That’s why Old Town Scottsdale puts on an event dedicated to hopping from bar to bar on the big night. The all-access pass with this crawl gets you in doors without expensive NYE cover fees, and even welcomes you with shots at select venues and awards you with drink specials, to boot. You want access to several parties over the course of the night? This pub crawl is perfect for you!

Pack your car with the whole family and crank up the tunes as you roll through the awesome display they’ve set up in Tempe called “Reindeer Road”. You won’t regret having such a colorful end to the year!

Bring in the New Year “Cowboy Style” at Rustler’s Rooste

With the dining room open till 10 p.m. and the NYE party at Rustler’s Rooste open until the stroke of midnight, you’re bound to find a way to enjoy yourself, be it with a steak, some fried rattlesnake (for good luck), or even just some champagne toasts and dancing to a live band that starts playing at 7. If you’re looking to party it up “cowboy style,” Rustler’s Rooste should be your final destination for December 31st, no doubt.

Enjoy a Classy NYE Performance from The Phoenix Symphony

Complete with guest star Leslie Odom, Jr., The Phoenix Symphony is ringing in the new year with a performative celebration. If a night at Symphony Hall with instrumentals and a Broadway star sounds like music to your ears, then you should definitely make haste and find your seat before it’s too late. Your New Year’s Eve celebration can be a classy night out (or an impressive choice for date night). Why wait?

Celebrate a Happy “Noon” Year at Children’s Museum of Phoenix

215 N 7th St, Phoenix, AZ 85034

A family-friendly celebration in the midday for those who won’t want to keep the kids up late: that’s Happy “Noon” Year. Children’s Museum of Phoenix is holding two of these celebrations during the day this Friday, one from 9 to noon and the other from 1 to 4 p.m. From the music and dancing to the sparkling cider and balloon drop, there’s a lot of activity for your kiddos to partake in during this NYE daytime bash!

Dig Into a Prix Fixe Five-Course Supper at Blue Hound

2 E Jefferson St, Phoenix, AZ 85004

This five-course meal is an ideal way to celebrate the end of 2021: with Dungeness Crab Bisque to start things off and finishing strong with a trio of desserts, there’s a lot here that makes your last night of the year feel like a luxurious one. Speaking of luxury, you can sub out your main course of prime beef loin to a Wagyu beef loin instead, or even request seared foie gras if you’re looking for the most decadent dinner possible.
