The most glamorous places to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Chelsea

As 2021 draws to a close, here’s what Chelsea’s hotels and restaurants have got planned for the big night

When it comes to New Year’s Eve, one size most definitely doesn’t fit all. While some people like to bid the year a fond farewell, partying their way into the next, others prefer a more relaxed affair; a break from all the revelry.

However you choose to do New Year’s Eve, let Chelsea be the host. Here’s what the neighbourhood’s most glamorous hotels and restaurants have in store. Expect delicious food, live entertainment and champagne galore. Don’t mind if we do.

The LaLee

Ring in the new year with a sumptuous five-course meal worthy of Lillie Langtry, the legendary Chelsea socialite and beauty who was once resident here. Starters include a zesty LaLee crudo of fresh fish or rich artichoke truffle salad, followed by venison, Dover sole or pumpkin and chestnut pie, with a signature cocktail at midnight and live entertainment late into the night.

Festive afternoon tea is available throughout December, 12pm to 6pm, £60 per person.
New Year’s Eve, 7pm to 2am, £295 per person.

The Beaverbrook Town House

For anyone hankering for a more intimate end to the year, Beaverbrook Town House has the answer – an evening of dining, dancing and cocktails. After an exquisite set menu of authentic Japanese fare – including yellowtail shabu-shabu, toro tartare and Scottish langoustine – guests can repair to the Art Deco splendour of Sir Frank’s Bar, where, as the clock strikes midnight, they can raise a glass of Beaverbrook bubbles or a festive cocktail to the coming year.

New Year’s Eve, 6pm to 2am, £195 per person

Sumosan Twiga

Prepare for an immersive evening of culinary delights and entertainment, including mesmerising ballerinas, talented violinists and an opera rock singer. The exclusive menu promises to be one to remember, with Japanese Wagyu sirloin, duck bao buns and chargrilled lobster. Afterwards, guests can party at their table or head downstairs to the club, where six DJs will have them dancing their socks off into 2022.

New Year’s Eve, 6pm to 3am, from £200 per person

Al Mare

How better to see the year out than with a bang than over an indulgent seven-course menu. For inspiration, executive chef Marco Calenzo turned to his native Italy and will be serving handmade pasta, Alba white truffles, oysters and Wagyu beef – all served to the sounds of a live jazz band.

New Year’s Eve, till late, £225 per person
Al Mare, 1 Cadogan Place, Ground Floor, The Carlton Tower Jumeirah hotel, London SW1X 9PY

Harry’s Dolce Vita

With no set meal for New Year’s Eve, guests can take their pick from the à la carte menu of ‘unfussy’ Italian classics bursting with flavour. The drinks list here features some of the best cocktails in town, including Harry’s Twists, the Infinite Negroni and Italian Botanical G&Ts.

No. Fifty Cheyne

There will be two seatings for dinner on New Year’s Eve at the charming Fifty Cheyne, both featuring Lenoble Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs Champagne. For the Sunset Service, guests are invited to take their seats between 6pm and 7.15pm for a three-course dinner; while guests at the Principle Service will be seated between 7.30pm and 9pm, and see in 2022 over a five-course dinner as part of a decadent soiree that will wrap up at 1am.
