Ring in 2017 in the Ridge!
You’ve survived yet another holiday season and now it’s time to celebrate — or forget — the year that was with one last night of riotous debauchery in Brooklyn’s nightlife mecca. We got you covered with Bay Ridge Night’s definitive guide on the best places to break out the bubbly this New Year’s Eve.
If you’re looking for a raucous affair, head over to Greenhouse Cafe (7717 Third Ave. between 77th and 78th streets) for its midnight disco featuring disc jockeys Tommy Andersen and DJ Neil. Come armed with noisemakers, funky 2017 glasses, and your dancing shoes for a wild night. The boozy bash kicks off with a feast starting at $85, which includes an appetizer, entree, dessert, and most importantly an open bar.
For those who’d rather a sultry evening with a songstress, saunter over to the Brooklyn Firefly (7003 Third Ave. at Ovington Avenue) at 9 pm for a performance by jazz crooner Cristina Gatti of the viral YouTube sensation Postmodern Jukebox, whose videos have more than 6 million views. Dress to impress. Complimentary champagne will be poured at midnight.
Or if rock ’n’ roll is more your speed, set your sights on the Leif Bar (6725 Fifth Ave. at Senator Street) where you can jam with local rockers Cherry Bomb starting at 9 pm. For $60, turn the evening into a blissful blur with an open bar and pub grub — midnight champagne toast included!
And the Wicked Monk (9510 Third Ave. between 95th and 96th streets) will keep the party going with ’80s pop tribute band Radio Daze at 11 pm. By this time, you should be three sheets to the wind — all the better to revel in the midnight balloon drop and enjoy even more bubbly. Partygoers will be charged $15 at the door.
