It’s a perennial conundrum: where do we go to celebrate the new year. And with next week marking the start of a new decade, it’s only right that we do it in proper style. We have picked some of the best New Year’s Eve parties in town... with something for everyone, whatever your taste...

Reggaeton NYE Party; The Bullingdon, Cowley Road

Celebrate New Year’s Eve with the deep bass and grooves of reggaeton as the Bullingdon throws the ultimate fiesta to bring in 2020.

Expect tunes from Daddy Yankee, Don Omar , Wisin y Yandel, Ozuna, Nicky Jam, Zion y Lennox, Shakira, Arcangel, Tego Calderon, Tito El Bambino, Plan B, Farruko, J Alvarez, J Balvin, Maluma, Enrique and CNCO.

There’ll also be a midnight confetti drop, party decor and visuals.
