons of party favours, and the best black and white-clad crowd in the city.

If You’re Craving a Meal at a Hot Restaurant with a Side of a Cool DJ…

Hit Montecito to make your last meal of the year count. The California-inspired hotspot will offer a three-course prix-fix menu, followed by the “Late Night Affair” complete with oysters, drinks, apps, party favours, and favourite Toronto DJ Lissa Monet. Who knows, you may even bump into its famous owner, Ivan Reitman.

If You Want to Party Hard and Avoid an Overly Pretentious Crowd…

If wearing a tux or a gown isn’t in the cards (but good vibes and beer are), kiss 2015 goodbye at Amsterdam BrewHouse. The waterfront Queen’s Quay spot will host an evening of first-class (but not uptight) partying inspired by the 20s. The party doesn’t stop until the taps run dry.

For a Mixed Bag…

Whether you come for dinner first, or for the party after, the Drake Hotel is known to do it up on New Year’s Eve with a high-energy party. The best part of The Drake is its diversity – from hipsters and socialites to starving artists and bankers, you’ll find them all here on the dance floor. Live bands, DJs, unbeatable eats, and bubbly will be on full display at both the Drake Hotel and Drake One Fifty.

If a theme’s your thing…

If NYE wouldn’t be complete without a theme, step back in time at the Ritz-Carlton at DEQ’s retro-themed New Year’s Eve party. Aside from the open invitation to don your beloved retro clothes, party perks include picture-worthy views from the heated patio, live DJs spinning an eclectic mix of current and hit songs from the past under the disco ball, party favours, and a ready-to-party crowd.

If You’re Still into Clubs….

If clubs are still your thing, get crazy at Union, where you can work off those holiday meals on the dance floor thanks to hometown favourites Carlo Lio, Nathan Barato, and The Junkies. The foursome will give high-energy partygoers an unforgettable night of relentless beats as they face off in a b2b2b2b marathon like no other. Don’t plan brunch too early the next day; the party goes until 5am.

To Kick-Start Your New Year’s Eve Fitness Resolutions…

Join My NextRace Midnight Run to start the year on a healthy note, should you be so ambitious. 
If you should be so ambitious, you can ring in the New Year with a 5K run at the stroke of midnight and then celebrate with a post-race party in Liberty Village.

If You’re Looking to Laugh Off the Year….

Hit Second City for a LOL-filled New Year’s Eve. Launch the year with a special performance of the current celebrated mainstage show Click Bait and Switch, complete with a countdown with the cast, party favours, and a Champagne toast.

For a Guaranteed Midnight Kiss…

If you’re single and ready to mingle, head to Rosewater Supper Club for’s massive singles party. Whether you’re in the market for a hibernation season partner in crime or a one-night stand to kick off the year, you’ll find it here.

If it’s a Family Affair…

For a family-friendly NYE celebration where your niece and nephew are welcome (and one that’s not going to break the bank), head to Nathan Phillips Square for the city’s largest dance and skating party. The free event will end at midnight with a spectacular fireworks display to music.

If You Want to Rock Out and a Chill Vibe…

Back by popular demand, beloved Toronto cover band Dwayne Gretzky returns to the Danforth Music Hall to ring in the New Year with all the classics you shamelessly sing in the shower. If you’re not feeling like getting done up or a stuffy vibe, throw on a t-shirt and belt out everything from Tom Petty to Queen and Fleetwood Mac.
