It’s time to start making those New Year’s Eve plans to commemorate 2022. We’ve rounded up the best New Year’s Eve parties in Austin, including a Labyrinth-themed dance party at Red River’s Elysium, roaring ‘20s cocktail shindig from the Roosevelt Room, a galactic rodeo at Eberly, and even a free party at hotel San Jose on South Congress. All of the events listed take place on Friday, December 31.
For other New Year’s-related plans, here is Eater’s guide to New Year’s Eve dinners and New Year’s Day brunch, to make sure the 2021-to-2022 transition is as delicious and celebratory as possible and that the inevitable hangover is taken care of, as only the best of Austin’s restaurants can provide. For those opting to stay home for New Year’s Eve, plenty of local restaurants and bars are offering takeout specials.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each business is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurant themselves.
