Leave 2013 in the dust with fancy eats, open bars, and your first hangover of 2014.

And by hangover, we mean ringing in your ears from world-class DJs and enough blinged-out bashers to make even LeBron do a double-take.

On that note, a sweatband might not be the worst idea.

Lounge Into the New Year:
dbBistro Moderne
Blow it up with a five-course tasting menu, champagne, ball drop, and DJ. Or lounge it with the raw bar, charcuterie, and oh, another DJ.
5p-3a. 225 Biscayne Blvd. Way, Downtown (305-421-8800).
$75 and $195 here

Courtside:
Hyde Lounge
Only headliner Pitbull has better seats than those in this exclusive, 250-baller spot at court level.
8p. Hyde Lounge at the AAA, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Downtown (855-777-4933).
$150-3,500 here

For the Rock Stars: Delano South Beach

$200-700 here.

Now pass the bottle of pain reliever.
