If you're on the lookout for a no-holds-barred night of dining, dancing and downright decadence this New Year's Eve, get yourself to The 2019 London New Year’s Eve Ball. We're talking canapé receptions, unlimited drinks, four-course banquets, live entertainment and much, much more. Plus, Londonist readers can get 10% off tickets. Here’s the lowdown…
Every year, this annual blow-out takes over the giant Evolution London in Battersea Park and transforms it into something totally unforgettable. To welcome in 2020? You’re off to New York! That's right, step off the London streets and spend the biggest night of the year in the city that never sleeps, filled with yellow cabs, subway stations and good ol' Yankee bars. London who?!
From the moment doors open at 7.30pm right the way through 'til the early hours, there's masses to get stuck into. Kick off the night in style with a sparkling wine and canapé reception, before filling your boots at the opulent four-course banquet.
Prepared fresh on the day using seasonal ingredients, you can expect to tuck into the likes of double baked cheese soufflé, beef sirloin with glazed parsnips and sticky toffee pudding drenched in salted caramel fudge sauce. Plus a bonus spread of delicious British cheeses and biscuits to finish. The diet starts in January, right?
Once the knives and forks are down the knees-up well and truly begins. Dive into a few games of baccarat at the late night casino, battle it out against your mates on the dodgems, then let loose on the dance floor. The live DJ and disco lasts all night long, so there’s plenty of time to show off your finest moves. In need of a breather? Simply kick back with a drink in hand and soak up exciting Broadway-inspired live performances as the clock ticks towards midnight.
Speaking of drinks, you need never find yourself without one. House wine, beer and soft drinks are all-inclusive, all night long, which means you’re in perfect position to raise a toast as the clock strikes twelve. Cheers with friends, old and new, then ooh and aah as you’re treated to a front row view of London’s world-famous fireworks, broadcast by live stream.
From then on, it's pure party time right up to 3am. Leaving New York is never easy, but on this occasion your return to reality is made as simple as pie — free shuttle buses are on hand from midnight to whip you through to London Victoria, or you can make the most of the designated black taxi rank right outside. They really have thought of everything, haven't they?
