It’s time to start making those New Year’s Eve plans to commemorate the start of 2024. And in Austin, there are plentiful New Year’s Eve parties around, such as the Labyrinth-themed dance party at Red River’s Elysium, a carnival wine garden party at Lenoir, a roaring ‘20s cocktail shindig from the Roosevelt Room, and a 1960s British-themed party at Eberly, many hotel festivities, and much more.

All of the events listed take place on Sunday, 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 2023-to-2024 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.
