With the decade coming to a close, New Year’s Eve celebrations are bound to be bigger and better than ever. Here is everything you need to know about three incredible ways to ring in the new year in Newport Beach.


1. New Year’s Eve Dinner Party

You won’t want to be fashionably late to this fantastic event held at Fashion Island Hotel’s Oak Grill. The evening’s dining options include Hawaiian kanpachi, tomato and roasted red pepper bisque, winter vegetable truffle pot pie, and chocolate almond tarts for dessert, which make this an unbeatable last meal of 2019. Oak Grill is hosting two seatings, so there is plenty of room at the table for you and your family. Adult tickets for the 5:00 p.m. first seating start at $125 and include a four-course meal and a complimentary glass of Champagne; tickets for children start at $45. Adult tickets are $175 for the 8:30 p.m. second seating and include a six-course meal and a complimentary midnight Champagne toast to celebrate 2020.


2. Gatsby's House

It’s been almost a century since the publication of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Gilded Age tale The Great Gatsby, but 2020 brings with it a revival of the Roaring Twenties. Celebrate the new decade in style with live DJs and an open bar at the Paséa Hotel & Spa, only five miles north of Newport Beach. Group rates for tickets are available for parties of up to 15, which offers additional perks, such as VIP tables, bottle service, or complimentary drinks. Come dressed in your best 1920s-inspired apparel to start the new year with flair.


3. Rock the Yacht

Newport Beach is known for its harbor, so why not kick off the new year by setting sail in Newport Bay? The four-deck Eternity Yacht starts boarding at 9 p.m. and departs at 9:30 p.m. Attendance is capped at 300 guests, so be sure to buy your tickets in advance to ensure your spot on this lavish yacht. All guests must be 21 or over. Tickets can be purchased online in advance starting at $129. With an open bar, four hours of nonstop fun, and complimentary Champagne toasts at midnight, this is an awesome way to begin 2020.
