All The Ways To Say “Get Out” To 2016 and Ring In 2017 On Melrose

Are you SO ready to kick 2016 to the curb? Well, join your friends on Melrose Avenue on December 31 to bid this year farewell and welcome 2017 with open arms, full belly, and a happy buzz!

 

THE PARLOR

With New Year’s Eve on a Saturday, might as well start the party early! The Parlor, one of L.A.’s best spots for sports-watching, is airing the Peach Bowl (Washington vs. Alabama) at noon, and then the Fiesta Bowl (Ohio State vs. Clemson) at 4p. They’ll close around 8p after the game, so get in there and enjoy some football with tasty food and drinks.

SPARTINA

The beautiful Spartina is open for dinner on New Year’s Eve. From 5:30p – 8:30p, the regular menu will be available. That changes from 8:30p – 11:00p to a prix fixe menu at $75 per person which includes a glass of Prosecco Superiore. The prix fixe dinner can only be secured with a reservation and credit card guarantee, so call the restaurant to claim your seat!

SNAKE PIT

What’s a New Year’s Eve celebration without hats and party favors? Well, it ain’t something happening at Snake Pit, that’s for sure. There will be hats. There will be party favors. There will be a midnight toast. And there will be a giant bar stocked with booze (all the whiskeys), a kitchen full of food, and tunes in your ears. Get there early – the place fills up fast!
