As one more year fades away, we could use a drink. Here’s a list of local parties perfect for kissing 2018 goodbye.

A Cinderella Story

Pure Nightclub
146 S Murphy Ave, Sunnyvale

If the shoe fits, wear it on the dance floor. You just might meet your own Prince Charming at this Cinderella-themed dance party. Grab tickets in advance so you don’t turn into a pumpkin waiting in line. While you’re at it, take a look at Pure’s bottle service packages.

An Intimate NYE
Dec 31, 8pm, $75
43 W San Salvador St, San Jose

It’s always an intimate experience at Haberdasher, where the staff know far more about mixing up hooch than your average barkeep. But this New Year’s Eve, it’s set to be a very exclusive evening indeed at downtown San Jose’s truly underground bar. Enjoy craft cocktails and complementary appetizers while the Tipsy Gypsy Trio provide live entertainment. Seats are super limited and will be awarded by lottery. A select number of walk-ins will be admitted for a $20 cover.

Back to the ’90s
Dec 31, 7pm, $35+
The Saddle Rack
42011 Boscell Rd, Fremont

Hey dude! The biggest, baddest country bar in the Bay Area is feeling nostalgic this year, so they’re throwing a totally bodacious ’90s-themed party this New Year’s Eve. House band Diablo Road will be rocking the stage in their neon, ’90s best, so break out your slap bracelets and crazy-patterned Hammer pants and go nuts with the L.A. Looks. End the night with a midnight balloon drop and champagne toast.

Black Tie NYE
Dec 31, 9pm, $10+
SP2 Communal Bar + Restaurant

If there’s ever a time to make sure you’re dressed to the nines, it’s on New Year’s Eve. That’s why SP2 kindly asks you to dress in cocktail attire when attending its send-off to 2018. Bottle service packages are available, but the base level cover charge certainly won’t break the bank.

Muchos Mayhem
