What’s the Champagne Ball countdown like?
Our countdown is HUGE. We’ve got custom made video that plays in the Grand Ballroom and Sky Lounge and every dance floor has an emcee to hype the crowd.
The Grand Ballroom includes 1,000 balloons and 8 confetti filled 3 feet wide balloons that rain confetti on the crowd after we pop them via remote control. We’ll also have a double drums session with the DJ Sugar just after midnight.
If you’re looking for a more intimate setting at midnight we have two rooms on the 23rd off of the Sky Lounge with a beautiful views of the city that are free from music and emcees.

Reserved seat tickets guarantee you a seat at a table for 10; you choose your table when purchasing your tickets. General admission tickets do not guarantee you a seat throughout the night, but there is GA seating in several areas throughout the party.
