New Year's Eve Dinner and Dancing

Enjoy the best of both worlds this December 31st; tuck into a three, four or five course meal and then dance it all off later. Bars across the city are serving up a storm before the clock strikes 2020, with top chefs dishing up all sorts of culinary delights, only to be joined by some of the biggest DJs in the biz to spin soundtracks that'll give you no excuse but to dance it all off until the early hours. With that? We couldn't miss the chance to put together a comprehensive list of some of the best dinner and dancing parties in London this New Year's Eve.
