New Year’s Eve is one of the most romantic times of the year as you wait up and ring in the next year together — possibly with a kiss at midnight! The NYE events in Cincinnati for couples definitely deliver. There’s a great variety of things to do, so plan with (or surprise!) your sweetie by heading to one of these Cincinnati, Ohio New Year’s Eve events for couples.
New Year’s Eve Dueling Pianos at 16 Lots
Ashton Wolf Dueling Pianos is putting on quite the NYE show at 16 Lots Brewing Company in Mason, about 30 minutes northeast of Cincinnati. The event starts at 8:00 pm (although doors open at 7:00 pm) and goes until midnight. Tickets include unlimited beer, cider, and wine, along with heavy appetizer stations featuring food from Mad Monks Pizza. There’s also a champagne toast at midnight. It may be a good idea to plan an Uber ride home so you can drink responsibly and arrive home safe.
The Dinner Detective Interactive Murder Mystery Show
If you want a bit of an early night, cross the bridge into Covington, KY, for an interactive dinner show with The Dinner Detective. It’s a whodunit of sorts where you or your date may even be considered a suspect! This hilarious show is $60 and includes dinner where you can choose chicken, fish, or a vegetarian meal. The show runs from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, so you can have an early night or go somewhere else after the murder is solved on New Year’s Eve in Cincinnati 2021.
2022 Cincinnati New Year’s Eve Party at Gatsby’s House
Want to celebrate in style? You’ll need to ante up (tickets start at $89), but the event is well worth it. Dress up in 1920s flapper and dapper attire to enjoy casino games, a five-hour open bar, music from top Ohio DJs, and an optional bougie area for VIP ticketholders. This party takes place in multiple ballrooms at the Westin Cincinnati Hotel, so book a room and stay overnight, so you don’t have to worry about getting home safely.
If you have a fancy style and like to celebrate with your partner for New Year’s, this is one of the best NYE events in Cincinnati for couples you can attend!
