Sassafras’s “Black & White Party”– 8pm-2am
Enjoy a taste of New Orleans in your best black & white attire at Sassafras. Live music provided by The Dixie Giants. Tickets can be purchased here and for $85 you can sizzle with an open bar with specialty cocktails featuring Grey Goose and St. Germain and New Orleans-inspired hors d’oeuvres.
Now for the steals! Some no cover options to help ring the New Year.
Bigfoot West– 5pm-2am
If you’d rather spend your money on drinks then skip the cover and invest in a few rounds of the $10 champagne cocktail of the night
The Thirsty Crow– 8pm-2am
Wine for $5 or Champagne bottles for $50 should be enough to get you to midnight.
Tiki No– 5pm-2am
Enjoy a champagne toast out of a tiki glass instead at this North Hollywood kitchy favorite.
Hope everyone has a happy and delicious new year!!!
