IRIS New Year's Eve Experience
If you're a fan of electronic dance music, or EDM as it's known by listeners, you won't find a better New Year's Eve party than the IRIS New Year's Eve Experience at Believe Music Hall in Atlanta. Here you'll get to hear some of Atlanta's top EDM DJs, as well as enjoy a laser lights show, free giveaways, free party favors, and up to $5,000 in prizes.
What makes this event even more special is the venue. Opened in May 2018, Believe Music Hall is Atlanta's newest nightclub. Built inside a century-old church, the three-story, 15,000-square-foot venue provides an awesome sound and an atmosphere unlike any other. Tickets range from $25 to $75, and parking is $5.
The Blind Pig Parlour Bar
Draped in Victorian-era decor with a modern swag, the Blind Pig Parlour Bar is a taste of today mixed with Prohibition-era speakeasy. For $105, you can go to their New Year's Eve bash, which is sure to be one of the best in the city.
Admission gets you an open bar from 9 p.m. until 2 a.m., party favors, appetizers, hors-d'oeuvres, desserts, and a complimentary Champagne toast at midnight. If you're a beer drinker, you might want to think about going for a premium cocktail, as the Blind Pig serves up some of the best in the city.
To keep the party rocking until late, the Blind Pig's house band, Fukushima Tuna, will be playing all of your favorite songs, ranging from rock to Top 40 and more.
Wherever you decide to go for your New Year's Eve bash, make sure to drink responsibly.
