Atlanta’s Gay New Year’s Eve Parties

Year in, year out. Another year older and deeper in debt? Turn over a new leaf as Atlanta turns it up and turn it out for a trés gay New Year’s Eve.

By Mike Fleming

By all accounts, 2016 has been a tough one for lots of us – its 16 Best Songs notwithstanding. Whatever your plans to wipe it away in the New Year, it starts by blowing out the old and ringing in the new. True to form, we have our eye on all the ways to do that this year.

From annual throwdowns with a reputation for maxing out their celebrations, to new traditions in the making, every party gets its stakes raised for 2017. That’s because the night itself falls on a Saturday, ensuring that even people who don’t always have the 31st off will join the rest of us out in force.

Clear your calendars, it’s going to be a bumpy night. Here’s where to find all your options and see which one (or ones) you’ll hit, as well as the lucky location that will have you in the house at midnight.

Here’s every December 31 party we could find at our favorite bars, clubs and other venues this year.
