Not only is it the end of another fabulous year here in Irvine, but it’s also the end of an entire decade! The last ten years brought spandex back into the fashion atmosphere, introduced us to the duck face (and selfies in general), shifted music trends and advanced technology to new heights. And those are just a few things… Given all of the glorious change that has impacted each of us in different ways, it’s only right to celebrate the new year (and new decade!) accordingly. Here are some ideas for how you might want to welcome 2020 this New Years’ Eve.


Celebrate Gatsby Style at Hive & Honey Rooftop Bar

We’d have to agree that a roaring ’20s, Great Gatsby themed NYE soiree is a very fitting way to ring in the new year. Raise a glass of champagne and say cheers as you celebrate the end of the year at the Hive and Honey Rooftop Bar in Irvine. There will be a dinner and champagne pairing to start the evening at Heirloom Farmhouse Kitchen, then an electric New Years Eve bash with a live DJ, entertainment, dance floors, specialty cocktails and unforgettable nighttime city views of Irvine.

Dine at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse in Irvine

Maybe this year you were thinking of celebrating in a way that’s a little more low-key than a ravishing, roaring 20s Gatsby party. If that’s the case, then you might want to make your reservations now for dinner at Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse on New Year’s Eve! There will be a decadent, multi-course meal accompanied by live entertainment, cocktails, and a champagne toast at midnight. I don’t know about you, but welcoming the new year with delicious food and drinks sounds like our kind of New Year’s Eve celebration.

Count Down at Winter Fest Orange County

Fireworks, music, 1,000 balloons and the inaugural Orange Ball drop all happens at Winter Fest Orange County this New Year’s Eve. Winter Fest Orange County is already a holiday favorite, as the Orange County Fairgrounds transforms into a winter wonderland full of lights, snow, ice skating and more. But on December 31st, all of that is brought to the next level to welcome the coming of a new decade.
