If you're looking for what to do in Dallas to ring in 2022, your girls at Dallas Love List have you covered with 22 different events suitable for the best New Year's Eve party yet. Everything from bars, to hotel parties to restaurants to clubs, you're going to find your spot for New Year's Eve, presented by Alto!
New Year's Eve... AKA the rare occurrence when we aren't sneaking out of the function before midnight. Luckily we have our very own pumpkin carriage (or something like that...) to ensure safe and comfortable travels.
Alto is the safest, cleanest, and highest-quality ride-share experience that is SUPERIOR to other options. Not only can passengers keep the pre-game going with an alcoholic beverage for the road, but you can set all the NYE vibes by selecting your own music, there are complimentary mini water bottles at each seat (and let's be honest...you will need them more than ever that night), temperature control from the back seat, chargers to keep your battery life full, and trained Alto employee drivers so you can avoid any and all uncomfortable situations.

And whether you're looking for a more relaxed night or a boujee bash, we've curated 22 options - from hotels, to restaurants, to bars and clubs - and there is something for everyone. NYE is the type of night where you just might lose a glass slipper on the way out. Do not get behind the wheel, call an Alto.
