New Year's

Motor City Gala

When: Sun., Dec. 31, 8:30 p.m. 2017

The word “gala” should not be tossed around lightly, but it fits when it comes to the Atheneum Hotel’s Motor City Gala. Located in the heart of Greektown, the hotel’s 18,000 square-foot, three-story Grand Ballroom will host a lavish evening — the perfect opportunity to bid adieu to 2017 with class. Dress to impress while indulging in premium bar offerings, hors d’oeuvres, and champagne stations, all of which lead up to the midnight blowout — complete with a balloon drop, late night munchies, and DJ Chrome with special guests churning out the tunes until 4 a.m. You can also entertain the idea of making the Atheneum your first crash pad of 2018, because, let’s be honest, you’d rather be hungover in the lap of luxury than hurling in the back of an Uber.

Price: $119-$2,700
