For New Year’s Eve 2023, it’s adults only aboard the Dolly Varden, a unique central Manhattan restaurant inspired by the colorful, fashionable Charles Dickens character and the energetic, powerful locomotive that once carried passengers up the West Side of New York City. This special event takes place across two levels, including a train-car style space and six distinctly spectacular suites that bring two rollicking, elegant eras--the Gilded and Jazz Ages--back to life alongside the upscale modern decor. It’s a charming, colorful, captivating way to close out the year.
The evening begins with a healthy heaping of free appetizers from the restaurant’s elevated menu and fine sensibilities continue throughout with a five-hour premium open bar that features the location’s twist on high-concept cocktails and includes a midnight champagne toast on the house. With all these amenities, Dolly Varden is sure to keep your engine stoked, giving you a momentous and momentum-ous start to the new year. Guests are also in for a rhythmic ride, courtesy of a talented DJ who’ll be spinning the wheels of this party train all night long. Additionally, groups of four or more who are interested in an extra bit of elegance to their evening can reserve seating (with or without exclusive bottle service).
The Dolly Varden name has inspired many over the years; this New Year’s Eve, treat yourself to its fine blend of vintage and contemporary culture.
