It’s honestly my favorite time of year. It’s a new year, folks! That means out with the old and in with the new. It’s a season of reinvigoration, reinvention, renewal and reveling. And while we can’t help you with your New Years’ resolutions, we can definitely help you with the reveling part.

Here are DC Fab!’s top party picks to ring in 2014 in no particular order:

  • 8 p.m. – 4 a.m.: Join EZ Street and Armageddon at the Beacon Hotel (1615 Rhode Island Avenue NW) for a new years celebration that features four ball rooms and even a live pianist. DJ Alizay, Spinser Tracy along with DJ Ablaze and DJ Teffler will be on hand to deliver the best in hip hop, R&B, Top 40, Soca and Afro. Enjoy New Years Eve party favors — hats and noisemakers — along with complimentary food stations from 9-10 p.m. and half-priced cocktails from 8-10 p.m. More info!
