It’s New Year’s Eve in Portland, and You Have No Idea Where to Go? Here Are 5 Ideas You May Want to Pick Up

Now when Thanksgiving is over, New Year’s is your next big celebration to think about, and plan. Not many people have it all figured out at the end of the year which poses for a perfect reason one reflects, thinks their actions through, solidifies their emotions, re-thinks their decisions and choices in the previous 12 months. But not everything about New Year’s has to be so difficult to process – some of it (or at least most of it) should be about having fun, cheering to everything great that happened and opening yourself up for the novelty and excitement of all things new. And, if you get to celebrate everything with those you love – even better!

If you live in Portland or are just passing by, here are some great options to say goodbye to 2018 as you enjoy your champagne toasts, dance parties, tasty dinners, and a fantastic time!

NOTE: None of these are paid ads, they are just best Portland picks. Plus, Radio Cab circled the city around to see what’s happening in the streets, where the taxi can and cannot go through, etc. – so these are definitely the best ones. You’ll have a fabulous time, always a taxi nearby, you’ll be close to home – so what’s there not to like! Plus, if you want to make things even better, you can always apply for Radio Cab Specials and get superb service, immediately!


If you are looking to welcome 2019 in a more intimate atmosphere, Verdigris is the place to be. Still, the fact your evening is intimate won’t make it boring or any less indulgent than a regular party-fest. In fact, the cozy, rustic Verdigris could be everything you are looking forward to getting out of your New Year’s celebration – apart from the beautiful atmosphere, and you’ll be served a five-course dinner of Northwestern cooking with a French touch. The price ranges from $72 to $83, but it mostly depends on the entree chosen. It’s great that each course comes with options that include half a Maine lobster with ravioli, crab and cauliflower cocktail, Mary’s farm chicken for two, and potato gnocchi with chanterelles and mozzarella.

If you are interested in this offer, call to arrange a seat as reservations will not be taken online.

Eatery at the Grant House

Well, well, if you are celebrating your New Year’s Eve at the super elegant Eatery at the Grant House, you definitely won’t stay hungry! With a four-course dinner and every course coming with two to three options such as cacio e pepe, celery root bisque, oysters, foie gras parfait, and chocolate hazelnut torte, you’ll get to enjoy every second of it. Dinner will be $75 + beverage pairings for $30 or $50. But, the New Year’s reservation Eatery at the Grant House isn’t just about tasty food! You get tickets to the Coast to Coast party from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., with raffle prizes, live music, snacks, and dessert as well as a champagne toast on both midnight EST and PST. If you are not up for dinner, you can skip it and party for $30 only. After the celebration is over, in case you hadn’t already booked a ride, don’t bother yourself with questions like How to get a taxi near my location? or Where to find a taxi at New Year’s? … Radio Cab is your go-to!
