Location is as important as choosing a venue. Being stuck in the famous Bangalorean traffic is one crappy way to start your New year. Choose places that are nearby and are easily accessible. Remember to be wary of the parking issues that may occur. You can either uber or carpool (or if you're feeling  adventurous walk!! ) to your venues.

4. Venue/ Ambience

Now everyone has their own way of celebrating New Year’s. Some prefer to keep it quiet, while some (read most of them !!) prefer partying through the night (counting down the seconds to the New Year surrounded by music, laughter and glitter). The ambience of a place can make or break your celebrations. Rooftop parties are usually one of the most sought after venues. Welcoming the New Year under the stars while grooving to the beats of the DJ is an appealing way to welcome your New Year and it does have a unique charm. Indoor celebrations have a whole different vibe to it. Whether you choose a rooftop venue or an indoor setup New Year events 2020 are going to be vibrant, wild and full of life. 

5. Music

It is known that a playlist that refuse to get your limbs moving is a NO-NO!!! Check out the DJs and the kind of music they play to get an idea of what to expect. If your plan is to welcome the new year Bollywood style, there are plenty of venues in Bangalore that will attract you. If that's not your jam, then there are few other places that play Rock/Metal/Psytrance music.

7. Highlights

To derive the maximum experience from an event, ask yourself what does an event exactly offer? While planning, find out what to expect from the event. While most of the events will have dance floors, there are other things you might want to look out for. Some places offer games, karaoke and so on. Some places will have separate areas for families to sit and enjoy their family time and at the same time not miss the fun on the dance floor. A few places even offer kids area/nannies to keep an eye on your kids while you dance your way into the New year.

Hopefully this list will help you figure out where to go to celebrate your New Year 2020. Now pick up your phones, get your chaddi buddies or your families together and get planning!! Time to party peeps!!
