NYE at HMI: Make the Most of San Diego New Year’s
New Year’s is just around the corner, and here at Humphreys, we’re very passionate about this holiday. Check out our below guide to the coolest events hitting the city on December 31, from yacht parties to fireworks over the beach, and make the most of your San Diego New Year’s.
If you love spending New Year’s Eve dancing, you’ve come to the right city. San Diegans collectively throw hundreds of dance parties for the occasion, including our on-site event “Dance the Night Away on San Diego Bay.” At this soirée, you can boogie to the music of Detroit Underground and sip champagne. The event is open to non-guests, but if you’re staying at the hotel, you’ll enjoy late checkout and a complimentary breakfast buffet on New Year’s Day when you book our Dance The Nigh Away hotel package.
Or call 619-224-3566 for tickets ($80 per person if booked in advance; $90 per person at the door)
If you prefer to fete New Year’s with a classy cocktail party, you’re in luck — Humphreys also offers the “Elegant Affair” hotel package. For this, you’ll receive two tickets to a night of dancing and music by The Groove Mercenaries, plus champagne, a four-course dinner, and the same late check-out and breakfast perks as those attending Dance the Night Away. The event is also open to those not staying at the hotel (minus the late checkout and breakfast, obviously)
Or call 619-224-3577 for tickets ($140 per person if booked in advance; $150 per person at the door)
On New Year’s Eve, as with other holidays, San Diegans really love throwing yacht parties. You’ll also discover a range of Hornblower Cruise events marking the holiday, including on-board galas and “adventure cruises” with names like “Rock the Boat.” All boast spectacular open bars and incredible dining options, like passed plates and multi-course buffets.
One of San Diego’s most popular events is the New Year’s Eve Club Crawl, hosted by the longest-running clubbing service in the city’s downtown, San Diego Club Crawl. The company partners with exclusive local nightspots to offer a lineup comparable to the iconic Halloween party, which regularly draws upwards of 175 participants.
Maybe you’re only looking to celebrate New Year’s by relaxing on the beach or sipping champagne with friends in a stylish hotel accommodation. If so, forget the big, flashy, over-the-top parties, and let Humphreys plan a smaller-scale event. Our concierge and events teams pride themselves on catering to your every desire and will happily assist with whatever New Year’s get-together you have in mind.
