Your NYE Agenda

Your London New Year’s Eve Agenda | NYE 2023 – 2024

Going to a party, drinking champagne, and having an incredible time?

That’s the last thing you’ll want to do this year.

And to help make sure that’s exactly what happens, we’ve lined up a comprehensive list of the most raucous, fun, mind-blowing, and bubbly-loaded NYE throw-downs taking place in the capital, and organised them into a bunch of handy categories.

Now get ready to inspire a few resolutions…



Disappearing Dining Club’s NYE Dinner Dance

nye with disappearing dining club

The dinner: a six-course extravaganza of indulgence featuring oyster velouté, lobster ravioli, Champagne granita and white coffee parfait. The dance: a late-night jam with sound selectors Itchysoul, Neil Thornton and Dave Rose spinning until 3am. The Disappearing Dining Club: the crème-de-la-crème of supperclub and party hosts, who have made their home in this ridiculously cosy North London pub.

Details: The Dartmouth Arms, 35 York Rise, NW5 1SP and 231 Long Lane, London SE1 4PR | Free-£95

PAIRED at Carousel

paired at carousel nye

If you think that New Year’s Eve should be mostly about great food and great music, then you’ll be happy to know that this is an opinion shared by the people at both Carousel (a pop up incubator which produces great food) and AVA (an audiovisual festival which produces great music). And on NYE they’ll be bringing their talents together for PAIRED, an evening in which an excellent chef is coupled up with a stellar DJ for an experience unique to that time & place. Head down on New Year’s Eve, and you can expect to feast on a multi-course tasting menu from Sam Buckley (popping in from his Green Michelin Star-winning restaurant in Stockport, Where The Light Gets In), before dancing the night away with a little deck maestro known as Mr. Scruff…

Details: Carousel, 19-23 Charlotte Street, Fitzrovia, W1T 1RL | Afterparty tickets still available – £30

Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings

B&H buildings nye party

B&H‘s rambling townhouse provides the perfect backdrop to the kind of NYE dinner party you’d love to throw… if you lived in a Clerkenwell mansion with a personal chef. That chef, Matthew Harris, will be cooking up a multi-course banquet alongside live music and flights of cocktails, before you get up to dance to DJ sets across two floors until the wee hours. Oh, and don’t worry about missing the riverside fireworks – because they’ve got some here too. Indoors.

Details: Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings, 42 Northampton Road, Clerkenwell, EC1R 0HU £95

St John Marylebone

It’s the first ever NYE celebration at St John Marylebone, which is throwing two dinner sittings for the occasion. Both will feature a roast goose as the dramatic centrepiece, as well as a welcome pour of St John Champagne. And if you’re lucky, some of it might even go in your glass.

Details: 98 Marylebone Lane, London W1U 2QA | £145

Madera at Treehouse


Frankly, rooftop restaurant Madera could have just let its views do the talking. But they’re going all out for NYE, starting with a celebratory feast of inventive Californian-Mexican dishes (like octopus macha tostadas and sirloin steak sizzling on a hot lava stone), cocktails (like Champagne palomas and hibiscus spritzes), welcome Champers and a shedload of dazzling entertainment, from fire dancers & contortionists to DJ sets from guest spinner DJ Melech.

Details: 14-15 Langham Place, London W1B 2QS | £195pp

Acme Fire Cult x 40FT Brewery

Steve Ryan

Ok, so this might not be a fancy dinner as such, but it will be extremely delicious. 40FT and Acme Fire Cult are getting together in their shared Dalston yard for a piss-up, er, outside a brewery. You’ll get a glass of Moët on arrival, before settling in for a feast of grilled delights like lamb asador buns and scorched chapa potatoes with Alpine cheese, while sipping hot whisky cocktails and tank-fresh beers. And all the while, there’ll be DJ sets from Arveene, Pam Hogg and Primal Scream’s Simone Butler seeing you through to midnight and beyond.

