House Party (With a Fun Theme!)
Sometimes you just don’t feel like going out on the town for New Year’s Eve. Bring the fun to you this year, by hosting an epic blowout bash or intimate house party with close friends and family. Step up your event with a festive theme! Need some ideas? Try: Roaring ’20’s (see above), Party Animal, Ugly Sweater Party, Disco Fever, Sequins & Fur, or Masquerade Party. Not all themes have to be fancy. Host a cozy Onesie Party!
In addition to planning a fun theme, make sure to plan ahead if you’ll be serving alcohol at your party. Cocktails and champagne toasts mean your guests will need a safe ride home after partying well after midnight. Take care of your guests with the help of St. Louis County Cab.

Family-Friendly Fun on New Year’s Eve

Ride in Style, with BEST Transportation
Going out on New Year’s Eve can be expensive because party packages at bars and restaurants usually start at $100/per person and go up quickly. Most events sell out quickly, so you may miss out if you don’t make plans early. This is why we like to recommend a fun night on the town in your own “club on wheels” with our sister company, BEST Transportation. Our party bus rentals start at only $17/per person. Or, you can reserve a limo to celebrate New Year’s in style for only $40/per person. Party people like that they can bring along all of their own food, drinks and music to make the party bus their very own VIP section all night long! So, you can cruise downtown to watch the fireworks, then stop by your favorite bar for a nightcap before heading home after midnight.
or, send 2018 off in epic brunch fashion, with:
