New Year's Eve in NYC: The best parties for everyone

Marquee will keep you in the partying mood with a four-hour open bar on New Year’s Provided

Dancers: Close out the year under the disco ball with a celebrity DJ setting the beat: Dress your best for former Swedish House mafioso Sebastian Ingrosso and DJ Cedric Gervais at Marquee (289 10th Ave.) with a four-hour open bar ($245+, 8 p.m.); Madison Square Garden has a double bill ofSkrillex and Diplo ($55-$150,8 p.m.); DJ Koze and Wareika headline a 42-hour set beginning at 10 p.m. on NYE at Williamsburg’s Output (74 Wythe Ave., $80-$100); DJ Joseph Capriati, with the help of liquid nitrogen fog, will keep you dancing at Space Ibiza (637 W. 50th St., $60) beginning at 3 a.m. for seven hours until the shades come up for the first sunrise of 2015.

Go-all-nighters: These are the things you can find at Webster Hall (125 E. 11th St.) on New Year’s Eve, when all four floors host a party that goes until noon on Jan. 1: circus performers, eight DJs, an open bar from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m., a 100,000-balloon drop and probably a few things no one will believe when you try to explain it to them. And you can parlay your partying into brunch thanks to a continental breakfast. Tickets start at $99

Singles: With more than 350 unattached partiers expected to pack Stitch Lounge (247 W. 37th St.) for Single and the City’s lonely hearts club bash, there’s bound to be someone who catches your eye — or at least your lips for a midnight kiss. The open bar from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. will get the party started, followed by free light bites, icebreakers, giveaways and a Champagne toast. 25+; $65 advance, $100 door

Endorphin junkies:Start 2015 off on the right foot — and then the left, and then the right, and then the left again for 4 miles — at the New York Road Runners’ Midnight Run. Warm up at the free pre-race dance party with live music starting at 10 p.m. (Then shock your system into resolution mode at the annual Coney Island Polar Dip.) Free to $65, Central Park Bandshell

Celebrity stalkers:There’s a better reason to be in Times Square than waiting cold and hungry for the ball to drop. Madame Tussauds (234 W. 42nd St.) is throwing a party with all your favorite celebrities, food and an open bar from 7 p.m. to midnight. That should give you enough time to imbibe enough to think those selfies you took with the wax figures are real. Just apply an Instagram filter and who’s to say you didn’t crash the city’s most exclusive party? Tickets start at $119, party goes until 1 a.m.

Homebodies: The best part about New Year’s on your sofa is the reasonably priced Champagne, no high heels or freezing on the curb trying to hail a cab home. So cuddle up with your smelly cat and get your remote ready, because as soon as the year ticks over the entire run of “Friends” will be available on Netflix. $7.99 a month
