The last night of 2017 is just days away.

For some, plans have been made well in advance and the celebrations are set to unfold. For many though, New Year’s Eve seems to appear all of a sudden out of the bright lights still aglow from Christmas Day.

What are you doing New Year’s?…

Gastown will be throwing a few parties on December 31st and here’s what’s happening in the neighbourhood.

Ready to decide where to get your Auld Lang Syne on?!

NYE with Dawn Pemberton & Friends!
@Guilt & Co

Sunday December 31
Doors 7pm/Show 10pm

For New Years Eve, 2018, we have a very special night for you. We are taking our ‘This Is Not a Band’ format to the next level by featuring one of our favourite singers of all time, Ms. Dawn Pemberton. Backed by a group instrumentalists who have not yet all performed together, Dawn is going to bring the Funk and Soul to 2018 like only she can while backed by a killer band.

We’ve decided that for NYE this year, we would abstain from a high-priced ticketed event and all that one would entail. No bells and whistles, just great music and great company like any night at Guilt & Co. Admission will be a minimum donation of $15 to the band and that’s it, so come take refuge from the well-known spectacle that is NYE.
