Ultimate guide to New Year’s Eve 2019 parties in Miami

Partying at the Fontainebleau
Partying at the Fontainebleau

We get it — it’s hard to come up with a game plan for NYE 2019 between shopping for Christmas presents, deciding which holiday parties to attend, and mapping out safe talking points for Noche Buena (whatever you do, don’t ask Abuela for her thoughts on this year’s flan — you did not make it yourself and she knows it). After all, we just got through Basel. If you still haven’t made New Year’s Eve plans by now, don’t panic — we’ve rounded up all kinds of EOY parties for you to consider when you’re coordinating with your squad. You’re welcome.
