Sip + Play's New Year's Eve Picks

I have a love hate-relationship with New Year's Eve. I love, love, love the parties, but New Year's Eve is so, so, over-priced. Worse, people who don't usually drink, drink way too much. The EpiCentre and NC Music Factory will provide a variety of parties in one-place. Below are my picks for parties from my favorite spot to kid friendly events. Have fun, and please be safe! 

Tonya's Picks:

Soul GastroLounge is my go-to low-key spot for everything. Always great music, fun people and delicious drinks. Details.

Rich and Bennett presents three parties tonight at #MOFO New Year's Bash. You can do all three or choose your style. There's the Southside VIP party, the more low-key Angry Ale or Craft Beer Tent parties. Details.

The Roxbury's 13th Annual New Year's Eve Back to the Future Bash includes NYE & glow favors, champagne toast, four bars and multiple Dance Floors

Black Parties

Kid Friendly
CLT New Year's Eve

The city's official celebration starts at 6 p.m. in Romare Bearden Park. Revelers can decorate a crown to wear for the evening's countdown. The family-friendly event includes crafts, games, food trucks and a DJ. The finale is the lighting of the Queen City crown and a fireworks display at midnight. This is an alcohol-free event.

Public parking is available at surface lots and parking decks throughout Uptown Charlotte at market rates. Mass transit options, including the Lynx Blue Line, Lynx Gold Line streetcar and CATS buses will be available as well. 

Street Closures: Mint Street from MLK to Third streets will close at 9 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 31 and will remain closed until 3 a.m. Friday, Jan. 1
