The New Year is right around the corner, and as much as we can't believe how fast this year has gone by - we're more than excited for 2018! During this busy time of year, preparing for the holiday season and starting to think of the New Year's resolutions for a brand new year (and a fresh start!), we can't forget about those New Year's celebrations to ring in 2018.
Whether it's some quality time with family at home, watching fireworks on TV, or having the best time at an extravagant ball, or an elegant party with close friends and loved ones - having the best time celebrating the New Year is the most important thing! Not to forget, also looking your best in your favourite party outfit and of course beautiful lingerie beneath.
We have rounded up the best things to do on NYE in London, Paris, and New York City!
New Year’s Eve in London just wouldn’t be the same without the firework display above the Thames - always spectacular, always show-stopping – and always a nightmare to get a decent view of if you’re fighting for a place along the riverside! There's a choice of three packages when booking a spot on a three-hour boat cruise, with front-row seats ready for when Big Ben chimes Twelve!
The South Bank Centre's New Year's Eve Party offers a stylishly retro way to see in the New Year. Pop-up venues inside the Royal Festival Hall, jive dance classes and OTT cocktails from the TIKI Bar should all help you time travel from 1920s-1990s. The dress code is - pick a decade and dress glamorously!
You can also stop by The Torch Club for big band sounds from the Alex Meedham and his 18 piece orchestra and if you're feeling extra flush, book in some New Year's eve dining at The Clore Ballroom 'cabaret club'. The jewel in the Hall though, is the terrace: if you're lucky enough to squeeze your way through, you'll be able to ring in 2018 while watching an explosive fireworks display over the Thames.
Join Slow Alfie and his crack team of disco dollies in the art deco glamour of the Eventim Apollo – made yet more wonderful by the addition of a bouncy castle and a giant ball pool. Come midnight, there'll be confetti cannons, indoor fireworks and Auld Lang Syne from the belly of the venue's own Compton organ. Hip-hop and R&B rock the main room while Burn Down The Disco and Feeling Gloomy champion indie, rock and roll and soul in the circle bar.
What could be better than celebrating the New Year looking over the most stunning views in Paris! This NYE party is located just in front of the famous Tour d’Argent; one of Paris’ oldest restaurants, a stones’ throw from the Quai de Tournelle, and Paris’ historic center, the Ile St Louis. The riverboat enjoys an extraordinary location with exceptional panoramic views of the most beautiful and famous gothic cathedral in the world, Notre Dame de Paris.
Indulge in an evening unlike any other, surrounded by the flowing waters of the seine river, in the heart of the most historical neighbourhood. See in the New Year with endless confetti, streamers, colourful party goodies, smiles and laughter!
Enjoy your New Year's Eve night in the most extravagant and extraordinary setting at the Palais Maillot. The enchanting character, contemporary baroque design and the pure extravagance of this special venue will ensure that you spend a truly unforgettable New Year’s Eve. There will be a large dance floor, great music, a Gourmet Buffet, drinks, performers, party goodies and lots more at this not-to-be-missed Masquerade Ball!
While at any other time of the year a night at The Moulin Rouge might seem like a bit much, on New Year’s Eve the flashing lights, high kicking, and extraordinary amounts of fake tan are somehow perfectly suited to the tone and energy of the holiday. The evening includes the famous cabaret show, a gourmet meal – featuring caviar, lobster, and champagne – dancing, and music, and a special one-night-only, post-midnight performance. Plus everyone will leave with a surprise gift.
With a choice of three different dinner menus, don't miss your chance to see the world-renowned showgirls and French Cancan dancers strut their stuff on the Moulin Rouge's historic stage!
This iconic celebration is not only a New York tradition, it’s a global phenomenon. An estimate of one million revelers will flock to the land of LED screens to witness one of the best NYC events in December, which includes star-studded New Year's Eve concerts, the inevitable surprise engagement and a chance to be featured on live television.
There's no better place to be than Times Square on NYE. Ring in the New Year in style, with a 5-hour premium open bar and some fancy champagne at the W Hotel New York. Feast your eyes on the newly designed décor and dance the night away to the sweet sounds blasting out of the world-class sound system by the top NYC DJs.
Different from the usual clubs, The Lately strikes the perfect balance between exclusivity and all-embracing laissez faire. Their beautiful rustic, warm wood-panneled barroom is the perfect place to mingle over mixed drinks this NYE. For two different vibes in one night, get a Blue Light VIP ticket to also party in a glamorous '70s inspired spot, with pastel pink couches, gold pottery décor and vintage magazine covers as artwork. Either way, you're in for 20s tinted night, filled with genuine smiles and elegance.
We hope these help you with your festive party plans!
