Ever. Here at Late Night London partying is in our blood, so as everybody around us prepares themselves for the onslaught of Christmas, we have only one thing on our minds and it’s got nothing to do with the so-called ‘big day’.
Anybody who’s anybody knows that these days, it’s all about the after party. So how can we forget about the greatest after party of all time? That’s right people, it’s almost New Year’s Eve, and boy do we have a line up for you that the party gods themselves couldn’t have dreamt up. So when the 31st rolls around we don’t want to hear any complaining about having to stay home and babysit the dog, because we’ve put together the ultimate party menu for you to browse. Choose wisely party people….
If for you Christmas inspiration is all about the past, search no further than Sway Bar’s Gatsby extravaganza. Tipped to be ‘the party Jay wishes he hosted!’ you’ll be whisked back in time to the roaring twenties with flappers on your right and a champagne tower to your left. With two floors of vintage glamour and Gatsby themed entertainment, prohibition style cocktails and paparazzi lurking in every corner, you’ll be the star of the show. For £60 you can enjoy a comedy show, dinner and dancing…and did we mention there are cannons at midnight?! So break out your glad rags old sports, and prepare yourself for the party of the decade.
If getting away from the chill of our darling but brisk London is your plan then the ‘Lost At Sea’ bash at Kanaloa is the place for you to be. Bringing tropical beats and exotic vibes to the capital, this Desert Island Disco will transport you to a tiki paradise where the drinks keep flowing and the party doesn’t stop. With cocktails including the ‘Coconut Cannon Ball’ and the all-important Piña Colada served in a pineapple, you’ll forget all about the dark London streets outside. Early bird tickets are just £20, so get ready for hula girls galore and even the odd limbo competition: get low, get low, get low…
For those of you looking to glam it up this NYE, then Babble Mayfair’s ‘Glitz and Glamour’ party is the one for you (the clue’s in the name really…). Featuring R&B anthems and house classics, as well as a special appearance from TOWIE’s Mario, this oh so stylish celebration will help you see in the New Year in the most elegant way imaginable. Amongst stilt walkers and fire eaters, the party will spread across Babble’s three rooms and beyond.

If you’re looking for the most precious of evenings, why not go for gold? Loop Bar is laying on the shiniest shindig around with its Gold Party, featuring resident DJ’s Kiss 100’s Rickie & Melvin taking you through all the biggest & best dance floor fillers from 2014. Loop is transforming its 3 floors into pure indulgence, setting the standard for the year to come. The Groovy Wonderland vibe will take you back through the decades and all for £20 in advance! Watch out for the gold explosion at midnight…
If colour is so 2014, then head for the Black & White party at Jewel Piccadilly and Opal Bar (yes, there’s a choice!), which are sure to help you see in the New Year in the most delightfully decadent manner. With club classics banging in the background and electric violinists adding a dash of class, Jewel’s £25 and Opal’s £30-a-ticket festivals of no colour will be nights to remember (or even forget…). Who needs Technicolor anyway?
