New Year’s Eve is an event everyone enjoys for the enthusiasm, lightheartedness and cheer that it brings to a night on the town.  It’s the pinnacle for downtown entertainment, no doubt about it!  Here is a sampling of just some of our favorites.  Our only regret is that we can’t hit every spot in a single night!  So peruse, pick your favorites, and have a great night celebrating 2014!

Jack Daniel’s Bash on Broadway: New Year’s Eve in Music City

Where else in Nashville can you have a shot at being on live national television, other than our city’s official New Year’s celebration, which is now part of ABC’s Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest. “Music City’s New Year’s Eve Bash on Broadway has grown into one of the best New Year’s Eve parties in the world. It’s a free party where you can ring in the new year with amazing new music and thousands of your closest friends. And with a star-packed lineup that includes Lady Antebellum, Gavin DeGraw, The Apache Relay, and Kristen Capolino – it’s sure to be the best New Year’s Eve celebration around. More people, more music, and more fun every year. Join us! Ring in the new year with Nashville,” enthuses Nashville’s hard working and productive team at the Convention and Visitor’s Corporation!

General Jackson’s New Year’s Eve Evening Cruise

Now here’s an interesting take on a enjoyable New Year’s Eve celebration!  Why not take a cruise down the Cumberland on the General Jackson and enjoy dinner, the beautiful river scenery and entertainment by the Craig Duncan Orchestra? Tickets include dinner aboard the General Jackson, live entertainment and a cruise downtown to enjoy the fireworks!  Contact the General Jackson online for ticket purchases.


New Year’s Eve Dinner at Sunset Grill

One of Nashville’s most beloved restaurants, Sunset Grill is hosting a dinner for New Year’s Eve, with a three-course, Pre Fix for $40.15.  The chef’s special menu for the night is one to celebrate!  The beef tenderloin tips in red wine cream sauce and caramelized onions are certainly calling my name!  The classics menu is also available, and reservations can be made for tonight’s service from 4pm to 10pm by calling (615) 386-3663.  An invaluable member of Nashville’s Originals, our local independent restaurant association, Sunset Grill has been a staple of Nashville’s fine dining since 1990.

A Nashville Symphony New Year’s Eve

One of our most refined recommendations to spend New Year’s would be to enjoy a concert of Gershwin and Strauss performed by our very own Nashville Symphony.  The beauty and elegance of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center would be a wonderful way to ring in the new year! Contact the Nashville Symphony online for tickets and information.

New Year’s on MStreet

One of Nashville’s trendiest restaurant groups, MStreet is the umbrella to four of Nashville’s most popular restaurants – The Rosewall, Virago, Whiskey Kitchen and Saint Anejo.  They are celebrating New Year’s in style, with one ticket providing guests with access to all four of their restaurants.  Complimentary champagne toasts, balloon drop at midnight and DJs are all provided, and VIP access for an additional fee provides guests with allnight complimentary champagne and access to the VIP lounges and areas.  This should be a tasteful, trendy eventful way to spend New Year’s with friends! Contact MStreet online for ticket purchases.
