Party in the USA
The Hollywood celebrity haunt, Beverly Hills, with its tropical gardens, poolside cafes, block parties and theme parks is the picture-perfect place to spend the New Year holidays.

Although the availability of myriad choices may make it hard to decide from an overwhelming amount of parties, parades and public gatherings, it is never too late to find the right event for a perfect year-ending.
Party like a pro
A haven for celebrities from around the world, Beverly Hills is brimming with parties that host some of the world’s greatest DJs. While for some entrance fees are applicable, there are several parties that are on round-the-clock for which entry is free. There are also photo-booths with fun props for the selfie-lovers.
Lights will guide you home
