Near Year’s Eve in London should always come with a warning that you may end up stuck in Waterloo station as the clock strikes 12 (yes, I’ve been there). But if 2017 is the year of civilised celebrations then what better way to spend it than close enough to see the fireworks but far enough away that you don’t have to spend all day on the 31st reserving your spot?

Enter Smith & Wollensky, and their Frank and Dean’s New Year’s Eve party; 3-courses, flowing Champagne, live music and fireworks – a winning combination. Music is courtesy of an 8-piece band, transporting guests to fabulous Las Vegas with Rat Pack classics and Tom Jones favourites. Guests can choose to dine from the a la carte menu if they wish, but the set menu has been designed especially and is suitably special for the occasion. After dinner, guests who have opted to can head up on to the roof of the Adelphi Building for panoramic views of the city and an enviable position above the (cold) crowds on the streets below for the main event as Big Ben gets to work.

Smith & Wollensky are giving away two tickets to their New Year’s Eve party, as well as a one night stay in the luxurious Apple Apartments on the Strand. The 3-course set menu is included in the prize, along with fine wine pairings and tickets to watch the fireworks themselves, with Perrier-Jouët Belle Époque Champagne throughout the firework display. The value of this prize is a cool £1,250.
