Ballrooms, DJ Club Room and Comedy Theatre
This special, not to be missed New Year event takes over three event spaces in the Washington DC Hilton, the upscale hospitality host and favorite place of high-profile media affairs in DC. Drink, dance, dine and circulate from the Live Music Hall to the DJ Club Room, or take in some comedy at the Comedy Theatre. No matter what your particular party scene is in the moment, you can pick your NYE adventure throughout the night at this premier event. You’ll be partying in these same halls where just months ago A-listers like Kerry Washington, Priyanka Chopra, Bryan Cranston, Kendall Jenner, and Emma Watson attended the prestigious 2016 White House Correspondents Dinner.
Entertainment - Headliners – Bowling for Soup & EC Twins
In the Live Music Hall, Grammy-nominated pop-punk favorite, Bowling for Soup, pumps up the jams like it’s “1985” with a fun and energetic performance. In the mood for pulse-pounding beats instead? The DJ Club Room opens with DJ Urban Cowboy before being taken over by one of EDM’s most in-demand influencers, the EC Twins. With the internationally renowned duo reigning over the room with super-hot beats like chart-topper “Doing it Right”, this NYE is sure to get intense. Take a breather from the dance party and head to the Comedy Theatre where multiple comedians deliver side-splitting entertainment. Laughter, music, dancing, and no-holds-barred partying: there’s no better way to usher in a brand new year.
Head to Washington DC Hilton’s 6th Annual New Year’s Eve event, and get ready to experience an unforgettable NYE night.
