If you’ll be playing this New Year’s Eve, play it safe and stay close to your local BBC.

New Year’s Eve is almost here. Gotta love a holiday that’s all about “out-with-the-old/in-with-new.” It’s a great night to go out and have some fun, and wrap up the holiday season on a high note. It’s also a night when people who might not typically go out for cocktails like to join the festivities, hence the “Amateur Night” moniker that New Year’s Eve has earned over the years.

We hope you’ll plan on joining the crew at your local BBC to toast the New Year. And we really hope you’ll play it safe. Why not consider making an actual night of it and grabbing a room nearby? With this in mind, we did a little web surfing and came up with some options.

Full disclosure! These are not hotel reviews – we haven’t even stayed at most of them – they just happen to be within walking distance or, in most cases, a quick cab ride away from a BBC. All were showing availability for New Year’s Eve when we researched them on December 20th. So consider these suggestions, please; not carved-in-stone hardcore research.

If you don’t see your local BBC listed, it’s because we couldn’t find a hotel within two-ish miles of the pub or those nearby appear to be sold out. Let us know if you have hot tip for us.
