New Year's Eve in Downtown Cincinnati

There are lots of options for you on New Years Eve Downtown. The weather also looks like it will be playing nice this year as it will be partly cloudy and in the 20's when the ball drops.

If you're on a budget and can't afford to hit up the private parties or cover charges for the bars/clubs, then Fountain Square should be your destination. There will be free ice skating, music, and fireworks. There will also be hot drinks, food, and an "ice bar" set up in the corner of the ice rink that will be serving adult beverages all night long.

If you have the resources and entourage then one of the private parties might be for you. Be sure to check out Bootsy's as it looks to celebrate its first NYE Downtown. You can reserve a table at Bootsy's and enjoy the typical tapas and sushi that Bootsy's is known for. There will also be a DJ and a champagne toast at midnight.

If you're looking for a more neighborhood bar type feel that will have some great food and plenty to drink, then Arnold's might be a good spot for you. For $39.95 you'll get a five course gourmet meal, party favors, and the requisite midnight champagne toast. For music Arnold's will have Lagnaippe entertaining the crowd with their cajun sound.

So no matter what your scene or budget is you can find a spot for you in the heart of Cincinnati on New Year's Eve. Have a great time, and be sure to take advantage of the free cab rides being provided through MADD and AAA on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

A rookie mistake, Rando, everybody (in the know) knows the place to ring in the new year is NORTHSIDE.
Avoid the wind and frostbite you will suffer downtown ! Move up to the pleasant valley of Northside where The Comet serves up the Blue Rock Boys, the Northside Tavern hosts The Bad Veins, the Gypsy Hut brings you the Rumpke Mountain Boys, the Art Damage Lodge dishes up Sylvester Kunstvereen Familie Montex for your listening pleasure, the C&D will be celebrating the "Alcoholidays" as only they know how and Sidewinder will be serving coffee and tea til 10PM to keep you awake and thoroughly cranked til well into 2009.

I try to keep with a theme/brand as much as I can on here with my posts, but you're right...Northside would be another great option to ring in the new year.
