The creators of the Halloween and New Years Eve parties at the Hilton Costa Mesa, Atrium Hotel and Irvine Marriott, the Sex and the City party at the St. Regis present OC`s biggest New Year`s Eve celebration.

WEDNESDAY - December 31, 2008 join us and 5,000 of our friends as we transform the Hilton Costa Mesa into Orange County`s most exclusive and decadent New Year's Eve Celebration ever!

This has been the #1 New Year's Eve Celebration in Orange County for the past 10 years. Having recenlty acquired OCNYE, the combination of the two parties will make NYEOC 2009 the biggest party to come to Orange County since our party in 2004 at the Anaheim Convention Cetner.

Seven different ballrooms, TWO levels (one level is exclusively VIP) and every type of music imaginable. You must be 21 or older to attend this party and proper attire is required.

New Years Eve OC (NYEOC) is the celebration for the classy, upscale people of Southern California. One of the best things about a Hotel Party on New Years Eve is that you can party all you want and go to your room when the party is over.  You don't worry about drinking and driving or even worse starting your year off with a DUI.

NYEOC features music Video DJs in the main ballroom and a video countdown on 12 foot video screens. Beauty and Fashion shows from various salons and designers will take place between 9pm and 10pm.

In the House room, the Focus DJs and DJ Von-UKuf will take full control of your body, mind and soul (that's what they told us) with some of the best House, Electro and Trance music.

If you find yourself feeling nostalgic, you can visit the Retro Room where DJs will play 70's, 80's and 90's rock, hip-hop and hits from days gone by.  This will bring back memories of the "good ol days" as you prepare to for some "great new days"

There's two ultra lounges, fully furnished with RED and WHITE lounge furniture.  A Play-for-fun casino featuring Blackjack, Roulette, Craps and other fun casino games

The creators of OCNYE had a great idea when it came to having live bands perform on New Years.  However, challenges with venues and weather, prevented them from realizing their full potential.  We acquired OCNYE in May 2008 and are excited to present NYE Jams.  The Ultimate LIVE Entertainment Lounge.  By bringing the OCNYE party indoors, in a 20,000 sq. ft. convention space we've added another mega-NYE party within the NYEOC party.

is the LIVE Entertainment Lounge where 10 different LIVE performances will entertain over 2,000 fans and supporters.  NYE Jams features some of the best new bands and solo artists in America.  Plus the first 2,500 people to arrive will get a NYE Jams compilation CD.  This priceless keepsake is something you can use after NYEOC to remember the party of the year.
