New Year’s Eve party planning is always fraught with difficulty. The right choice can mean carousing the night away in a temple of Dionysian pleasure. A step wrong can see you wandering around a soulless bar or now-unfashionable restaurant and thinking about when you can reasonably call a cab without being labelled a killjoy.
Thankfully, London has no shortage of fine NYE events on offer, and few will match the decadent delights of the capital’s Sky Bar on 31st December.
Located on the 28th and 29th floor of London’s famous Millbank Tower, offering the best views of London’s Thames Fireworks, the evening will be set across both floors. The 29th – dubbed ‘‘Decadence Defined’’ – comprises unlimited free-flowing bars and waiters serving a gastronomic feast of unlimited food and drinks (including premium champagne) designed exclusively for the evening, as well as incredible DJ sets and live bands.
On the 28th floor, ‘‘Cabaret Extravaganza’’ will unfold with a Moulin Rouge theme, including burlesque showgirls, a cheeky ‘‘boylesque’’ performer, plus DJs, cocktails and food. When the clocks strike midnight, a champagne toast will help you celebrate, while a cabaret-themed photo booth will also make sure you capture the glamorous evening on film.
For those with the stamina, your ticket includes entry to an exclusive after-party. Decadent guests will have the opportunity to feast on a bespoke gourmet champagne breakfast from 4am. For those looking for a more relaxed evening, a private cinema will play classics non-stop, with unlimited fresh popcorn on hand.
So relax, because when it comes to the biggest night of the year, you’re in safe hands with the Sky Bar. London nightlife never looked so good.
