We are very pleased to announce for the fourth year in a row, Mother's Federal Hill Grill is teaming up with Lindy Promotions to bring you Baltimore's best New Year's Eve party!
The Hyatt Regency Baltimore is one of Baltimore's premier hotel properties, conveniently located in the heart of downtown Baltimore's Inner Harbor and in close proximity to M&T Bank Stadium, the Baltimore Aquarium, Camden Yards and The Maryland Science Center.
With a ratio of one bartender for every 75 guests and 1 buffet station for every 200 guests, you won't spend your New Year's Eve waiting in lines. Capacity is limited to a very comfortable number. The event will attract a mid 20's to late 30's crowd, but everyone is welcome and expect a diverse crowd, both ethnically and age-wise. We also attract an even mix of singles and couples. With 5 party areas, the Downtown Countdown will have something for everyone!
