What’s the difference in the Vices party and Virtues party really? In a nutshell, one is downstairs and cash bar (Vices), the other one is upstairs, includes drinks, and has more activations/glamour (Virtues).

What’s the vibe for the Vices party? A modern underground of sin. You are resolving to give it up, well, we are going to let you blow it out one last time. Each room is themed around a different vice. The Vices party is downstairs in the Living Room and is a cash bar with a complimentary champagne toast at midnight.

Table reservations are available starting at $2000 and include reserved seating, tickets for your table guests, and spirits. Please visit tablelist to book.

Are drinks included in the Vices party? The Vices party is cash bar only (unless you opt for the table reservation option). Have at it. Anything you want, we’ve got.

Is there food at the Vices party? After midnight, there will be a complimentary snack. Access to Devour in Trace is available with an additional ticket and features an array of decadent desserts and your favorite "diet starts tomorrow" cheat meals. Highly recommended.

What is the vibe for the Virtues Party? Gold, glitter, extravagance, and the Greek Goddess of Virtues meet your 2019 resolutions in a very wild way. Without giving too much away, expect to live your best life and seriously rock out to Capyac. This event is on the 2nd floor of the hotel.

What does a Virtues GA ticket include? General Admission tickets include: entry, drink vouchers, champagne toast and a midnight snack. There is no reserved seating with GA tickets.

What does a Virtues VIP ticket include? VIP tickets include: entry, drink vouchers, champagne toast, midnight snack PLUS (here comes the VIP perks) upgraded VIP bar, reserved seating in both the VIP bar area as well as in the main room, access to surprises/secret rooms, more snacks and desserts, and bragging rights.

What does the Virtues Elite ticket include? This is the only ticket that gets you access to everything in the hotel: Virtues on the 2nd floor, Vices in the Living Room and Devour in Trace. Upstairs you get VIP perks and your drink vouchers may be used downstairs at any bar (see Virtues VIP drink options for what you can order downstairs in the Living Room or Trace).

Is there food at the Virtues party? Our favorite question. All guests can take advantage of the midnight snack. VIP guests will receive heavier snacks including desserts. Additionally, a ticket to Devour in Trace gives you back and forth access for a full reception style gluttonous affair.

What types of drinks are available for GA ticket holders at the Virtues Party?

Absolut Vodka, Hanger One + Rose Vodka, Boodles Gin, Beefeater Gin, Playa Real Silver & Pinneapple Tequila, Altos Tequila, Flor De Cana Rum, Monkey 47 Scotch, Tin Cup Whiskey, Proper 12 Irish Whiskey, Jameson Whiskey, Remy v.s.o.p. Cognac

What should I wear? Dress to impress. It’s New Years. Don’t be the guy in flip flops.

How many drink tickets do I get with the Virtues Party? We’ll start you off with seven drink tickets and serve bubbly throughout the night.

What's happening in Trace? Can I eat there before the party? Devour in Trace is open from 6pm - 2am and will be serving an all-you-can-eat reception style smorgasbord of your favorite foods. Expect a literal fountain of queso, house made pizza rolls, beef sliders with beer cheese & crispy onions, brisket, a mountain of pork belly (BACON!), fried chicken, truffle bourbon milkshakes and donuts.....and so on. Come and go as you please with your Devour wristband.

Where do I check-in? Vices will check-in by Trace outside starting at 9:30. Virtues will check-in upstairs (head up the stairs from the Welcome entrance).
