Here at DrinkUp.London we're pretty lucky to know the best of London's bars. And some of them throw fantastic NYE parties, where the drinks don't mean an hours queue at the bar and the place isn't packed like sardines. So if, like us, you're ready to celebrate the night with friends, cocktails and Champagne, but without the thousands of sweaty strangers and panic of finding somewhere for midnight, book a spot at a bar and enjoy what is meant to be a fantastic night out.
With options to sip Champagne in the Bar, dance in the Brasserie or tuck into a three-course dinner in the Restaurant, OXO has every New Year’s Eve need covered. This is going to be one fancy affair with ladies in their most fabulous finery and gents in black-tie or dinner jackets and there's even the option to walk down to the river to see the fire works. See details here.
Oriole might be the new kid on the block but they certainly know how to celebrate. The Sugar Kings will ring in the new year here with their tropical rhythms structured around a Cuban Son line-up of piano, baby bass, trumpet, congas and timbales. Expect Mambo, Guaracha, Bolero, Cha Cha Cha and general hip-swinging, life-affirming musical happiness. Plus champagne. See details here.
