New Year’s Eve At London’s Sanderson Hotel

What better way to wave goodbye to 2012 and welcome the new year than by attending the Sanderson Hotel’s NYE party?

Finishing off the fabulous Sanderson Sessions live-music programming, the New Year’s Eve celebration this year will include an exclusive performance by Marina and the Diamonds in the hotel’s fabulous courtyard garden.

A decade after its opening, the Sanderson remains one of the country’s top hotel destinations. The hotel’s visionary style and fantastic architecture epitomize a new form of luxury, one that is original, out of the box, yet utterly sophisticated.

The New Year’s Eve party will be taking place in Sanderson’s famous Long Bar, which is known to attract a worldly crowd. Party-goers will be greeted with a glass of champagne upon arrival, and will have access to various delicious food platters available from the hotel’s restaurant, Suka. The restaurant offers a wonderful and authentic Malaysian culinary experience. The party’s venue will extend to the Sanderson’s private Courtyard Garden, a lush Japanese-influenced open-air oasis which exudes tranquility.

At the end of the evening, attendees will enjoy Marina and the Diamonds’ live acoustic set.

The Welsh singer-songwriter rose to fame after reaching the second place on the BBC Sound poll list in 2010. Since then, she has successfully released two albums and gained international recognition. Her sophomore album, Electra Heart, was No.1 in the UK. Marina and the Diamonds, of her real name Marina Diamandis, creates vibrant and accessible pop music. Her music has a certain duality to it, being both lighthearted and heavy. She commands with attitude and amazes with catchy hooks. Marina and the Diamonds’ energetic tracks and ethereal ballads are sure to make New Year’s Eve at the Sanderson an unforgettable night!

Party tickets can be purchased for £75 per person, with exclusive courtyard table reservations available upon request. Doors open at 9.30pm and the celebrations will carry on until 3am.
