Ten Best New Year's Eve 2017 Parties in Broward and Palm Beach
No night carries as much pressure as New Year's Eve. If the previous year pissed all over you, you still have one night to make up for it. If the previous year was a banner one, you feel pressed to end it with a bang for fear of not rolling into the next year with such good fortune. Luckily, we live in a sprawling region jam-packed with places to toast champagne glasses as you ring in the New Year. Here are the ten best New Year's Eve parties in Broward and Palm Beach.
Once Is Not Enough at America's Backyard
This outdoor Fort Lauderdale party figures if people love one countdown, they'll go gaga over four. For each time zone in the continental USA, America's Backyard will count down to midnight. Be close to someone you want to kiss at 12 a.m. for the East Coast, 1 a.m. for central, 2 a.m. for the mountains, and 3 a.m. for the West Coast. Tickets cost $35 in advance and $40 at the door. There will be an open bar until midnight and a complimentary champagne toast when the ball drops (Fort Lauderdale time).

Billy Joel at BB&T Center
The Piano Man enjoyed spending last New Year's Eve performing at BB&T Center so much he decided to make a return engagement. Last year's Billy Joel New Year's Eve show had celebrities in the audience like Howard Stern and Jimmy Kimmel singing along to "We Didn't Start the Fire" and "Uptown Girl."
Night at the Carnival at Stache
Stache Drinking Den is having a Brazilian Carnival theme for its New Year's Eve party. The $65 cover charge includes a premium open-bar package, gourmet finger foods, live Brazilian carnival dancers, a balloon drop, and a champagne toast.
NYE '80s Prom Night at Rhythm & Vine
Though we are now almost in the 2020s, there's something about the '80s that our society can't let go of. Maybe it's the new-wave music or the mullets or the pastels, but Rhythm & Vine is going to soak it all in. $75 gets you access to the premium open bar from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.
