New Year's Eve at French Lick Resort

We’ve got two big parties planned for our two grand hotels. Our party at the French Lick Springs Hotel is so big that we’ll use two ballrooms and debut our brand new event space. We’ll throw our 2014 going-away at the West Baden Hotel under the grand atrium as our guests have come to enjoy each year. We always look forward to hosting our yearly NYE revelers and welcoming new friends to help us ring in another year!
