Champagne comes with the territory on New Years Eve. To do your night right in Vancouver, you’ll need to have a glass of bubbly or two. Thankfully, the city doesn’t disappoint on that front (does it ever?). This year there are a ton of NYE parties that include a midnight toast with champagne, although not everyone will offer the complimentary variety. And if they do, sometimes their math isn’t perfect. So take a note out of our book: If you are given your drink ticket for a free glass of champagne, grab it EARLY!
If you are looking for a classier Vancouver event that serves up free bubbly, the NYE 2014 Waterfront Gala has topped the NYE lists for 19 years. The event caters to an older crowd who will be rocking all night to 80s and 90s throwbacks. Pay some attention while you shake it, though, because you wouldn’t want to spill your precious glass of toasting champagne on any of the good-looking people in snazzy suits and hot cocktail dresses.
Want hotel with that champagne? The world famous 5-star Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Vancouver will be hosting their Shangri-la NYE Gala again this new years. Presented by Ciroc Vodka, this classy affair caters to 25+ gents and 23+ ladies dressed in their absolute best. Known as one of the most luxurious hotels in Vancouver, the party boasts a ballroom, two VIP rooms, a heated solarium, multiple DJs spinning tunes and, of course, a glass of champagne included in your ticket. Don’t miss it.
Looking for old school glamour? The Gatsby Gala at the Station at the Rocky Mountaineer Station will be celebrating NYE by transporting guests back to the Roaring 20s! The incredible venue, perfectly suited to mirror NYC’s old Grand Central Station, will host 1,100 guests and showcase show-girls, specialty cocktails and an indoor new years firework display. Oh, and did we mention the complimentary champagne toast? Missing this would be a sin.
At the stroke of midnight everyone in Vancouver (and all over the world for that matter!) will be holding up their glass of champagne to toast 2014. Don’t be stuck without a glass yourself!
