9 New Year’s Eve Parties That You Need On Your Radar

It’s been one hell of a year, and we don’t really mean that in a good way. The best (and only) way to end it is with a big old party. Here’s a few options for you…


1. Pandora’s Box at Gilgamesh, Camden

[Xclusive Touch]
Dance in the footsteps of A-list celebs, including Olly Murs and Paris Hilton. (Yep, that’s right). Gilgamesh is Camden’s most glamorous venue and it’s hosting a huge NYE extravaganza. With 3 rooms boasting top DJs and live performers, this promises to be a magical end to 2016.

Saturday 31 December, 9pm-4am. You can buy tickets here.  


2. The Wolf of Wall Street at indigo at The O2


[Xclusive Touch]
Enjoy a themed evening with the ‘traders’ in one of the city’s greatest venues. The night will be full of surprises, including a magical midnight confetti shower (oops, spoiled that one). There’ll be a photo booth, ping pong tables, and a chance to win a weekend getaway in New York! Arrive early to get your hands on a free glass of champers (between 9-10) and invest in a VIP ticket to qualify for pizza at 3am. You know you want to…

Saturday 31 December, 9pm-4am. You can buy tickets here.


3. ‘The Views’ NYE Fireworks Boat Party

All aboard the Dutch Master for a banging evening of frolicking and fireworks. You’ll have prime view of the midnight fireworks, without the misery of standing in a crowd of sweaty Londoners. The boat will depart from Greenwich Pier at 8.45pm sharp, so get there early or it’ll float off without you. After alighting the boat in the new year, you’ll head to a secret location* to continue the party. But only if you can handle it…

*the venue will be announced on December 27. 8pm-1.15pm (not incl. after-party). You can buy tickets here.


4. The Shoreditch Takeover at Sink, Shoreditch

[Xclusive Touch]
Head to Shoreditch’s largest venue for a night of retrotainment. There’ll be beer pong, classic red cups, hip-hop tunes and lots of UV paint. (On the walls. No one’s going to be spraying you with glow-in-the-dark paint. That’s so 2011). This will be the finale to a fab series of TAKEOVER events, and it’s set to be a sell out!

Saturday 31 December, 9pm-3am. You can buy your tickets here.  


5. Lost in Wonderland at 93 Feet East, Shoreditch

Get lost in Wonderland, a.k.a London’s trendiest venue, The Old Truman Brewery. The night will be split across 4 rooms; the Rabbit Hole, the Cheshire Woods, the Queen’s Domain and the Mad Hatter’s Castle. Each will play a different genre of music, ranging from funk and house to soul and r&b. Arrive early for an exclusive invite to the Mad Hatter’s tea party, where you’ll get complimentary cocktails made by the Hatter himself!

Saturday 31 December, 9pm-5am. You can buy tickets here.


6. Twisted Circus at Shaka Zulu, Camden

[Xclusive Touch]
 From the moment you arrive, you should expect the unexpected. Watch the weird and wonderful acts unfold, including acrobats, fire breathers and sword swallowers. Say goodbye to 2016 with a bunch of surprises (not that we haven’t seen enough surprises this year) — and all within one of London’s most spectacular venues.

Saturday 31 December, 9pm-4am. You can buy tickets here.


7. Fire & Ice at Cafe 1001, Shoreditch

This event is perfect for the hungry drunks… there’s cake for goodness sake. Head to Cafe 1001 on NYE for the hottest and coolest event of the year. The night will be split across 2 rooms: the Ice Room, hosted by the glamorously dressed Snow Queen; and the Fire Room, hosted by the Goddess of Fire and featuring performances from a fabulous fire breather. Each room will be playing different music, ranging from funky house to 90s classics. Above all, the cafe will be open all night, with sweet offerings of cakes, muffins and hot food. (We know where you’d find us all night)!

Saturday 31st December, 9pm-4am. You can buy tickets here (VIP packages available).


8. TURNT House Party at The Driver, King’s Cross

[Xclusive Touch]
Everyone loves a house party, and TURNT always throw the best ones. The only catch? You actually have to leave the house. Party across 5 different floors and expect hours of Old Skool tracks. Head to the roof terrace for stunning views across London, and stick around for free pizza at 3am. TURNT parties have a habit of selling out, so don’t wait about!

Saturday 31 December, 9pm-4am. You can buy tickets here.


9. Midnight by the Thames at 28 West, Canary Wharf

Located on the beautiful Canary Wharf riverfront, 28 West is a glamorous club promising big things this New Year’s Eve. There’ll be confetti cannons, a champagne reception (for the early birds) and stunning views across the city. Oh and there’s also fussball… the classiest part of the evening, of course.

Saturday 31 December, 9pm-4am. You can buy tickets here.
