Schedules are already packed these days as party planning goes into full swing for the festive season. We’re pretty sure the biggest party of the year, New Year’s Eve, is on every young professionals agenda, so we’ve begun to hunt down the must-attends taking place around Vancouver to help you plan the ultimate 2014 NYE bash. Whether you’re looking for a swanky soiree or something a little more low-key (though Notable, of course), here’s where to toast to 2014 in style…
Get down like Gatsby at the 2014 New Year Gatsby Gala taking place at the Rocky Mountaineer Station. Ring in 2014 in style by channelling a time of opulence circa the 1920s – a decade dedicated to excess, decadence and adventure. It all goes down at The Rocky Mountaineer’s spacious location, featuring 34-foot vaulted ceilings, a full-length glass wall and plenty of room to mingle. Be entertained by Show Girls in true 20s attire, take in DJ beats, enjoy the Ten Souljers live music and indulge in the Deluxe Dessert Buffet (complete with Belgium chocolate fountain). Full bar service will be offered as will drink specials and plenty of other party favours to help make the night one to remember.
Shangri-La Hotel is set to host a stunning NYE Gala to ring in 2014 presented by Ciroc Vodka. This swanky downtown luxury hotel is set to welcome guests for an evening of exciting New Year’s celebrations (event will sell out well in advance, so don’t delay). There are several VIP rooms, a midnight champagne toast, signature Market by Jean-Georges canapés to be had and DJs on hand to keep the party going until late. Make your way through the grand ballroom, mingle with friends in their stunning heated solarium as you take in the cityscape, and ring the year ahead. Looking for more event details? Click here.
Check out One Night Stand VI at the Rickshaw Theatre and ring in 2014 alongside hundreds of others as you take in some killer live music by standout performers. Catch Mother Mother, Said The Whale, Adaline, The Belle Game and Yukon Blonde – to name a few. Now in its 6th year, this party is a great option for those partiers looking for something a little less ordinary to help ring in the New Year. Learn more and purchase tickets here.

Adding to the mix of festivities, check out their Down the Rabbit Hole NYE 2014 event featuring stand-out performances courtesy of Sweet Soul Burlesque, DJ Dubconscious and Peter Allgood. Drink specials will keep the fun times flowing at this boisterous New Year’s affair you’ll definitely want to partake in.
