Tag: New Year's EveView All Tags
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.

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 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.
We made it through another apocalypse, everybody! We're going to celebrate by getting off Facebook... err, we mean, packing it in at work.. hitting a few Fremont Street bars because you know how we love us some drinking, umm, downtown Vegas and then having one amazing four-day holiday weekend.
We hope you have an amazing time as well filled with love and laughter. If you're still trying to figure out what to do in Vegas for the holidays, either Christmas or New Year's Eve, just check out our links below, in handy bullet point format. We'll see you back here on Wednesday!
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.

Yesterday, we took you through what it would cost to get a semi-last minute standard room at various Vegas hotels on New Year's Eve, but we know you've got more flash in you than two beds and a sink.
New Year's Eve rates at Circus Circus ($478) might incite a raise of an eyebrow so how about a one-bedroom balcony suite for two nights at Signature for a few dollars more? Given that rates for the 1st of January always drop way low, you can easily come out on top if you play your cards right. Time is running out to get creative, but here are a couple sweet suites that are still available:
We're just under three weeks from New Year's Eve, but hotels still have room for those who wish to ring in 2013 under the bright lights of Vegas. (Except for New York-New York, they're now sold out on the 31st. The Cosmopolitan's standard rooms, which had required a three-night stay, are sold out, too.) Most Vegas hotels are requiring at least a two-night stay to ensure a room on the city's biggest night. Some require booking both the 30th and 31st while others allow you to stay the 1st as your second night, which is significantly cheaper across the board. In some cases, staying the nights of the 31st and the 1st can save you almost $200 (which is the case for Bally's).
Here's the breakdown on the policies and prices of some randomly selected Vegas hotels. And, don't forget to check out our Ultimate Guide to New Year's Eve once you get a room!
Now that one holiday is out of the way, Vegas resorts are getting a little bit country for one while getting even more over the top for the other. The Christmas season will see Shania, Faith and Tim (oh my) but the city's biggest blowout will span the last four days of the year. Our ultimate guide to New Year's Eve in Vegas already had more than 40 ways to ring in 2013, but a spate of new announcements today have ticked that to more than 80 events.
It's nearly Thanksgiving already and that means two things: many of us will soon be tired of turkey and then stressed about the next upcoming holiday. But, scores of others are already focused on planning the next next big holiday. That would be New Year's Eve in Las Vegas. Since the holidays are often a time to reflect and feel nostalgic the Hard Rock is bringing back the option to party like it's...2010.
Body English re-opens for good Friday, December 28 for a weekend warm-up before the year's last big
amateur night bash. Long term, the new old nightclub promises to showcase indie, electronic, rock and pop music across two distinct rooms and a private parlor decked out in leathers, vintage chandeliers and rich dark woods.

It's that time of year when you'll find Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas displays up in stores so it's no surprise that the holidays are heavily on the mind of VegasChatter readers as well.
Recently, we've received notes from fans wondering what was going on in town for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Eve. If you've just got to know as well, here's how things stand now. Look for our ultimate New Year's Eve guide to drop next week. But, if you're more of a one holiday-at-a-time kind of person, here's a link to our A-to-Z guide on Halloween in Vegas.
First up, turkey time:
Usually, we'd say it's way too early expect news on New Year's Eve happenings on The Strip, but this year is proving to be different.
Last week, we learned that SHe restaurant (Eva Longoria's do-over at Crystals) will open on December 31. (And, before that, we learned that Hakkasan would not.) Now, The Cosmopolitan has announced that it will heat up the last night of the year with a performance by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
