We’ll have live entertainment all night, dancing, plenty of bars and the finest crowd in the Northwest to welcome in 2013!

The Venue: Grand Hyatt

Roving Entertainment

No Bonza Bash is complete without a selection of roving live entertainment as well as characteristic elements that make a Bonza Bash such a special night. Look for our roving artisans, artists and the eclectic to add spice, and soothing sophistication to your New Year’s party! Watch for more details as we announce complimentary massages, caricatures, and other fun surprises to help make your night memorable!

Dress Code

As with all Bonza Bashes, dress to impress. While this is a “black tie” event, some guests may prefer to wear semi-formal cocktail attire. Please be aware that most people will be in tuxedos, suits, gowns and cocktail dresses. We wish to remind guests that jeans, shirts without a collar and/or sneakers are all inappropriate for an event of this nature, and will be expressly forbidden. Regrettably we must decline entry to a very small number of guests for this reason each year, so please ensure you don’t become a statistic!

We get so few opportunities to dress to the nines in Seattle, so take advantage of our deals and dazzle the night away in your finest!

On-Night Logistics

Doors open at 8:30pm for GA. 8:00pm for our VIP guests.

The Venue: Grand Hyatt Seattle

At Bonza Bash we like to mix it up. We’ve held events at the Seattle Aquarium, The Space Needle, EMP, Fremont Studios and more. This time we’re mixing it up a little and taking over one of Seattle’s swankiest hotels, the Grand Hyatt Seattle.
