What should I expect? 

This New Year’s Eve, immerse yourself in the multi-level Inferno themed New Years Eve experience. Each floor of the Union building will be completely transformed with scenery, human mannequins, amazing light shows, costumed staff, and entertainment to complete the experience at a theater-quality level. Begin the evening as you step into Purgatory, the street level Workshop restaurant. From here, ascend into Heaven under the stars on the Rooftop, or saunter down the dark staircase to REV Ultra Lounge, aptly themed as Hell for the evening. A tasty late night food menu and 3 huge bars with over 14 bartenders will ensure you will have ample provisions to dance the night away!  The venue provides a boutique, intimate NYE experience, and offers an ambiance to fit every party-goers preferences.

What time does the party begin? 

We’re taking dinner reservations from 5pm-8pm and the Inferno party begins at 9pm.

Is this a 21+ event? 

Yes, guests must be 21+ and a valid ID is required at the door. 

Is there a dress code? 

It’s New Year’s Eve! Dress to impress! Don’t worry about freezing before you get inside, as the entrance will be heated and a coat check is available inside. 



What ticket options are offered? 

Tickets are available here. Purchase tickets ahead of time, as we’ve sold out in the past and will not have more available at the door. While the tri-level experience may feel like three unique events, one ticket gives you access to move throughout all three levels as you wish! 

If I have a reservation for dinner at Union or Workshop do I need a ticket to the Inferno NYE party?

Yes, you must purchase an Inferno party ticket even if you have a dinner reservation or dinner ticket. To ensure we have ample space for all guests who have purchased a tickets sans dinner to dance the night away, this is the best way to assure we won’t be over-booked!
