Last-Minute London: Amazing New Year’s Options You Can Still Book

Last minute planners, we’ve got you covered. It’s not too late to book a fabulous New Year’s Eve in London at some of London’s best hotels to enjoy fireworks, dancing or fine dining.

Top Firework Views: It’s no secret that London puts on an incredible fireworks show, but did you know you can still book parties to watch from a choice of luxury hotels? Up on the 52nd floor of Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard London, feel the funk and boogie like its 1977 at GŌNG Bar's “Studio 52”, as the legendary Studio 54 is reborn in London’s highest hotel bar. Entertainment includes popular drag acts Sadie Sinner and RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Vinegar Strokes. At the stroke of midnight, take in amazing views from the floor to ceiling windows until 2 a.m. Standing tickets available from £180 per person including a glass of Champagne and canapés; tables priced from £700 upwards, depending on the view/number of people and including a bottle of Champagne and canapés. To book a ticket for New Year’s Eve at GŌNG Bar, contact special events at +44 (0) 207 234 8000 or [email protected].

For those still in need of luxury accommodation, there are rooms available at the Corinthia London, which includes access to watch the fireworks on the Embankment, a chilled bottle of Laurent-Perrier La Cuvée Brut Champagne on arrival, access to ESPA Life and English breakfast in Northall, plus complimentary priority room. The hotel’s dining venues—Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge’s bar, Bassoon Bar and award-winning executive chef André Garrett’s Northallˆare quite fully booked, but may have last minute spots for hotel guests. Or, there’s always room service! For room bookings or reservations, contact the hotel at +44 20 7930 8181 [email protected].

Sexy Soiree: After a great success last year, The Lanesborough is once again closing its doors for a New Year’s “House Party” in collaboration with Moët & Chandon. Taking over the ground and lower ground floor of the hotel, the House Party offers guests the chance to get down with a variety of live music and DJs and dance the night away in a unique nightclub styled setting. Sip bubbly and enjoy deliciously crafted canapés, served all evening from the hotel’s talented Michelin-starred executive chef Steeven Gilles and team to welcome the New Year 2020 in style. Tickets from £275 per person; for ticket inquiries email [email protected].

Cozy Up: There are still tables available for a seven-course tasting menu with delights including oysters, lobster and short ribs at the acclaimed Adam Handling Chelsea at the Belmond Cadogan Hotel, starting at 8 p.m. will be live music by four-piece band The Tricks. We love this chic dining room and cosy bar, perfect spot to ring in the New Year with the Chelsea set with a menu of seasonal and local dishes by one of London’s top chefs.
