Bistro Niko

In the beating heart of Buckhead is a French restaurant like no other in the city that’s perfect for a New Year’s Eve celebrations. With decor that’s reminiscent of the classic dining rooms of the 1920s, all that’s missing to make the place feel like burlesque Paris is a stage and Josephine Baker. Along with an extensive wine list with a giant range of French reds, whites, and champagne, Bistro Niko stocks beers from France, Germany, Italy, England, and right here in Georgia. And how about the food? Whether the charcuterie Grand Platter is your thing, or Herb Goat Cheese Ravioli, Shrimp En Brique or Steak Au Poivre, there is a classic French dish to match your palate, and the best thing is this: it’s all really good.

The only thing better than one New Year’s Eve celebration is two of them, which is exactly what you can get at Fado Irish Pub. At both the Buckhead and Midtown locations, you can ring in the New Year with the Peach Bowl at 8:00 PM and a DJ from 11:00 PM – 1:00 AM, but there’s an added twist. You can also toast to the Irish New Year at 7:00 PM (when the clock turns across the Atlantic). Where else can you get double the 2023 festivities?

You have so many activities to choose between for New Year’s Eve: watching the Peach Bowl, watching the Peach Drop, drinking champagne, dancing the night away…luckily, at the Illuminarium you don’t have to choose! This immersive experience utilizes projectors, screens, speakers, and more to transport you to anywhere in the world. On top of that, you can purchase a ticket that gets you: two free drinks, an all-night buffet, a midnight champagne toast, a DJ, a 360-degree photo booth experience, and more.

Nina & Rafi is the Beltline at its best. And having fantastic pizza–REALLY fantastic pizza–for your last meal of 2020 is a great way to go out. Enjoy a slice for dine-in or patio dining with their heated patios. We love their arancini, a deep fried rice ball, and their spicy Tony Pepperoni pizza.
