A thousand ways to ring in the New Year in Paris
Categories : Events, published on : 12/1/23
Illuminations, animated shop windows and Christmas markets have plunged Paris into a festive mood since mid-November. Now it's time to say goodbye to 2023 and celebrate the transition to 2024. Staying at Ouest Hôtel on New Year's Eve, you'll have plenty of ways to celebrate this unique evening. Here are just a few suggested by the hotel team.
A festive New Year's Eve
Take advantage of the lively atmosphere of the illuminated streets, department stores and Christmas markets to treat yourself to one last romantic stroll in 2023. The vast majority of Christmas activities will continue until January 8, and it would be a shame not to take advantage of them. After this pleasant appetizer, you can begin your New Year's Eve in earnest. And why not on a gourmet note? Restaurants, trendy bistros, Michelin-starred restaurants and typical Parisian brasseries are all offering special menus for the occasion, and are planning some great entertainment. You could also enjoy a gourmet meal aboard a bateau-mouche, watching Paris go by in lights as you toast the occasion with champagne. Or you could opt for a dazzling dinner show in one of Paris's most famous cabarets: Moulin Rouge, Paradis Latin or Crazy Horse. Here again, champagne is the order of the day.
Dancefloor and fireworks
Private parties are organized all over Paris. You'll find a lively clubbing atmosphere in venues full of character, with views of the Eiffel Tower or the Champs-Elysées, for example. It's best to book in advance so you can choose the right atmosphere and musical style. Or treat yourself to an evening of entertainment. Theater stages are of course open for this exceptional evening. You can see The Lion King at the Théâtre Mogador, Mamma Mia! at the Casino de Paris, a hilarious evening with the entire Djamel Comédie Club troupe or, in a completely different style, Nureyev's Nutcracker at the Opéra Bastille or the Bourgeois gentilhomme at the Comédie Française. Finally, for a taste of the magic of Paris en fête, head up to the Arc de Triomphe at 10pm. Here, the City of Paris presents a magical sound and light show, with a gigantic mapping of the monument. The show culminates in a fireworks display. A wonderful way to mark the start of the New Year. You'll then need just half an hour to walk along the illuminated avenues to the West Hotel...
After a festive and lively night in Paris, what a pleasure to return to the calm and comfortable cocoon of your room at the Ouest Hôtel. The next morning, you can enjoy a delicious, typically Parisian breakfast to give you a gourmet start to the first day of 2024. Don't forget to book your stay and your New Year's Eve party now!
