Get your flap on at the 1920’s themed party at The Hilton or, The Old Ship Hotel is putting on a gala dinner dance or you could dine in the sky with Brighton’s i360 NYE event.

For those less inclined to elbow jogging the new year in, wine bars offer a degree more sophistication, not to mention a better selection of wine. To avoid a washout New Year’s Day, Plateau’s wine list is jam-packed with organic low sulfur wines ideal for hangover dodging. L’Atelier du Vin in the North Laine and Seven Dials has some seriously knowledgeable staff to guide you through their extensive wine list and Ten Green Bottles boasts the perfect location if you are heading on to party past midnight.

The Restaurant at Drakes

Brighton's best restaurants

If you want to skip the party altogether, why not enjoy a (fairly) low key dinner out before heading home to watch the fireworks on the sofa? The Salt Room and sister restaurant The Coal Shed are both offering deliciously indulgent set menus this New Year’s Eve. Are you a bit of a wine fanatic? Head to Hotel Du Vin for their dinner offering to see in the new year. We also love the sound of pumpkin, peanut and chilli parcels on The New Club’s NYE menu.

Hurrah for a beautiful wine glass, a red served at just the right temperature, and staff who not only know their Pinotage from their Syrah but who love to share that knowledge and recommend something that could may well knock your socks off.
