Finishing around 8.30pm, our Kings Place concert is the perfect aperitif for a sophisticated New Year’s Eve in the heart of Kings Cross and Camden.
So, if you’re planning on sticking around after the chamber music and Viennese dances, here are our top local tips to keep you entertained to midnight and beyond.
One of London’s largest restaurants, Dishoom is set in an old transit shed and serves scintillating takes on urban Indian dishes. Based on the vibrant cafes of 1930s Bombay, the railway connection isn’t lacking – the location was once a staging point for goods being transported being London, India and the Empire.
One of our favourite Kings Cross watering holes, the misleadingly-named Somers Town Coffee is a curious mix of traditional boozer, gastro pub and subtle yet glamorous speak easy cocktail bar. A special Christmas menu is available, but make sure you book in advance.
If you’re in the mood for some loud music, swanky drinks and an all-round glamorous party atmosphere, then “Drink, Shop, Do” is the place to be on New Year’s Eve. Located only a couple of streets down from Kings Cross station, it shouldn’t be hard to miss; just follow the glitter.
If you have a rather strong sweet tooth then you’ve probably, at some point or another, fantasised about visiting Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory. Well the bad news is, it’s still not a real place. But the good news is the Electric Ballroom are hosting an extravagant “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” themed New Year’s Eve party. They’re going all out with sweets and candy galore, and a huge chocolate fountain as the centrepiece.
This Camden cocktail bar is hosting a South African themed New Year’s party with acrobats, fire breathers and other wild entertainers bouncing around. It’s also serving dinner up to 10pm.
Our Viennese Celebration – with a Twist! features music by Mozart, Haydn, Schubert and others.
