Nelly, and everyone else we saw at Tampa Edition’s New Year’s Eve party

Everyone kept their clothes on, but Nelly got it hot on the Tampa Edition rooftop for a New Year’s Eve party at the city’s only five-star hotel. To kick off the evening, Chef John Fraser’s team at the Edition’s Lilac restaurant welcomed diners for a four-course dinner before sending them upstairs to Azure for a desert course and open bar, all while the venue’s Arts and Punch rooms played host to revelers ready to go well past midnight.

A rep for the hotel told Creative Loafing Tampa that the only people in attendance were hotel guests, residence plus guests of residents, and that the Edition hosted just 250 for the rooftop concert and 200 in the Arts Club and Punch Room.
