New Year's Eve events in Charleston 

The last night of the year brings many options. You could spend it with family in an alcohol-free setting. Maybe you want to go to a bar, but need to know what kind of cover you should expect to pay and who's got the best cash-filled balloon drop. To you, New Year's could be eating an extravagant meal. Or, if you've got that perfect glittery dress in the closet, you're going to need to show it off at one of the evening's biggest parties.

The City Paper is helping make your New Year's Eve planning simple with our complete list of events. We've organized the events by Eat (dinners), Drink (bars), and Be Merry (parties, and bars with events).
