When the clock strikes midnight on the 1st of January 2018, where will you be? If you’re a smart cookie, and we know you are, you’ll be on Chapel Street. If you need a little push in the right direction, here are a few of the biggest party spots for new years eve in Melbourne. Now, here’s to starting 2018 with a BANG.

The Emerson will be counting down the 50 biggest tunes of 2017 and welcoming 2018 with “The Classics” by John Course. Plus, Emerson NYE Exclusive DJ, Jono Haze, Paul CLRK.

Book a ticket for complimentary house spirits, beer, wine, sparkling and soft drinks from 8pm – 11pm. Or if you’re feeling fancy, book a booth with table service and start the new year like the baller that you are (or at least pretend to be).

143-145 Commercial Road, South Yarra

If you’re feeling a little festive, the Prahran Hotel White Party might be up your alley. Start the new year feeling festive with a 5 hour beverage package from 7pm until 12am. Beer, wine & house spirits are all available, plus there’ll be roaming finger food to keep you going.

DJs on all levels will keep the party going & at just $100 a person all inclusive, you can start your ‘save money’ NY resolution early.

82 High Street, Prahran

New to Chapel Street in July 2017

If the thought of raging into the new year isn’t for you, this is the perfect solution. The Smith is hosting a sit down dinner party with a 7-plate menu. Once dinner is over and done with, the DJ will kick off for those wanting to boogie into the night. Oh, and did we mention there’ll be champagne specials throughout the night? Make sure you book early to avoid missing out.

213-219 High Street, Prahran

10, 9, 8, 7, 6 … Oh wait … too early! End the year with the biggest Gossip session yet with Love Machine’s Secret Admirer’s Masquerade. Glam up, mask up and let’s drink away 2017 and countdown the start of a fabulously colourful year ahead. Oh, and don’t forget to book yourself a drinks package in advance.

If you’re not a Love Machine regular, we suggest you do a little Instagram looksie before jumping right in… We love the place, but it might not be your cup of tea, if you get what we mean.

228a Malvern Road, Prahran

With an event name like ‘Disco of the Decades’ you know there’s going to be something here for everyone! Think feel good, party tunes from the 80s, 90s, 00s and what’s hot right now. Just 20 bucks at the door will get you entry and a complimentary house wine or schooner of Hawthorn Pale Ale #bargain.
