We're counting down the best New Year's Eve parties in Atlanta as we prepare our locals and visitors to turn up for 2018. So, raise a glass as we say "Bye Felicia" to 2017 and "How You Doin'" to 2018.

Pre-Game with Football and Concerts

  • Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers | Mercedes-Benz Stadium
    We may not be the most recent Super Bowl-winning team (too soon?), but it's always a good time at Atlanta's new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Watch the Atlanta Falcons take on the Carolina Panthers (but mostly Cam Newton).

  • Widespread Panic | The Fox Theatre
    The funk rock jam band returns to the ATL for a three-night concert, or, in other words, "Christmas Round Two" for local spreadheads.

  • Band of Horses | The Coca-Cola Roxy
    OTP stands for "Out There Parties" during NYE as Atlanta's newest concert venue, the Coca-Cola Roxy, hosts indie folk rock Band of Horses for two nights. Afterward, head over to The Battery Atlanta's NYE LIVE! if you don't want to celebrate too far from your Smyrna home. 

  • The Great Xscape Tour | Philips Arena
    Reality stars Kandi Burruss-Tucker, Tameka “Tiny” Harris and Tamar Braxton join performing artists LaTocha and Tamika Scott on stage at Philips Arena *sips tea.*

DOWNTOWN

  1. Atlanta NYElectric 2018 New Year’s Eve Countdown | Westin Peachtree Plaza
    Highlight: 
    If you're scared of heights, don't look down at Atlanta Nightlife's NYElectric countdown located 73 stories above the streets of Downtown. Atlanta DJs Zack Falls, Auntie Venim, Captain Malik and Kaf will be playing a mix of House and Top 40 hits all night long.

  2. Bassnectar NYE ATL 2017 | Georgia World Congress Center
    Highlight: Join more than 7,000 (Facebook 11/16) millennial bass heads as they descend into one of the Georgia World Congress Center's large event spaces where international touring EDM artist Bassnectar will perform for one of Atlanta's most expected lit NYE events in the city. Other special guests include What So Not, Ott and Phutureprimitive.

  3. 14th Annual Downtown Countdown | The Southern Exchange at 200 Peachtree St.
    Highlight: An event described as a combination of "historic architecture with contemporary swank" will have you looking up the word "swank" before digging out the old top hat or ball gown (if both, good for you) while you prepare for a party so sophisticated, you'll somehow have stocks in Goldman-Sachs by the end of the night. 

BUCKHEAD

  1. Buckhead Ball NYE 2018 | The Grand Hyatt Buckhead
    Highlight: We're including Buckhead for reasons more than inclusivity, so grab your polo shirt and khakis for this year's Buckhead Ball with international touring EDM artist KAP SLAP. Then mosey (still a word in the South) on over to a Silent Disco ('cause you've always been curious) and have the option of listening to three more different DJs (four DJs total).

EASTSIDE

  1. Atlanta Beer Festivals presents New Beers Eve | Front Page News & Tijuana Garage L5P
    Highlight: Get weird in Little Five Points for Atlanta Beer Festivals' annual NYE party, which offers Over... 40... Beer... Options. Oh, and there's live music provided by The Geeks Band as well.

  2. Masked New Year's Eve Ball | Skyline Park
    Highlight: Glamour. Elegance. Mystery. ON THE ROOF! It's time to invest in a festive mask for a party straight out of the movies (As reference guides, see masquerade ball scenes from "The Dark Knight Rises," "A Cinderella Story," "Marie Antoinette" and "Romeo + Juliet" with Leonardo DiCaprio.).

MIDTOWN

  1. New Years Eve with Yacht Rock Revue | Park Tavern
    Highlight: This party literally has it all. Open bar, check. Hors d'oeuvres, check. Sushi, check. A midnight champagne toast, check. S'mores, check. '70s and '80s rock cover band The Yacht Rock Revue, check. And a midnight breakfast buffet including Krispy Kreme dughnuts, double check with sprinkles, please. All this party needs is a rooftop masquerade and I'm there! 

  2. STK Atlanta NYE Ball | STK Atlanta
    Highlight: Not only was this the same restaurant where NeNe Leakes' ("Real Housewives of Atlanta," "Glee," "Fashion Police"and more) husband hosted a surprise birthday party for our city's ultimate shade queen, but the Midtown restaurant is also throwing a New Year's Eve extravaganza suitable for the ultimate ATL diva.
