New Year’s Eve 2018 at Studio 3

The wildest New Year’s Party in Newport just got even wilder.

For the 6th year and running Studio 3 has been the epicenter of New Year’s Eve in Newport.  Each year the room has sold out before ten pm.  Watch the ball drop live on one of three ten by ten foot high definition projection screens while at the same time experiencing a state-of-the-art lighting show and explosion technology that offers a one of a kind New Year’s countdown.

The Sound     

DJ Nook will be your host and aside from being Rhode Island’s favorite DJ, he will be putting together a special New Year’s Eve set that will blow minds and ears.

The Show

As always, we will be screening the ball dropping live in Times Square. However, this year we have expanded our screen projection to 30 feet which allows better viewing from more locations as well as just looking awesome.  Of course, with all the explosions and special effects, you may be a tad distracted.  *All explosives will be using Co2 technology and meet current fire code standards.  

The Crowd

Generally, the crowd is a mix of twenty-somethings to mid-thirties with a handful of locals, college students and the industry crowd.  As always, the code is “dress to impress.”


Online pre-sale tickets have sold out but guests can still pay the cover charge at the door upon arrival.  Space is limited so we strongly recommend being here as early as possible to ensure admission.  The door charge will be between $25 and $30.  Doors open at 9 pm.
