Unless you’ve elected to spend the night rubbing sweaty elbows at a South Beach nightclub, mind-numbing bangers should have no part in your celebration. (Sorry, Miley.)

For help setting the laid-back mood you’re after, we turned to local DJ Mr. Pauer (a regular at The Stage and Grand Central) — think sunset rooftop party or lazy afternoon by the pool. Find your groove before midnight.
