Travel back to the 1940s in this London Underground-themed lair. Pretty much everything about this event is an antiquated portrayal of the era, with ‘rations’ for dinner and on-theme cocktails, as well as a dazzling performance by wartime harmony trio the Hotsie Totsies. Enter through an air-raid shelter in a tube station into a world long left behind. A unique New Year’s event – where else could you dine on ‘Ham Grenades’ and sip on a ‘Vera Lynn’?

For the second year running, the Lanesborough is working with Moët & Chandon to transform itself into a high-end house-party venue. The centrepiece is a nightclub in the hotel’s grand Celeste dining room, where a DJ will be playing classic club anthems while guests enjoy canapés created by Michelin star-winning chef Steeven Gilles. Downstairs in the Garden Room, cigar sommeliers will be on hand to advise you on the best Cubans to help you bring in the New Year. Luxurious and costly, this party will see you rubbing shoulders with many of London’s glitterati.
