Okay, so you could hold down the fort in your PJs. Or you could make this New Year’s Eve memorable by hitting up some of London’s best soirées to start 2020 the way you mean to continue the year – on holiday!
From dancing the night away at a spectacular black and white gala while being serenaded by a traditional orchestra to sky-high panoramic vistas of the Tower Bridge with fireworks illuminating the night sky, we’ve selected our top three Priceless Experiences to kick off the New Year with a bang – London-style.
Fizz the season for cocktails and at Jin Bo Law Skybar, you’ll be able to savour the last of 2019 with a welcome cocktail on arrival. Shake up your New Year’s Eve with a bespoke cocktail masterclass with a spirit connoisseur on the 14th floor and drink in panoramic vistas of London icons old and new: the Tower Bridge, the Shard, the Walkie Talkie and the Gherkin.
As the clock ticks closer to midnight, enjoy canapés and groove to the in-house DJ’s pick of 2019s best tunes. When the clock strikes midnight and the new decade rings out, head onto the sleek City/East End terrace to watch as the Tower Bridge is crowned by a kaleidoscope of fireworks while you clink glasses of Moët & Chandon.
Moored along the banks of the iconic River Thames, The Yacht London is the perfect place to watch London’s skyline burst onto the world stage and kick off the riverside revelry. So, ditch your PJs and tie your finest full Windsor knot or slip on your most elegant pair of silk gloves for one of the New Year’s classiest black-tie events.
Commence the evening with decadent canapés and a complimentary bottle of champagne followed by an epicurean journey over six delicious courses from your window-seat round table. Swaying to the rhythm of the River Thames, dance the night away as you’re serenaded by live music from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, before watching the firework spectacular from the yacht’s viewing terrace.
Prepare to be swayed into the New Year with a Downton Abbey-worthy evening of music by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the acclaimed The Chesterfield Mayfair.
Channel your inner Matthew and Mary Crawley as you’re whisked into a world of old-glamour and opulence, where upon arrival you’ll meet the Royal Philharmonic’s string quartet that will enthral you with music throughout the evening.
Savour a seven-course meal crafted with the finest seasonal ingredients at the Butlers Restaurant, dining on culinary delights such as Scottish langoustine, black truffle with parmesan cream and nasturtium pesto or roasted goose with caramelised pear and pickled walnut, amongst others.
After dinner, twirl into the romantic candlelit conservatory to see in the New Year under the stars with a glass of champagne in-hand. Cheers!
