All socialised-out after that NYE bash? Get away from it all at this elusive speakeasy spot in the city centre. The lack of a sign might prove problematic if you've not been before, but once you've tracked it down you can look forward to the 1st January being packed with burgers, pasta, steak and White Russian cocktails.

A hotel, bar and restaurant packed into one, Rab Ha's has everything you'd need from a New Year's Day recovery sesh. Pop down to the basement eatery where a wealth of seasonal, locally sourced fare should sort your hangover out, and there's a large choice of whiskies if you're planning on going all 'hair of the dog' on us.

Footie fan? The Ark sure know the score this New Year's Day. Line yourself up with a lazy day in front of the big screen, with this friendly boozer showing matches from the Premier League and England across the day. Do you know what would go perfectly with that? A sharing platter of burgers, hot dogs and a couple of pints (if you're feeling up to the challenge).
