In with the Inn Crowd

Choosing a New Year’s Eve party is not unlike purchasing a prime piece of real estate. Location, location, location. And you won’t find a more desirable destination than the W Scottsdale, the angular, glass-and-steel boutique hotel located a precious-stone’s-throw away from the Scottsdale Waterfront and nightclub districts. Let’s compare those NYE options, shall we? Neighborhood pub for that end-of-the-year darts tourney or the inaugural New Year’s Eve Masquerade Ball at the Valley’s reigning home of the jet set? Our thoughts exactly.

Admission ($50 for women, $100 for dudes) gets you gratis cocktails from 8:30 to 10:30 p.m., a mask and entry to the Ball, a champagne toast, and live entertainment on the ab-fab WET Deck. Another thing the W’s got that your local juke joint ain’t: private cabanas, available on a limited basis by calling 602-405-0099.

Wed., Dec. 31, 8:30 p.m., 2008
