Where to Celebrate New Year’s Eve in West Chester

December 18, 2019

New Year’s Eve is one of the biggest party nights of the year—and there are plenty of ways to get in on all the fun here in West Chester. From open bar parties to swanky dance clubs, the options are endless, and many are right near your Chestnut Square apartment—which can mean making plans can be a bit stressful. If you’re looking to take the pressure out of the holiday this year, consider tapping into one of the town’s biggest selling points—its culinary scene—to sell your friends, family or date on a different type of Near Year’s celebration.

West Chester is home to dozens of award-winning restaurants, so why not wind down 2019 indulging on some mouthwatering creations? A perfect place to do just that is Mercato, only two blocks from your Chestnut Square apartment.

The upscale Italian eatery will have you sending off 2019 in style—and welcoming 2020 with just as much excitement. The restaurant features a wide range of authentic Italian dishes, all with a modern American spin to them—from cheese and meat boards to crostini and to main dishes like filled pastas and fresh fish. Splurge a bit on the holiday and try a few items to get the full taste of Mercato!

The décor at the restaurant is just as enticing as the menus. Mercato goes all out for the holidays—with garland, lights, candles and more dressing up the already romantic dining rooms (making Mercato a great choice if you’re dining out with your other half this holiday). Scrubbed wooden tables and dark wood floors and paneled walls set the cozy, cheerful atmosphere. If you’re heading out with a whole crew, consider reserving the newly finished wine cellar, which can accommodate 10-50 diners for an outing that will turn into a night to remember.

Happy New Year’s!
