Your New Year’s Plans Are Inside

The weekend has already begun practicing for midnight.

A Studio 54 Party at Space 57
DISCO

A Studio 54 Party at Space 57

Things you love: disco sexiness. The circus. Photo booths. Enter the NYE party at the Revere Hotel’s Space 57, outfitted with replica Studio 54 props, barely dressed staff, vintage disco visuals projected on a 30-foot screen and trapeze artists doing their thing. Good luck catching one for the midnight kiss.

Dec 31, 9pm-3am, $85, Space 57 at Revere Hotel, 200 Stuart St, 617-482-1800, tickets here

UD Hookup: Enter promo code “UD” and land tickets for 25% off. Happy New Year.

James Bond-ing at Storyville
YEAR. NEW YEAR.

James Bond-ing at Storyville

Storyville’s throwing a Skyfall party, where you’ll sport your best Bond tux (and bring a leggy date) for two DJs, late-night snacks (grilled cheese) and VIP packages named after Bond films. Think: magnum bottles of bubbly and vodka, table service and the appearance of being licensed to kill.

1920s Great Gatsby Opulence at Towne
SO GREAT

1920s Great Gatsby Opulence at Towne

Meanwhile, Towne is going all Jay Gatsby this year. Meaning: a 10-piece band playing era-correct jams (e.g., Louis Armstrong), a staff decked out in 1920s attire (one word: flappers), a Rolls-Royce ice sculpture raw bar (yes, really) and even an ice luge. Which were huge back then.

Parisian Burlesque-ing at Bond
STRONG BOND

Parisian Burlesque-ing at Bond

Or for some Moulin Rouge risqué-ness, Bond is going 1930s-style French burlesque theater. Picture: candelabra-lined walls, red velvet cushions in the VIP lounges and all-red lighting. The staff will even be scantily clad while burlesque dancers perform throughout the night. Try not to get the two confused.

Dec 31, 9pm, no cover, cash bar, Bond, 180 Lincoln St, reserve at 617-956-8765

Dancing and Bubbly at Abby Lane
LANE’S WORLD

Dancing and Bubbly at Abby Lane

Or if you’ve been meaning to make it to Abby Lane, this is your New Year’s–entrenched chance. Grab an Italian leather sofa upstairs for champagne and small bites from the Hell’s Kitchen alum, before testing the mettle of your suit on the dance floor. Remember: silk is always best for break dancing.
