It is the last day of the year when memories of it slipping away and hopes and aspirations for the coming one all fuse together, putting us in a mood to live it up and ring in the new year in style. If you want to party till the wee hours of the morning, here are some options.

Grappa, Shangri-La’s Eros Hotel

Grappa, the hip bar at the hotel, will have a DJ and live music so those who like their dancing shoes, can bring in the New Year stomping on the dance floor. They also have a lovely alfresco setting and you can make your resolutions for 2019 with a clear head as you enjoy the chill in the air. Be assured that the drinks are going to be excellent.

Address: 19, Ashoka Road, Janpath, Connaught Place, New Delhi

The Leela Ambience Convention Hotel

A brilliant DJ, dancing, drinks, live counters and believe it or not – Old Delhi specialties – if this isn’t your idea of a perfect New Year’s Eve, we wonder what it is? The best part is that you do not have to drive back home as you get to stay over and leave after breakfast so that the first day of 2019 starts on a good note.

Address: 1, CBD, Maharaja Surajmal Road, near Yamuna Sports Complex, New Delhi

Hong Kong Club

Get ready for an evening full of music. As the Club hosts the Euphoric Affairs 2019, you will hear some great numbers being belted out. There is Rudi on the Saxophone, Rebeca on the piano, Julio the guitarist, Aurelio the Percussionist, Eva the DJ and Laganza the body art ballet artist. Phew! Now that’s quite a line up for the last day of the year. Needless to say the Cantonese cuisine will leave you wanting more.

Address: Andaz Hotel, 1, Northern Access Road, Aerocity, New Delhi

Lock & Key

This won’t be your usual New Year’s Eve party because it will carry you back nearly a century. After all, the theme is The Great Gatsby Gala. Go back in time as you dance to the tunes of DJ AV while the live band Emenes keeps you entertained and of course don’t forget to pick an outfit to match the era. There’s a live seafood counter and some good winter cocktails. They don’t want you to drink and drive so you can stay over at the Atara hotel and go back the next day. Home pick and drop is also available.

Address: 1st Floor, Cross Point Mall, DLF City IV, Sector 28, Gurugram

Worried about where to leave the kids when you go out partying on the last evening of 2018? Why not just take them along and make sure it is a memorable occasion for them as well?

Unusually, the New Year’s Eve carnival here makes it possible to bring in the New Year as many would prefer it – together as a family.
