waterfront vancouver1. NYE 2014 WATERFRONT GALA BALL

Where: Fairmont Waterfront, Vancouver

When: 9pm – 2am

Who: 25+ Upscale Socialites

Why: This is one of the country’s most sought after parties for 19 years (our stats say so!). Sometimes the ideal NYE is a little less rowdy and a lot more ritzy. The largest hotel party in Vancouver succeeds in avoiding the college-kid vibe (oh the wonders of a minimum age!) and instead offers a night of luxury and class that few events achieve. The service will have you wanting nothing and, between tasty bites, the cocktails will have you getting the customary new years eve buzz with your fellow hot young-professionals. Welcome 2014 with a glass of champagne in your hand and balloons swirling above your head (and hopefully that midnight smooch!). Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
