With Christmas just around the corner it’s time to start planning for the biggest night on your social calendar… NYE! Whether you want to dance the night away or see in 2017 with great food, here is a list of what’s happening right on your doorstep in Bournemouth.
Your favourite church based club is bringing you ‘Cirque de Soir’, a combination of a masquerade ball and a messy New Year’s Eve party! With DJs, decorations and drinks you can be sure this will be the best way to start 2017 in style. With artistic performers and chilled champagne on hand, how could it possibly disappoint?
Bournemouth’s student union nightclub is hosting ‘Enter and Drumfunk’. If drum and bass is your thing then this is the New Year’s Eve celebration for you, featuring resident artists DJ Marky, The Prototypes, Skydro and many more. Tickets are only £10 so this is sure to be a great event for any music fans which won’t break the bank.
The Lost Paradise
If the cold and wet weather has got you dreaming of jumping on a plane to a nice, hot tropical island then you should celebrate your New Year’s Eve at The Lost Paradise. Based in the centre of Bournemouth, the bar is packed full of jungle plants, carved coconut cocktail cups and totem poles – almost like actually being on holiday without the cost of the real thing…
Cameo & Myu Bar
If you’re a serial Cameo goer or have never even stepped inside then what is stopping you heading there this NYE? Round up your mates and hit Cameo for Chart, Dance and EDM music. If R&B and Hip Hop are your thing then head down to the Basement or stick to Myu Bar for House and Garage. Vinyl won’t let you down either with a night of Pop music through the decades. Special guest Lethal Bizzle is set to perform too so get your tickets ASAP!
Koh Thai Tapas
If you’re looking for a more chilled out end to the year, perhaps spent with friends and loved ones then a meal at Koh is sure to do the trick. Choose to spend £30 or £35 per person and enjoy a feast of Thai delights ranging from Chicken Satay to Phad Thai noodles. With a selection of cocktails to choose from and a glass of bubbly at midnight, this is sure to be a night to remember.
