The Hoxton is one of the trendiest Paris hotels to stay at in the city and there are often events, including on New Year's Eve.

Whether your year was full of trials or triumphs, we can all find a few good reasons to celebrate the end of 2018 and usher in a New Year. New Year’s Eve is an opportunity to treat yourself to a fun end to this season of fêtes, and it’s hard to think of a more glamorous way to say adieu to the année than taking yourself out for a night on the town in Paris. Here are some great options for celebrating the New Year in Paris.

One of the best luxury hotels in Paris, The Bristol has a three-Michelin-star restaurant with a view onto the leafy interior courtyard garden.

If you’re in the mood for bubbles and bling, treat yourself to thee tasting menu at Le Bristol’s New Year’s Eve Dinner. Reserve in advance to be sure to enjoy one of the four proposed prix fixes, ranging from a four-course tasting menu (520 eur) and a six-course menu at the three-Michelin-star Epicure restaurant (1,200 eur).

The Hoxton Paris is one of the trendiest places to stay in the city for its design, including the atrium lobby with swerving staircase (left). The Hoxton also has one of the best cocktail bars in Paris and it does a mean mulled cider in winter (right).

Hipster hotel The Hoxton will wrap up its month-long Hoxmas Cocktails event on December 31. The hotel bar is proposing four limited-edition cocktails for the occasion: Spicy Wine Sour, Mandaritini, Jingle Bell, and Mulled Cider. Be sure to get your hands on one—or four—before it’s too late.

One of our favorite bars for cocktails on the Champs Elysées, Le Drugstore also puts on events for New Year's Eve.
