Where's the Bubbly? Best New Year's Eve Parties in San Francisco

Whether you're celebrating the end of 2013, the beginning of 2014, or the invention of champagne, it's all about the amazing New Year's parties in San Francisco. But if you don't have plans for the most festive night of the year yet, don't fret. We've put together this list of the hottest New Year's Eve events in San Francisco, so all that's left for you to do on the 31st is pick one and have the night of your life.



Join San Francisco's most down-to-party EDM fans and club-kids, and rage the night away at Eye Heart SF's Streets of San Francisco: New Year's Eve. This year Moby headlines the event following in the footsteps of other phenomenal DJs like Steve Aoki, A-Trak, Sam Isaac, and DJ Craze. In addition to fantastic DJ sets, this party also features breathtaking visual displays and boasts the best bartender-to-guest ratio in the city, making it the perfect destination for anyone looking to bring in the New Year with a little bumping and grinding on the dance floor.


Get ready to throw down international style at the Westin St. Francis's Passport to the World New Year's Eve Ball. The party's glamorous attendees travel around the world as they move through the venue's eight themed rooms dancing to a combination of music provided by live bands and top DJs. The biggest balloon drop in the city will signify that the year has come to an end, but the party will continue until the wee hours of the morning.


One of the evening's hottest LGBT parties, New Year's Eve at the Sundance Saloon offers guests the opportunity to bring in the New Year with a traditional southern flare. The ballroom of Market Street's Whitcomb Hotel sets the perfect backdrop for country-loving party goers to two-step, line dance, and waltz their way right in to 2014. So bedazzle those cowboy boots, and join the party.



On a night when most people spend big bucks to claim their spot at a single venue, it may come as a pleasant surprise to know that is offering a more budget friendly alternative. Participants of their New Year's Eve Crawl 'Til the Ball Falls pub crawl ring in the New Year at several of San Francisco's hottest bars, enjoy awesome drink specials, and pay only a fraction of what it would cost to get into just one nightclub. It's a great way to celebrate without breaking the bank, so you can make sure to start off the year on a good foot.



What's better than taking a moonlit stroll? Taking a moonlit cruise, of course. And when better to enjoy a night of fun and dance on the water than the last and biggest party night of the year? Featuring a lineup of top DJs, plenty of dancing space, and an open bar on a $10 million vessel, New Year's Eve aboard the San Francisco Spirit ends 2013 with an unconventional bang.

In 2013, the best night of the year is the last. Don't miss out on your chance to toast in the New Year at any of these awesome parties and have an evening you won't forget.
