You might now have Christmas all planned out, but perhaps you're still undecided about the biggest night of the year? With 2020 looming large on the horizon, any turn-of-the-decade revelry needs to be uniquely memorable.

So for an unforgettable way to see out 2019, stay and dine in style at the renowned St James's Hotel and Club. Linger over a complimentary bottle of Champagne in your remarkable room and experience the Michelin-starred Seven Park Place on New Year’s Eve. You’ll be treated to a delicious seven course seasonal dinner by Head Chef William Drabble, including scallops with truffle and turbot in Champagne. Work it off on New Year’s Day with a brisk walk in St James's Park; you’ll feel fully revitalised for the start of the new decade.

To give the year a grand send-off, you can't really beat The Ritz, long considered one of the best places in town for a sensational New Year’s Eve. Over the course of the year’s final evening let yourself indulge at The Ritz’s black-tie dinner accompanied by a regimental marching band, a lone piper and an enchanting firework display to light up the garden; that’s a one of kind evening.

Fancy arriving swathed in a little glamorous mystery? We advise you greet the next decade in spectacular style at Quaglino’s Masquerade. Don your masks and make your way down its world-famous staircase to a stunning three-course signature menu, followed by late-night live music, DJ and dancing - all before the big countdown at midnight.

And for a sophisticated soirée with panoramic views, we know just the place. Bubbles & Bowties at The Trafalgar St James is high up on a rooftop adorned with winter chalets, blankets and heaters. Here you'll witness the capital's most exciting views of the NYE fireworks, as well as enjoy free-flowing Champagne, nibbles, a buffet and a live band. Or explore The Trafalgar St James's new cocktail bar; Rockwell. Transformed into a tropical paradise, with delicious dishes, cocktails, an acrobat duo and even a snake charmer.

Happy New Year and have a wonderful break. We’ll see you in 2020.
