New Year’s Eve is right around the corner! The opportunity to welcome a new decade is something that only happens a handful of times in our lives, and you probably won’t want to miss this one.
For many, New Year’s is a time to realign priorities that may have wandered over the course of the year. For others, the holiday is simply a time to reign in the New Year in style, starting things off with a toast and a midnight kiss for good luck. Whether you’re looking for a family friendly affair or the party of the decade, we’ve got your best 2019 NYE parties in Spokane, in no particular order!
Puttin’ on the Ritz (by the Spokane Symphony)
Where: The Historic Davenport Hotel
When: 9:00pm – 1:00am
Arguably one of the priciest parties in town, Puttin’ on the Ritz is sure to be worth it. Even at $150 a ticket, the event sold out last year, and may well do the same this year. You’ll want to be sure to get your tickets in advance. This event will feature live Big Band music, an Elvis impersonator, door prizes, a three-course meal, no-host bars, and a complimentary champagne toast at midnight. Admission: $150 online using the link above.
Where: Lil Sumthin’ Saloon
When: 9:00pm – 2:00am
This combo event is a great way to ring in the New Year while also supporting the opening of a new local business. Lil Sumthin’ Saloon is a Texas themed bar that will be officially opening on New Year’s Eve. To launch, they’re throwing a party unlike anything else you’ll find in Spokane this NYE.
In addition to live music, they’ll also be hosting a cowpoke costume contest (complete with a $100 prize and plaque on the wall for the winner). Uncle Nearest Distillery is partnering in the party, so expect creative cocktails to sip while you enjoy art displays from Latinx Artes. You’ll also receive a complimentary champagne toast at midnight. Admission: $5.
Where: Lucky You Lounge
When: 9:00pm – 12:00am
If you’re more Atari than XBox, then Lucky You Lounge has the perfect party for you. Get out your scrunchies and fishnet tank tops for this themed event – 80’s attire is encouraged. Make sure to bring your dancing shoes, because there will be an 80’s cover band playing all the classics. Admission: $10 online using the link above.
Where: Riverfront Park
When: 8:00pm – 12:00am
This family friendly event includes two fireworks displays and two light shows. The first light show will take place from 8:00-9:00pm, and will culminate in a 12 minute fireworks display. This is perfect for families with younger children who want to participate in the NYE celebrations in Spokane without totally throwing off sleep schedules. The Ribbon Skate Park will also have extended hours, staying open until 10:00pm on NYE.
There will be a second light show from 11:00-Midnight, with a fireworks display starting at midnight to celebrate the arrival of 2020. Admission: free.
Where: The Big Dipper Spokane
When: 7:30pm – 1:00am
Roaring 20s is a common theme in New Year’s parties this year (and with good reason!), but the party at The Big Dipper Spokane is sure to be one for the ages. The Big Dipper will have two bands – Random Generation and GS3, so dancing is definitely on the table (but not literally on the table, please). There will also be a no-host bar and free champagne toast at midnight. This is a limited space event, so be sure to reserve tickets in advance. Children are allowed at this event. Admission: $15 online using the link above.
