Palm Tree NYE

New Year’s Eve is one of those nights where the music, people and destinations are all equally hot. Palm Tree NYE was the most talked-about bash of the new year, drawing celebrity crowds of the highest caliber from across the globe.

Darren Dzienciol has several stakes in the hospitality industry. His history of parties, pop-ups and planning the next cutting-edge affairs distinguishes him as a true revolutionary. With his concepts integrated into internationally-broadcasted events like Coachella, the SuperBowl and Cannes Film Festival, his expertise is ever-evolving and cements his position as a leading figure in nightlife and entertainment hosting.

St. Barths, or Bais de Saint Jean in Saint Barthelemy, is a popular Caribbean party hotspot year-round — and as a nightlife connoisseur, Dzienciol capitalized on this tropical draw for the first party of the year.


The Welcome Party 2023 Deserves: Palm Tree NYE

The Palm Tree NYE Party went down at Gyp Sea Club, hosted in partnership with Authentic Brands Group and Uncommon Entertainment. This “Bohemian Beach Club” rests on the edge of the island, where its guests enjoyed Don Julio 1942 — the official party sponsor of the night — and the pleasure of some successful, star-studded company as the clock struck midnight.

Several DJ acts moved the night along. Norwegian DJ Kygo blessed the beach with an EDM set throughout the night. Chantel Jeffries, famous for her musical talent and impressive roster of celebrity exes, spun a midnight set to welcome the new year. 

The DJ booth was a tropical paradise, tucked behind lush greenery and suspended above the ground just so. Each outfit, from sheer mesh getups to ravishing and revealing cutout dresses and breezy white sets, truly capitalizes on the casual upscale vibe of the night.

Many celeb guests were rumored to pre-party on yachts in Caribbean waters and continued enjoying the festivities well into the next day.
