Electric Shuffle

Start your New Year's Eve celebrations at Electric Shuffle, where they're hosting a brilliant brunch in Canary Wharf. Head over with your mates to toast with a bottle of prosecco, indulge in bottomless pizza and try your hand at shuffleboard.

For one of the most unique New Year's Eve experiences, take a trip to Shoreditch's prison-themed cocktail bar Alcotraz. Don an orange jumpsuit and smuggle libations past an angry warden and crooked inmates. Fancy a night in? They've also got a brilliant virtual event.

For an epic evening of belly laughs, check out the Backyard Comedy Club in Bethnal Green for an awesome lineup of UK comedians. After a hilarious show, stay for some much-needed music and dancing.

One of Shoreditch's favourite bars Barrio is making sure that this New Year's Eve is one to remember. Not only will you get to two tasty courses to tuck into and bottomless drinks, but also a fantastic night dancing and singing to all your favourite old school tunes.

Get yourself down to some of East London's best watering holes this New Year's Eve because Simmons is throwing one helluva bash. With kooky decor, feel-good tunes from the hottest DJs and an unlimited drinks package (yes, you read that right), you'll be seeing in 2022 in wild style.

If platters piled high with schnitzel, a live Oompah band and brilliant vibes sounds like your idea of a fab NYE party, Munich Cricket Club sounds like the place for you. You'll also get to sip from steins of beer and celebrate at midnight with a glass of bubbles.

@ The Star by Hackney Downs on Fri, 31st Dec 2021 @ 21:00 - 3:00

Head on down to The Star by Hackney Downs to see out 2021, with a very special bash to celebrate the final night of the year. You'll be treated to two floors of tunes from the very best international DJs, so you can get down to funk, electronic, house and disco until well past the stroke of midnight. 

@ Old Street Records on Fri, 31st Dec 2021 @ 20:00 - 3:00

Stop shootin' some b-ball, grab all your homies and head on down to Old Street Records for a Fresh Prince-themed bash this New Year's Eve in East London. DJP will be spinning the best 90s hip hop set for you to dance the night away too. Plus, there's a free drink on arrival to get you boppin'.
