15 Dec Celebrate New Year In Style
A run through of New Year Eve parties and events happening across London: for an immersive experience, Bermondsey’s Village East will be hosting a ‘Murder on the Bermondsey Express,’ including a four-course meal; whilst the ultimate after party will be taking place at The Sun Tavern in Bethnal Green, who are hosting a Studio 441 party with tunes from Blondie, The Ramones & The Strokes. For a touch of decadence, the splendid restaurant and bar China Tang at The Dorchester will be serving a celebration menu, with courses of Peking Duck and Wagyu Beef, and a performance from the London Swing Orchestra. Elsewhere, Canova Hall and Martello Hall will be doing bottomless pizza from 7pm, and Christopher’s in Covent Garden will see 2019 in with style, with an all-American feast and complimentary champagne.
MURDER ON THE BERMONDSEY EXPRESS AT VILLAGE EAST
All aboard at Village East for Murder on the Bermondsey Express for an immersive evening of glamour and mystery, book a table at the ‘restaurant carriage’ for an indulgent four-course meal, including a glass of bubbly on arrival and the chance to get stuck in and gather evidence throughout the evening (£55). If sipping cocktails is a more preferable way to celebrate the occasion, reserve a seat at the ‘bar carriage’, and enjoy themed tipples based on the suspect’s weapon of choice.
This New Year’s Eve, The Sun Tavern are bringing the sounds of New York City to Bethnal Green for Studio 441. Expect to ring in the new year listening to Blondie, Talking Heads, The Ramones, The Strokes and LCD, along with The Sun Tavern’s signature cocktails. Celebrate with tipples from their new winter menu, featuring The Landlord with white rum, white port, pineapple rosemary syrup and citrus & tonic water and the Easy Peeler made with Bathtub gin, nonino amaro, akavit, clementine sherbet & cranberry.
For free entry and a complimentary bottle of prosecco at midnight, book a table before 8.30pm. Late partiers will be charged £5 entry.
This year, Cantonese specialists China Tang at the Dorchester will be hosting the most glamorous New Year’s Eve Party in town. Paying homage to the romance of pre-war Shanghai, there will be an indulgent celebration tasting menu, with dishes including a Steamed Crab Dumpling with Salmon Roe Caviar, Slow-Braised Wagyu Beef, and China Tang’s signature Peking Duck.
A vegetarian menu will also be available, with an optional wine pairing also on offer to complement the special meal. The evening will be completed with the ever-stylish London Swing Orchestra providing a sophisticated live music soundtrack.
Both Canova Hall (Brixton) and Martello Hall (Hackney) will be open all day and all night on 31st December to celebrate, serving their famous Bottomless brunch during the day. From 7pm this will become an extra special NYE bottomless pizza, sharing plates and bottomless drinks for two hours, for £70pp, with live music until 3am!
The end of the year is rapidly approaching, and as ever, Christopher’s will be celebrating the New Year in style! Their much-loved À La Carte Menu will be available all evening, with those joining after 8:30pm receiving a complimentary glass of champagne (with a minimum spend of £110 a head).
Enjoy signatures including Maryland Crab Cake; Grilled Asparagus; Grilled Lobster and the insta-famous Chocolate Brioche French Toast in their beautiful dining room, with its sweeping views of Waterloo Bridge. Never one to miss out on the action, the art-deco Martini bar will also keep drinks flowing until 3am, to ensure that 2019 is indeed seen in properly!
