If you are still undecided on where to spend your New Years Eve in Kansas City this year, there is still time to get in with the best parties around. In no particular order, here are the Top Five places to ring in 2012 in Kansas City.
Uptown Theater – New Years Eve Extravaganza – all inclusive tickets starting at $40 – This event has built up bigger every year and is the only 18+ full scale NYE party in the city. Although there were complaints of overselling last year (a problem most businesses would love to have), they have promised more room, coat checks, entertainment and amenities this year.
Martini Corner – Countdown at the Corner – all inclusive tickets starting at $75 – If Halloween proved anything this year, it’s that Martini Corner knows how to throw one huge party. With access to five bars and the only full scale party that lasts until 3:00am this, Martini Corner makes this list time and time again.
Mac’s Sports Pub – Black Light Glow Party – $10 cover – Simply because they have the most original idea of everyone and it fits into anyone’s budget, Mac’s has made the list for the first time. With a live bodypainting show including female models, glow sticks, beads, guest body painting, champagne toast and balloon drop at midnight. Wear white and plan to get pychodelic baby.
Californos – Korbel Black Party VIII – all inclusive tickets starting at $80 – With new entertainment and sponsors this year, this is the third consecutive year they have made the list. Being promoted by the wonderful Carlos Lee and EventKC, this party sells out every year, so don’t wait another minute. Beautiful people and great music at one of Kansas City’s iconic restaurants.
Power and Light District – KC Live 2012 – all inclusive tickets starting at $85 – Although they are not doing a cash drop this year, the beautiful weather should be enough to ensure it is still one of the top places to ring in 2012. You can’t really go wrong with DJ’s on the main stage, access to ten different venues, Times Square style ball drop at midnight.