Details: The Bootyard, Abbot St, London, E8 3DP | £10 advance (inc. welcome Champagne), or just chance it on the night




Frank’s, the bar slung beneath the effortlessly stylish Maison Francois, is throwing a ‘Champagne Punk’ NYE knees-up that’s part Studio 54, part punk. Compered by Miss Hap and Slash, the party promises a one-off menu of Champagne cocktails and bubbles by the glass; oysters & loaded fries to fuel the dancing (with a croque-en-bouche centrepiece unveiled at midnight); a soundtrack of vogue ballroom and disco bangers; and more safety pins than a crap halloween mummy costume.

Details: 34 Duke Street, London, SW1Y 6DF | £35

The Candlelight Club

London New Year's Eve

The Candlelight Club will be throwing one of their famously decadent, 1920’s-styled soirées in a secret, candle-lit London location with live music from Elise Roth and the High Standards, cabaret with your host Champagne Charlie, Charleston dancing with the Gatsby Girls, fortune tellers, absinthe, and gramophone DJs.

Details: A Secret London Location | From £60

Brasserie Zédel

brasserie zedel nye party

Can, can you do the can-can? Well, you’ll probably feel like it after a slap-up French meal and a couple of cocktails at Brasserie Zédel, which is transforming its gilded dining room into the Folies Bergères for NYE with cabaret artists, foot-stomping live jazz, acrobats, magicians, performers channelling Marlene Dietrich and Josephine Baker, and can-can dancers at midnight.

Details: 20 Sherwood Street, London, W1F 7ED £70 bar tables still available



The Coral Room | Casa Coral: House of Friends | Partner Content

the coral room

Looking for a great place to sea in the New Year? Then head to The Coral Room.

Your evening will start at the lush, enchanting winter wonderland that is Dalloway Terrace, which has been transformed in collaboration with Perrier-Jouët Champagne with deep red Virginia Creeper, gilded anemones, and twinkling fairy lights. And your palate will be adorned with the likes of their renowned chicken Milanese or fresh Portland crab linguine. After dinner, you’ll then head up to the luxuriant Coral Room itself – a showstopping salon fitted with bespoke Murano glass chandeliers & a glass-and-marble fused bar – where you can sip on disco-themed cocktails, while drummers & Latin dancers roam freely throughout, and DJ Basil spins electrifying Latin beats. And at midnight, everyone gets a special Casamigos tequila shot toast. And entry? Is free.

Details: The Bloomsbury Hotel, 16-22 Great Russell Street, WCIB 3NN

NYE at Callooh Callay

Callooh Callay Shoreditch

If you’re going to pick anywhere to have bottomless cocktails (and canapés, and bubbles) all night long, it may as well be the multi award-winning Callooh Callay, a Shoreditch bar drenched in eccentric, retro glamour.

Details: 65 Rivington Street, EC2A 3AY £100-£130

A Star-Cross’d NYE at Thin White Duke

Just as you’d expect from a cocktail bar inspired by David Bowie, the Thin White Duke is theming their New Year’s Eve party around… Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet. They’re dressing the place up as Juliet’s funeral bower (we expect a lot of neon crosses to be involved), and inviting you to come suitably dressed up for the occasion. And once inside, you’ll get to take your chances at Russian shot roulette, feast on dim sum, dance to a live DJ set and sip glittering gin cocktails.

Details: 22B Great Windmill St, London W1D 7LD | £50

NYE Parties at Mr Fogg’s

foggs nye parties

There are now several Mr. Fogg’s bars across London, and each has something to commend them for NYE this year. There’s the ‘hat-filled fun’ promised at Mr. Fogg’s Hat Tavern (genuinely, every guest gets a hat plopped onto their head on arrival); the Victorian drag king hosting proceedings at Mr. Fogg’s Pawnbrokers; five solid hours of DJ sets at Mr. Fogg’s Apothecary, and much more besides.

Details: Across London | From £20

Sager + Wilde

One of London’s finest wine bars is dipping its toe into the world of cocktails – you’ll get a sparkling French 75 when you arrive for this 12-hour party, and then it’s time to let rip on the six different types of Champagne they’ll be pouring by the glass. You can book ahead, but they’ll be just as happy to see you tip up on the night.

