NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTIES IN LONDON
The long-running indie and soul night heads to Holloway Road for its NYE bash this year. Expect to hear everything from The Smiths to The Supremes, and Tammi Terrell to Le Tigre, and to be in very good company: the HDIF New Year’s Eve party always sells out.
Hackney Wick venue Club Mick’s throws its first ever NYE bash. They’re promising a five-hour headline set from a big-name DJ who’s apparently a ‘veritable Guv’nor’, but they’ve already confirmed that Bristol’s James Dyer will be on support duties. And best of all, they’re not hiking up their prices just because it’s New Year’s Eve. Nice.
Awesome Tottenham venue The Cause ends its ‘first chapter’ with this epic 16-hour NYE party. The owners haven’t said what (if anything) the next chapter might involve, but for now, this is your chance to dance the last dance in The Cause’s current home.
Cargo, a Shoreditch club with a large outdoor terrace area, is doing NYE with ‘pure non-stop party vibes’. DJs will spin commercial club music and, in a separate room, R&B and hip hop, while you sustain yourself with street food, drinks from the tiki bar and cocktails. Oh, and if you like confetti canons, you won’t be disappointed.
Ring in 2020 in Camden with a combination of live music from DjeuhDjoah and Onipa, and DJ sets from Soul City’s residents. You can either spend the night on the Jazz Cafe’s dance floor or, if you don’t mind spending a bit more, in the mezzanine restaurant.
The terrier-tongued Bianca Del Rio hosts a dragtastic NYE bash featuring DJ sets from Lady Bunny and Miss Orry, and performances from Mariah Balenciaga, Victoria Secret, Donna Trump and Cookie Kunty. It’s the perfect way to ring in 2020 in genuinely savage style.
A cool but classy NYE all-nighter featuring a six-course meal – including a welcome drink of White Port & Tonic – followed by DJ sets from Neil Thornton, Midnight Riot’s Sean Innit and Mr Shiver. They’ll be playing vinyl only on the venue’s Hi-Fi sound system, so you’re guaranteed a night that sounds as great as it tastes.
As you’d expect from the enduringly popular Kisstory brand, this NYE party is all about the ‘best old skool & anthems’. DJs dropping crowd-pleasers on the night will include ‘Do You Really Like It?’ hitmakers Pied Piper and MC DT.
Beckenham Place Mansion is a suitably grand setting to ring in the New Year, and this party will take place across two atmospheric rooms: the first dedicated to disco, funk and soul, the second playing house, garage and jungle. What’s not to like?
The Glitterbox posse take over massive Canada Water venue Printworks for New Year’s Eve. The DJ line-up hasn’t been announced yet, but you’re guaranteed to get the customary spangly Glitterbox production values including confetti canons, mirrorballs and glamorously-costumed dancers.
