Ring in 2019 with the best view in the city! For the first time ever, Cookbook Bar and Café is hosting a Very Austin New Year’s Eve, which will take place in the rooftop garden of Austin’s new Central Library, named one of TIME Magazine’s 2018 World’s 100 Greatest Places.

From the library rooftop, guests will be able to take in the Auditorium Shores fireworks show from the very front row. Complete with live sets from Walker Lukens and DJ Son Fjord, food from your favorite Austin restaurants and an open bar, the night is guaranteed to be unforgettable.  

Festivities begin at 9 p.m. on Monday, December 31, and guests can welcome the new year with open arms on the rooftop. Walker Lukens, Austin-based songwriter known as one of the best songwriters in Texas, will perform from 10-11 p.m. The set will be followed by a midnight toast and rooftop view overlooking Auditorium Shores’ Fireworks show.

Other festivities include a photo booth and raffle contest and tunes from DJ Son Fjord to ring in the New Year.

With a $150 General Admission ticket, guests will enjoy a limited open bar (beer, wine, & a signature New Year’s Eve cocktail) and heavy apps & late-night snacks from ELM Restaurant Group concepts including Cookbook, Irene’s, 24 Diner and Italic.

VIP Packages are $400 per couple and include a full open bar and a VIP area with a private bar, a bottle of sparkling wine at midnight and an early arrival at 8:30 p.m. with champagne and appetizers.

Celebrate New Year’s Eve with great friends, delicious food and one of the most memorable views in Austin!
