Philly Revelers Celebrate New Year’s Eve

Philly Revelers Celebrate New Year’s Eve at Craft Concept Group Soirees

Craft Concept Group New Year’s Eve held New Year’s Eve parties at a few of their bars and one very special place Bar 57 located at Liberty One Observation Deck.
I started off the night at the Sugarhouse/Penns Landing VIP Party for the 6PM fireworks.


They were as spectacular as every, and the hospitality was much appreciated.

Then I headed over to Glitter City Gala at the Bellevue, which I’ll write about tomorrow.

Bru was happening

Then I headed next store to U-Bahn and the place was packed as well. This shot was taken about 11PM

At Bar 57 nearly 300 guests attended the one-of-a-kind NYE experience, where they enjoyed a lite buffet, spirits and entertainment by Philly’s own premier DJ Jason Weiss. I arrived about 1115PM and the party was in full swing.

At midnight high above the city party goers watched as the sky exploded with fireworks at Penns Landing while swaying to Auld Lang Syne playing in the background.

The team behind Brü Craft and Wurst keep the German vibe going at their subterranean bar U-Bahn, set to open officially next week, but Tuesday night

the Delaware Valley Legacy Fund hosted its successful monthly OurNightOut networking mixer at the industrial the 3,300 square foot space

 which includes
two bars and a kitchen. U-Bahn will offer local beers and food

 Photos provided by Aversa Pr. I was supposed to be at this event but my photo exhibit was postponed from January to Feb on this Tues. I’ll write more about that great event on Tuesday.
 I love this trend of classic video games in a bar. Get off your phone and play some pacman!!
 Hey are they TV’s
 Hey Mr DJ put a record on.
I think this is going to be a pretty big deal, it’s like a subterranean beer garden
Hey Jim Donovan from CBS3!!