Details: 193 Hackney Road, London, E2 8JL Free entry, no min. spend | 3pm-3am

The Engineers’ Ball

It seems that Battersea Power Station will be keeping the lights on once more… until 2am on New Year’s Eve. Cocktail bar Control Room B will be throwing a party to see out 1955, with a live orchestra band, Champagne, 50s & 60s DJs till the wee hours, and a black tie dress code. And at midnight, you’ll get to stand outside the iconic building to watch the fireworks over the river.

Details: Battersea Power Station, Circus Rd West, Nine Elms, SW8 5BN | £40-100



New Year’s Eve at Amazing Grace

nye parties Amazing Grace

If you told the vicar at St Thomas’s Church, back when it was first built just under a thousand years ago, that one day it would become a bar called Amazing Grace, and that that bar would host a New Year’s Eve party with live bands, DJs till 3am, dancing, Japanese fried chicken, and bottomless drinks… he probably would have been happy that people were still having a religiously good time there. As well as being confused about what Japanese fried chicken was.

Details: Amazing Grace, 9a St Thomas St, SE1 9RY | From £20

Underbelly Boulevard

underbelly Boulevard nye party

If Underbelly Boulevard sounds like a risqué destination for NYE, you’re not far off – it’s the newly reopened theatre space above Walker Court, one of Soho’s last remaining bastions of smut. You can start your night by watching their current show, Bernie Dieter’s Club Kabarett, or just tip up for the after-party, when they’ll be turning the entire theatre into a dancefloor, bussing in DJs and getting the drinks flowing, with snacks from the delightful Café Kitty.

Details: Underbelly Boulevard, 6 Walker’s Court, London, W1F 0BT £10

Love Come Down

Love Come Down New Year's Eve London

Taking over an inconspicuous warehouse for the night, Love Come Down will be spinning ’70s soul & disco tracks with modern edits until 5am. Nothing less, nothing more – and especially no pretentiousness.

Details: Low Profile Studios94 Vale Road, Harringay Warehouse District, London N4 1PT | £11.50+


stereo studio 54 themed nye party

Addie Chinn

STEREO‘s giving you a 360º experience for NYE – the subterranean bar is transforming to a Studio 54-styled disco for the night, with the option to kick off your evening with dinner before the live band and DJs take over till the small hours.

Details: 35 The Piazza, WC2E 8BE £20-40

Little Blue Door NYE House Party

little blue door nye

If you and your friends are tossing round the idea of hosting this year’s NYE house party like a hot potato, the solution is thus: you should all go to the Little Blue Door in Fulham, where you can enjoy a raucous 3-course dinner party, cocktails, and dancing to DJs in what is essentially a giant living room… without any of the clearing up.

Details: 871-873 Fulham Road, SW6 5HP | From £25

Fiddle Paradiddle’s Hogmanay Hootenanny

hogmanay ceilidh

If you’re keen to get some ceilidh practice in before Burns Night in January, head down to St. Thomas’ Church in Balham on NYE, where there’ll be a thunderous night of Scottish dancing going down. Aside from being very difficult to say out loud, Fiddle Paradiddle’s Hogmanay Hootenanny promises a well-stocked bar, some welcome bubbly, a free sweetie station, a big singalong of Auld Lang Syne at midnight, and plenty of dancing with a live band and callers to tell you the steps.

Details: St Thomas’ Church, Telford Avenue, London, SW2 4XW £50-60

NYE at Big Penny Social

big penny social nye events

Believe it or not, the UK’s biggest beer hall is not going to be closed on NYE. Instead, Big Penny Social‘s going to be throwing a 1993-themed party to celebrate the 30th anniversary of East 17’s debut album Walthamstow. How, you ask? By getting East 17 to play a massive gig, followed by 90s DJs, glitter makeover stations, and retro video games.

Details: 1 Priestley Way, E17 6AL | £10-30



New Year’s at The Ned

the ned nye party

Ring in the New Year in an old marble-clad banking hall (that’s now a glamorous hotel and clubhouse from the Soho House team), with free-flowing cocktails, aerial displays, cabaret, live bands, and DJs, plus as many lobsters as you can physically eat.

