With New Years Eve right around the corner I’ve heard a lot of people asking their friends “what are you doing for New Years?”. That seems to be the common question lately and yet people really just “don’t know…”
I understand that everyone in Barrie might not be around and want to go elsewhere, so to give everyone some ideas of what to do and where to go, we’ll provide some New Years nightlife in the Toronto / GTA area.
The Drake Hotel – 1150 QUEEN ST. W. TORONTO, ONTARIO M6J1J3 - View Map
To start off, this is probably one of my personal favourite places to go in Toronto, The Drake Hotel. From what I can see, there is a dress code in place and people are expected to slip into something fine. There will be live music with Roberto Rosenman, Dr Baggie, and DJs Andy Capp and Rod Skimmins.
Tickets are about $75 per person but there are discounts for booking in advanced and to the first 100 people. If you have a special someone out there, this is the place to take them for that special New Year kiss.
For more information visit the official website of The Drake Hotel.
Republik Nightclub – 259 RICHMOND ST. W. TORONTO, ONTARIO M5V 3M6 - View Map
This is going to be an interesting event, the Republik Nightclub NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY 2009, featuring Tony Monaco to host the evening live on Z103.5, Toronto’s hit radio station. The main floor will be presenting some house, R&B, Mash Up and Euro style music, then moving onto the Vision Room, will be playing Hip Hop and R&B with DJ Dave Campbell. This venue is going to be packed, so get your tickets quickly before it’s too late! Tickets are $45.00 before December 30th and they’ve sold out in advanced every year. So if I were you I wouldn’t show up at the door on New Years Eve expecting to get in.
There is a semi-formal dress code and the doors open sharp at 9:00PM. Also, for all those party animals out there, the Republik doesn’t close until 4:00AM the next morning so bring your drinking hats! Oh yeah.. semi-formal, drinking hats.
Six Degrees Lounge – 2335 YONGE ST. TORONTO, ONTARIO M4P 2C8 - View Map
There will be over 800 people coming in from the Toronto/GTA area to attend the Six Degrees Lounge event in Toronto. There are 3 different tickets for you to select, ranging in price from $35 per ticket upwards of $75 if you need to make travel arrangements with them to get to the location. Apparently everyone attending is really going to get their monies worth with a lot of food and booze, music, prizes and other giveaways.
They promise for people attending that their lounge is to be a truly unique & intimate experience with an elite upscale atmosphere and over 12,000 SQ FT of chocolate theme VIP areas, stainless steel bars and plush leather couches. This event has a lot to it, so click the image for more information or visit the Six Degrees Lounge website.
