The City’s Most Sensational Celebration - The London New Year's Eve Ball
Quite simply, it’s the biggest party of the year. Join us at the capital’s premier event for a night like no other.
Make like Phileas Fogg and let your imagination sour as you explore our immersive themed event. We will take you from ancient Egypt, via the souks of Marrakech and ornate temples of Japan, to the snowy hills of Kathmandu. An exciting and eclectic mix of the best food, drink and entertainment the world has to offer.
As your guests enter they will be awestruck by the spectacular and ancient sandstone atrium soaring above them. Here ancient Egypt and Sudan meet the hanging gardens of Babylon – a wonder straight out of the ancient world! Above, on the mezzanine, guests are transported straight to Marrakech where hanging lamps, low chaise lounges and sumptuous wall hangings and drapes, evoke the sights and sounds of a Moroccan Riad. Enter our stunning main bar that takes its inspiration from the temples of Japan: adorned with cherry blossom, lanterns and origami cranes and where dancers, acrobats and performers delight the crowds.
At the giant igloo bar, our talented bartenders pour the crowds champagne, cocktails, icy beers, wines and spirits, all illuminated by the Northern Lights. Dinner is called and guests are welcomed into the main dining room and marvel at a riot of colourful hot air balloons in a myriad of colours, shapes and sizes as they float alongside bi-planes. Beautiful table decorations and settings welcome diners to their places as they sit down to a pan-global feast. Between courses, breath-taking acts – Chinese Dragons, Cirque performers, whirling dervishes – all entertain the guests. As the DJ starts his set the dancefloor hots up as the most spectacular Christmas party in town reaches its crescendo.
Dress Code: Our guests love getting dressed up and it really adds to that extra special feeling to the night, so we encourage people to get those glad rags out and go black tie! Lounge suits are of course more than welcome, but absolutely no jeans, trainers or sportswear will be allowed.
Proof Of Age: Guests aged 16 and above are welcome provided they are accompanied by an adult who is responsible for them.
