Build your Toronto adventure with these á la carte ideas for epic New Year’s Eve trips for every interest.

Usher in the New Year your way. Whether you want all the noisemakers, fireworks and dancing —or major introspective, quiet time—you can manifest the perfect start to 2024 in Toronto. Whatever your jam is, we have what you’re looking for. Here are some ideas to build your New Year’s Eve trip around.

Unwind with a New Year’s Eve spa visit

Book a Hammam Turkish Bath treatment at Hammam Spa By Céla Bayview or a Golden Body Scrub at the Spa at the Four Seasons Toronto so you can ring in 2024 glowing and relaxed.

Nosh on New Year’s Eve dim sum or noodles in Chinatown

Grab a bite in Chinatown. Local fave Rol San has all-day dim sum. Or try King’s Noodle if you’ve got a hankering for a big bowl of sui kow noodle soup and BBQ duck.

Enjoy a New Year’s Eve skate under festive lights

Nathan Phillips Square’s Cavalcade of Lights transforms one of the city’s most iconic spaces into a sparkling wonderland that people of all ages take delight in. Rent skates for a spin on the rink and snap photos by the TORONTO sign.

If you’ve got the energy to stick around ’til midnight, the city traditionally puts on a dazzling fireworks display, lighting up the downtown sky as we enter the New Year.

Catch a New Year’s Eve film screening

Prefer quiet time? Grab a bag of popcorn at the concession stand and catch an evening showing of Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut or Jordan Peele’s Nope at the arthouse TIFF Bell Lightbox and escape into the storylines of these modern classics.

Enjoy New Year’s Eve with bottle service

Book the third seating of the night at Hotel X’s Valerie rooftop restaurant, and you’ll score a bottle service booth and a five-course dinner menu. You’ll also get a stash of party favours, so you’ll be all set to ring in the New Year from the hotel rooftop, which offers one of the city’s best vantage points of the waterfront fireworks (with extra food stations, to boot!).

Indulge in an over-the-top New Year’s Eve menu

Splash out on NYE dinner at LOUIX LOUIS, located on the 31st floor of the St. Regis Hotel, where they’ll have live music as the soundtrack to a gourmet feast. Mains include Canadian lobster with squid ink pasta, AAA tenderloin and Wagyu short rib, or roasted black cod with leeks (have everyone at your table choose a different one so that you can taste test each dish!). 

Keep in mind you’ll want to save room for dessert; options include the restaurant’s famed 13-layer chocolate hazelnut King’s Cake.

Find clarity with a New Year’s Eve wilderness hike

If you’re more inclined to take this time to reflect on the past year and set goals for the new year while enjoying Mother Nature, hit up Rouge National Urban Park

At 79 square kilometres, it’s one of the largest urban parks in North America, and you’ll find more than 12 kilometres of trails to choose from. In winter, you may catch a glimpse of a snowy owl, hairy woodpecker, turkey or maybe even a coyote or deer.

Pro tip: make a post-hike reservation for a decadent meal of lobster and crab at the legendary Fishman Lobster Clubhouse Restaurant, within easy driving distance of the park.

Dine on an epic NYE menu

Head to buzzy King West’s Ristorante Sociale and feast on their NYE menu, which starts with taleggio and truffle grilled cheese, continues with antipasti, primo and secondo, and finishes with torta del nuovo anno. 

The only difficult decision you’ll need to make is between tagliatelle and ragu bianco or spaghetti with mascarpone and truffle for your primo—either way, you’re all set for a delicious night.


Dig into a New Year’s Eve chef’s menu

Welcome 2024 with a belly full of delicious food. Yorkville’s MIMI Chinese lets you choose from their regular service or indulge in their premium chef’s choice option, so you don’t have to make any decisions—just enjoy every bite!

Stroll a New Year’s Eve light festival

Work off that holiday feast while taking in the dazzling festive lights. Bundle up for a romantic stroll through Yorkville to experience the upscale neighbourhood’s Holiday Magic display, which features sparkling lights and interactive, illuminated benches that resemble campfires.


Visit a pop-up New Year’s Eve speakeasy

Cocktail enthusiasts, get your speakeasy moment this NYE at the Bisha Speakeasy. One of the Bisha Hotel’s rock and roll suites, designed by Lenny Kravitz and his team, has been transformed into an exclusive guest lounge.


Go on a New Year’s Eve trip to Morocco

Wanderlusting folks, escape to Morocco by partying at Soluna this New Year’s Eve. The theme for the 31st is Midnight in Marrakech, with featured cocktails and dishes, belly dancers, and theatrical performances.

Say cheers at a Roaring 20s cocktail night

Slip into a flapper dress or zoot suit and head to Kissa’s A Night at the Gatsby’s Roaring 20s-themed affair. Sip featured cocktails, enjoy dinner in the vinyl listening lounge and then dance the year away on both floors of this new venue.

Chill at a New Year’s Eve EDM party

Electronic fans take note: you’ll want to celebrate the new year at W Toronto’s NYE Party. DJ Frank Walker will be spinning electric beats in the Living Room, and the W will be serving up curated cocktails while 416 Night Market dishes out street food inspired by the city’s neighbourhoods.

Get down at a New Year’s Eve outdoor party

Get your party on at the Distillery Winter Village for some festive outdoor revelry. This year, Kiss 92.5’s Devo Brown and DJ Clymaxxx will be on stage hosting from 10 p.m. until 12:30 a.m., along with live performances through the evening. And yes, when the clock strikes 12, there’ll be fireworks above Trinity Street.

Catch a New Year’s Eve DJ set

Other big bashes where you can ring in 2024 with some great beats? The Black & White Ball at Clio and the parties at Ultra Supper Club and Sofia Yorkville.

Catch New Year’s fireworks

Finally, say farewell to 2023 and hello to 2024 with an OTT fireworks display. Besides Nathan Phillips Square and Distillery Winter Village, you can take in NYE fireworks along the waterfront. Numerous vantage points provide prime viewing, including party boats offering cocktails and entertainment.
