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? For £30, Fight Club offers bottomless pizza and prosecco for two hours – a steal if you ask me. If you fancy mixing a bit of competitive spirit into your brunch, you can also opt to add another hour to throw some darts. It’s certainly an exciting and unique way to spend the last day of 2021 with your mates.
Enjoy some cocktails at the Cocktail Club’s Straight Outta 2021 event

To experience the best of both worlds where you can enjoy some cocktails and also bust out some moves, check out the Cocktail Club’s Straight Outta 2021 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. A £10 ticket not only gives you access to a night full of tunes which you will not be able to resist dancing to, but you will also get a free cocktail! And take it from me, their cocktails are some of my favourite.

Located in a large venue with special effects as well as ultimate speakers playing classic and new songs, a night out at The Fleece never disappoints. Grab your ticket now for £10 – just don’t blame me when you wake up on New Year’s with a sore head, the memorable night will be worth it.

For £50, the fiery 1920s night will be filled with cocktails, champagne, food, showgirls, swing bands, magicians, stilt walkers and fire performers. What’s more, you can even book a VIP room where you can enjoy a cosy candlelit lounge with your mates at no extra cost.
Watch the fireworks at 12:00 on the dot at Clifton Suspension Bridge
Although Bristol offers a variety of distinctive ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve, you can’t beat a classic (and cheap!) night of watching the fireworks as the clocks strike 12. So, get your coats and fluffy socks on as there are a number of different locations showcasing the beautiful fireworks and Bristolian sites. If you are celebrating New Year’s Eve in Bristol, you certainly can’t beat going to the Clifton Suspension Bridge. Broom Hill is also a great option as a host of local businesses will be getting their trucks out to sell hot food and drink to keep you warm.
