Will 2018 be the year you unleash your wild side? If so, W Austin has two New Year's Eve parties to help you say farewell to 2017 and embrace the year ahead, and both promise to be fabulous.
If you're feeling extravagant, book your ticket to Jungle Glam. This wild, glittery party on the hotel's second floor will boast beats by DJ Creativity and DJ Javi, and be a ferociously good time. General admission tickets include entry, drink vouchers, and a champagne toast and snack at midnight. But if you want to turn it up a notch, spring for the VIP ticket and get all that plus an upgraded bar, reserved seating, more snacks, and access to the extra surprises and secret rooms.
Downstairs in the Living Room and TRACE, Urban Wild will be raging. Street culture, graffiti, and the urban landscape mix with a neon jungle, led by beats from DJ Heat and DJ Vicious. The party is a cash bar, with a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.
Table reservations for Urban Jungle start at $2,000 and include reserved seating, tickets for your party, and spirits. Reach out to Nick Sanchez at (512) 542-3662 to book and for full details regarding bottle service.
Really want to go all out? The Jungle Glam Elite ticket is for you. This is the only ticket that gets you access to both the Urban Jungle and Jungle Glam parties. Upstairs, you get VIP perks and drink vouchers that can be used downstairs at the bar.
Those wanting to fuel up before the night can dine with reservations at TRACE, with the last seating happening at 8:30 pm. Bonus: Guests who dine there on New Year's Eve may attend the Urban Wild party for a discounted rate of $50, or the Jungle Glam party for a discounted general admission rate of $150. Tickets may be purchased from your server that evening, but keep in mind that they are subject to availability and not guaranteed.
So you don't have to worry about driving after all that fun, check out the W Austin's special NYE room packages, which include your party tickets with the accommodations (along with other perks).
The morning after, recover with Hangover Brunch starting at 11 am in the Living Room. All-you-can-eat pancakes, Tito's Handmade Vodka Bloody Mary and mimosa bars, and additional items (hey, bacon) await.
Regardless of which party you're aiming to attend, make sure you dress to impress — don’t be the guy in flip-flops.
