New Year’s Eve is one of the most celebrated days of the year. With champagne toasts, exquisite dinners and entertainment as the focus for the night, we’ve created a guide for ringing in 2018 on Denver’s most vibrant and dazzling block, Larimer Square.

The trendy hair design and makeup bar specializes in blowouts, makeup and fun updos and braids, which makes it the perfect spot to go before a fun New Year’s Eve night out on Larimer Square.