Details: The Ned, 27 Poultry, EC2R 8AJ £350

606 Club’s NYE Extravaganza

London New Year's Eve 606 club jazz

Surprisingly for a jazz bar, 606 Club won’t be improvising on New Year’s Eve. They’ve enlisted the help of superlative jazz pianist Neil Angilley and his trio to play you through a three course dinner, before an eight-strong band joins forces with special guest Imaani for “compulsory grooving” on the dancefloor until 2am.

Details: 90 Lots Road, SW10 0QD £150

The Piano Works

piano works

The Piano Works‘ two bars aren’t doing anything unusual for New Year’s Eve. But then, ‘usual’ for them means bussing in a energetic band of musical prodigies for a joyously uplifting gig where they exclusively play requests from the crowd, all night long. So this NYE, they’re doing exactly that… with a black tie dress code.

Details: The Piano Works, 113-117 Farringdon Road, EC1R 3BX | £15-65

The George

the george pub nye

By a strange quirk of physics, 2024 arrives in Ireland at exactly the same time as it does England. So it’s fitting that The George will have live Irish music playing in the new year (till 1.30am!) with the option to start your night with a three course dinner (and a little fizz on arrival).

Details: 55 Great Portland Street, Fitzrovia, W1W 7LQ | Dinner spots still available, £100

Lina Stores King’s Cross

lina stores nye celebration

To celebrate the pasta year, Lina Stores King’s Cross is hosting a five-course blow-out banquet of 30 egg yolk tagliolini & black truffle; burrata; sirloin steak and more, all to a soundtrack of mood-setting live music, and bookended with glasses of Prosecco. Then as the evening wears on, you’ll be serenaded by DJs playing Italian tracks, plus there’s a tombola (it’s Italian!) with some truly delicious prizes up for grabs…

Details: 20 Stable Street, N1C 4DR £100+


nightjar nye

Nightjar Shoreditch is seeing out 2023 the way everyone should: welcome Champagne cocktails with a teeny, tiny tiny little ice cream on the side. And it only gets better from there – you’ll get to enjoy a cheese or charcuterie board while the Miss Jones trio serenade you with live blues & vintage swing.

Details: 129 City Road, London, EC1V 1JB £90


NYE dinners don’t come classier than an elegant three-course meal at Bistrotheque, with the inimitable Xavior tinkling away on the ivories. Whether you want to maintain that classiness is between you and the drinks menu.

Details: 23-27 Wadeson Street, London, E2 9DR £65





Do you want to tell your grandchildren about the time you didn’t spend NYE on a rooftop bar right next to Battersea Power Station, sipping Champagne as the fireworks went off? Didn’t think so.

Details: art’otel London Battersea Power Station, 15th Floor, 1 Electric Boulevard, London SW11 8BJ | £150+

New Years Eve Celebration at The Nest

the nest nye

Perched at the top of the Treehouse Hotel in Marylebone is The Nest, which has some of the most dazzling views in London. You’ll be handed a glass of Moët & Chandon on arrival, before spending the rest of the night bopping to guest DJ Max Menaged (fresh from spinning at KOKO and for Louis Vuitton), while soaking up the glittering 360º panorama.

Details: 14-15 Langham Place, London W1B 2QS Min. spend £100pp

Skylight Tobacco Dock

skylight london rooftop ice rink

Skylight surveys a large panoramic sweep of the City skyline, and packs enough space for roughly 600 vertigo-immune punters, across both indoor and outdoor spaces – and that makes for a pretty great atmosphere for an NYE party. Particularly when you include the raclette, the rooftop ice skating, the photobooth, the DJ, and the Champagne.

Details: Tobacco Dock, London E1W 2SF | £45 or £799+ for a heated igloo for the night


NOTE: The London New Year’s Day Parade starts at a respectable 12pm on the 1st of January, and will feature an incredible line-up of over 10k performers from across the globe. Might do something for that hangover, too.
