best new year's activities in OgunquitIt’s a holiday and time to kick off the New Year right. So after the Christmas cheer comes one of the best parts of the holiday season: the New Year’s Party. Whether the night falls on a weekend or midweek –you can think of it as a fresh start – the holiday is highlighted by friends and family sharing a celebration together.

Here are our top five ways New Year’s Eve parties in Southern Maine

Maine Street Ball Drop
Yes, the dance floor will be crowded and the music will be thumpin’ – but if you want a high energy start to your New Year, Maine Street is the place to be. Advance tickets are a must – this is a sellout dance party. No wallflowers – with multiple rooms and dance floors, there’s a party over here and a party over there.

Jonathan’s Upstairs/ Downstairs Party
Speaking of dance floors, the celebration right next door at Jonathan’s is both easy to get to and yummy. With pre-fix New Year’s dinner seating, Jazz downstairs and DJ upstairs, you can relax bar side or head out on the dance floor. While we do encourage advance reservations, occasionally, a last minute space is available.

Northern Union
Wine and dine at this little Maine wine bar spot. Which means reservations are a must to grab your spot in this cozy Shore Road restaurant. Enjoy small plates with delicious food and unique adventurous wine pairings. Hey, it’s all about trying something new right?

Cozy In Room Celebration
Well, okay – so maybe not exactly a party. But sign up for one of our suites and add a champagne basket to toast to the ball drop in cozy comfort. With fireplace and Jacuzzi options, you’ll be kicking off the New Year with relaxation. Coupled with a trip to the Roman Spa and you’ll fill your celebration with all sorts of refreshment.

MC Perkins Cove
Oyster bar. Ocean views. Take New Year’s up a notch (and don’t forget to make reservations) with ocean side dining for Maine smoked trout, pan seared scallops and Grand Marnier mousse. Hmmm . . . we’re feeling a little hungry.

Still not sure about New Year’s Eve in Maine?
Add a little extra fun with a walk along Marginal Way to work up – or off – your holiday celebration. Or take a drive to the top of Mt. A to see the stunning winter view. Be sure to bring your camera. There really is nothing as wonderful as spending quality time together in Maine for the holiday.
