Our own Livermore Valley is just 40 miles from San Francisco, making Livermore a convenient and less congested home base for Bay Area fun. (Check out our free area vacation guide for more recommendations for the best of Livermore!) If you’re trying to decide where to spend this December 31, why not consider having fun on New Year’s Eve in San Francisco? Here are some highlights…
6th Annual Speakeasy New Year’s Eve Cruise
For five years in a row, the Speakeasy Cruise has been a sold-out event on New Year’s Eve in San Francisco. This cruise takes the most anticipated event of the year and celebrates it on board the Bay’s premier vessel.
This themed event will transport you back to the 20s as you’ll be surrounded by a slew of movers and shakers all decked to the nines. (Flapper attire is highly encouraged!) Get your Gatsby on at blackjack tables, dance the night away with two DJs spinning, and indulge in four hours of open bar.
And the setting is truly the best in San Francisco, with views of Treasure Island, Alcatraz, the Bay Bridge Lights, the Golden Gate Bridge, and of course the skyline.
New Year’s Eve Fireworks Gala Cruise
The New Year’s Eve Fireworks Gala Cruise aboard the luxurious Pinot Noir Yacht of Commodore also offers four hours of open bar and a live DJ. With a more typical New Year’s Eve atmosphere (that is, no costumes), you can still get the benefits of cruising the Bay—plus front-row seats for the midnight fireworks display.
12th Annual NYE In The City
Held at the LUXX Event Space, the 12th Annual NYE in the City features three dance floors and two levels. Seven DJs will spin the night away, and no matter where you are you’ll experience a midnight balloon drop—there are two of them on site!
This is truly an epic party, with confetti blasts, amazing lighting, and premium sound. LED glow sticks add flair with premium party favors will help you remember this amazing night.
Fort Mason Center , Buchanan Street and 2 Marina Boulevard
The Fort Mason Center is one of the classiest places you could spend New Year’s Eve in San Francisco. As the hottest cultural spot in the city, you can enjoy some of the top California DJs in the remarkable setting between the Aquatic Park and the Marina Green.
New Year’s Eve in Livermore
The bright lights of the city are always a draw, but the crowds and traffic are a turn-off for some. Why not celebrate your Bay Area New Year’s Eve right here in Livermore? You’ll find celebrations throughout the city, capped off by a fireworks display.
