21 Best New Year's Eve Parties in Metro Phoenix

All dressed up and nowhere to go on New Year's Eve? Consider any of the following options happening across the Valley on Wednesday, December 31, each of which will allow you to commemorate the final moments of 2014 in grand fashion. And there are plenty of events and affairs to choose from.

If you're into the block party thing, there will be blockbuster bashes happening in both Tempe and Scottsdale. Want to pop some bottles in a posh setting? Many hotels will be holding swank soirees and galas while nightclubs everywhere will be throwing high-energy fiestas filled with drinking and dancing.

If you'd like to have a rockin' New Year's Eve, however, local concert halls and venues are guaranteed will have all manner of live music. But no matter what route you take for your Auld Lang Syne adventures, make sure to get home safely.

See y'all in 2015.

Maya Day & Nightclub

With the end of 2014 only days away, most people are probably doing an instant replay of 12 months' worth of memories and experiences in order to decide if it was a year to remember or something they'd rather forget. So, was it good for you? If you happen to be Adrian Lux, we're reckon it was, considering the progressive house producer had a bang-up year. On Wednesday, December 31, Lux will wrap up 2014 in swanky style at Maya Day and Nightclub, 7333 East Indian Plaza in Scottsdale, during its Escape to the Orient New Year's Eve affair.
