The Ball 2016 - The Nation's Biggest Matzo Ball Event for the past 20 years!

For the past 22 years, we've sponsored the The Ball, the nation's biggest matzo ball event.

Our NYC party is so big that we've often held it at 4 or 5 venues at the same time and offered free limo service for party-hopping between venues such as LavoPHD RooftopTAO Downtown LoungeMarquee and The Park

But - we've sometimes found it difficult to create the type of atmosphere that we want to provide for you at some of these venues - one where it's easy to meet people and free from hassles - over-priced drinks, people bumping into you constantly, too dark, too loud, crazy security guys yelling at you, etc. Ugh!

The Ball 2016: More Fun, More Affordable
and Easier to Meet New People!

For this year's Ball, we're going back to our roots and the days when we held the event at one enormous venue like The Palladium, Tunnel and Webster Hall. And we're focused on bringing you an event with great music and dancing (3 DJs) but also one that is more funmore affordablehassle-free and easier to meet new people!

After all, isn't that the purpose of this event?

Here's what to expect when you purchase your "Jewniversal Pass" or Jewniversal Plus Pass (which also admits you to The Ball, Part II on Dec 25):

  • Our event will encompass over ALL of 230 Fifth - the two massive indoor Penthouses, the Hard Bar Lounge (also indoors) and the biggest rooftop in New  York - complete with Winter Igloo Party Tents (see below)!
  • Seven elevators will whisk you to the top floor Penthouses, with incredible views of the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building and much of Manhattan.

  • We'll have 3 DJs and 2 dance floors. There will be great music and an incredible vibe but we'll also work to ensure that the music will allow for great conversation, as well.
  • We're converting 230 Fifth's "Hard Bar" room into a lounge for conversation and connections all night long. We'll also have lounge furniture throughout the venue so that you can chill from time-to-time - it's an 8 hour party! - even without purchasing bottle service.
  • DRINK SPECIALS ALL NIGHT LONG$7 beer, $8 wine, $10 well drinks. No more $17 glasses of wine :) Even our coat check will be affordable ($2).
  • We'll have use of 230 Fifth's best-in-NYC, partially heated, rooftop. We've had some warm December 24s in the past, but even if it's cool, there are heat lamps, hot drinks, and complimentary warm robes

  • PLUS, on the rooftop, we'll also have fully-enclosed Winter Igloo Party Tents!

  • Full kitchen: For the first time at The Ball, we'll have a full kitchen available for you! 
Then, join us the next night (December 25) for our traditional "The Ball, Part II AfterParty" at PH-D Penthouse at the Dream Downtown Hotel.
