New Years Eve is a unique time of year to visit a new place, and we aim to travel to as many as we can.

We've already visited some of the main ones: Paris, Sydney, London and Edinburgh but have the ambition to get to as many of the others listed on this site as we can.

We hope you find our listings useful in finding the best NYE fireworks, parties, hotels, concerts, restaurants, cruises and events wherever you are!



San Francisco New Years Eve 2015

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

SF Bay, San Francisco, California, 31 December 2014, Midnight

SF Bay Golden Gate Bridge

Residents of San Francisco and visitors alike tend to throw themselves into the New Years Eve party with typical gusto. There are events and parties across the city with all the restaurants fully booked and bars packed. As midnight approaches the crowds start to hit the streets for the firework displays, with the Golden Gate Bridge lighting up San Francisco Bay with a selection of fireworks that can be seen for miles around.

San Francisco is renowned as a pretty chilled out city and is also one of the safer US venues so you shouldn't have too many problems getting out and about over new year's eve - the locals are known for their welcoming nature and friendliness too so you'll be making new friends in no time. We have visited SF in the past, but not on new year's eve, so it is a place we'll definitely have to check out one year!

Fireworks, Events & Party Listings


San Francisco is another big city that holds big free public fireworks, making use of it's excellent setting on SF Bay and the impressive backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge. The main show is best viewed from the Embarcadero, between Mission and Folsom, where you'll have a great view of the pyrotechnics as they are launched from barges moored out in the bay, and set to background music for the additional dramatic effect! Crowds also gather for soem of the best views around the Ferry Building and Justin Herman Plaza. 

Many people choose to actually take to the water to secure themselves the best possible vantage point for viewing the fireworks, and one event that has become very popular is the Speakeasy NYE Cruise, which takes you out on the bay on board the Fume Blanc Commodore for a 4 hour cruise along with food, drinks, card tables and live DJs.

Another cruise option worth looking out for is the very special Moonlight NYE Fireworks Cruise 2015 on the luxurious San Francisco Spirit yacht - this party combines top DJ entertainment with an open bar, multiple decks, top notch food plus of course the front row fireworks seats - there is a discount for early booking, so get your tickets quickly here.

One of the biggest parties in SF for NYE 2015 is the New Years Eve Party at the Pavilion By the Bay, where you get a 7 hour extravaganza of food, and 5 star entertainment, with music provided by top DJs, along with one of the best views of the fireworks over the Bay.

For those who like to dress up and get involved in the glamorous cultural scene, there will be a Masquerade Ball at the Davies Symphony Hall, with a dramatic live music concert provided by the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Masks are provided, as is delicious food and complimentary Prosecco.

The city's many bars and nightclubs all compete to hold the best new year party too, and there's a vast range to choose from. Top events include the New Years Eve Extravaganza at the Fairmont Hotel, NYE International Ball at the Palace Hotel, NYE Massive 2015 at Parc 55 Hotel in Union Square, Epic NYE at The Westin and NYE 2015 at the W Hotel. You can buy your tickets for all these events, plus many more, online here.

If it's live music you're looking for, then there's a huge concert at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, where the Sea of Dreams NYE 2015 party feature live sets by top acts Thievery Corporation, A-Trak, Dillon Francis, Rob Garza, Empancipator, Worthy and more. Not surprisingly it's an 18+ event, get tickets asap here.

Superstar Moby will also be in San Francisco this year, playing a live DJ set at the Streets of San Francisco NYE festival, a huge warehouse party that alos offers an open bar and great views of the bay and Golden Gate Bridge. This sounds like a fantastic event, and is probably where I would be if I was in SF this year! Tickets online here.

There are special NYE menus available at most venues, including Ajanta Indian, Atelier Crenn,  Garibaldi's on Presidio, Skool and Piazza D'Angelo - check out all the best offers here.
