Unless you're lucky enough to be invited to a penthouse overlooking the Thames, fireworks, music and Big Ben’s ‘bongs’ will involve a lot of standing around in the cold, navigating big crowds and a battle for the public toilets. The fireworks go off at the London Eye riverside and will hopefully be awesome, and handily televised for the stay-at-homes but if you'd rather spend your bongs doing something away from the jolly heaving crowds, here are a few suggestions:
Be bestial: dress up as a fabulous beast for the Last Tuesday Society's Animal Party in a private warehouse in E2 (£25)
Dine and dance: the Disappearing Dining Society host a massive dinner dance at Factory 7, EC2 with ticket options for dinner and dance, drink, snack and dance or just dance (£80-£10)
Do it posh: skate, groove and quaff champagne while enjoying a great view of the London Eye fireworks at Somerset House (£50)
Find some folk: Frog Morris' New Year's Eve Ding Dong mixes folk rock, steampunk, cabaret and a very silly disco at the Montague Arms, New Cross (£5)
Bling it: spit some hip hop karaoke and crunk up your dance moves at the Players' Ball courtesy of The Social (£15 adv, £20)
Flex your superpowers: or at least, dress like you've got some for Superheroes at the Dogstar, Brixton (£5 earlybird, £10)
Be out-outfitted: Bourgeois and Maurice will bring the 'fashion that’s so high you’ll wonder what you’ve taken' and entertain you with a special Fa La La La La show at Soho Theatre, whose Downstairs bar will stay open till 2am (£25)
Feel the heat: dancing to afro-latin funk at the tropicalista party at Rich Mix (£15 adv, £20)
Go old skool: with I love the 80s/90s at Kentish Town Forum (£8 adv, £12)
Get Victorian: at beautiful Hoxton Hall with The Tassel Club Vaudeville Show (£40)
Wear a mask: Paradise by Way of Kensal Green throws a masquerade ball (£25)
Be shocked: by twisted cabaret and avant-garde performance with Forbidden Cabaret at an undisclosed location (£22.50-£35).
Get mashed-up in a car park: Urban Nerds will be out in force for a night of underground electronic, bass and dubstep in Hearn Street, Shoreditch (£35)
Be proud: of your Guilty Pleasures as they get outed in the Southbank's Queen Elizabeth Hall and get a great view of the fireworks from the riverside terrace (£50)
And remember, there will be free travel home between 11.30pm and 04.30am.
