New Year's Eve Celebration

Saturday, December 31, 2022

Plan for a night of celebration at The Merrill Hotel this New Year's Eve! We're throwing another grand party in our Mississippi Ballroom and you're invited for a night of food, cocktails, and live entertainment from Midwest Dueling Pianos!

Double the pianos means double the fun as we roll into 2023!

The hotel's ticketed 21+ celebrations begin in the beautiful 6th floor ballroom with live music and the Mighty Mississippi as the backdrop. Hors d’oeuvres and bites will be served from Maxwell’s On The River, as well as a cash bar, will be available throughout the night to be enjoyed as Midwest Dueling Pianos perform a unique and interactive show offering wildly entertaining music and comedy.

The New Year's Eve Celebration is open to hotel guests, visitors, and locals alike. Join us for the party as we kiss 2022 good bye and welcome in the new year!
