No matter what you decide, rest easy knowing you have a peaceful accommodation to escape to at the end of the night when you stay at The Paradise Inn.

A Guide to Ringing in NYE throughout Key West

You don’t have to be in New York to see a ball drop. Granted, it might not be a glittery sphere being lowered at midnight when you stop by one of the best bars in and around Duval Street on the final day of the year.

  • See the traditional lowering of a pirate wench at Schooner’s Wharf. This party starts early in the day with local and national acts. Enjoy party favors, champagne and fun. 
  • Sloppy Joe’s Bar has its own take on the classic ball drop. Every year, this Key West staple has the Dropping of the Conch Shell. The party starts at 10 p.m., with a rooftop party hosted by DJ Sanaris of Pulse Groovz.
  • Ring in the New Year at First Flight. Every year, a replica of an old Pan American plan, complete with a stewardess, will take flight in the garden. Come dressed in your finest Gatsby-era costumes, and enjoy champagne toasts, a live band, DJ, and chef-manned action stations. 

Wander up and down Duval Street, and you’re sure to come across a party taking place.
