Things to do


Bourne & Hollingsworth | NYE Parties

You haven’t made it yet, but we already know what your New Year’s Resolution will be.

Something along the lines of “continue having probably the best NYE ever, drinking only the finest cocktails, wine and other beverages surrounded by jaw dropping, awe-inspiring entertainment”.

Thankfully, you’re going to absolutely smash that resolution literally seconds after 2017 begins. Something which we’re confident of because we trust you know what you’re doing, meaning you’ll probably be ringing in the new year at any one of the following soirées:

1) The B&H New Year’s Eve House Party. It’s a bit like going to a regular house party, except you’re a millionaire. Held in B&H Buildings in Clerkenwell, your evening will start with canapés, cocktails and a live acoustic band before you make your way into the Garden Room. Here you’ll be served up a four course banquet, prepared by Michelin-starred chef, Adam Gray – it should give you plenty of energy to see in the wee hours, with a little help from your friend the DJ.

Details: 7.30pm-2am | £40 – £80 | B&H Buildings, Clerkenwell, EC1R 0HU.

2) The Blitz Party. A gigantic knees up in a makeshift East London bunker, complete with trenches, bunk beds, blacked out windows, DJs and dancing. Plus live big bands and swing bands playing wartime classics (and a collection of more modern songs, shaken up and remixed in a suitably ‘40s style). And, of course, there’ll be provisions to snack on. And cocktails to make your victory rolls curl.

Details9pm-3am | £55 | B1, Victoria House Basement, Bloomsbury, WC1B 4DA.

3The Prohibition Party. If you were at all concerned that your NYE might be a tad on the bauched side, allow us to introduce The Prohibition Party – replete with flappers, silent cinema, teacup cocktails, and everything else you could possibly need for a raucous evening of debauchery. You’ll get to shake your tailfeathers to live bands and gramophone DJs, and even try your luck at the gambling tables. That’s when you’ll know a really good night’s on the cards.

Details: 9pm-3am | From £55 | Secret Central London Ballroom.

4) The Dark Circus Party. Like all the best circuses, this party is kind of in tents. Expect powerful cocktails, risqué costumes, high-flying trapeze artists and acrobats tumbling from hoops. A collaboration between B&H and Europe’s biggest fetish club, Torture Garden, it’s a chance to venture over to the dark side before waking up the next morning with a completely fresh start.

And on this occasion, it technically will be.

Details: 9pm-3am | From £55 | The Grand Hall, St. Pancras, WC1H 9AU.


NOTE: All of these riotous New Year’s Eve parties are happening, as you would expect, on New Year’s Eve. You can find out more information, and book any of them right HERE.
