Times Square is one of the most popular places in the world to see in the New Year. Site of the annual Ball Drop, the universally renown countdown to midnight that symbolises the launch of the New Year, the celebration has come along way since the first event took place there in 1904. Now a major six-hour-long extravaganza that is attended by hundreds of thousands of people and viewed by millions more around the world, the party includes live music performances, celebrity guests and tons of free giveaways. For many out-of-town visitors who go there it is a once in a lifetime experience. For many locals it is the highlight of their year.
Though the main buzz and function happens in the major commercial intersection of Time Square all of the bars, restaurants and clubs have their own events too. This year some of the best will be taking place at the BB King Blues Club NYC at 237 West 42nd Street, Chevy’s NYC at 259 West 42nd Street, Lucky Cheng’s NYC at 240 West 42nd Street and AMC 42nd Street NYC at 234 West 42nd Street, a venue which has been voted #1 Party in Times Square on account of its 6 floors of custom nightclubs.
