With a vibrant music culture, glittering riverfront views, a rich partying heritage, and one of the hottest live entertainment scenes in the country, New Orleans reigns supreme as one of the nightlife capitals of America. The city offers up a range of different New Year’s Eve events, including live concerts, velvet-rope parties, and riverfront bashes, and is constantly teeming with thousands of fun-loving partygoers.
