Guys, now that Hanukkah and Xmas are behind us (joyous ongoing Kwanza!), it’s time to get out of the food coma and get serious. New Year’s Eve is upon us, and I think we all agree that we need a large dose of joy to wash down 2017. 

Luckily there’s so much to do in and around Bushwick! From giant heavily produced all-immersive parties to good ol’ Bushwick bar merriment. Scroll below, take it all in, and choose what fits your mood the best! 

Note that this is a curated and a sponsored guide. We have reached out to our fave local businesses with an offer to be listed here for a small fee. We listed the events in the order we received them.

Emoji legend:

? Centers around delish food

? Straight up giant, highly produced party

? NYE merriment at local bars

? Get some wine & liquor bottles before you head out

? In case you party a lil too hard

Happy 2018, Bushwick!!!
