LAS VEGAS – Located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, the Plaza Hotel & Casino will again celebrate New Year’s Eve with a full evening of celebrations in classic Las Vegas style, complete with a delicious dinner at Oscar’s, great entertainment, complimentary champagne toasts, and downtown’s only live fireworks show at midnight on Saturday, Dec. 31 with a new aerial display.

This year, the Plaza enhanced its fireworks show with a never-before-seen aerial presentation by Fantasy Drone Shows beginning with 150 drones illuminating the sky with a countdown to the fireworks at midnight. Then, staged by Pyrotek Special Effects from multiple locations on the towers’ roofs, the Plaza’s annual New Year’s Eve fireworks display will be a spectacular show for people downtown and visible for miles. A dazzling drone display will complement the fireworks that light up the sky. (A portion of Main Street in front of the Plaza will be closed during the fireworks and drone show.)

The Plaza will offer an exclusive rooftop viewing party of the fireworks as part of its NYE 2023 Room Package. Open only to hotel guests, the all-ages party will take place at the Pool on the Plaza. The room package also includes a $50 food and beverage credit for use during the stay (3-night minimum) and complimentary early check-in and late check out (based on availability). Book online.

Before the fireworks, Oscar’s Steakhouse will offer a special three-course meal in addition to the regular steak and seafood menu. Restaurant diners will enjoy a complimentary champagne toast at midnight while watching the fireworks show from under the dining room’s iconic glass dome. Reservations are recommended and can be made online or by calling 702-387-7227.

At 8 p.m. on Dec. 31 in the Plaza showroom, comedian Doug Stanhope, selected by Variety and the Hollywood Reporter as one of the “Top Ten Comics to Watch,” will continue his tradition of ending the year with a special New Year’s Eve performance. General admission tickets for the 21 and over show are available at

The Sand Dollar Downtown will give 2022 a proper send-off with live music and hand-crafted cocktails all night long. After the fireworks, the classic rock band, The Shmarties will headline the after-party. 

After a complimentary champagne toast on the casino floor when the clock strikes midnight, the Plaza’s casino will offer a special New Year’s Day 10X Multiplier for a maximum of 25,000 points until 2 a.m. on Jan. 1. (Promotion excludes video poker; see Plaza Rewards for complete rules and details.)
