A massive Prohibition era-themed event, Superheros and a Carnival. Here's our top picks of the most fiery and explosive NYE parties.
Jewel Prohibition NYE Party
Prohibition themed parties are the trend of 2013, and considering how much fun people had at Gatsby’s gaff we can understand why. In true 1920s style, Jewel in Piccadilly will be hosting a New Year’s Eve party like no other. As the doors open you’ll be able to indulge in an extravagant champagne tower reception, and the flamboyance doesn’t stop there… Dancing showgirls to tickle your tail feathers, bootleggers to supply you with illegal alcohol, cops to catch you out, and of course, a live swing band will keep you shimmying from dusk to dawn.
Entrance is £25 and if you like to splash your cash like Gatsby did, there are some VIP packages available to purchase also including champagne, Grey Goose vodka and reserved VIP areas. Buy tickets here.
Dress code is 1920’s flapper girls and black tie, so don your finest glad rags because guys and gals it’s time to dress to impress.
Carnival do Grace
In the deepest darkest depths of winter, Rio lands itself in the heart of Piccadilly Circus at Grace Bar where the heat is being turned up for a very fiery New Year’s Eve party. To get you in the Latino swing of things Grace will be showcasing some of Brazil’s finest talent, including a samba band and capoeira artists, along with a street parade at the beginning of the night to get you well and truly warmed up. To ensure the fire stays in your tail the entire evening there will also be a host of exotic entertainers including dance performances, fire artists, stilt walkers, and snake charmers. The resident DJ will be spinning tunes till 5am, and in the words of Nelly, things will be getting ‘hot in here’.
Tickets are priced at £20 for standard entry but if you want to push the boat out for an even more spectacular evening then you can dine in the Terrace restaurant on a luxurious 5-course meal for £50 including entry. Book your tickets, packages and dinner here.
The dress code is smart and stylish, but if you’re in need of jazzing your outfit up to suit the occasion, then there’s a face paint artist on hand to reveal your wild side with some bold colours with artistic detail.
