For those of you that would prefer to celebrate New Year’s Eve in the day and stay cozy at home at night, why not go for a brunch at Fight Club?

Enjoy some cocktails at the Cocktail Club’s Lost Vegas event

Remember – whatever happens in Bristol, stays in Bristol. At least at this event it does. Why not head to Vegas this New Year’s Eve at Bristol’s Cocktail Club’s  event. The bar’s atmosphere is great for any celebratory day as their decked-out interior gives a luxe feel, and they always play banging tunes. There will be party anthems, confetti cannons, and non stop dancing til 2am. From £10 a ticket, it not only gives you access to a night full of tunes, but you will also get a free Prosecco! And take it from me, their cocktails are some of my favourite.

Do you love dressing up and fancy enjoying New Year’s Eve in style? Then the Square Club’s disco-themed party will be perfect for you. Think Grace Jones and Cher and Andy Warhol vibes.
