Party with Hilton Daytona Beach this New Year's Eve
All the New Year's Eve action is happening at Hilton Daytona Beach's oceanfront hotel. With three different New Year's parties occurring in the hotel, you're guaranteed to find a party that will cater to your celebration style. Doc's Bales Grill offers a family-friendly prime rib and seafood buffet, with gorgeous views of the ocean. Fill up on delicious favorites like lobster thermidor and juicy cuts of prime rib before heading to the Grand Ballroom where the family-friendly party is just getting started with live music and entertainment. At midnight, enjoy a complimentary champagne toast to ring in the New Year.
If you purchase the Doc Bales' Dinner Buffet you'll also receive complimentary entry to McCoy's Rum Room. What's happening in McCoy's Rum Room for New Year's Eve, you ask? Only a lively dueling piano party from 8pm-10pm that includes bottomless champagne. If champagne isn't your style, don't worry. This is a rum bar, after all. You'll find a variety of top-shelf liquors and a full bar that caters to handcrafted cocktails, so you never have to be empty-handed.
If you are looking for a lavish way to welcome the New Year, the hotel's Coquina Ballroom will provide the perfect setting to make new memories in the New Year. The party gets started at 8:30pm where you can nosh on delightful hors d'oeuvres such as pan-seared scallops and toasted duck ravioli. Liverpool Live, Florida's #1 Beatles Tribute band, will be playing your favorite tunes while you dance the night away along the oceanfront.
Starting at 9pm guests will enjoy an elegant dinner buffet complete with mouthwatering carving station, Atlantic raw bar, Georgia grit station and New Year "lucky" Station. From Irish cheddar and smoked bacon grits to lobster-stuffed cod and pulled pork sliders, the menu caters to everyone's cravings. Just make sure to save room for dessert.
From 10:30pm-11:30pm you'll find a beautiful dessert station and coffee bar (to make sure that you're not falling asleep before the ball drop). You'll also find poker tables setup in the ballroom, in case you care to test your luck before the New Year. Soon you'll hear the champagne bottles popping as wait staff provide you with a complimentary glass of champagne to usher in midnight.
At 1am it's time to say goodbye to 2020 (for now). Don't worry, you'll be able to get up the next morning and enjoy a hearty mimosa or Bloody Mary at Doc Bales' before you go. Hair of the dog never tasted so good!
