London is the place to be to celebrate the turn of the New Year. Whether you’re watching the Mayor of London’s fireworks, propping up the bar in your local or partying hard at a club night, there will always be atmosphere aplenty in the capital.
A VIP night out in London is a fantastic experience and one you should definitely consider for the most important party date of the year. Imagine getting dressed up to the nines with your hair and make-up freshly done, then jumping the queue of a high-end Mayfair or Kensington club, drinking free champagne and having access to your own reserved table area all night whilst partying amongst a sea of rich and famous faces. You might expect to come across famous musicians, socialites, footballers, Olympians and even younger members of the Royal family. Choose your venue now and book your New Year VIP tickets ASAP to avoid disappointment as they do sell out quickly.
One of the most famous venues in the whole of the UK, this Polynesian-themed club opened its doors in 2005 and includes a Tiki lounge bar serving the most delicious tropical cocktails one could possibly imagine whilst sat on tiki chairs next to bamboo and totem poles. Brave partygoers can even try the infamous club’s fishbowls and treasure chests. Paparazzi are usually loitering outside the back doors of Mahiki waiting patiently for their next celebrity victims to stumble out. Some pretty big names have been spotted here, including Scarlett Johansson and Paris Hilton as well as Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice and even Princes William and Harry.
Kensington Roof Gardens
Owned by Sir Richard Branson, this exclusive club in Kensington attracts celebrities such as Sienna Miller and Jade Jagger on a regular basis. There are three themed gardens, of the English, Spanish and Tudor variety at this venue and outdoor heaters ensure that guests are able to enjoy the external areas whatever the weather. However, the interior of the club is equally spectacular with extravagant decorations and an intimate ambience. As with all high-end clubs in London, drinks are pricey and a New Year’s Eve ticket will require you to part with a fair bit of cash but it’ll be worth every penny if not for the view of fireworks going off all over the capital.
This Mayfair-based club is now in its 4th year of existence and attracts names such as Calvin Harris who recently performed a set here to a sell-out crowd. Full of beautiful and extremely wealthy people drinking bottles of Cristal all night, this club plays exclusively house music and completely shuns commercial chart music. The décor at Project is particularly minimalistic with ultramodern lighting and screens showing videos all night long.
When attending a high-end VIP club, it’s essential that you do your utmost to look the part and fit in. Always dress to impress following the dress code to the letter. Be courteous to door staff, who have the power to turn away any rude, aggressive or inebriated customers. Above all else, make sure you have a great night and thoroughly enjoy celebrating New Year’s Eve alongside London’s elite.
