Times Square isn’t for everybody. In fact, the desire to get away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square on New Year’s Eve (aka tourist central) is one that many a New Yorker shares. Some of the best New Year's Eve parties aren’t happening in Times Square, they’re happening in your favorite neighborhood hangouts. Take The Village Pourhouse, for example. Already touted as one of the East Village’s best bars for beer, the comfy (but certainly not small) tavern is stepping it up on New Year’s Eve to throw what they’re confident is the “#1 Party in the East Village.”
The hot spot for partiers who are a little more casual than dressy boasts a selection of 100 beers. On top of that, The Village Pourhouse will pull out all the stops and offer patrons a five hour open bar. And never fear, just because you’re not in Times Square doesn’t mean you won’t see the ball drop. Watch the classic event from one of the bar’s 19 big screen HD televisions and complimentary party favors. Want all of this fun but want to celebrate in private? Reserve one of their private rooms, which can be equipped for RockBand, Wii and music! Get in on the party and reserve your tickets while they last.
