New Year's Eve: Dance

What the hell happened last night?

Beauty Bar
Forget to get your nails did up ’cause you were in a rush to get out the door and meet your girlfriends for a drink? It happens to the best of us, so don’t worry—this spot has you covered. Renowned the world over for combining the manicurial arts with alcoholism, Beauty Bar is serving both this New Year’s Eve. They’re staying true to form with their weekly Soul Shaker Dancestravaganza, spinning a little something for anyone with any sense of rhythm. Unlike most of the parties in town, they’re one of the few joints offering a decent cover charge: It’s $40 for the open bar from 9 p.m. through 12 a.m., and then they knock off 10 bucks an hour as the party keeps poppin’. Bring your friends. 231 East 14th Street, 212-539-1389,, call for more information

It's never too late to look good.

If I had a dollar for every time I’ve been yelled at by the person at the front door, I’d be retired and living it up in Puerto Vallarta. That aside, if you want to get sweaty and dance all night to great rock-and-roll, you’d be hard-pressed to find a more intimate venue in the East Village. Their New Year’s Eve black-and-white party will be hosted by DJ Gina Bon Jersey, and there’s an open bar from 10 p.m. through 1 a.m. 327 Bowery, 212-228-0228,, $100
