Manhattan New Years Parties & Restaurants 2021 / 2022 NYC
New Years Parties & Restaurants on the Upper East Side UES, Midtown, West & East Village, Upper West Side UWS, SoHo, Tribeca & Downtown in Manhattan NYC
December 18, 2021 / Manhattan New Years Eve Parties & Restaurants NYC / Manhattan Buzz NYC.
As happens every year, there will be a number of great New Years parties in Manhattan preceding and following the dropping of the ball at Times Square.
New Years Eve occurs on a Friday this year. While New Years Eve is one big party, it's important to keep in mind, that like St. Patrick's Day, all the amateurs come out to play [it's not just the Irish who are out drinking on St. Patrick's Day]. So some measure of caution is advised and you have to be careful.
This year we also have the lingering effects of the pandemic to contend with, and a mandatory mask mandate goes into effect in NYC and NYS from December 13, 2021 until January 15, 2022 - at which time it will be re-evaluated. An early rsvp is highly recommended given the environment and most, if not all, places want proof of CoVid vaccination.
The following are a number of different New Years restaurants in Manhattan NYC where you might consider booking a reservation.
