New Bohemia NYE at the Mint is back at the beautiful Mint for Year 3, for people looking for something (truly) special on this too easily over hyped party night.

Co-created by the Vau de Vire Society & Opel Productions, New Bohemia is now in our 6th year, (our first 3 were at the Armory).  What we do inside the Mint – there’s nothing like it anywhere.

It’s a world like no other.

Where’s the countdowns happening? With no one room to fit everyone, we have many options to count it down together!
Join the MIDNIGHT COUNTDOWN downstairs in the Rave Cave (the big dance floor in the basement) , or upstairs in the ‘Da Klub’ (big dance floor on north end of Mint) or the Carnival Live room (Southeast corner overlooking 5th & Mission).

On ‘The Mint’

The Mint, built in 1874, also known affectionately as The Granite Lady, is one of the few that survived the great 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Located in the heart of the city at 5th and Mission, you’ve seen it from the outside many, many times. Have you seen the inside? Few have.
