With 2017 coming to a close, it’s about time we all started planning our farewell to the year, welcoming 2018 with a bang on New Years Eve. As celebrations kick off all over the capital, from Shoreditch to Shepherd’s Bush, we have put together a list of Roosters’ top NYE London parties. Whether your more of a fizz and fireworks or trainers and two step kind of person, we hope something in this guide might just take your fancy!
Taking over one of south London’s hottest venues, the aptly named South London Soul Train is bringing in the new year with a funk-tastic bang at Peckham’s Bussey Building. Spread across a whopping four floors and five rooms, the SLST presents a line-up of 13 hard hitting, heavyweight dancefloor roasting, soul toasting DJs. Don’t hang about however, with tickets already on final release, this is set to be a sell-out.
New Wapping late night haunt E1 relaunches in true style this New Year’s Eve. The club, once studio, is throwing a mammoth 27-hour party with the likes of Âme, Mano Le Tough and Avalon Emerson leading the charge on the decks. With a brand new Funktion- One sound system in place, this immense party will leave your ears ringing and heart pounding. Running from 9pm on NYE till 12am on the 2nd, let’s just say you could certainly make your moneys worth on the £35 ticket if you were up to the challenge.
Feeling fancy and like the idea of toasting in the new year with a glass of bubbles and arguably London’s best view? Well, perched at the top of London’s tallest building you can welcome in 2018 with copious cocktails and tremendous views of the infamous London NYE fireworks display as the clock strikes midnight. With a price tag of nearly £200 it’s certainly not the cheapest option, but if you’re somehow feeling flush this festive season why not splash out on this champagne fuelled shindig and truly celebrate in style! Think a normal night out for the Made In Chelsea cast, a special treat for us riff raff.
In the mood for fireworks but can’t face standing outside in the Baltic British winter to watch the display? Clapham Grand might just have the solution. Imagine swinging sixties level psychedelia, with a club night where the lights and visuals are on headline duties. Indoor fireworks, laser shows and UV displays create an optical performance that will delight the senses. Not neglecting your ears however, the soundtrack to the night comes in the form of body shaking, knee wobbling, heart throbbing Techno, House and Garage.
There we have it, a few top picks from us Roosters for this years NYE London celebrations. Hopefully something might take your fancy or perhaps, you are more inclined to a night in at one of your mates with a crate of lager or bottle of red… we also highly recommend this.
