Like the rest of the holiday season, New Year’s Eve (NYE) is a welcome illumination in the dark winters up north. Though it can be a great opportunity to watch the pretty fireworks all cuddled up at Gas Works Park or on TV from the comfort of your fireplace-adjacent couch, NYE can also be infamous as the last night of debauchery before the start of next year’s resolutions. For those looking to end 2017 with a bang in Seattle, here are 10 ideas to get you started.

NYE at Sky View Observatory

Want to feel like you’re on top of the world? Consider Seattle’s tallest building for your New Year’s Eve celebration. With 360-degree views, including the fireworks show at the Space Needle, purchase drinks and appetizers as you ring in the New Year in style. Admittance is first come, first served, so arrive early before the observatory reaches full capacity.

Columbia Center, 701 5th Ave, Seattle, WA, USA, +1 206 386 5151

Seattle Center

The Space Needle is the tallest building on Earth to launch fireworks. Experience NYE from inside the iconic structure or from the ground below. Alternatively, make your NYE a glass experience at the Chihuly Garden and Glass New Year’s Eve pARTy. For a scientific twist, head next door to SPECTRA 2018: New Year’s Eve Under the Arches with laser shows at the Pacific Science Center. Finally, you can join over 2,000 guests at the Museum of Pop Culture’s Indulgence, one of Seattle’s largest NYE parties.
