Most Expensive New Year's Eve 2013 Parties in Miami
We got to say, we are sort of disappointed with LIV. If there is one nightclub the personifies Miami excess, it's LIV. The fact that it's ranked so low on this list is unacceptable. So what's the "deal" at the Fontainebleau hotspot? Well, for $15,000 you can get a table right in front on the stage as Calvin Harris DJs, but $18,000 will get you the Magnum Sky Suite. Having been to LIV, we've got to say, being in front of the stage sort of trumps the sky suites -- but if privacy is of concern, we guess it's worth the price. What does $18,000 get you? Admission for 18 people, one magnum bottle of Belvedere and and three bottles of Dom Perignon Luminous -- now that's more like it.
Now, before you balk at the $20,000 price tag to catch Aussie DJ duo Nervo, that gets 75 people in. Yes, 75 people! When you calculate that it comes out to about $267 a person. Not bad! There is also a four-hour premium open bar from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., so you technically don't have to buy any bottles if you don't want to; just bring a lot of singles to tip the bartenders. But if you do want bottle service, the Private Rum Bar Room package includes a staffed private room. However, if sharing a room with 75 people is too much, the true VIP package is $15,000 and includes VIP access for 30 guests and seven bottles each of Belvedere and Moët champagne.
