Driftwood Kitchen New Year’s Eve Bash

Driftwood Kitchen, together with Tightrope Entertainment, will be ringing in 2015 with an exclusive New Year’s Eve bash in Laguna Beach. The celebration will take place at the beautiful oceanfront venue nestled up against the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean. The main dining space boasts a large open-air patio with breathtaking views and an enchanting ambiance, which together create an unparalleled experience.

Transforming the restaurant into an open space performance venue, guests will be transported into a Great Gatsby-like New Year’s party. One of Laguna’s favorite homegrown bands Common Sense will perform live, keeping the energy flowing into the new year. Nick-I Hernandez and his band, Common Sense, have been making waves in the Southern California music scene since the early ‘90s.

General Admission tickets are currently available for $50 and VIP tickets are available for $95. VIP tickets grant early access starting at 9 p.m. and exclusive access to the second floor Stateroom Lounge. In addition, from 9 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. VIPs will get a special guest performance from the highly talented Addie Hamilton. Complimentary gourmet desserts will also be available to VIPs. Tickets are required when doors open for General Admission starting at 9:30 p.m., with Common Sense taking to the stage at 10 p.m. All ticket sales are limited and may be purchased online by visiting:
