Where to spend New Year's Eve in Tallinn?

After staying in Helsinki for 2 days, we've booked a hotel in Tallinn, bought ferry tickets and went to Tallinn. First, I want to start how and where to buy tickets to the ferry, how much they cost etc. If you do not want to pay double price for one ticket, DO NOT buy tickets at the ferry terminal, as we did 1 day before departure. There are several ferry companies: we purchased tickets from Viking Line because there were good feedbacks about them on the internet. The tickets start at ~25 euro one way and depend on the busyness of the ferry. Easiest, fastest and cheapest way to buy tickets is to book here online.The ferry was huge (Viking XPRS)! It was cruise ship that can carry up to 2500 passengers and around 230 cars. The ship offers activities and experiences for all ages. Gambling games, duty-free, cafes, bars, restaurants, conference hall, karaoke corner, live music, free wi-fi – simply various entertainments inside one ship. The ship was made up by 10 floors, where 3rd and 4th floors were for cars, 5th and 6th floors were cabins (cabin for 4 persons cost around 35 euro), 7th and 8th floor were cafes and restaurants, 9th and 10th floors were open areas.
Important info: there are only 2 daily trips from Helsinki to Tallinn and back. So be sure to check the time schedule before the trip!
Before arriving in Estonia, I've been expecting Tallinn to be 'soviet style' town, that I used to see in Baku or Moscow, with old architectures. However, I was shocked and left speechless right after I left the ship. I couldn't believe how a former Soviet state became one of the most advanced cities in the world with modern buildings, cafes, restaurants, bars etc.

For New Year's Eve celebration I'd advise you to go to Freedom square near the old town to watch fireworks. At 23:45 President of Estonia Kersti Kaljulaid had a speech and wished everyone a happy and blessed new 2018 year in front of thousands of people who gathered there in this square. After 60 s countdown, at 00:00 sharp we had the most beautiful and amazing firework shows that lasted nearly 30 minutes. And afterward, everyone went to different pubs to continue the celebration or to Market Square where live DJ entertained us until the morning.
