Gatsby New Year's Eve Party

Gatsby New Year's Eve Party

One of several Gatsby-themed dos on NYE, this one takes place at the swish and swanky Mansion Bar. An evening of sophistication and smooth jazz are promised by the organisers, along with plenty of Champagne, canapés, Charleston dancers and enough debonair goings-on and '20s costumes to fill Gatsby's bloody massive mansion.

Of course it's a fun idea but the photograph is not at all enticing, although it's a welcome relief from all the "let's stick out our tongues, screech & make Wooooooo noises to show what an enviable bunch we are" variety. Unfortunately this suggests either desultory conversations in your own clique or a hit & run with the one with the shortest skirt. The description makes it sound good so best of luck for a cheerful evening, but dear Time Out I'm not sure that "bloody" (apart from out of Eliza Doolittle's mouth) fits with "debonair", "swish" & "swanky", although if it's in the novel I apologise as it's a while since I read & even re-read it. Happy celebrations wherever midnight finds you.
