Don’t fancy ringing in the new year at a crap house party or ignoring it completely by getting an early night? Are you determined to go out but your mates just can’t decide on where? We’ve solved all your NYE woes and rounded up the events, whether you fancy dinner or something a little stronger, that’ll start off your 2023 in style.

Somerset House 

Somerset House has a full evening of fun planned for this New Year’s Eve. Maximising every area of the grand building, you can late-night skate in the Courtyard while RuPaul’s Drag Race UK star Jonbers Blonde and Soho Radio DJ, head to the East Wing for a house party-style bar hosted by Foundation FM and, at midnight, watch the Mayor of London’s fireworks from the River Terrace. No NYE would be complete without bubbles, so thankfully there’ll be plenty of Moët to go around.

One of London’s hottest rooftop restaurants has pulled out all the stops for its New Year’s Eve celebrations. The evening will start with a glass of Perrier Jouët Grand Brut and Exmoor Caviar, followed by a range of sharing dishes and mains like dressed king crab, octopus croquetas, lobster rice, turbot in champagne sauce and finished off with more champagne and their famous manchego cheesecake. Glasses of fizz, a killer view of the city, and some surprises along the way – what more could you possibly want to enter the New Year with?

Carousel x AVA

Chef residency space Carousel is teaming up with the Audio Visual Arts Festival & Conference (AVA) for a brand new series, PAIRED. This inaugural event will see two respected DJs working with two of the world’s most exciting chefs to create a one-off multisensory dining experience. Chef Rosio Sanchez will work with DJ Call Super, chef Emme Prieto will join forces with Yung Singh and both duos will craft an experience where food, drink and music will take centre stage.

Park Chinois

Choose between an early night or an all-night celebration at Mayfair’s super-luxe restaurant and club Park Chinois with their ‘Dynasty – Rule the Night’ event. If you have somewhere else to be or aren’t fussed about staying up till midnight, you can head to the early seating in Salon de Chine for a festive set menu and performances from a live band. Or, if you feel like going all out, you can either join for the later seating (complete with live entertainment, an NYE countdown and a party after midnight) or enjoy the shows at Club Chinois

17 Berkeley St, London W1J 8EA

Top Cuvée & Cave Cuvée

Both Top Cuvée and Cave Cuvée are making NYE simple this year – why agonise over plans when you can head to your neighbourhood wine bar for good food, good drinks and good vibes. At Top Cuvée, the category is French. Expect a four-course French feast with a glass of Champagne on arrival (tickets are £80). Meanwhile, over at Cave Cuvée, the focus is on oysters and fizz. There’ll be oysters (of course), a range of dressings, a festive snack menu, a special wine list and party tunes (tickets are £30). Bon appétit!
