This highly anticipated event is perfect for those seeking an intimate and sophisticated way to usher in the New Year by attending a luxurious private affair in a climate-controlled environment, done only the way New York City can – and ultimately avoiding both the city’s crowds and its unpredictable December weather. This exclusive party is capped at just 150 guests making it one of the most intimate affairs being offered this year.


The venue for this upscale gala is the chic R Lounge and Living Room at the Renaissance New York Times Square. Located in the center of Times Square, and thus in the center of the festivities, this location is a prime spot to take it all in. Here, guests will enjoy stunning panoramic views of Times Square plus an unobstructed, straight-on view of the iconic ball, all from three stories above the crowds. The 2023 VIP New Year’s Eve Gala starts at 8:00 PM and continues until 1:00 AM. During this time, not only will guests be treated to unparalleled views of the celebration taking place three stories below, but they will also enjoy lavish passed hors d’oeuvres, hot and cold food stations, sumptuous desserts, premium open bar and specialty cocktails, a champagne toast, live entertainment and dancing.
