Big Bang NYE Boat Party 2014

New Year's Eve on a boat, you say? This one should be a popular choice. This five-houe coat cruise along the Thames is in no way a cheap NYE option at just shy of £200 for a ticket, but the price include unlimited beer, wine and soft drinks, two free glasses of champagne, a buffet and resident DJ spinning party tunes all night. Oh, and it's no sports wear, hoodies, trainers or baseball caps, so dress smart.

Sankeys London

  • Critics choice

Manchester nightclub Sankeys has a well-deserved air of the legendary about it. Making a name for itself as one of the UK's finest clubs for underground tunes, it played host to some amazing names – Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, Laurent Garnier, even Björk – before it closed in 2013, but not before opening up branches in Ibiza and New York – and then reopening the Manchester branch as well for good measure. And now London is being given its own taste of Manchester's

Percolate presents Love Saves the Day New Year's Eve

  • Critics choice

Aiming to recreate the atmosphere of David Manusco's legendary Love Saves the Day parties in '70s NYC (which saw artists like Frankie Knuckles and Larry Levan get behind the decks), London party pros Percolate are throwing an intimate NYE bash that should be one to remember. In the spirit of Mancusso's events, it'll be an invite-only party, but you can get yourself on the guestlist by emailing simond@percolatemusic.co.uk or fred@percolatemusic.co.uk.

Black Butter Records NYE

  • Critics choice

A fine NYE showing from progressive bass and house label Black Butter, perhaps best known for launching the career of soulful bass act Rudimental. The BB are welcoming in 2015 at Electric Brixton, signalling their biggest London show of the year. So far, they're keeping things close to their chest and promising only the 'Black Butter family', which could include anyone from chart-invading bass-house duo Gorgon City to classical-electronica pop act Clean Bandit to – of course

Club De Fromage Vs Old School Indie New Year’s Eve

  • Critics choice

It's always hard to keep everyone happy when selecting a NYE clubbing destination. But if the fault line in your crew is between the bubblegum pop addicts and be-fringed, dirty indie kids, then this is the night for you. Club de Fromage and Old School Indie are taking a room each, serving up Lady Gaga, Madonna and Take That in one and Pulp, The Smiths and Bowie in the other. In true NYE style, there'll be a balloon drop, confetti and, er, meat pies – less festive, perhaps, but

Ultimate Power vs Guilty Pleasures

  • Critics choice

Two much-loved London club nights join forces for a New Year's Eve that promises unabashed, gloriously OTT fun and plenty of epic/out-of-tune singalongs. Tonight it's guilty pop pleasures going head-to-head with ultimate power ballads. Who will win? You, essentially, as you're the ones who get to dance and break out your air guitar stance with no fear of looking uncool, as everyone else will be doing the same. Expect '90s jams, cheesy pop, hip hop, classic hair metal, riff-tastic

  1. The Forum 9-17 Highgate Rd, NW5 1JY
  2. Wed Dec 31 - Thu Jan 1

Half Baked NYE Special

  • Critics choice

Party promoters Half Baked round off the year with a big NYE event, featuring a special guest from acclaimed techno labels Perlon and Ostgut Ton.

Hedonistic sounds and dirty dancefloor cuts at Brixton Jamm this NYE, from the Gold Teeth crew. The GT residents will be battering your ears in glorious fashion with hip hop, garage, house, rap, grime and some groovier flavours via funk, soul, reggae and '90s jams.

Krankbrother New Year's Eve

Serious NYE party shenanigans from the Krankbrother crew, as ever. Refined techno ledge Mr G headlines, with further four-four bliss from Chicago and NYC stomp-channelling hero Gerd, eccentric French disco experimenter Ivan Smagghe and the Krankbrother residents.

Spiritland

  • Critics choice

Angled as a new space for soaking up music of all shapes and sizes – via a huge collection of vinyl amassaed by the organisers – Spiritland will be holding a three-month residency (lasting until January 2015) at sleek Shoreditch bar and restaurant Merchant's Tavrern. It runs seven days a week and is free to all, which is a bit of a bargain, really, as you can catch some top DJs digging into the vinyl treasure trove.

The best Halloween parties in London

Be afraid, be very afraid... Like a stealthy vampire or a sneaky zombie, Halloween has snuck up on us again. The good news is that as Halloween itself falls on a Friday this year, the number of frightfully fantastic parties has gone off the scale. Plan your party schedule for a weekend of ghoulish grooving (Friday 31 October – Sunday 2 November 2014) using our guide below. We've picked out the top ten Halloween parties, below, but if none of those float your ghoulish boat, there are tons more options over two pages. Popular Halloween events Black Butter Records Halloween Special Black Butter Records, the on-point label known for launching the careers of Rudimental, Gorgon City, Clean Bandit and numerous others, returns to Village Underground for a Halloween rave. The line-up is secret and billed only as 'Black Butter family plus special guests', but considering the clout of that family (as well as the aforementioned acts, the label works with Kidnap Kid, Scrufizzer, Bipolar Sunshine, Jess Glynee and plenty more hot-topic acts that straddle electronic R&B, soul, deep house, drum'n'bass and much more.
