New Year’s Eve 2015 Parties, Bar & Club nights in Gay London (UK)

So what are you doing on New Year’s Eve?

Here are our listings and ticket availability for New Year’s Eve in London at over 20 venues covering Soho & The West End, Vauxhall, Clapham and East London.

We also have listings for New Year’s Day in London, New York City, and around the world.

Alas, it’s a shorter list than in previous years with Manbar, The Black Cap, Barcode, The Green Carnation and The Edge bar no longer with us.

But on a more positive note, there will still be no shortage of choice across London from some of the city’s most loved club nights including no less than XXL, Horse Meat Disco, Sink The Pink and Push The Button.

We’ll update our pages with late information and ticket availability as the day approaches.
