Best Places to Celebrate NYE on the Central Coast

New Year’s Eve is a night of celebrating tradition all around the world. One of the key components of a traditional New Year’s celebration is spending the final hours of the waning year surrounded by friends and family, and sharing a champagne toast at midnight. Here is our guide to the best New Year’s Eve celebrations on the Central Coast!

1. Cattlemen’s Lounge

Visit the Cattlemen’s Lounge in Paso Robles to ring in the New Year with handmade cocktails and a midnight champagne toast of local wine. Live music from Soundhouse, delicious food, and an intimate venue are just part of the fun of this classic Paso Robles celebration. Walk back to your room at the Paso Robles Inn as the clock strikes twelve, and start the New Year in the heart of California Wine Country.
