NEW YEARS EVE 2016 | The Ultimate Beachside Party

The Party of all Parties!

What a way to bring in 2017! – Our Watsons Bay New Years Eve Party was one for the books!


People from all over Sydney showed up in their best outfits and with their glamourous smiles to bring in the New Year with their friends and family by the bay. Sydney put on its best weather for the evening, allowing for a spectacular background sunset over Sydney harbour before the fireworks hit at midnight!


The crowds came ready for a fun night and excited to bring in the New Year at Sydneys best venue. With the flowing drinks, live DJs and amazing vibes it was the ultimate beachside party! Guests danced away while the sun set, and took in the incredible sights of the midnight fireworks lighting up the city skyline! There were 3 ticket types available, from our GA, VIP and VIP dinner.nye-blog-banner

Our VIP dinner guests were treated to a delicious 3 course Grand Feast with fresh chilled seafood to start, an array of mains including suckling pig, ocean trout and slow cooked lamb with couscous to share and our classic smashed pavlova to finish. This was all enjoyed with Piper Heidseick Champagne and Heineken.


With 8 bars available, Heineken, Ciroc cocktails, PIMMS and Aperol Spritz were the drinks of the evening.  Our cocktail bar was also pumping out some of Watsons Bay’s favourite cocktails throughout the night, including our signature Itsy Bitsy cocktail and gin inspired mix, Boaty McBoatface. Our VIP guests were treated to complimentary drinks & nibbles from 6pm, ready to get the party started.


Our DJ decks were overlooking the Watsons Bay Beach promenade and with our amazing DJ lineup, the Beachclub was rocking til the AM with tunes from Jonny Powell, The Artful Force, DJ Cloud Rider and Tina Turntables.  POOLCLVB was the headliner and bought in the New Year in style. With drinks flowing, sparklers sparkling and music pumping, the vibes throughout the hotel would be hard to beat! Our Top Deck balcony was the perfect place to catch the afternoon sunset and the views of the midnight fireworks, while our lower Beachclub was where the ultimate party was, with the tunes creating the perfect vibes. No matter where you were in the venue, the event was enjoyed by all!


As midnight approached, guests flowed onto our Top Deck balconies and down to the beach front to join in the countdown until midnight and catch the best views of the amazing fireworks. POOLCLVB was on the decks, playing George Michael as the fireworks went off. It was a perfect way to bring in 2017!
