The Ultimate (and Last-Minute!) New Year’s Eve Plan

Because having a ball on the town beats watching the ball drop on your couch.

While you already have your perfect outfit picked out and New Year’s resolutions ready to go, you still haven’t figured out how to end the 2010s on a high. Cue panic mode? Not so fast. We’ve figured out the perfect night out in one of our fave Brooklyn nabes, Williamsburg. All you have to do is show up and be ready to rage.

EAT: Upscale Delights at Bar Beau

Past the front room’s espresso machines, down an unassuming hallway, is a sharp back dining space making sharper dishes during a special three-course dinner for NYE. The food lineup is the perfect final meal of the decade: cured arctic char and crème fraîche in buckwheat blini sleeping bags, rib-sticking Japanese delights like udon and katsu sandos, and a citrus curd that will help you forget it’s wintertime. 61 Withers Street

PLAY: And Dance All Night at Kinfolk 90 

Spend the first hours of 2020 vibing inside this chill industrial space. Local DJs including the NY Fox and Kola Champagne will be spinning vintage vinyl and soulful tunes until the last night owl exits the dance floor—which means you might want to wear your comfiest kicks for the night ahead. 90 Wythe Avenue

DRINK: All the Beer at Grimm

Brews, bites, and beats. What else would you expect from a NYE bash at this artisanal taproom? A disco-fueled playlist sounds even better when there’s a beer-centric open bar involved, including guest taps from Hudson Valley breweries and limited-edition debuts at the stroke of midnight. 990 Metropolitan Avenue

RECOVER: With a Movie Marathon at Nitehawk Cinema

It might hurt a bit to see the light of day after 2020’s first sunrise. Hole up inside one of our favorite dine-in movie theaters for the day instead and eat your weight in truffle popcorn and queso. 136 Metropolitan Avenue
