I'd like to host an party, but I have noise-adverse neighbors who go to bed early. How do I gently encourage guests to leave when it gets late?

I don't want to upset my neighbors or be rude to my guests. Are there (polite) signals I can send that let my guests know when it's time to leave?

If your neighbors are still being party poopers, I say SUCK IT UP AND LET ME PARTY. JUST BECAUSE YOU'RE OLD DOESNT MEAN YOU CAN RUIN MY FUN BY GOING TO BED EARLY.

I love this question because this happens at so many of our events. The best way to encourage guests to leave an event is to close the bar and cut the music. When guests see the band/dj or bartenders breaking down their area, they get the hint.

Do like we do and go around and let the neighbors know that you are having the party and just wanted to let them know in advance. If you have not been a problem in the past with loud parties I don't think they will mind. Also extend and invitation to them and even if they don't come just remind your guest that you are mindful of all the neighbors when it gets late and you would not want to ruin any of your guests relationships with theirs. I am sure you will have a wonderful party.

Have plenty of drinks and food early on, then let it run out around the time you need people to leave. When there are no more drinks to be had, people tend to head out.

You could also invite your neighbors!
