Miami New Years Eve 2015

Fireworks, Events, Webcams, Nightclubs, Beach Parties, Hotels

Miami, Florida, USA, 31 December 2014, Midnight

Miami city lights

Miami, the beating heart of Florida's sunshine coast is the state's party capital all the year round, and New Years Eve is no exception with crowds hitting the bars, hotels and restaurants for one huge city-wide party before watching the countdown and midnight fireworks at one of the many private displays of the major pyrotechnic spectacular over the Biscayne Bay.

For me Miami is one of the United States iconic cities - I'm from the generation that grew up with Miami Vice of course - and the white sand beachfront with high rise skyscrapers right along the waterfront create a fantastic scenic backdrop that always reminds me of Surfer's Paradise, one of my favourite places on the planet (I am of course conscious that Miami was doing it first!) and with the buzzing nightlife it would be a fantastic place to see in the new year.

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings

 

The main public event in Miami for new year's eve, and one that has survived the budget cuts that have curtailed similar events in many US cities, is the big midnight fireworks display over Biscayne Bay. They are located in the area on Ocean Drive and 8th Street.

The iconic Big Orange is the focal point of the new year party at Bayfront Park, the dropping of which from the roof of the InterContinental Hotel is the focal point of the evening's events that includes free live music leading to the big countdown and spectacular fireworks at midnight.

The waterfront areas draw huge crowds on NYE and each year there is a massive range of famous beach party events, including the big one at Fontainebleau Miami Beach.

The Fountainbleau has also this year secured some of the biggest names on the current music scene, with superstar Miley Cyrus signed up to host the event (although not currently scheduled to perform) along with her good friend Pharrell Williams. DJ Afrojack will also be there, providing a live set.

Latest: It seems Ryan Seacrest has hijacked Miley Cyrus to play live in Times Square at the New Year Rockin Eve event, so it looks like she won't be in Miami this year after all! Good news is that Pharrell and Afrojack will still be attending.

Away from the beach and into the city as well the Miami nightlife comes into it's own on New Years Eve like no other time as the city strives to cement it's reputation as the nation's party central. Top venues include Mansion, Cameo Nightclub, Mokai, Opium Nightclub, Kaffe Krystal, Wonderland, Tabu, Bongos Cuban Cafe, La Covacha and Club 50, and all of the big bars and clubs compete to hold the biggest and brightest new year party. There's extensive listings of the best club nights for NYE 2015 here.

Rusty Pelican's New Year's Eve Masquerade Ball offers an Ultra Premium evening with dinner at 9:00pm, where the chef has prepared an incredible spread that is nothing short of 5 star. An array of super premium spirits are included on this night, featuring Perrier Jouet Champagne. If that isn't reason enough they also have live music, dancing, cigars, and the best view in the city! Fire works at midnight and Masquerade costumes are highly encouraged - tickets available here.

For families with kids then Serendipity 3 is hosting a family new year's experience with mocktails, finger foods and a new year countdown at 6.69pm which means you can still be home for bedtime! More details here.

One of the most enduringly popular Miami nights out is the NYE Crawl 'Til The Ball Falls Bar Crawl, where people get dressed up celebrity style and take on as many of the city's hot nightspots as they can manage. It isn't a night for the faint hearted but if it sounds like your kind of thing you can book your tickets here.

For live music Miami is home to many popular venues, and for stadium size shows new year 2015 features Armando Christian Pérez, or Pitbull to his friends, playing live at the American Airline Arena. Tickets are available here. Also in town on NYE is Macy Gray, live at the Casino Miami Jai Alai, and superstar DJ Deadmau5 will be live at Mansion Miami in Miami Beach, a 21+ event. DJ Tiësto is also in town, playing a DJ set at LIV on South Beach.

Another option many people opt for is to take to the water and join one of the new year cruises on Biscayne Bay, a great way to do something a little different as well as securing yourself one of the best possible vantage points to watch the fireworks.

I really like the look of the gala events offered by Island Queen Cruises where you can spend the evening on an all-inclusive basis with premium bar and fabulous fine dining menu on one of their 3 luxury yacht, the Biscayne Lady, the Venetian Lady and the Floridian Princess. Another good option is the New Year's Eve Fireworks Gala cruise on The Musette Yacht, with live music and full buffet on climate-controlled decks - get more details here.

For eating options, many diners will head to one of the many beach-side restaurants, such as Los Parrilleros, Te con Te, Layali Miami Mediterranean Restaurant and Hookah Lounge, Positano Ristorante Italiano or the Ajiacos Grill Colombian Restaurant. Miami has a huge range of restaurants, with seafood an obvious speciality, but most cuisines are amply catered for - check out local restaurant listings and reviews here.
