6 First Night Celebrations in Charlottesville

Before the holiday season is over, we will welcome in 2018 on New Year’s Eve. Whether you are a late night party-goer (or at least pretend to be one on this day each year), or more into an early bedtime, there is an event that will work for your First Night style.

All-Night Celebrations:

C-VILLE’s Bigger Night– Carver Rec Center and C-VILLE Weekly are hosting a big New Years Eve party. There will be a variety of beverages offered at this local collaboration like craft beer from Hardywood Brewery, cider from Bold Rock, wine from Stone Mountain and Valley Road Vineyards, and festive cocktails from Belle Isle Moonshine. Heavy appetizers will be available and the night will be complete with a DJ, giant dance floor, and a casino room. This might be the party of the night in Charlottesville if you enjoy really going all out for New Years Eve!

Party Like Gatsby– At Jack Browns Burger Bar, enjoy a more casual night in 20’s style. Dress like the prohibition era, enjoy a vintage style night, and enjoy a secret selection of beers along with a Champagne toast at midnight. From 8am to 2am you can enjoy this party!

 

Grab Dinner to Celebrate:

New Year’s Eve Dinner & Prohibition Party– This party at Tavola will include two different options for dinner seatings at 6pm or 8pm. A ticket will get you a two course, delicious Italian dinner and desserts that look too good to pass up. There will also be dancing and prohibition era cocktails available anytime after 6pm in their Cicchetti bar. A roulette table and a countdown to midnight will top the night off!

New Year’s Eve at Brasserie Saison– You can enjoy a unique 4 course meal at one of our favorite spots on the Downtown Mall. There are dinner seatings at 6pm and 8:30 pm. Find their contact information on their website to make reservations for this great night, or walk in seats are available at the bar. There will also be wine pairings available.

The Family Friendly New Year’s Eve:

Balloon Drop New Years Eve– Random Row is hosting a New Year’s Eve party from 4-7pm in their tasting room that is fit for all ages. There will be sparkling cider for those too young to drink alcohol and fantastic craft beer for adults. An adult ticket includes a fully catered dinner and two pints. There are separate menus for kids and adults and the options look delicious! Board games, large screen TV’s with the day’s games playing, and games for kids will all be available! The balloon drop will be at 6pm, so this is perfect for anyone wanting to call it a night much earlier. 

First Night Virginia Charlottesville– This year will be the 36th annual family friendly first night celebration on the Downtown Mall. The most popular event of the night gets you a wristband that allows you to attend several events throughout the entire night celebrating the arts. The event list includes a daredevil show, a magic show, and a countdown to the new year with prohibition style jazz or improv comedy. These are just some of the events on the list. This is a great way to celebrate for anyone that wants to enjoy the arts in the city. 

What is your New Year’s Eve Celebration Style? We know you’ll enjoy one of these events, whichever one fits the way you’d like to celebrate the night best! 

We are so thankful for the blessings that 2017 has brought to us and all of the guests that have visited us. We look forward to a fantastic 2018!
