Midnight ball drop. Champagne toast. Party favors. If there’s one night to really do it up, it’s New Year’s Eve. And the best way to toast a new year? The luxurious way — dressing up, popping a bottle of bubbly and enjoying a memorable night out with friends and family in the Black Hills.
From the iconic Hotel Alex Johnson ball drop in Rapid City, South Dakota, to the exhilarating casino action in Deadwood, South Dakota, Liv Hospitality, owner and operator of a collection of award-winning resorts, is pulling out all the stops for kicking off 2022.
Wondering where to celebrate? Look no further. Here are five top destinations and hotels where you can spend your New Year's Eve in style in the Black Hills.
There is no party like a Cadillac Jack’s Gaming Resort party, and this year the entire resort is geared up for fun and excitement. Ring in the New Year with weekend “cash bash” promotions including a $1 million giveaway and a $15,000 poker countdown.
Experience the luxury of Cadillac Jack’s at one of these convenient onsite accommodations: SpringHill Suites by Marriott, DoubleTree by Hilton or Tru by Hilton. All three hotels offer direct views of Main Street with the beautiful Black Hills as a backdrop. This all-inclusive resort in Deadwood features five dining options, a Vegas-inspired gaming floor, outdoor patio with a fire pit, and a casino bar.
At Courtyard by Marriott in Rapid City, revelers are going to party like it’s Y2K all over again. Ring in 2022 with a house party themed event featuring live entertainment, drinking games, keg beer, a taco bar and much more. Plus, dress in your best early 2000s garb for a chance to win $1,000.
The party doesn’t have to end indoors. Step outside on the spacious patio with comfortable seating around the fire pit. Want even more?
