It’s about time you get your gal pals together and plan out your New Years Eve in Perth. But a night of dressing up, popping bottles, and celebrating the year that was,planning it can become more effort than it’s worth. From club nights to watching fireworks, there’s plenty happening around the city if you don’t already have plans. Thankfully, we’ve got a carefully curated list of events, so you can focus more on what to wear – playsuit or dress?
#1 Bar Pop NYE Party
Where: Bar Pop, Northbridge
Popping up on the NYE scene this year, Bar Pop is hosting one huge party in the heart of Northbridge. And considering how quickly it sold out last year, we’d suggest you get your hands on some tickets ASAP. Kicking off as the sun goes down at 5pm, there will be cocktails, eateries, sun decks and not one, but two main stages. So you shouldn’t have any trouble missing the big countdown. If you are feeling game, they have a New Year’s Day event, too.
Tickets start at $110. Find out more here.
#2 Block Party
Where: Multiple venues in Leederville
Rustle up your neighbours, friends and other companions and head over to the Leederville for the biggest block party yet! The event spreads across six venues and has six venues. Taking over the Vincent Street Car Park as well as Bills Bar, Blue Flamingo, The Garden, Babushka and The Tiny Club, the hardest part will be deciding which stage you’ll want to hang out at first!
Tickets are $44. Find out more here.
#3 Seasons NYE at Ascot
Where: Ascot Racecourse, Ascot
See Ascot Racecourse transform into a custom-build Seasons venue this Perth NYE. Celebrations begin around 5pm, with a line up of food trucks to curb your hunger, frosé bars to cleanse your palette and a silent disco to get your groove on before 2018 comes to an end.
