How many balloon drops can you watch in a lifetime? This New Year's Eve, you can party like a baller on a private jet, pop Champagne by the magnum, and hang with celebs like Justin Bieber—if you're willing to drop some serious coin, that is. From New York to Las Vegas, here are five blowout bashes that will make ringing in 2017 one for the books.
Fontainebleau, Miami Beach

Miami landmark Fontainebleau is taking this New Year’s Eve seriously, with a $500,000 VIP deal that even Justin Bieber would envy. Except the pop star comes with the package. The best seats in the house will be reserved for you as the Biebs performs poolside and uber DJ Skrillex gets things moving at the in-house nightclub LIV. But that’s not all. End the evening by hopping aboard a private yacht to party with DJ Marshmello at Story nightclub. Did we mention you also get a penthouse for 10, private chef dinners, and use of supercars like the Lamborghini Aventador Roadster?

How do you raise the bar on OTT partying in New York? Throw a lavish bash like the one at 1 Oak nightclub, a favorite late-night haunt of A-list celebs from Jay Z and Beyoncé to Kanye and Pharrell. Grab your friends (up to 24 of them) and go all in with the $15,000 prime-real-estate table, which offers bottle service complete with four magnum bottles of Belvedere Night Saber vodka, 10 bottles of Dom Pérignon Luminous, and one bottle of Don Julio tequila. Dance the night away to tunes spun by DJ Anthony Pisano.

It’s bubbly as far as the eye can see at the Dom Perignon Party at The Little Nell in Aspen. Priced at $495 per person, the lively celebration will also feature Belvedere cocktails and an open bar, multiple food stations, and music by electric violinist Kat V, DJ Lexey, DJ Cyn, and the Josefina Mendez Jazz Trio. Skip the trip to the bar with the $9,995 package for eight guests, which gets you your own private butler.
The Knickerbocker, New York City
If you’re looking for a decadent option in New York City, look no further than the rooftop party at St. Cloud bar at The Knickerbocker hotel, where you can usher in the new year 150 feet beneath the Times Square ball. Two tickets to the swank soiree, a two-night hotel stay, a top-shelf open bar, gourmet bites, dancing, and a Champagne toast at midnight can be yours starting at $2,890.

Why settle for celebrating New Year’s Eve in one city when you can celebrate in two? Jump on one of PrivateFly’s jets and toast the new year in Sydney, Australia, before partying it up for 12 hours in the air, and then touching down in Los Angeles to celebrate midnight a second time. Pricing runs at €132,838 (approximately $138,641) for the entire plane, with enough seating for 18 people.
