At one of the island's best beach clubs, Réveillon Taikô 2013 - the party is in its 11th edition - will feature DJs Sandy Rivera (NYC) and Ibiza-born and -bred Sebastian Gamboa.
Veuve Clicquot in the open bar and fine cuisine (local oysters, risotto, lentils for luck, mini sandwiches, fresh fruit) in the all-inclusive buffet come with the top-tier tickets; there are extra perks, such as extra bottles of champagne, for groups in the suites (camarotes).
The most affordable tickets being sold at this time (2nd lot) include the open bar only. Unlike other New Year's Eve parties in Brazil, Réveillon Taikô is offering international travelers the chance to buy tickets online, via Blueticket (who sell most tickets to other top New Year's Eve parties in Floripa as well). Find the party link under Santa Catarina, choose the ticket from the drop-down box, then click on "Other countries?" The price with the sales tax included is R$407 for women and R$858 for men.
For info and prices for suites and tickets with the all-inclusive buffet, call Taikô (55-48-3282-9714 or 55-48-3024-1099) or email them (firstname.lastname@example.org). In November, their hours might be erratic as the house is undergoing renovations for the high season, according to their blog .
