New Year’s Eve? It’s the biggest party night of the year, so you want to make sure it’s done right. Whether you feel like dressing up as your favourite TV character, immersing yourself in a ball pit or dining on a six-course feast as the clock strikes 2019, the go-to guys and gals at DesignMyNight have helped us compile a list of the capital’s most weird and wonderful parties for you to get stuck into.
Flight Club are offering all things games, dancing and food as part of their New Year’s Eve celebrations. For just £15? You’ll start with a glass of complimentary bubbles on arrival, enjoy 90 minutes of battling it out to become Social Darts Champion of the year, and tuck into signature sausage rolls all before hitting the dancefloor. Now that’s a pretty decent package deal if you ask us.
This extravagant house party is the ultimate escape for a night debauchery come December 31st. Taking place in a secret location each and every time, The Mansion’s parties are renowned for mischief and NYE 2018 at The Red Mansion in London is of no exception. Expect three dance floors with DJs, live performers, musicians and art installations to feast your eyes upon. With tickets ranging from £24 to £750, you can tighten the purse strings or go as boujee as you please.
If you’re a fan of the hit TV show, or just love to dress like it’s the 1920s, this is the New Year’s Eve party for you. The Great Exhibition in Dulwich will be transformed into Brum boozer The Garrison, serving speakeasy-inspired cocktails and craft brews to enjoy as you hit the casino tables. For just a tenner you can dance the night away; make Peaky Pounds playing roulette or blackjack, and get absolutely Arthur Shelby’d.
These guys are hosting London’s most ball-ing NYE party. The world-famous ball pit cocktail bar in London has over a million glowing balls to throw yourself into before sipping on quirky cocktails from the bar. You’ll tuck into concoctions like the Skittles Sour and Dibbie Dabberson before dancing the year away to a selection of live DJs.
If you want a spooky start to 2019, Twisted Circus is the event for you. Taking a glamorous approach to the circus theme, expect amazing aerialists, synchronised swinging, daredevils and knife swallowers with UV candy floss alongside extravagant decor and a confetti shower at midnight. Your soundtrack to the night will be provided by resident DJs playing an eclectic mix of everything from hip-hop to club classics.
Yep, you read that right. The ever-kitsch Simmons Soho is giving its guests bottomless booze from 7pm - 2am as part of a £50 ticket. Meaning? You won’t wake up to a gaping hole in your bank account come New Year's Day. Offering a house party experience without the clean-up, Simmons will have you dancing your way into 2019 to the sweet sound of 80s and 90s classics with a sprinkle of soul, hip hop and party mashups.
Gloria threw the wildest parties and hung out with the likes of David Bowie, and in homage to her legacy, this New Year's Eve party in the heart of Covent Garden is groupies and rock stars-themed. There’s a £100 bar tab up for grabs for the best dressed on the night, so dig out your shiniest jumpsuits, don your highest platforms and back-comb your hair to the heavens.
This Italian extravaganza is sure to have you partying until dawn. Hosted by head honcho Don Silvio, the Bunga Bunga New Year’s bash includes a delicious four-course feast of authentic dishes accompanied by a live band. Later on, you’ll be able to dance away the night to a selection of DJs and belt out hits at the Bunga-oke.
This freak show experience is giving you the chance to drink Champagne, rub shoulders with unique entertainers, dance on tables and revel in a night of debauchery... all before 2019 strikes. Not only does your ticket include a two course meal with a spit roast, steak and vegan dishes on the menu, you can enjoy bottomless (yes, bottomless) bubbles from 8pm - 10pm. After you’re wined and dined? Hit the dancefloor for that all important countdown come midnight.
