Each year, New Year’s Eve promises to be the most fun-filled, jam-packed, awe inspiring night of the year – so why is it always so disappointing?
Often, expectations are dashed by overpriced and overcrowded bars and clubs. After queuing for what seems like a lifetime in your best party frock and braving the harsh December chill, you’re left wondering… was it really worth it?
So this year, why not be impulsive and do something different? There are an array of New Year festivities outside of the UK for you to choose from, including Spain’s party capital, Barcelona.
With restaurants, bars and nightclubs all holding special New Year’s Eve events, they’ll be plenty to do before heading down to the waterfront and bringing in the New Year until the early hours. Huge street parties take over Plaça Catalunya, Las Ramblas and Plaça Reial; and the city’s liveliest nightclubs, including Razzmatazz Club, W Hotel’s Eclipse Bar and Shoko, all compete to host best New Year party around.
But the fun doesn’t stop on New Year’s Eve; parties and parades fill the streets in the first week of January so there’s no rush to return to the dull, rainy reality of the UK.
