New Year's Eve

If you want to make the most of the New Year in Leeds, here’s where to go, what to do and where to be at midnight…

New Year’s Eve in Leeds has been more subdued in the past few years, so you’re all due a big one. Whether you fancy a tasting menu at one of the best restaurants in town, want to paint the town red or have the urge for a dance marathon at a classic club night, the city will not disappoint this year. This ever-growing list of the best NYE nights out in Leeds is your go-to-guide – keep coming back because we’ll add new events as they’re announced.

Brudenell Social Club

Brudenell Social Club

A mere £10 gets you through the door for Brudenell Social Club’s New Year’s Eve Party! Party! event. This is always a hugely popular sell-out event, so bag your tickets early for a night of party music both classic and cheesy – and sometimes both. The party will be fuelled with craft beer and crisps, while on-stage you’ll see established local bands performing incredible tribute sets. Ever wanted to see Pulled Apart by Horses performing Metallica covers while dressed as the band? Of course you have! Games, DJs – what other party do you need in your life as 2022 comes to an end?

Brudenell Social Club, 33 Queens Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS6 1NY.

Revolution Electric Press

Revolution

It’s the biggest party of the year and Revolution are ready to go. They’ve got both a bottomless brunch menu to kick off your day and a huge shindig planned for New Year’s Eve. The epic festive brunch runs all day and costs £30 – you can look forward to everything from avo on toast to the turkey and stuffing burger, alongside a host of bottomless cocktails. If you just want to dance and drink, the party kicks off at 9pm with DJs playing body-moving house, pop, soul and hip-hop classics until 3am. Tickets start from £10.

Revolution, 41 Cookridge Street, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS2 3AW.

Angelica

Embrace 2023 in style at Angelica this year as they host Angie’s Disco. Zoom up to Level 6 and get ready for a night of disco and funky house from Angel Lee and co. The evening commences at 8pm and you can strut your stuff until 2am as a stellar line-up of DJs soundtrack the party. You’ll need to move fast – all the early bird tickets have gone, so get a shake on if you want to enjoy not just music but also classic cocktails. Want an early NYE celebration in Leeds? From 12pm to 3pm, you can kickstart your celebrations with brunch!

Angelica, Level 6, Trinity Leeds, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 6HW.

Malmaison

New Year’s Eve is rarely the cheapest night out, so ears prick up when someone says the word ‘unlimited’. At the swanky Malmaison, £109 gets you a NYE party that rocks from 7.30pm until 1am and includes all-you-can-eat from the buffet, as well as inclusive drinks from beginning to end – we’re talking beers, wine and selected spirits and mixers. Oh, and a glass of fizz when you get there. There’ll be a DJ to get the party going, while the non-dancing wallflowers among you can put the chefs through their paces with a few visits to the buffet.

Malmaison, 1 Swinegate, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS1 4AG.

Bibi’s Italianissimo

Bibis Italianissimo

Get your gladrags on for Bibi’s Masquerade Gala Dinner & Party – come masked and be prepared to eat, drink, party and dance. There’s a matinee sitting for early diners from 12.30pm for £65 per person, but the main event kicks off at 7.30pm until the clock ticks over into 2023. You can get a seat in the cocktail bar for £80 or in view of the stage for £125 – wherever you sit, you’ll get a glass of Prosecco on arrival with canapés, followed by a five-course dinner and live entertainment from house favourites, The Mini Big Band.

Tailors

Tailors

There are two ways to celebrate New Year’s Eve at Tailors in Grand Arcade. The first runs from 4pm to 6pm, it’s a Prohibition-era party, complete with live music and bottomless drinks for 90 minutes with access to their props and costumes – all for £30 each. The second takes you from 8.30pm into 2023 and it promises more of the same but with more art deco-era decadence – think Peaky Blinders meets The Great Gatsby, and yes, with those all-important bottomless drinks thrown in to boot.

It costs £60.50, but means you can get in there from 5pm, enjoy a three-course meal and catch the show at 8pm – Stephen Bailey is headlining.

Once there, you can see off the winter chills with mulled wine, hot cocoa and cider or wave goodbye to 2022 with beer and Prosecco. And don’t worry about the chills from outside the tipi, get down early enough to bag that prime spot around the fire pit under the twinkling lights.
