On New Year’s Eve, more is more and bigger is always better. This is not a night to cut corners or skimp on details. Yes, you need that sequin sheath dress, and yes you should definitely splurge on the bowtie and top hat. If you want to celebrate New Year’s Eve in style, you must dress the part.
When choosing a NYE party, make sure you consider all entertainment factors. You need a festive location, a spacious venue, upbeat music, and most importantly, enough food and drinks to keep you raging into the New Year. Another element to consider is transportation, or even better, the lack there of. Why battle the crowds for cabs when you can book a hotel room for the after party?
The Marriott Gaslamp Quarter is hosting the annual Bottoms Up bash, a top pick for New Year’s Eve in San Diego. The NYE spirit will take over the entire downtown hotel, from the street level restaurant and bar, to the outdoor rooftop lounge perched 22 stories above the city lights. And don’t forget about the private suites inside where anything goes.
All Bottoms Up NYE party guests will be treated to the same entertainment perks and amenities, but your experience is in your own hands. Here’s our recommended party path: Begin by filling up on unlimited food at Soleil @k, including your choice of a buffet-style seafood bar, street taco stand, sushi bar, carving and salad stations. And now it’s time to drink; start sipping from the hosted bar at Latitude Lounge, while DJ David Cutler entertains the lobby level. As the night creeps closer to midnight, hop in the elevator and cruise up to ALTITUDE Sky Lounge for more hosted cocktails and dancing under the stars with DJ Rage. The rooftop will feature additional food stations and fire pits to keep you warm. A complimentary sparkling wine toast at midnight will be provided to all patrons.
To complete your night, book a hotel room to share with that special someone or a group of friends. A discounted room rate of $299/night is available to guests, with the purchase of a separate party ticket. Bottoms Up NYE party tickets are $150 per person, including hosted food and drinks all night. The Marriott San Diego Gaslamp Quarter is located at 660 K Street.
