A Very Groovy New Year’s Eve

Plus, dive into the Holidays with a month of jazz, wine, and dining events at The Terrace

Buffalo Rising and The Terrace at Delaware Park present, A Very Groovy New Year’s Eve, on December 31, 2021 from 8:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m.

Guest’s may recall our previous New Year’s Eve event as, A 007 Affair. After taking a pause on last year’s event due to the COIVD-19 pandemic, this year we wanted to do something more broad, joyous, and campy as a way to encourage attendees to let loose after what has been an extremely difficult and serious year. This event will require proof of COVID-19 Vaccine and ID checks will be done at the door. All staff have been fully vaccinated as well. This is a small, intimate event with an extremely limited number of tickets available.

The heated patio upstairs and the outdoor area downstairs will be open for guests to wander outside and take in the elegant views of Hoyt Lake at night.

This event will also bring back some of your favorite WNY acts and roaming characters in a nod to the whole psychedelic era of spy films, romance, glamour, over indulgence, and a race for world domination.

Dress for this action-packed evening is creative “spy” attire – guests are encouraged to sport anything from formal black tie to crushed velvet suits, hotel bathrobes, evening gowns, scuba gear, micro-minis and go-go boots, and everything in-between.

Each guest will enjoy an open bar and food stations located throughout the two levels of The Terrace.

Music provided by Carina and the Six String Preacher (pictured above) and DJ Milk will once again help us greet the new year in exuberant style!

Be on the look out for go-go dancers, roaming characters, and more.

There will be a selection of groovalicious numbers throughout the night guaranteed to make you say “Yeah, Baby!”

The Terrace’s enclosed heated patio will be open for guests to enjoy the stunning views of Delaware Park.
