Fun Ways to Celebrate New Year’s Eve

The majority of us can agree that we are ready to put 2020 in our rearview mirror. And while we will be celebrating New Year’s Eve a little differently than usual, there are still plenty of ways to have a festive night and ring in the New Year in style (even if that style means rocking your favorite comfy slippers).

Fun and Festive Way to Celebrate New Year’s Eve at Home

Dinner Is Served

If New Year’s Eve usually meant starting the night with dinner with close friends, check if your favorite restaurant is offering their holiday menu to-go. One great option is Wild River Grille. In addition to their special dine-in menu, they are offering a mouthwatering 3-course dinner to-go, complete with champagne.

Maybe you prefer to keep things casual… remember those fuzzy slippers are calling your name. In that case, grab a hot pizza or selection of tacos from one of Reno’s favorite spots.

And a meal isn’t complete without dessert! Reno and Sparks have no shortage of choices for the sweet tooth, from decadent ice cream creations to bakeries and other sweet shops. Order some extras so you can have a sweet treat with breakfast on January 1.

Good News – No Line for the Bar

Any New Year’s Eve celebration calls for some libations! From cocktails to craft beer, anything is possible even when toasting at home. Pick up a cocktail kit from Reno Public House and whip up your own Picon Punch or Negroni. If you want to be your own bartender and show off your mixology skills, try one of Death & Taxes or 10 Torr’s cocktail recipes. More of a craft beer enthusiast? Reno and Sparks have you covered in spades! Check out our brewery map to get started on the hunt for the perfect brew. Most breweries offer their beer in cans, crowlers or growlers so you can it to-go.

Living Room Dance Party

The best parts of enjoying live music from your living room? No blisters from those cute but uncomfortable shoes and you can really cut loose with those dance moves you’ve perfected thanks to TikTok.

A fan favorite during Artown, Pink Martini, invites you to join them for a special New Year’s Eve virtual concert, aptly called Good Riddance 2020! They’ll perform fan favorites as well as holiday hits, old and new.

Stay In, In Style

When you party at home, you can still do it in style! Whether you’re looking for something fancy, vintage-inspired or cozy, there’s a shop in Reno where you’ll find just what you’re looking for. Find something one-of-a-kind at a thrift store like Junkee or The Nest. If you’re looking for something to freshen up your wardrobe that will also be perfect for a night out when you’re able to show it off properly, check out one of Reno’s unique and stylish boutiques. Now is the perfect time to be playful with your style so don’t hold back.

Change of Scenery

If you’re getting tired of looking at your same old furniture, take your ‘night in’ out with a stay at a Reno Tahoe hotel. Something as simple as changing your surroundings can make for a more fun and carefree evening. You can dine, drink and dance around your hotel room in a fluffy robe, and the best part is that you don’t have to worry about making the bed in the morning! And rest assured, area hotels are following stringent health and safety protocols to help you have the best stay possible.

However you choose to celebrate the New Year in Reno Tahoe, we hope you have a safe and fun-filled evening!
