The Not So Big But Huge NYE Party

Salty Hobo | 1118 Bayview Avenue

Salty Hobo is going back to their roots and keeping it simple. It won’t be a huge party, so don’t expect to find confetti or over the top decorations (or even a cover to get in). What you will find at Salty Hobo on New Year’s Eve are good drinks that are cheap and maybe your midnight kiss. You’ll get a free shot of whiskey when you walk in the door and a free glass of champagne to countdown to midnight. Enjoy DJ Allyn spinning all of your dance hits from the 80s, 90s, and 00s. Find more information here.

Taproom | 1010 Beck Avenue

Celebrate New Year’s Eve all day long at Taproom, a local beer bar in historic St. Andrews. For those that are looking for an earlier end to the night, they’ll be doing a champagne toast and countdown at 9 PM and then another one at midnight!
