If you’ve ever been to the historic Masonic Temple, then you know that it is made for partying — and party you shall with the epic Motown Countdown. Three grand AF rooms will each serve up a different vibe for your final mood swings of 2018. The Crystal Ballroom spans two levels and boasts sky-high ceilings big enough for a slew of VIP booths, with jams from DJ Kalendr and Klees. DJs from City Air Detroit will infuse the Chapel with some bass-heavy tunes and the Parlor will kick it old school with music from the ’80s and ’90s. There are drink and booth packages a-go-go, late-night eats, as well as the standard balloon drop because if you’re going to get down it’s got to count.
Doors open at 8 p.m.; 500 Temple Ave., Detroit; 313-638-2724; themasonic.com; Tickets start at $99.
