Fireworks are fun and watching the ball drop on Times Square from your living room may be a family tradition, but once in a while, don’t you want to glam it up for the biggest party night of the year, New Year’s Eve?

Rush and grab your tickets to Tampa’s premier, all-inclusive New Year’s Eve experience, the 8th annual Rooftop Eve on a rooftop in the heart of downtown Tampa. With an open bar that includes liquor, wine, beer, champagne all night long and a dessert reception in the price of your ticket, this is the ultimate way to ring in 2018. This event sells out every year, and prices go up the longer you wait, so don’t hesitate!

Tickets are $175 in advance and $225 at the door (if there are any left), but buying a ticket is not the only way to enjoy this party. If you really want to up the glamour quotient, gather a few friends and splurge for an eight or ten person private cabana. Enjoy a separate check-in area, premium private cabana space, lounge seating, cocktail server, bottle service and full open premium bar service including liquor, beer, wine, and champagne. The cabanas are $2,400 for the 8-person and $3000 for the 10-person. For an additional $500, add on a private bar and bartender.

Want something more intimate? Opt for a reserved 4-top table. For $1,000, reserve a table for four with a separate hosted check-in area, cocktail server, full open premium bar service and your very own bottle of champagne for the midnight toast!  

Of course, you may never need that table because with the entertainment the event organizers have lined up, you may never leave the dance floor. Phase 5 is a band that combines rock, soul, pop, funk, R&B, Motown, jazz and classics that will have even the most rhythmically challenged grooving, and DJ Papi draws the crowds with his mixes of Top 40, hip-hop, dance/house/EDM, salsa, merengue, bachata, reggaeton, reggae, dancehall, old school, freestyle and even some rock and country.

The event raises money for the DeBartolo Family Foundation. For more information or to buy tickets, visit Rooftop Eve, the Ultimate New Year's Eve Bash in Tampa!
