The Ambassador Hotel Autograph Collection is giving guests more than one reason to party this New Year’s Eve. In addition to the holiday, the boutique hotel is celebrating the 10-year milestone since transforming a 1926 bank building into the city’s only AAA Four Diamond property.

The hotel opened during the last week of 2012 and has become a Downtown Wichita destination for locals and visitors—from luxury rooms and suites to the upscale Siena Tuscan Steakhouse on the ground floor and Dockum, the speakeasy-style bar serving unique cocktails in the basement. The hotel is offering a New Year’s Eve package for a one-night stay and access to Dockum for an evening of live music and a midnight countdown.

From luxury to family fun, there are NYE events in Wichita to meet every budget and a variety of party styles. Here is your guide to what to do on New Year’s Eve; be sure to check details well in advance as many events and attractions require reservations.
