Known as The Mile High City because it's exactly that much above sea level, Denver also happens to be the fastest-growing city in America, besides being one of the most liberal spots in the entire country, which, of course, makes for an INSANE party scene. And if that's what happens on a regular night, imagine what Denver's like during New Year's Eve!
Check out some of the best New Year's Eve events in Denver by scrolling below, where you'll find them sorted by popularity. And if that's not enough, check out this unofficial guide to the best New Year's Eve parties in The Mile High City!
Maybe when you think of Denver the image of an elegant black tie affair isn't the first thing that pops into your head, but the city's actually flowing with this type of celebration when it's time to ring in the New Year. One of our favorites is without a doubt the NYE White Rose Gala, at one of the most impressive venues in town, the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. This incredible evening, going on its 15th, is a throwback to Prohibition times, where everything had to be done sneakily as the simple pleasures were largely illegal, and it features the talents of over 40 performers in multiple levels, plus a speakeasy area for your enjoyment.
The Sheraton Denver Hotel is also putting on the Ritz for the biggest party night of the year, with its New Year's Eve Black Tie party, a wild yet elegant celebration including everything from an open bar and multiple DJs and a live band to Las Vegas style casino games and, of course, your necessary champagne toast to welcome 2017.
You'll see there are plenty of amazing parties going on in town, so many you might find it hard to pick just one. That's okay too, with one major crawl giving you a different partying experience, as the 2017 New Year's Eve Limo Bus Crawl Denver will be starting at The Metro. Elsewhere, three different venues will join from one single epic party, and you can enjoy them all by getting tickets for the Three-In-One All-Access NYE2017!
