Bid adieu to 2018 in style with the Motor City Gala. Located at the Atheneum Suite Hotel in the heart of Greektown, the hotel’s 18,000-square-foot, three-story grand ballroom and wrap-around mezzanine make for the perfect backdrop for an evening suited for the word “gala.” Hors d’oeuvres, martinis, and a bubbling Champagne station will serve as the evening’s festive fuel and DJs Chrome, Leo Alton, Michael Hartman, Angel DjLito Nunez, Alejandro Cesar, Matt Swarin, and Manual Antonio will take turns with the tunes. Midnight pizza and coneys will be served. You can also entertain making the Athenum your first crash pad of 2019, because, let’s be honest, you’d rather be hungover in the lap of luxury than hurling in the back of a Lyft.
Doors open at 8:30 p.m.; 1000 Brush St., Detroit; 313-962-2323; motorcitygala.com; Tickets start at $135.
