FREE NEW YEAR'S EVE BASH atop Historic Bunker Hill

*** We are very excited to announce that the Omni Los Angeles Hotel at Bunker Hill has enthusiastically invited our members to be an important part of their New Year's Eve festivities. (We had an amazingly successful and memorable event there on Christmas eve).  ***

So, let's say a big "Hello" to 2014 together in the relaxing and luxurious environment of this stylish hotel's Noé Lounge. 

Live music with the Rick Michael Quartet and a DJ will make this a night to remember. Complimentary Party Favors and Hats will be provided courtesy of Noé Lounge.

Also, no need to worry about drink or beverage minimums because there are none! :)  When you're  doing NYE L.A. style, like we are, there's an outdoor patio showcasing the stunning downtown skyline, artistic water features of California Plaza and fire pits. 

It's perfectly okay to come by yourself--most people do--and don't worry you won't be by yourself for long. You will be warmly greeted by one of our friendly Hosts and introduced to fellow members.

The Omni Los Angeles Hotel at California Plaza, a four-diamond hotel, sits atop historic Bunker Hill in the heart of downtown Los Angeles.

This is a Very Special occasion and an upscale lounge, so gentlemen we want to see you in a jacket. And ladies, you know how it's done. Something trendy or festive is perfect.   

Parking: The hotel will be at capacity due to the Rose Bowl. Plan to park in the adjacent structure. Or other nearby lots.
Metro: Use the Pershing Square or Civic Center Station.

    Happy NYE morning! We had such a great response to this event that maybe LAFC should do its very own party next year. But that's a whole other Convo.
    Right now, these are the unadulterated truths:
    1) If you do not see your name listed under "YES" Rsvps, you are not on the list.
    2) If you are wise, you will get to Noé on time 8:30 and if you're extra wise, even earlier like 8pm. Fashionably late isn't anything to aim for today.
    3) Be cognizant that a YES RSVP does NOT guarantee entry. There's only so much free seating and standing room at any given time.
    4) If this doesn't work out for you for whatever reason, know that your tax dollars are paying for a really swell FREE NYE celebration at Grand Park about a block away from Noé. That goes from 6pm to 1am. Amos & E are performing and Fool's Gold. Both KCRW faves.
    5) We all look forward to crossing paths with you in 2014.
    Happy New Year!

    All I can say is WOW! This night was amazing. Everything a New Year's Eve party should be. Great venue. Great live music. And most of all friendly folks eager to make new friends and bring in the new year with fervor and gusto!

    I'd like to personally thank all of the volunteers who saved tables, handed out glowbands, and made new members feel welcome. Our volunteers are what makes us different from every other Meetup group: we are a community of music lovers.

    And a very special thanks to Annette. She continues to organize successful and enjoyable events. This event had its moments, such as an 11th hour venue change. Annette was up to every challenge. This event set a new LAFC record for indoor event rsvps at 494. (We had another 165 rsvps from other groups.) The overall record--set by Rolando--is 498. All leadership positions at LAFC are earned. It gives me great pleasure to promote Annette to Asst Organizer, the 3rd ranking position in "world's largest and friendliest music club."

    Oh no! Are RSVPs closed? I always forget to actually click 'yes' even though I want to go!

    December 31, 2013

  • Annette R.

    BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: one of my major apprehensions about increasing the rsvp number has been the issue of the "wait" for drinks. Just cause it's a FREE doesn't mean you want to wait forever for a drink.
    The Omni is providing us with a DEDICATED BAR!!! Thank you Omni Hotel and Mr. Tyler!!
