New Year’s Eve Parties in London12 December, 2010
If you’re looking for a New Year’s Eve party in London with a real Latin flavour there’s plenty of choice. This is no surprise considering how many Latinos and Latin Americans currently live in London, plus the fact that bringing in the New Year surrounded by baile funk or samba, drinking caipirinhas or mojitos and feeling that summer vibe during the coldest time of the year, is just plain appealing. So, the choices for bringing in 2011 are as follows.
Tropicalista Party at Rich Mix
Arranged by Movimientos, who have been putting on some of the most interesting Latin American nights this year, and Hackney Globe Trotting, this should be a storming night. Providing entertainment are A.J. Holmes and the Hackney Empire and Latin Dub Soundsystem, along with DJs including Cal Jader and Russ Jones. This party should offer a good mix of rhumba, reggae, African vibes and all things tropical.
We currently have a competition to win a pair of tickets for this event. Check it out HERE.
£15 adv | £20 on the door
NYE Party at Guanabara
As well as a banging party featuring Minibloco and London School of Samba for a truly Brazilian NYE experience, Guanabara are offering dinner options on the night, hoping to take any confusion out of making plans for the night. If anyone has been to Guanabara before they know the atmosphere here will be great and the entertainment even better. This is a highly-recommended night.
£60 party, drink and dinner | £30 party and drink
Batmacumba New Year’s Eve Carnival
Another night of Brazilian carnival bliss with Tribo offering a high-octane mix of Brazilian and tropical sounds, and Batmacumba throwing out a few classics themselves.
£10 early bird | £15 adv
Reveillon 2011 Live Secousse NYE at Favela Chic
More of an African flavour here with West African soucousse, South African kwaito and Angolan kuduro joining Brazilian baile funk for a night of blissful dishevelment.
£20 adv | £50 adv with dinner
Sam and the Womp’s New Year’s Eve Hat Party! at Camino
A slightly left-wing choice here, with Sam and the Womp offering gypsy dubstep, whatever that is, and plenty more. Crucially, Senor Miguan will be making an appearance with a set of boogaloo, samba and Latin beats to make sure you get your Latin American fill. This party requires a hat, and is at Camino, so expect one heck of a party!
£20 for party | £60 for party, drink and dinner
