With New Year’s Eve falling on a Saturday this year, it’s almost as if the world is giving you permission to go big. Take full advantage (after all, New Year’s Eve won’t fall on a Saturday again until 2016) by celebrating the occasion at Four Seasons Hotel Austin.
Start your evening in TRIO, where the restaurant’s annual New Year’s Eve Dinner Celebration combines the Four Seasons hallmarks of customer service and incredible food with a warm and festive ambiance. Surrounded by friends and family, you’ll savor a four-course menu of food – prepared to perfection by Executive Chef Elmar Prambs – including such delectable options as Crispy Pork Belly, Beef Tenderloin and Lobster Tail. Reservations are strongly recommended and may be made by calling TRIO at (512) 685-8300.
After toasting to a fun-filled night amid TRIO’s many twinkling lights, head upstairs to the Lobby Lounge for live music, specialty cocktails and a midnight balloon drop. Starting at 9:00 pm, pianist Brett Cline will tickle the ivories with talented covers of songs by Billy Joel, Eric Clapton and other popular artists. Be sure to pace the Louis Roederer, though, since the fun really kicks into high-gear at midnight with a balloon drop featuring more than 100 balloons. The Lobby Lounge New Year’s Eve celebration is $25 per person; for more information, please call (512) 685-8150.
