Why would you spend New Year’s Eve in the city when the Hudson Valley has all your bases covered?

Eating and dancing are high on our list of favorite ways to ring in the new year, so here are 3 ways to welcome 2018…especially if eating and dancing are high up on your list, too.

1. Uptown Kingston New Year’s Eve Countdown Celebration

This event is a Hudson Valley institution at this point, and for good reason. Taking place at the intersection of Wall and North Front Streets, the celebration kicks off at 11pm and features live music and a midnight ball drop.

Start off the night at BSP on Wall Street with live music from Rubblebucket and Marco Benevento. Tickets are $40/advance, $50/door. Doors at 8pm, party at 9pm.

2. Dance Party/Buffet with The ReLaTiVes @ New World Home Cooking, Saugerties NY

Anytime we hear the word “buffet” in association with New World Home Cooking, we know it’s going to be good. Chef Ric Orlando’s NYE buffet includes seafood, prime rib, a noodle bar, tamales, and gumbo, just to name a few.

And, you dance off those calories on into the New Year with music from The ReLaTiVes starting at 10pm. 6:30 seating $55 per person, 8:30 seating $69 per person.

3. Second Seating Splurge @ Roundhouse, Beacon NY

We love the idea of spending a stylish NYE at the Roundhouse in Beacon for lots of reasons. First of all, it’s close to the Beacon Metro North station. Secondly, the restaurant is offering two seatings, a three-course option early in the evening, and a four course second seating around 9pm. Finally, there are still rooms available at the Roundhouse hotel, which means you don’t even have to go home when the party’s over.

At $80/person at the first seating and $95/person for the second, this is certainly one of the pricier options for NYE. Quadruple that if you splurge for the wine pairings and the overnight stay. But it’s Hudson Valley New Year’s Eve 2018! If that isn’t a time to pull out all the stops, we don’t know what is.

Enjoy your New Year’s Eve celebrations, Upstaters, and tell us how you plan to party down in the comments!
