Madison rings in the New Year with an NYC party

December 22, 2016 by  

For its inaugural year, Destination New Year’s Eve 2016 will be bringing New York City to Wisconsin with its Escape to New York by turning a local grand ball room into Studio 54. It will have that New York atmosphere and food.

Xavier Joshua will be the DJ for the evening and a 10-piece big band – Talk of the Town – will be serenading the guests. Guests will be dancing all night and complimentary champagne will be flowing.

Ice skating will be available at the mini Rockefeller Center ice rink for those desiring a little change of pace. Skaters may want to take pictures for future poster printing.

To usher in 2017, Madison will have its own ball drop, and this venue will provide special access to the countdown and view of the drop.

At midnight, the event will have a ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.”

Before guests leave they will be asked to vote to decide where in the world the Destination NYE 2017 will represent. Next year, everyone may be coming to an evening in Bangkok, Paris, or Morocco.

The event will take place in the Grand Ballroom of the Edgewater at 1001 Wisconsin Place here in Madison on December 31. Festivities will begin at 9:00 pm and wrap up around 2:00 am. Guests must be over 21.
