Comal | 2020 Shattuck Ave. | $45 per person | Buy tickets here

This New Year's Eve, Comal will once again clear out the tables, turn up the volume on their Meyer sound system and transform into a dancehall. Doors will open at 9pm and longtime Bay Area DJ Jose Ruiz (KPFA, KPOO) will spin his infectious mix of Latin and funk into the wee hours. A steady stream of antojitos (little snacks) will flow throughout the night, with an emphasis on Oaxacan-style street snacks like quesadillas, de eses and flautas. Matt Campbell, Comal's lead bartender will be twisting up an original NYE cocktail, along with Comal's current list of craft cocktails, draft beer, wine and extensive selection of tequila and mezcal. All food offerings are included in the $45 ticket purchase.

Jupiter | 2181 Shattuck Ave. | FREE

Come say farewell to the old funky smelly year and ring in the shiny New Year at Jupiter, with party favors and a champagne toast, all to the grooving sounds of Oaklands own Bandulu!  Actually making their Jup debut, it was in the East wing of Berkeley's historic Cloyne Court Hotel and Casino where Bandulu founding members, David and Alan, discovered their affinity for golden-era Funk, Soul, and Reggae music. Some years later in Oakland, California, David and Alan re-connected with some old friends, stumbled upon some new friends, and the eclectic funk group Bandulu was officially born. Come see the last of 2014 and the beginning of 2015 with your peeps at Jupiter!
