NYE Dining Guide

I always get stuck for places to go on New Year's Eve. I'm still in a chilled mood from Christmas but I want to do something and then I leave it until the last minute and panic. I'm sure I'm not alone in this so here is a guide to NYE dining/events 2015!

The Crazy Bear - from £49.50pp

It's probably one of my favorite bar/restaurants (even if it is a bit pricey) but it ticks all the boxes for me. Elegant, great cocktails, lovely food, great service and cosy downstairs bar/lounge. And for NYE they are doing a champagne reception and a great tasting menu accompanied with live entertainment (burlesque and magic) and music. I've never been to The Crazy Bear for New Year's Eve but if it's anything like it is on a normal day (or better) then I promise you will have a great night and I personally want to go to this one.
I've never been to Proud Cabaret City before but I have been to something very similar by The Black Cat and I really enjoyed it. If you want a fun evening with a bit of glam then this is your thing. From my experience you're paying more for the acts then the food so don't expect the meal to blow you away but the show may! 

Proud Cabaret City describes the night as a three course meal with "burlesque, fire and circus performers plus many more surprises to keep you on the edge of your seat in amazement!" followed by a DJ and dancing until 4am.

The Broadway House - from £60pp

I think this one may be my favorite so far? I've never been here before but by the looks of it the reviews are good and the place looks really nice (first impressions are good) It's not the most expensive which is a plus, you start the night off with a champagne reception, it has live entertainment like cabaret and DJ's and a 4 course meal for £60.

And if you want a bit more you can bump your ticket up to the Dinner & Dance which adds entry to Broadway House & Roof Terraces (which has a silent disco) as well as unlimited house spirits/beer/wine (they also mention about "countless cocktail teapots") and a breakfast feast at 3am! All of the above for £170.

The same as you can have the dinner ticket separate you can also buy the party ticket separate which includes everything apart from replacing the meal with a canapĂ© reception for £150.

Buddha Bar - £250pp

I know I know, it's expensive. But it all depends on what you looking for. They promise a dazzling production with live entertainment and surprises throughout the evening as well as dancers and DJ Stan Kolev. And don't forget the free cocktail on arrival, 4 course dinner and wine pairing as well as champagne for the midnight toast. 

I think the hope is for that price it will be an amazing night, especially as they tease you by saying "surprises throughout the evening" so like anything it's a chance. But on the other hand you are getting the entertainment, free cocktail and champagne as well as the 4 course dinner with wine pairing for £250 and if you look at the normal menu it's not cheap so you can see how it's added up.

Beach Blanket Babylon Notting Hill - from £65pp

This is the only place i've eaten at for New Year's Eve and it was really nice! There wasn't any entertainment like the other event above (and there doesn't seem to be this year either) but if you're looking for that luxury feel this is a good place to start. The decor is slightly different in each room but consistent with the glam/chic look and once you are seated for dinner downstairs it's all very dim lit and romantic so a great place to take your special lady!
