Tips for Surviving a Downtown Vegas New Year’s Eve

Eat Before You Drink

New Year’s Eve is a night full of heavy drinking for all. Do yourself a favor before starting the party, and eat a good meal. Triple George Grill is offering a specialty New Year’s Eve menu that includes 4 courses for just $70. Some of the menu items include Oysters Rockefeller, Steak and Lobster, and a Chocolate Cake dessert topped with a 24K gold leaf.

Don’t Break the Bank

It’s true, most bars and clubs have an entry fee with exorbitant drink prices on New Year’s Eve. Fortunately, at Downtown Grand, you can have the time of your life without spending a fortune or having to make an unexpected withdrawal from your child’s college savings fund. First, our New Year’s Eve celebration is FREE. You heard us right; our party is free entry for everyone.

Next, as we mentioned previously, you can take advantage of our Bar Crawl and get 4 cocktails (as well as appetizers) for only $40. Finally, unlike most places that simply offer a free champagne toast at midnight, we’re offering complimentary unlimited champagne for 30 minutes. Have one glass of champagne or 10 glasses – we won’t judge!

Book a Room

For tourists coming to ring in the New Year in style, book a room and don’t wait to do it. Everywhere in the city books up fast! Even locals who plan on having a fun night on the town, book a room! The traffic is horrible, Ubers will be hard to catch with all the street closures, and there will be surcharges the entire night.

Get yourself a room so you can party as hard as you want and just head upstairs to sleep it off. No mess, no fuss. At Downtown Grand, you have the option to book our New Year’s Eve Weekend Package. This includes 2 tickets per night you book to our Bar Crawl – making your weekend that much more affordable and convenient!

Enjoy the best hangover foods and as much as you want for only $20.

Roarin’ Twenties Fashion

Picture this: the year is 1928, you pull up to the party in your new Model T Ford and get out of the car. What are you wearing?

The 1920s is the decade in which fashion entered the modern era. Women broke out of what was accepted in society and started wearing what they wanted to wear (short skirts and pants). While most men wore the highly formal attire daily, some began wearing athletic clothing for the first time.

In honor of The Grand Gatsby New Year’s Eve Weekend Celebration, we’re encouraging guests to come dressed in their 1920s best. But don’t worry, we’ll give you some pointers first.


Perhaps the easiest look is the “working class” style. Men of the working class couldn’t afford three-piece suits, so their style was a bit more casual. This style is made up of:

  • Dress Pants
  • Vest or Suspenders
  • Button Down Shirt
  • Oxford Shoes
  • Newsboy Cap

Get inspiration from “Peaky Blinders”

Because New Year’s tends to be a classy event, you may want to up the ante and rock something more “Jay Gatsby” like. This attire includes:

  • 3-piece Tuxedo with Peak Lapel
  • White Pleated Tuxedo Shirt
  • White Pocket Square
  • Cufflinks
  • Bow Tie
  • Black Patent Leather Dress Shoes

Top hat optional

Or fellas can have a little fun and dress in a mobster costume:

  • Pin Striped Suit
  • Overcoat
  • Fedora
  • Saddle Shoes
  • Cane
  • Cigar



The most common look for ladies is the flapper. These were the ladies who got all gussied up to drink and dance to jazz music. This style includes:

  • Beaded or Fringe Dress
  • Long Pearls
  • Feather Boas
  • Feather or Beaded Headband
  • Long Satin Gloves
  • High Heels
  • Long Cigarette Holder

If you don’t want to get too dressed up, instead of Gatsby, ladies can dress more like Downton Abbey.

  • Loose Blouse
  • Pleated Linen Skirt
  • Pearl Necklace
  • Cloche Hat

“Come as a flapper, come as you are, come as a mobster or a silent screen star.”

4 Reasons You Belong in the Roarin’ Twenties

1. You Love Dancing

The 1920s were all about jazz and swing music. It was the era of fun fads like the Charleston and marathon dancing. Relive all the jazzy fun at the Grand Gatsby New Year’s Eve Weekend Celebration with two throwback bands:

  • Saturday, Dec. 30: Shaun DeGraff Band 8 p.m. – 12 a.m.
  • Sunday, Dec. 31: Retro Jukebox 11 p.m. – 1 a.m.

Both bands combine the ultimate playlist of today with a reimagined vintage pop/jazz sound.

“Everything old just got new again!”

2. You Love Hats

In the 1920s, men and women alike wore hats. The casual style for men included newsboy, golf, or cab driver caps. For more formal events, top hats or bowler hats were common. Then, of course, you have the typical 1920s gangsters who rocked fedoras. Women wore hats with a lot of embellishments like flowers or bows. But it’s not just about a great hat. You need the complete 1920s look!

3. You Love Booze

Alcohol may have been illegal throughout the 1920s, but that certainly didn’t stop people from enjoying a nice glass of gin. To celebrate the roarin’ ’20s, we’ve put together a 3-day prohibition style bar crawl where you can try tasty drinks and appetizers from the glamorous decade.

And if a $40 bar crawl isn’t enough for you, there will also be free-flowing champagne on the casino floor from 11:30 p.m. – midnight.

4. You Love Glamour

When you watched the remake of “The Great Gatsby,” you wanted nothing more than to live a lavish life like Jay Gatsby. We’re turning up the glamour this New Year’s Eve with 9-foot tall “Glamazons,” flappers, and a walking champagne dress. This is going to be the most “instagrammable” party in Las Vegas.
