There are plentiful options for ringing in the new year in downtown Oshawa. From dancing to live music to fine dining, there’s a celebration suited for every style.
Why hunt down pricey transportation to a Toronto club when there are several bars hosting exciting New Year’s parties close to home? Durham Region’s largest New Years Eve party is held at The Junction Nightclub.

Hit the dance floor at The Junction, 104 King St. E.

The club will be jumping and tickets include a champagne toast and favours. Last year’s party was sold out, so owners are asking you to avoid disappointment and buy your $15 tickets as soon as possible.
If live music is more your thing, there are two bars promoting exciting stage shows on January 31. The Thirsty Monk Gastropub on Celina Street will have live music by Oshawa’s own The Stables, Anthony Howell and the 407’s.
The Thirsty Monk Gastropub is located at 21 Celina St. in Oshawa.

The lively pub will be serving complimentary champagne and a late night buffet. Party goers will get all this for $20 in advance or $25 at the door.
The Green Bottle Music Bar & Grill will also be throwing a musical New Years Eve party featuring Canada’s most popular Kiss tribute band, Destroyer.
Rock the night away with cover bands at The Green Bottle, 145 King St. W.

The opening act will also get people rocking with AC/DC tribute band, No Guff taking the stage and a special appearance by local band, Rukus. “Tickets are only $20 in advance, which include a hot and cold buffet all night, champage for everyone at midnight and an amazing show with pro sound and lighting,” says Roger Wadhwa about this rock and roll event which includes party favors and prize giveaways all night. His best advice? “Dress to party till 3 a.m.”
If your prefer the finer things in life, the Royal McLaughlin Gallery is the place to be this New Years Eve. Take the opportunity to view the William Ronald: The Central Image Paintings exhibit, on until January 9.
Celebrate with art at the RMG, 72 Queen St.

A member of the Painters Eleven, Ontario’s first abstract painting collective, Ronald’s work has been on display at the gallery a handful of times before, but this exhibit focuses in on an important era (the mid 1950s to mid 1960s) in his career when his style dramatically evolved due to living and working in New York. The Gallery website says this is, “an exhibit not to be missed, The Central Image Paintings will provide insight into the work of one of Canada’s most significant artists on the international stage.”
The new restaurant with the RMG, Arthur’s on the 4th, has a special New Years Eve menu set for the magical night.
Arthur's on the 4th is open inside the RMG on Queen St.

Some items to savour include petit filet tenderloin with an oxtail confit, roasted garlic mashed potatoes and sauteed vegetables. A night of fine dining might be just the way to ring in the new year, but no matter what style of celebrating you have in mind, downtown Oshawa is certain to have an event to fit the bill.
