New Year's Eve in CT | Many Options to Choose From
Many people feel they need to travel to distant places or very large cities to experience amazing New Years parties, but that is simply not the case.
From smaller quaint towns in the Litchfield hills to the more hustle-and-bustle of the bigger cities like Hartford (which has a great First Night celebration every year which includes a spectacular fireworks display at 12 midnight when January 1 hits) to New Haven to Stamford, you can find the type of venue that suits you best to countdown to midnight to usher in the new year. Here you can search for the type of New Years party you have in mind.

Looking for a quiet smaller intimate gathering where you can easily socialize and relax as midnight approaches, or do you want the loud heart-thumping energy of a huge party with hundreds of people and non-stop dancing? Connecticut offers you these options, whether it be at a restaurant, night club, bar, casino (Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun), lounge, hotel, country club, or banquet facility.
If you are searching for a CT New Year's Eve location based on dining and cuisine or with more of an emphasis on events, again, you will not have any trouble finding the type of place you and your partner and friends will love. What's more, you do not have to travel far or for long to get to your destination, probably two hours tops given the relatively small size of Connecticut.
Consider too New Year's Eve CT packages to help stretch your celebration dollars. Whatever type of venue interests you, do your homework in advance to see what they offer in terms of packages or other deals for their New Years eve celebration.
For example, if the venue you're considering offers overnight stays, you will most likely find they have package deals that include dinner, dancing with a DJ or a band providing live music, cocktail hour, hors d'oeuvres, dinner with choice of entree and dessert, and champagne or sparkling wine toast at midnight, after which everyone breaks into song with Auld Lang Syne, a long standing tradition.
Ask for group discounts too since many places offer this as an incentive for you to show up with your family and friends, both married and singles. Be sure to shop around and book early for these kinds of offers since they tend to fill up early. You should make a short list of the type of places you might want to go to as early as mid-October. By November, many spots are filled and come December, you might have trouble getting into the venue of your choice.
Whatever you do, remember to have a great time, but do so responsibly. Have a ton of fun, be safe and by all means do not drink and drive. Wishing you the very best this year and beyond as you celebrate New Year's Eve CT however you end up doing it!
