Sexy Italian eats, vino and endless boogs under the stars, Si knows how to crank out a good party. If you wanna be an adult, you can tee up a pre-party feast with your crew at their Italo Dinner Party and line your stomach with fresh local seafood, cult dishes and specials off the charcoal grill. Once you’re done (or if you prefer to kick straight off here), you can roll out to the courtyard party for more bevs and a blend of afro-house, UK garage, baile funk and global club cuts to take you into 2024. Secure tickets here.

Varnish On King

Round up your mates and scurry on down to Americana basement bar, Varnish, for a mighty and messy Louisiana Boil Up fit for your last supper of 2023. The massive share-style feast includes fresh local West Australian Cambinata yabbies, clams, mussels, prawns, chorizo, corn and spiced potatoes, all served up right in the middle of your table. You'll also get a frosty Baltar Cerveza or flute of sparkling on arrival, with drinks specials on all night.

The Royal

With entry just $10pp from 10pm (and free before then), there's nothing stopping you from waltzing on into The Royal this NYE. Enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling on arrival plus roaming snacks all night long out on the balcony, plus, they'll also have their glitzy private karaoke room open for the night too. Fitting up to 15 people, you can book one hour slots between 6pm and 11pm for $100—a pretty decent price to belt out some final bangers with your besties if you ask us, especially when you take into account the bottle of prosecco included with your booking.

Keen to start your night with some banging booze and bites? The Royal also has two glorious options downstairs. Willi's Wine Bar invites you to start your night with good wine, tasty little bites and vinyl DJs in their lush corner wine bar. While fleur is dishing up a truly decadent NYE feast with champagne cocktails, caviar and a five-course French menu fit for royalty. Both will get you complimentary entry upstairs at The Royal from 10pm if you're keen to kick on into the new year.

Snack

If you're looking for a fun way to ring in the New Year with a bunch of next-level stages, bars and rides, look no further than Snack. Kicking off at 5 pm, the mega carnival-like NYE event is bringing out the big guns with a massive 30-metre boombox stage, rave caves, foam parties, games, karaoke, fireworks and more.

Motel 6 NYE At The Rechabite

Drawing inspo from the world’s culture capitals, you can jet around the world and back again all in one night at The Rechabite’s massive NYE house party. Lounge, dance, drink and embrace a diverse range of trap, rnb, future beats and soul music throughout the multi-level precinct thanks to the tastemakers at Motel 6. 

Freedom Time

Get your body moving and lose yourself at Freedom Time, an open-air festival returning to the Supreme Court Gardens this New Year's Eve. Serving up the hottest electronic dance acts across several stages, you'll be partying well into the wee hours of 2024 here. Oh and if you're making the journey from south of the river, you can also hop aboard a little pre-fest river boat if you wanna "arrive on a vibe".
