Things to Do D.C. New Year's Eve Gala

'

Editorial Review

The young professional group's annual soiree has moved to the Willard Hotel from Woodley Park, but the idea is still the same: multiple ballrooms take on themes like 1920 speakeasy (with mock casino gambling and swing music), the Caribbean (live reggae from the Oasis Band), Havana (live salsa) and Casablanca (the Willard's piano bar), plus retro DJs, classical waltzes, karaoke and club music. Tickets include an open bar and dinner buffet; a VIP option adds early admission, a reception and sit-down dinner.
