There is tons of stuff going on, or around, H Street for New Years. Here are the events I'm aware of so far:
(1433 H Street) offers three options for New Years. Upstairs they will have food and drink as part of their New Year's package. Enjoy all you can eat steamed shrimp, mussels, clams, crab legs from 7-9pm. After that you can enjoy munchies from 9pm-close. Open bar 7pm-1am. Complimentary champagne toast, party favors, and a dj starting at 9pm. Tickets are $60. Email argonautdc[at]gmail.com for reservations.
On the first floor from 5-8pm parents can ring in the New Year with the younger set. Free champagne toast for adults, and free sparkling cider/apple juice toast for the kids.
Once 8 o'clock chimes the downstairs converts into a neighborhood New Years Eve celebration that won't break the bank. No cover, no dress code. Reservation suggested, but not required.
