Hottest Gay New Years’ Eve 2012 Parties

We have been getting hundreds of messages and emails regarding what is going on this year for New Years Eve to bring on the end of time.  Well ok, 2012 but same thing!  Should we not make this the party event of the decade?  There is lot’s going on this year for New Years’ Eve including the annual Masterbeat party in LA which is our pick this time around.

We have selected Masterbeat’s party this year as our events of choice because they are in walking distance on the main night of mayhem and are not downtown at the Mayan anymore which was a hassle the past few years. Who wants to drive all over LA in a cab from Hollywood… not me! This year though the parties will be located in Hollywood and we are stoked!
December 31 – New Years Eve
The End of The World at Hollywood Palladium 6215 W. Sunset from 9pm to 5am
Masterbeat is thrilled to return to the incredible Hollywood Palladium (it has been since 2006) for our main event and the only place to be as the world comes to an end. Home to the world’s largest New Year’s Eve events of over 4000 people for Masterbeat NYE 2005 and 2006, the Hollywood Palladium has hosted the Grammy’s, the Frank Sinatra orchestra, Lawrence Welk show and almost every major rock band in the world as a concert venue. The Masterbeat 2006 New Year’s Eve event was the last event held at the Palladium before it was closed and then purchased by LiveNation for a major renovation, and now the venue hosts concerts and incredible super events to the world’s best DJ’s. Now restored to it’s original glory, Masterbeat will once again transform this one of a kind venue into LA’s own super-club, with the same thundering 4 point line array sound system we custom installed in 2005 and 2006, a full motion lighting and truss system, LED walls and projections, and a few special surprises.
The legendary duo of Rosabel return for their 3rd year as the headlining DJ’s for our main event.
First Dance starting December 31 and on until the New Year January 1st. – Arena Cafe 6655 Santa Monica Blvd from 4am until Noon.
It’s just a few blocks away… and the party will keep on going at one of LA’s hottest afterhours… Arena Cafe. We’re installing an all new sound system just for Masterbeat 2012… and the beats of everyone’s favorite afterhours DJ, Paulo.
Dancing until noon on New Year’s Day – this is the way to ring in the New Year.
Recovery-January 1 at Avalon Hollywood (you know the place that hosts Tigerheat on Thursday nights normally) located at 1735 Vine St or Hollywood and Vine area from 9pm until 6am.
Finally back in the lineup, our world famous closing party returns to Masterbeat 2012 – Recovery at Avalon.
DJ Brett Henrichsen made this event famous in 2007 and 2008, and is excited to return to man the turntables all night and take you on a musical journey from nightfall to dawn on the night of New Year’s Day at one of LA’s hottest clubs.
Monday is an official holiday, so don’t miss your chance to “recover” from the weekend and get one last dance in to celebrate 2012, and the fact that the world (hopefully) still exists.

Deborah Cox and DJ Tracy Young at Mansion South Beach
The next best thing or may be even better who knows… is Deborah Cox and DJ Tracy Young. Yes, having Deborah Cox singing in the New Years’ sounds better than just about anything I know!!! This party will also feature DJ Kidd Madonny for Genesis IX at the Mansion in South Beach, Miami, FL. If only we could be on the east and west coasts at the same time!!
