2023 is nearly over, and if, like most of us, you’re still wondering what to do or where to celebrate, we’ve got you covered. From mansions in London to cobbled streets in Glasgow and beaches in Rio, there’s something for everyone this New Year’s Eve. Whether you’re two-stepping, toasting, or trying something completely new, check out what’s happening and where below.
London hosts a secret New Year at the Mansion
Widely rumoured as one of the most sought-after invites of the season, New Year at The Mansion is a festive event featuring three dance floors, each with a separate DJ (so every music taste is catered for) for a long night of partying into 2024. Alongside dancing, there’s street food and an extensive drinks list at the bar, but the best part is that the venue’s a secret. You won’t know where you’re going until 48 hours before, adding to the anticipation of one of London’s most allusive NYE bashes. Find tickets to New Year at the Mansion here.
Paris’ most eyebrow-raising destination is bringing in 2024
Dinner and a show has never been more eventful than at Paris’ most controversial night out, Crazy Horse. The iconic cabaret venue, which is famed for its avant-garde performances, elaborate costumes, and spectacular sound and light shows, welcomes you to sip champagne, eat caviar, and enjoy the cabaret.

Berlin hosts The Art of NYE Party in a bunker
Berlin, the city known for its crazy club venues, is hosting an all-inclusive New Year’s celebration in a historic venue complete with two dance floors, a live pianist, complimentary food and drinks, and more. The venue itself conceals bunker facilities and impressive halls, which offer a panoramic view of the city’s fireworks at Alexanderplatz from both Volkspark Friedrichshain and Greifswalderstraße.

Take a City Cruise around the rivers of New York
If there’s one thing New York has on lock, it’s skylines, and why not remind yourself how good it is this New Year’s Eve. City Cruises is hosting a New Year’s Eve dinner cruise, which will allow guests to soak up the skyline illuminated by festive fireworks. The three-hour experience will transport attendees along the East and Hudson rivers as they enjoy a three-course dinner, open bar and a live band.

Hit up Placa Espanya in Barcelona for the city’s best fireworks
Come midnight, city skies worldwide will go mad with fireworks displays, and Barcelona is no different. Head down to Placa Espanya and see the New Year at the heart of the Catalonian capital, where, unlike other cities, you can expect mild temperatures and beaches just a short distance away. There’s no need to purchase tickets, as Placa Espanya is open to everyone! Just be sure to arrive early if you want a good spot.
Rio’s NYE party at The Copacabana is one of the wildest in the world
If you want to see in the new year with positive vibes, doing it on the beach is a great place to start. In Rio, Copacabana Beach is hosting one of the city’s biggest and best parties, completely free of charge. Expect live bands, DJs and a load of bars and food stalls. With fireworks exploding into the night sky in one of the most picturesque locations in the world, we can think of worse ways to celebrate.
Glasgow turns Ashton Lane into one massive street party
If there’s a place that knows how to have a good time, it’s Glasgow, and for New Year’s Eve, it is turning Ashton Lane into a massive street party with venues along the cobbled streets taking part in the event. You can book two-hour stays at Vodka Wodka, either inside or in its legendary beer garden, or purchase a ticket to the street party itself. If this is a bit of you, find more information here.
