They'll be DJs all night and live entertainment as well, so you can enjoy one last hurrah before the year ends. 

The original Johnny's was a late-night, good-time Carlton classic. Its glowing neon sign drew musicians, artists, gangsters, and students who mingled at all hours, playing pool and eating Coletta and lasagne in a place where the party never ended. It wasn't always savoury, but it was never dull. With our new rooftop incarnation of Johnny's, we've retained the sense of fun but swapped the notorious pool hall vibe and clouds of cigarette smoke for amazing 360-degree views over Carlton and the sophisticated ambience of a rooftop party in Rome. Johnny's serves classic and house cocktails, local and imported beer on tap, easy-drinking wines, and a casual list of bar food's greatest hits, from grilled meat and burgers to gelato and cheese. Add neon, terrazzo, and great tunes, and it's classic good times for right now. Bring your friends. The good-time essence of Johnny's lives on.

How To Stay Safe When It's Time to Celebrate

Mind your limits.

Alcohol is almost unavoidable on New Year's Eve. Even if you and your friends don't partake, you'll likely encounter intoxicated revellers throughout your night.

If you are drinking alcohol, keep in mind your limits. "Try not to drink too much, too quickly," says Dr. Edelstein. "The last place you want to be on New Year's Eve is in the emergency department." To help pace yourself, alternate alcohol intake with water or other non-alcoholic options. Also, never leave your beverage unattended. And finally, remember: It only takes 10 minutes for alcohol to reach your brain.

Celebrate safely.

Champagne is a New Year's Eve staple. But according to one study, champagne corks can reach speeds up to 50 miles per hour. (That's enough to shatter glass.) So don't forget that corks should be popped away from guests or anything of value. And use the 45 degrees rule of thumb: It's the ideal temperature to avoid spontaneous combustion and the ideal angle to uncork bottles.

Plan accordingly.

If you're going to a party or heading to a public event, make plans to arrive and leave with a group. A lot can happen on New Year's Eve, and you want to ensure you, your friends and your family are safe. Be sure to share your plans for the night and communicate your whereabouts if plans change.

To this end, pack a charger for your phone — a portable one may be especially helpful if you can't find an outlet. Be aware of your surroundings; if you get separated from your group, you will want to know where you are, where you're going and where you're spending the night.

 You don't want to end up in the ED on New Year's Eve. 

— Steve R. Edelstein, MD

A filling dinner is another way to prepare for a long New Year's Eve night. A wholesome dinner can not only help to absorb some of the alcohol you might indulge in, but it will also help you avoid nibbling on bar snacks.

 Avoid driving if possible.

Whether you're a passenger or driver, the roads are particularly dangerous on New Year's Eve. Help everyone stay safe by refusing to drink and drive, and don't let anyone around you drive under the influence of alcohol or other intoxicating substances.

If you are at a friend's house for New Year's Eve, ask to spend the night or book a room within walking distance of your festivities to avoid potential drunk drivers and the pre-existing dangers of driving in winter conditions at night.
