Do you think New Year's is a rip off and the thought of planning something got you down? Leave it to Andre Balazs to turn your frown upside down by opening up his 18th Floor Pleasure Palace on New Year's Eve to the common man. And by common, we mean anyone willing to shell out major moolah to spend a night enjoying wrap around views and a serious party. But don't fret, prices haven't changed too much from last year's Courtney Love hosted bash, with Standing Room tickets going for $250 and a table for six right on the dance floor costing you a cool $4500, almost $1500 off of last year's price, and including a free bottle of bubbly. What a bargain! Guests will be entertained by Marianne Faithful, and party till the sun comes up. Wait, you don't want to spend that much on New Year's but still want to hang out at the Standard? OK.
Cheapskates can purchase tickets to the party across the hall at Le Bain for just $30 ($50 at the door) for a party that will feature Holy Ghost, House of House and LCD Soundsystem's Nancy "Don't Call Me Vera" Whang. But in case you still feel like balling out, you can reserve yourself a table for $650 for this shimmy. Talent, money, and the Meatpacking District - now that's what New Year's Eve in New York is all about!.
