Ring in 2023 at Gatsby’s DC Fireworks NYE Party

Who says it’s too chilly to enjoy the nautical opportunities that D.C.’s perch along the Potomac presents? Gatsby’s DC Fireworks NYE Party proves that boarding a boat in the dead of Washington, D.C.’s winter can actually be a great decision—that is, if the boat is as swanky as the Spirit of Washington.

The yacht’s multiple enclosed, climate-controlled decks promise beautiful views of the water without the biting winter chill this New Year’s Eve. And with a theme like The Great Gatsby, you can definitely expect a bit of glamour! Dress up in your cutest vintage flapper dress and come to the southwest waterfront starting at 8 p.m. on December 31st. VIPs check in first, followed by the rest of the ticket holders around 8:30 p.m. Then the ship will set sail at 9 p.m. until 1 a.m.—promising breathtaking views of D.C.’s midnight fireworks—with a fully stocked buffet, an open bar pouring premium spirits, and two DJs spinning a mix of top 40 hits and EDM. Needless to say, you should wear your dancing shoes. All-inclusive tickets start at $235 per person.
