Hey, Hey, Hey, What Rhymes With Here's Where To Watch Fireworks In Vegas On New Year's Eve?

December 27, 2013 at 5:40 PM | by | Comment (1)

It's a question we're asked every December and, we get it, it's an important one -- where can we see fireworks on New Year's Eve? Just standing on The Strip is a good idea, but where is an important factor, especially with towering resorts all around.

This year, just like the past two, fireworks will launch from the rooftops of seven resorts: Stratosphere, Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and MGM Grand. The entire production will last eight minutes and 23 seconds.

Need A Room For New Year's Eve? Here's How Rates Look Now

December 5, 2013 at 7:11 PM | by | Comment (1)

If you haven't booked that room for New Year's Eve yet, your options are either rising in price or dwindling in availability. Hotels are beginning to sell out for the night of December 31 (or, are requiring a multi-night reservation first). Here's a rundown of the current rates*, which are fluctuating by the day. There are still some good deals out there if you're not too picky about where you crash.

*Rates are for standard rooms, do not include tax or resort fees and, as always, are subject to change based on demand. Also, as mentioned some resorts may require a multiple night stay before allowing a New Year's Eve reservation. Inquire with the resort you're interested to see if any strings are attached.

Will Construction Sideline New York-New York's NYE Bridge Bash?

Where: 89109

The view from here, yesterday.

It's one of the more popular ways to ring in the New Year -- Strip-side on New York-New York's Brooklyn Bridge. But, it appears that on-going construction on the hotel-casino's facade may have folks searching for a new party spot.

Where: 3799 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map], 89109

Rumored opening dates have come and gone, but it seems like New Year's Eve weekend will finally see the arrival of Beacher's Madhouse to MGM Grand.

When it debuts December 27, Beacher's Madhouse will only be half a whole, though. Its nightclub will jump off that evening, but Beacher's Madhouse The Show won't take the stage until January 17.

If you're in that crowd, read on. And, keep this page bookmarked. We'll be adding more New Year's Eve events (as well as major happenings in the days leading up to the Big Day) as they're announced.

Haven't Booked A Room For New Year's Eve Yet? Here's What It Will Cost

October 29, 2013 at 11:47 PM | by | Comments (6)

Sure, Halloween still hasn't happened yet, but that hasn't stopped Vegas from already crafting events for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And, yep, New Year's Eve, too. (More on that soon.)

If you're planning to spend the final days of '13 in Vegas, but don't have a room yet. We salute your bravery. Or, Black Card. Here's how rates are looking two months out*. Since NYE falls on a Tuesday this year (boo), we're including weekend rates as well.

*Rates are for standard rooms, do not include tax or resort fees and, as always, are subject to change based on demand. Also, some resorts may require a multiple night stay before allowing a New Year's Eve reservation. Inquire with the resort you're interested to see if any strings are attached.

An Early Bird Look At New Year's Eve Rates

June 27, 2013 at 11:41 PM | by | Comments (2)

We know, we know. It's not even past the Fourth, Labor Day or even Halloween yet, and we're already thinking New Year's Eve. But, with the halfway mark just a few days away and a myriad of new openings expected to occur up and down The Strip just before year's end (think The Linq and MGM's promenade) maybe it's not too bad of an idea to start thinking about a room now.

Here's how rates stand on June 27. But, remember, pricing can fluctuate. If you see something you like, visit the hotel's website directly to confirm the going rate. Also, resort fees are not included in the prices cited below.

New Year's Eve Rates For Party People Who Are Also Procrastinators

December 27, 2012 at 12:50 PM | by | Comment (1)

We said earlier in December that you were running out of time and now you're downright up against the wall. While many hotels are sold out or high-priced, such as the Rio and the Hard Rock, you can still find a room out there if you want to make a last minute New Year's trek to Vegas.

We know that The Strip is packed, but what about the surrounding blocks? Here's a look at what's left at some of the more popular places off-Strip which we think are good options for those just looking for a crash pad. Gold Coast and Orleans are essentially steals given the time of year, and reduced rates on the 1st take some of the sting out of stays at places like the Hard Rock or the Palms.

Where Are The Fireworks, You Ask?

December 26, 2012 at 2:45 PM | by | Comment (1)

In what will certainly be the site of one of the largest displays of public affection in the nation, Vegas will be packed come midnight on New Year's Eve. Times Square might draw a denser crowd, but the Strip will be one of the best places to be as we ring in 2013 with seven simultaneous firework displays.

Where are they this year? It's pretty much deja-vu from 2011. They'll be shooting off from the rooftops of the Stratosphere, Treasure Island, the Venetian, Caesars Palace, Planet Hollywood, Aria, and MGM Grand. Setting up shop outside CityCenter on Las Vegas Boulevard should give you views of the displays at Aria, Planet Hollywoood, and MGM Grand. Hang around The Mirage to see fireworks from Treasure Island, the Venetian, and Caesars.

Krave Headed To The Rio

December 26, 2012 at 1:35 PM | by | Comments (0)

Krave left the Strip for something massive in downtown Vegas and while the gay club will ring in the New Year in Neonopolis, the party will move closer to The Strip again for at least some of 2013.

Krave Massive will bring the party to downtown for the first time on New Year's Eve, but what's being billed as the world's largest gay club will only be ready to party for one night only. It will hold a NYE bash in its movie theater turned ballroom (and is still selling tickets if you're interested), but will head to the Rio in January "for a limited time" while construction continues.

Terrible's Is Actually Anything But For NYE

Where: 4100 Paradise Road [map], 89109

This New Year's Eve, you may want to think about celebrating at Terrible's. And, no, we're not joking.

Terrible's is hosting its second annual Rock the Rooftop New Year's Eve 'soiree' on December 31. We didn't know about the first, but when we heard about this one, we were a bit skeptical of the view. Until we saw the photos. From the views shown above and below, you can see that Terrible's actually offers a pretty terrific view of the Las Vegas Strip skyline, and the fireworks display set to ring in the New Year.
