If there's something about ringing in the new year that most people love, it's the thought of starting the new year with a clean slate, making resolutions that we never end up fulfilling and making more regretful decisions in the new year — oh, and the New Year's Eve parties.
In light of the impending end of the year, we've rounded up a list of some of the best New Year's Eve parties you can attend to end the year with a bang and ring in the new year (before making more regretful decisions).
