First off, I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful New Year! New Year’s was especially exciting for me because it was my first year in California.
Days before the holiday I decided to research NYE events in Los Angeles. I quickly decided on going to DTLA for drinks and visiting the block party at Grand Park with some friends.
Sadly, the block party was alcohol free even though it looked like a miniature festival. To say the least, we left quickly for the nearest bar. I mean, c’mon who doesn’t want a glass of champagne for the impending New Year?
Down the street, we found a vintage hotel bar with overpriced drinks. I wish I could remember the name. Anyway, they made me a delicious and strong Hibiscus gin drink.
My favorite part of the night was at midnight, of course. We rang in the New Year on top of my friend’s apartment building. The view was amazing, and we could see Grand Park’s countdown from the roof. We spilt a bottle of Champagne and rang in the New Year right.
In addition, shout out to LA Metro, thanks for the free metro rides after 9pm.
Happy New Year!
