ON NEW YEAR’S EVE, THESE SPOTS ARE THE BEST-OF-THE-BEST TO EXPERIENCE EVERYTHING PITTSBURGH HAS TO OFFER.
Best View of the Burgh: The Lemont
The Lemont takes the cake for its spectacularly stunning view from Mount Washington. Sure to induce instant smiles, it is the perfect spot to bring a date. As the sun drifts behind the horizon while you sip on cocktails, you can peer out the huge glass windows and take in the entire city. With Pittsburgh First Night being right downtown, this is the perfect place to start your evening. Enjoy a fine dining experience with divine food and of course, some bubbly. Who doesn’t want to ring in the New Year with elegance, grace, and style?

Best Spot to Dance the Night Away : Cavo
Cavo will get your heads shaking and hips moving. This multi-room venue is always full of surprises with great DJs, bottle service, flashing lights, multiple bars, and party vibes. The nightclub is a great space to say goodbye to 2022 and dance like there is no tomorrow (well, at least no 2022 tomorrow). If you have a big group, it’s always fun to reserve a table with bottle service and a place to lounge when your feet are tired or you just want to enjoy your cocktail. At midnight, the space goes wild. Be ready for an unforgettable experience.

Most Unique Experience: GAteway Clipper
Gateway Clipper Cruises can be the adventure you never knew you needed. With two different cruise types – Dining Cruise or Dance Cruise – you’ll be enjoying the three rivers like never before and ringing in the New Year on the water as the fireworks sparkle overhead.
The New Year’s Eve dinner cruise is for family fun with no age limit, while the Dance Cruise is for adults 21+ only. You won’t want to miss the laughs, drinks, and views from the top deck. Just remember to bring a jacket – that Pittsburgh air can get a tad bit chilly. 350 W Station Square Drive Pittsburgh, PA 15219 | gatewayclippper.com
