New Year's Eve Parties in Chattanooga

Chattanooga's New Year’s Eve celebrations are in full swing this year. Below lists some of the places where you can combine dinner, dancing and a party for this New Year's Eve.

Hunter Museum - What a place for a NYE Party!

Ring in 2013 at The Chattanoogan. Begin with a full four course dinner at Broad Street Grill from 5 to 10 pm. Then top off the evening in The Foundry listening to the sounds of Priscilla and Lil Ricky. Included in the package is the cover charge for The Foundry, party favors and a champagne toast.

            Ring in the New Year (NYE) at Chattanooga’s most beautiful location, Hunter Museum overlooking the Tennessee River.

Party attire is required and only 21 years and older are allowed to join in the fun. Tickets are $65 for Museum Members, $75 for non-members and $85 at the door.

Gardens Restaurant at Chattanooga Choo Choo will be serving a Prime Rib Dinner Buffet on New Year’s Eve from 5:00 to 10pm. After eating, head over to the Imperial Ballroom to dance 2012 away. The Beaters will be in full swing starting at 8 pm. It is strongly recommended that tickets to the 2012 New Year’s Rockin’ Eve at the Choo Choo be purchased in advance.   

If you want to Funk it up a bit, head to Track 29 on the Choo Choo resort property (for all you old folks (me included) it is the old ice skating rink). The band “Here Come the Mummies” will be ringing in the New Year in funky kind of way. Doors open at 8, band begins playing at 9.

Southern Belle & Pier 2

The Southern Belle will help you rock 2012 away while rolling down the Tennessee River. The evening starts with hor dourves from 7:30 to 8:30 at the 3rd Deck Burger Bar. Then board the riverboat at 8:30 to depart at 9 pm. Dinner, Prime Rib & Chicken Wisconsin, will be served at departure. A DJ will be rocking the boat on both decks and dancing will continue till 1 am. The boat will dock at 11:45 for those who want to catch the ball dropping on the TVs in the 3rd Deck Burger Bar. There will be a champagne toast at Midnight with complimentary souvenir glasses. Pricing is $85.00 per person.
