Today we give you THE BEST TIPS to spend your new years in style. Comment this post saying wich parties are you planning on going and if you do recommend them.
8 Northumberland Avenue, London, WC2N 5BY
You and your guests will get caught up in the magic and mystery of a masquerade ball as soon as you enter the beautiful Ballroom for an authentic ‘Venetian Carnevale’. The elegant interior will wow guests as you take in the night of festivities.
Just before midnight, you’ll get invited to join the crowd at the river end of Northumberland Avenue and watch the truly amazing London Eye Fireworks. When you return to the party you will be greeted with a glass of Champagne to toast the New Year and a selection of breakfast rolls to ensure you have enough energy to dance away the night.
Secret London location
A dazzling, clandestine pop-up cocktail bar with a 1920s flavour in a secret retreat lit entirely by candles, from the people that bring you The New Sheridan Club. Shimmy to live swing from Benoit Villefon & His Orchestra and DJs spinning all manner of rags and Dixie shuffles, while their expert bar offers seasonal cocktails and first-rate bar food. It really is the closest thing you’ll find to an authentic Jazz Age experience.
Westbourne Studios, 242 Acklam Road, London, W10 5JJ
Swiss DJ powerhouse Luciano’s Cadenza Records is teaming up with the recently relaunched Westbourne Studios this New Year’s Eve for a night of sophisticated house and masquerade fun. Although the man himself won’t be around to get on the decks, Cadenza is well represented by deep house producer Argy (who smashed Westbourne during Carnival earlier this year) and Andrea Oliva, as well as Holic Trax resident DJ Tomoki Tamura.
Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, London, EC2A 3PQ
Fancy something a little different from beats, bleep, bass and bog-standard beer this New Year’s Eve? Then saunter over to Shoreditch’s Village Underground for a night of jaw-dropping acrobatics, corseted courtesans and masked villains running amok, cabaret music, speciality cocktails and heaps of vaudeville vibes, courtesy of the Belle Époque crew. They’ll be transforming Village Underground into a fantastical world of crazy costumes and trapeze artists galore, with rip roaring retro fun to be had at every turn.
The Arches, 29 New Inn Yard London, EC2A 3EY
Rewind to the ’40s at this air raid
styled shindig, where sandbags, blackout curtains, searchlights and oil lamps with military bunkbeds to sit on will complete your authentic experience, while ration books replace bar tabs and provisions will line the walls. The entertainment? Swing bands, DJs spinning big band classics, hearty food, original newsreels, wartime films and even an outdoor hog roast round up your evening. DC: 1940s glam. Home-front utility clothing and allied uniforms all welcome.
