New Year’s Eve is always tough. You either love it or hate it, but chances are you don’t want to be sitting at home alone when the ball drops. If you’re down to go big this year, we’ve got the hottest parties in the city lined up for you. Now all you have left to do is choose a dress or suit. Let’s say bye to 2016 (good riddance) in style!
For the Lavalers who don’t want to venture into Montreal on NYE, or for Montrealers who want an awesome venue with equally awesome parking options, Moomba is for you. This year’s party won’t break the bank; tickets are only $39. Canapés will be served all night and are all you can eat, so don’t come too full off dinner!
