The Candlelight Club’s Jazz Age New Year’s Eve Party

If you’re interested, be quick about booking – early bird tickets and dinner options have already been snapped up, but there’s still time to dust off your glad rags and save yourself a spot.

The Brixton Ball

With an excellent tagline on it’s website inviting punters to ‘take a wrong turn to the right place’, Lost in Brixton is a colourful, hidden gem with a rooftop terrace.

Nestled beneath The Bloomsbury Hotel, Bloomsbury Bowling Lanes is a bit of central London hidden gem. It’s a retro bowling lanes, bar, venue and karaoke joint all rolled into one. Keeping the vintage vibe going into a new decade, NYE is all about the 80s, 90s and 00s.

And of course, there are pins to knock down on the lanes, and Karaoke Booths primed for slurry renditions of anthems from many decades. There’s also be a well-stocked bar, and you can grab snacks in the diner to fuel up for the midnight hour and beyond.
