Planet Hollywood Times Square New Years Eve Event Description

Celebrate this New Year’s Eve with a party that caters to the whole family at two of Times Square’s most exciting venues, Planet Hollywood and Buca di Beppo.  A live DJ will spin beats all night long that will keep the whole family revved and dancing.  There are two great locations and plenty of packages to choose from this New Year’s Eve so feel free to indulge and start the year off right.

If you’re looking for a warm family experience, but still want to watch the ball drop and be at the center of it all this year, dinner at Buca di Beppo is your ticket.  With an iconic red-checkered table for the family and a hearty Italian-style meal combined with the excitement of a party and the countdown of a DJ, you can’t go wrong this NYE.

Looking to be a little more in the thick of it all?  Planet Hollywood is your key with bumping beats and multiple flatscreens broadcasting the Times Square Ball drop.  Those 21 and up will have access to a five hour premium open bar with appetizers from spring rolls to hamburger sliders and loads of NYE party favors to keep everyone in spirit. 

No matter what you choose, there will be a champagne toast at midnight and plenty of good food for the whole gang.  Take the guesswork out of this holiday and bring the whole family for an affair where the entertainment is taken care of for you.  Can’t decide?  Pick up a VIP ticket that gives you access to both and experience both flavors of New Year’s Eve in the legendary Times Square.

ENTRY POINTS: 45th Street & 6th Ave

BARRICADES:  The NYPD set up security checkpoints, called Barricades, throughout Times Square.  The NYPD will ask you to present your physical ticket, which are also your entry tickets to the event.  Locate your entry point based on the event you are attending below.  Your entry into Times Square cannot be guaranteed if you do not follow these designated ENTRY POINT instructions.  Your physical tickets must be on you at all times in order to gain entry into Times Square and your event.

TIME:  Moving through Times Square on New Year’s Eve can be a slow process.  Make sure to give yourself plenty of time to travel from your hotel or starting point to your party destination.  There are police checkpoints throughout Times Square and the wait times may vary.  The “doors open” time is located on your actual ticket.  We strongly recommend arriving at least 1-hour before the scheduled opening time.  NOTE:  Trying to enter Times Square after 9:00 PM is difficult and strongly discouraged.
