So you survived Christmas in Sin City. You are all hyped up on holiday treats and loaded up with only-in-Vegas wish list gifts. (Lucky you.) But now you are staring down the ultimate party: New Year’s Eve on the Las Vegas Strip. No pressure.

 

Champagne Gelato

New Years Eve Champagne Gelato at Trevi in Las Vegas Forum Shops

Once a year, dig into champagne-flavored gelato.

Trevi’s delicious five-course New Year’s Eve dinner ($95/person) includes crab bisque in a bread bowl, and lobster ravioli with caviar. But don’t pass up the Forum Shops hot spot’s famous homemade gelato. The champagne flavor is served only during the last week of December.

 

A Sammy Hagar-worthy Party

Sammy Hagar parties here.

Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Cantina, inside Miracle Mile Shops, knows how to party. For New Year’s Eve, the bash will be $300 all-you-can-drink starting at 9:30 pm. Plus, the buffet is loaded up with mini tacos, guac and other Mexican specialties. A dance floor will be cleared in the dining room, so take a few shots and get busy.

 

Standup Comedy

Enter 2014 with a smile.

Who doesn’t want to ring in the New Year with a night of belly laughs? Comedic legend George Wallace has come to the rescue, offering an 8 pm show on New Year’s Eve at Flamingo. “I be thinkin’…”

 

Buffet, Buffet, Buffet…

Indulge at Bacchanal Buffet for New Year's Eve in Las Vegas

It’s New Year’s Eve. Go buck wild.

It’s not Las Vegas without a trip to an endless buffet. The $88-per-person Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace has plans for more than 20 New Year’s Eve-only menu items. And it will serve bottomless champagne all night (plus hangover brunch the next day). Dig into one-night-only specials like filet mignon with truffle soup and smoked salmon with caviar.

 

 

Pure Decadence

Guy Savoy's Artichoke and Black Truffle Soup, Toasted Mushroom Brioche, Black Truffle Butter available for New Year's Eve in Las Vegas

The best $800 dinner you’ll ever have.

Guy Savoy is world famous for his to-die-for truffle soup, and his restaurant at Caesars Palace is obsessed with champagne. So where better to welcome 2014? The early bird $350/person (plus $200 for wine pairing) meal will be one for the memory books. It includes a whole roasted turbot fish and American prime beef tenderloin with black truffle potato puree. Or spring for the later “Prestige” seating. The $500/person (plus $300 wine pairing) nine-course menu features foie gras with crispy quinoa and porcini-bellota ham infusion.

 

Debauchery

Some of the most famous celeb countdowns happened right here.

Count down to midnight at Pure. The Caesars Palace nightclub has famously hosted Britney Spears and other celebs on Vegas’ most important night. This year, hometown hero Ne-Yo will do the honors before taking to the stage for a live performance.

 

Champagne Dreams

Spend New Year's Eve in Las Vegas at Paris Hotel's Eiffel Tower Restaurant

Paris: where the bubbly flows freely.

Eiffel Tower Restaurant at Paris knows that when it comes to New Year’s Eve, it really is all about the champagne. For $200, guests get a panoramic birds-eye view of the Strip from the restaurant’s famous deck. And from 11 pm to midnight, indulge in as much Domaine Chandon as you can drink.

 

R&B Countdown

See Jeremih at Chateau Nightclub for New Year's 2014 in Las Vegas

Jeremih is throwing a party — and you’re invited.

R&B star Jeremih will take the mic at Chateau Nightclub & Gardens at Paris. With the famous Strip fireworks as a backdrop, he will count down to 2014 and then bring the house down with a live performance.

 

Dressed to the Nines

Ring in the New Year 2014  with champagne celebrations at Fizz Caesars Palace

May your New Year’s Eve be soaked in champagne.

Sin City’s newest champagne bar is going all out for the most bubbly-soaked night of the year. On New Year’s Eve at Fizz, $300 includes open bar, Dom Perignon by the glass and passed hors d’oeuvres from 9 pm to midnight. Oh, and the Caesars Palace party spot is kicking up its heels for a “Roaring 20s” theme. So live a little and dress up.

 

Oh La La

New Year's Eve Las Vegas 2014 dinner is served at Central in Caesars Palace

The best 2014 resolution: eat more lobster.

Central at Caesars Palace is entering 2014 with a four-course, $59-per-person dinner. Starters at the French restaurant include a sinful chestnut soup with foie gras, while a standout main is the lobster risotto served with browned butter. For dessert, Michel Richard’s famous chocolate cake should do the trick.
