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.
