Happy New Year’s Eve, Birmingham! If you’re on the search for last-minute plans to ring in the new year, look no further. Cocktail bars across downtown Birmingham are teaming up to host the Downtown Get Down, and we’ve got the details.

Get Down, Downtown

We all know downtown Birmingham is home to some of the coolest bars in the state. From underground cellars to rooftops with a view, you truly can’t go wrong.

What better place is there to ring in the start of a new year? Six bars across the area are teaming up to host the Downtown Get Down this New Year’s Eve. It kicks off at 6PM, and you’re not going to want to miss out.

The Participants

There are six participating bars, each with varying offerings including drink deals, champagne toasts at midnight, special food menus and more. Check out the lineup:

There’s no specific route, so it’s perfect for those choose-your-own-adventure types. All you do is pay $10 entry at your first location and $5 at the other five venues after that!

You’ll have plenty of time to make it to all six stops—the event kicks off at 6PM and the party doesn’t stop until 2AM.

Not Wanting to Get Down?
