There’s a party at Dirck the Norseman – the new craft beer joint in Greenpoint – with free beer, wine and food.
Rubulad is doing their usual over-the-top party (which is always fun). This time with no charges of racism. This year it’s at 893 Bergen Street between Franklin & Classon. ($10 bucks before 10pm, $20 bucks after.)
This year’s theme “Time & Space” will be set inside a 60,000 sq ft multi-room arena with 2 main stages of electronic music, custom lighting, and stage design. Featuring illuminated art installations, circus performers flying overhead, Burning Man Art Cars (including Thunder Gumbo), themed lounge areas, food trucks, funky clothing vendors, onsite body painting by Kirkworx Dupuis and Bodyworx.me
(www.facebook.com/bodyworxdotme) plus much much more
Our midnight countdown will feature a rocket launch and aerial performance you won’t want to miss.
On the downside, the Bang-On party is gonna cost you $60 bucks.
If none of these interest you, Brokleyn has a few great picks:
New Year’s Eve Reggae Prom
The Tea Factory, 175 Stockholm Street (Bushwick)
Free before 10pm, $5 after
For its third annual NYE celebration, Tea Factory Sounds presents Bushwick’s Reggae Prom, a night of real true love. Champagne, lover’s rock and a make out party are all on the agenda at the prom, which is free before 10pm and $5 after. Do bring a date, unless you’re confident you can find yourself a make out partner amidst the laid back grooves.
Midnight Disco Society NYE Masquerade Ball
Radio Bushwick, 22 Wyckoff Avenue (Bushwick)
Normally you’d think a fancy party with masks like a masquerade ball would be expensive and exclusive, and normally it probably would be. But this is Bushwick, so your chance to wear a mask and dance comes much, much cheaper. May as well take it.
Dance and Drag Secret NYE
Secret Project Robot, 389 Melrose Street (Bushwick)
Even if you don’t consider yourself a New Year’s person, 5 DJs, plenty of drag performers, sexy bartenders and dancing until the sun comes up should take the pain out of the holiday.
The Big Dance
Tutu’s, 25 Bogart Street (Bushwick)
You can’t go wrong with a free dance event! DJ’s Lucas Walters, Dirty Boogie, Mama Dom, Big Vic and more will be spinning all night, and if you want an idea of the vibe Tutu’s is going for, check out the ridiculous prom photos from the event’s Facebook page.
A Very Bizarre New Year’s Eve
Bizarre, 12 Jefferson Street (Bushwick)
If you want to make absolutely sure your New Year’s will be weird, no better way to do it than to go to a place named Bizarre. Two floors of music from six DJs will welcome you to 2014 at a Very Bizarre NYE at Bizarre, as will absinthe and dancing until 4am. If you’re still not petered out by then, maybe you didn’t dance hard enough.
New Year’s Eve Midnight Cruise
The Water Table, India Street Pier (Greenpoint)
New Greenpoint floating restaurant The Water Table will have a a midnight cruise shipping off at 10:45pm from their berth in Greenpoint with champagne and bar snacks, and will stay out cruising until 1am. It’s the priciest option on our list, but come on, you get to ring in the New Year on a boat!
Mable’s New Year’s Eve Party
44 Berry Street (Williamsburg)
Ring in 2014 “with a twang” at Mable’s Smokehouse which will host country band The Setting Suns, alongside BBQ and drink specials. Most importantly, there’s no cover.
NYE Bembe 2014
Bembe, 81 S. 6th Street (Williamsburg)
DJ Beto will be spinning Cumbia, Brazilian/African, Soca, Merengue, Tropical Bass, Dancehall and Reggae all night, along with live percussion by Chauncey Yearwood of the High and Mighty Brass Band. You’ll be fueled by an open bar from 8pm – 10:30pm and a champagne toast at midnight.
Super Fun Happy Cry New Years Eve Karaoke Dress Up Party
The Diamond, 43 Franklin Street (Greenpoint)
Even if you’re not into dressing fancy, you might want for this karaoke bash at Greenpoint’s The Diamond, because they’ll be giving you half off your first drink and free champagne at midnight if you are. Plus, if you look good, you feel good.
