It’s time to start making those New Year’s Eve plans to commemorate 2023. And in Austin, there are plentiful New Year’s Eve parties around, from the Labyrinth-themed dance party at Red River’s Elysium, a wine garden party at Lenoir, a casual one at Drink.Well, a roaring ‘20s cocktail shindig from the Roosevelt Room, and a circus-themed party at Eberly, among others.

All of the events listed take place on Saturday, December 31. Get those tickets as soon as possible because these parties will book up soon.

For other New Year’s-related plans, here are Eater’s guides to New Year’s Eve dinners and New Year’s Day brunch to make sure the 2022-to-2023 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, there are local restaurants and bars offering takeout specials.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
