Cheap/free/local/outside your apartment New Year’s 2016 parties on Capitol Hill

New Year's Eve Post-Space Needle Fireworks - January 1st, 2010

Counting down the various parties and events going on at restaurants and bars across Capitol Hill is not a good chore for a completist. The good times are innumerable. Most venues are open, many will host patrons in their usual cover-free fashion. Plenty, however, make a bigger deal out of the big time party night. As is the CHS tradition, we’ve documented many of the parties below from free to wow, that’s expensive. It’s nowhere near the complete roster which some of you will probably appreciate as you hope you’ll be able to squeeze inside your favorite watering hole in time for the stroke of midnight. We’ve also mostly steered away from listings focused on special NYE dinners — for those interested in a fancy meal to end 2015, there are plenty to choose from. Hopefully you made your reservations for the best weeks ago. Note: Some of the prices listed are pre-sale so cost at door could vary. Let us know what we missed in comments or send mail to We’ll continue to add listings through the 31st.

UPDATE: Do NOT Drive! — Seattle hopes cheap rides in neighborhoods like Pike/Pine will help curb deadly DUIs

Happy 2016!
