There is no shortage of great things to do, parties to go to, entertainment to see, while you are welcoming 2012 in the East Village this year.
• The Central Bar at 109 East 9th Street will be serving drinks for five hours at their open bar on two floors to celebrate the arrival of the New Year. Appetizers will be served, party favors distributed, and a live DJ will help you ease into 2012. Eight big screens and a champagne toast will add an exciting touch to the celebration. 212-525-5333.
• The Forum is at 127 4th Avenue and is planning an unforgettable party for the hippest New Yorkers, including models, financiers and many of New York’s upper crust residents. The Forum is designed as a nod to the great Roman Forum of Julius Ceaser, including Corinthian columns and other classic details. The premium bar will be open for five hours from 9pm until 2am and a performance by one of the world’s premier DJs will make this a New Year’s you won’t forget.
• Percy’s Tavern at 210 Avenue A is offering three options to celebrate the New Year. General admission is $10 which gives you an entrance to the bar where you can hear the Itinerants play, live. For $40 guests have access to a four hour open bar, and for $65 revelers can have the open bar and also a delicious dinner. (212) 228-4885
