The best thing to do on New Year's Eve is to celebrate with your loved ones, a night that is unlike any other. Most restaurants, even those that comply with the Covid-19 guidelines, will be closed by midnight. Luckily, there are plenty of events going on before the clock strikes midnight. These events are great ways to spend the evening with your friends and family.
Celebrate the New Year at the Vanderbilt's New Years in the Mansion with an all-you-can-eat chef's carvery and a champagne toast. The evening also includes a live music performance by the Marlene Jazz Ensemble. Enjoy the night with a complimentary champagne toast at midnight. Newport Vineyards has a special NYE menu, and Jonathans Restaurant in Huntington serves an array of popular dishes. The Mill Pond House in Centerport has a regular menu, as well as a NYE menu. Both offer an open bar and a complimentary bottle of champagne.
For a posh celebration, head to the Hamptons. This is a great place to bring the whole family. There are many restaurants and nightclubs that have a New Year's Eve theme. And if you're looking for a less expensive option, try a dinner at the Vanderbilt Mansion. There's live music and a champagne toast at midnight.
If you're looking for something a little less upscale, try the Long Island Aquarium's Fishes & Wishes event. The evening is set in a 1920s theme, and the Aquarium has an all-night open bar. The evening will include a cocktail hour, live entertainment, and a meet-and-greet with the animals. It will be a fun night, but you should book your tickets early as these events will fill up quickly.
