6 NYE Parties in Detroit

Watch the "D" drop at Beacons Park or dance in a vintage steam room at the Schvitz.

This list of New Year's Eve Parties in Detroit has something for everyone. 

DTE Energy The Drop, Motor City NYE 2018

There isn’t a ballroom big enough to house what you will experience this New Year’s Eve! The Drop is located in the heart of Downtown Detroit at Detroit’s newest social gathering place — BEACON PARK with an evening festival with something for everyone!

At midnight witness a visual spectacle unrivaled in all of the Midwest when we lower The “D” to countdown to 2018.

After 7 amazing years, we have outgrown our previous home at Campus Martius Park & Cadillac Square and invite you to ring in the new year with us at Beacon Park, the newest addition to the Downtown Detroit Parks. Located just a few blocks northwest of Campus Martius in the Theatre/Arena District at Grand River & 1st Streets.

Activities begin at 4:00 pm with live entertainment on the main stage, fire pits, horse-drawn carriage rides, kids zone and much, much more!"

Haute to Death Surrealist Ball

“Dance all night. Schvitz all day.” Explains it all.

Haute to Death will turn the Schvitz, Detroit’s historic health club, into a dance club to ring in the New Year. Surrealist/Masquerade dress code is strictly enforced. The website reads, “Seriously, no entry for those who don’t bring their freakiest, most glamorous, and/or all-out hedonistic looks.” Steam it out the next day at the bathhouse. The party stops for a quick disco nap around 5 am and will reopen from 12 pm- 8 pm for steaming.

Tickets are $50 for New Year’s Eve or $75 for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
