NYE in DC is an awesome time but you definitely want to think ahead regarding transportation. Many partygoers decide to get a hotel near the party they are attending, and thus limit the amount of transportation they will need.
360 Nightlife has partnered with Lyft for the last 2 years to offer free ride credit to help patrons get to and from the party safely. You can simply follow this link and receive $10 in ride credit ($5 each way for the first 2 rides). In addition to Lyft, Uber is plentiful in Washington DC and there will definitely be no shortage of Uber drivers.
Although the 31st is busy, it is not impossible to catch plain old DC taxis. They are pretty much everywhere and will be in full force. In the past, the roads in DC are generally tame for NYE, with traffic congested in areas like Adams Morgan and Georgetown because of the concentration of venues and partygoers. Our advice is to hop out the cab and walk a few blocks if the party you are attending is in one of those areas. You will save some time.
Metro has just announced they will be keeping lines open until 2 AM for New Year's Eve. Since NYE falls on a Monday, this is great news. Normally, the metro would close at 11 PM on Monday, with some stations having their last train departing at 10:30. With this time extension, you can get in and out of the city easier.
For NYE 2018 - 2019, we are producing 6 events that will fit the needs of any group. When figuring out what to do on this important night, it is wise to rely on event planners with experience in creating lasting and memorable moments. Afterall, December 31st only comes once a year, and it should launch you into the next year in a positive light. Ticket prices generally rise closer to the New Year's Eve, and tables sell out in advance. To get the best deals and ensure availability, it's best to act sooner than later.
When picking the right NYE party, you need to consider many things including theme, crowd and venue. Hotel parties can be great, but they can also be extremly crowded and set you up to wait in line after line. In addition, an intimate restaurant celebration might sound ideal for the big night, but it can be a bit too tame with less fun involved. We believe the sweet spot is right in the middle. Our parties are in both large and mid-sized locations all around DC and offer complete open bar options and more affordable 1-hour open bar along with appetizers options. Each of our events attracts some of DC's most diverse and beautiful crowds with ticket prices that are fair and won't break your bank (unless you wait until the last minute). The goal is to give you the best of both worlds, a great experience at a reasonable price. Remember, the most important tip for a successful NYE is to stay safe and have fun!
