Houston New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Webcams, Parties, Concerts, Hotels, Bars, Restaurants

Houston, Texas, USA, 31 December 2014, Midnight

A lot of people when asked about the top New Years Eve event in Texas state will plump for the Big D NYE event in Dallas (the state capital of course being Austin...), especially now that Houston's Discovery Green event has become less of a fixture after being cancelled late doors in 2014.

One thing I've also learned is there's a pretty fierce rivalry between the big cities in Texas, with residents of the cities of Austin, Dallas and indeed Houston itself very much bristling with civic pride for their own home town, so if you're going to talk about them you better make sure you do your research properly first (see the comments at the bottom of this page for more details!)

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

The big event in Houston for new year is traditionally held on Discovery Green where a large scale public event used to take place each year. Promising a family-friendly atmosphere, the Discovery Green New Years Eve party would start at 7pm and run all the way through to 12.15am, greeting the new year with a spectacular fireworks display fired from the top of the George R. Brown Convention Center.

Please note: the Discovery Green event was cancelled for NYE 2014 due to a lack of corporate sponsorship. No news yet as to whether it will be back this year, we'll bring any updates as and when we have them.

There is an annual New Year’s Eve bash in the city's Sam Houston Park.

For basketball fans, local favourites the Houston Rockets will be playing at their home court on new years eve this year, hosting the Charlotte Hornets.

Away from the main public events, the city's bars, clubs and hotels will be greeting the occasion with their usual committed gusto. Top nights to make room for include 5 Minutes to Midnight NYE at the JW Marriott hotel on Westheimer and the NYE Supreme Ball at the Westin Hotel Grand Ballroom.

Houston is often associated with live music, and a number of big name acts have come from this part of Texas over the years.

For your new year dining options then Houston has plenty on offer too, with something to cater for most palates. Top joints include Americas River Oaks, Sambuca, Baba Yega and Fogo de Chão, while vegans can dine happily at Hobbit Cafe and Green Seed Vegan. See the full range of Houston restaurants, with reviews, here.
