When the phrase “New Year’s Eve party” comes to mind, if fantasies of unbridled opulence and premier party-rocking dance through your head, Philadelphia’s NYE celebration at the exquisite Crystal Tea Room is your undisputed front-running holiday affair. Boasting multiple rooms & DJs, live performance from Philly favorite 39 Mariner, body painters, hoop dancers, silent charity auction, plenty of easy-access bars, savory food & carving stations (for VIP ticket holders) and the city’s chicest crowd, the amenities and good times are boundless at Crystal Tea Room’s 12Midnight New Year’s Eve soiree.
Perched atop the late Wannamaker Building, Crystal Tea Room is a Philly crown jewel and architectural gem. Historic yet ultra-refined, this venue space’s three dazzling areas are truly a sight to behold. The focal point, the Crystal Ball Room, features specialty bars, swanky lounge seating, gorgeous lighting and an elevated performance stage complete with a top-notch sound system. In addition to the Crystal Ball Room, this venue includes two VIP spaces such as the atrium, a soaring space with 50 foot glass ceilings featuring a fountain and greenery providing an “outdoor” atmosphere all year long, and a secondary exclusive lounge. A structural phenomenon highlighted by impressive design, richly embellished in intricately-carved columns and strikingly colossal crystal chandeliers, the Crystal Tea Room is home to some of the city’s most notoriously breathtaking blowouts.
Premium open bars, live entertainment and upscale indulgence all come together beneath one confounding sprawling glass and crystal embossed roof under the guise of Philadelphia’s favorite New Year’s Eve tradition, Crystal Tea Room’s 12Midnight New Year’s Eve gala. Kick off the no-holds-barred evening with a 5 hour premium open bar featuring specialty libations including classic cocktails, craft beers and a highly anticipated martini bar in addition to free-flowing champagne all night long. Along with complimentary NYE party favors and many surprises, there is sure to be plenty of holiday spirit on display to compliment the high-octane revelry. Satisfy your appetite with complimentary buffet-style dining, complete with dessert. Once fueled on high-end wining and dining, head to The Crystal Tea Room’s sprawling dance floor and dance to the megawatt beats of Top 40, Hip Hop, House and Mash Ups performed by a live DJ and legendary party band 39 Marnier, requested specially for Crystal Tea Room’s 12Midnight NYE celebration. These amenities are sure to keep you more than occupied until the final moments of the year when all in attendance gather on the dancefloor to ring in the New Year with a live DJ countdown, topped off by Philly’s biggest balloon drop and a complimentary champagne toast. Just the because one year ends, that doesn’t mean the party does because those in attendance are also invited to make their way to an after-party at LIT UltraBar at 2AM free of charge. However, those looking to make the most of their time at Crystal Tea Room should do so with a luxurious VIP ticket package, featuring amenities such as upgraded cocktails and bottle/table service in VIP exclusivity.
