10 Reasons to Celebrate New Year’s Eve at The Castle

NYE champagne flutesWe all know that holidays can be a very hectic time.  Christmas is fast approaching and there’s tons of shopping, planning, baking and decorating to do.  If all of that feels like a chore, here’s something that doesn’t: choosing where you want to ring in the New Year!   The last day on the calendar is all about the perfect balance between sophistication and celebration, and that’s exactly what we’ve got in store for our New Year’s Eve Gala.  Here’s 10 reasons why The Tonawanda Castle will be the place to be on December 31:

  1. The building.  It is amazingly beautiful.   You may have seen our photos online, but that doesn’t quite do justice to thisgorgeous historical space.   The chandeliers, the woodwork, and the stained glass are all much more impressive when seen in person.
  2. The dinner. The Gala will feature an all-night station style dinner with a special menu created by the Castle chefs.
  3. The dance floor.  The Castle has an enormous hardwood dance floor perfect for showing off all your moves!
  4. The music.  For our New Year’s Gala, we’re going to be shaking things up with The Boneshakers.  They play bluesy jazzy rock- n-roll favorites with a bit of R&B thrown into the mix—in other words, something for everyone.
  5. The amazing appetizers.  The chefs here do a fantastic job all around, but it is in the bite sized delectables that their creativity really shines.
  6. The perks.  Hats, noisemakers and free parking!  Enjoy a fabulous night out without having to battle the traffic or crowded lots downtown.
  7. Options.  At midnight, you get your choice of a champagne toast in our ballroom where it’s nice and warm or a short walk over to Gateway Harbor to watch the ball drop and fireworks display.

  8. The balconies. Who doesn’t love a view from a balcony? And we’ve got one of the best in town.  The grand ballroom boasts an overlooking balcony where guests can catch a glimpse of the party from above.
  9. The drinks. Drink specials will be available, but they’re too good to post here!
  10. The deal.  You get all of the above for just 50 bucks a person (plus tax).  That is a great deal!  You can purchase tickets now at http://tonawandacastle.com/tonawanda-castle-events/
