Ring in New Year’s 2018 with your toes in the sand at the New Years Bash @ The Beach- Rowe Bar at the Don CeSar Hotel located on St. Pete Beach. The party kicks off at 9:00 p.m. and runs until 1:00 a.m.

There's no better backdrop for a New Year's Eve party than the historic Don CeSar Hotel. This magnificent resort was a hotbed of celebrity guests in the 1920s and 1930s, including mobster Al Capone, New York Yankees great Lou Gehrig, and former president Franklin D. Roosevelt, before it turned into a military hospital during World War II. On New Year’s Eve, "The Don" will again be one of the most glamorous spots in the St. Pete Beach area. Maybe you'll even see a ghost celebrating alongside you.

New Year’s Bash at The Beach will have one of the Bay Area's best live DJ's to get you up and dancing all the way into 2018. You can relax by their oceanfront fire tables, or dance the night away on the fireplace patio. 

Tickets are required to enjoy the New Years Bash @ The Beach. If you buy early the price is $116.82, but you can also buy tickets at the door for $125. The ticket includes mouth-watering gourmet hors d’oeuvres, like vegan tuna made of compressed watermelon, rolled in a sesame seed mix with a sweet soy reduction and seaweed salad. You won't believe it's not tuna! If you want a little more heft in your appetizers, the Don CeSar will have the chef’s house-blended patty beef sliders, both BBQ style and truffled, at chef-inspired buffet action tables. And those are just a couple of samples of what to expect at the party.

Not only does your ticket include great food, it also includes your drinks! You'll have access to The Rowe Bar's fantastic selection of cocktails, beers, and wine. Before the ball drops, you'll receive some champagne and witness a balloon drop in person. 

Cocktail attire is recommended, so get out your suits and little black dresses. Dress to impress and help the Don CeSar celebrate its upcoming 90th birthday early at New Year’s Bash at the Beach.
