Auld Lang Syne at the Lanesborough? 2013 just got classier.

Turn to the fashion pages of LUSSO 28… like what you see? Let us introduce you to The Lanesborough. If you’re not already familiar with the stunning Knightsbridge hotel, you really should be. One of the world’s most exclusive addresses, The Lanesborough is a residence befitting royalty – a sophisticated and luxurious abode with a winning traditional splendour.

This Christmas, The Lanesborough invites you to join in celebrating New Year in magnificent style for the ultimate winter getaway. With the hotel’s stunning surroundings – Hyde Park is, literally, on its doorstep – the roaring open fire, and impressive decorations, we’re genuinely considering leaving our families and spending the festive season in solitary opulence.

Monday 31st December will see the New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner Dance (dress code: Black Tie, naturally). Apsleys, the Lanesborough’s restaurant, will host the event, with three-Michelin starred chef, Heinz Beck creating a five-course gourmet dinner especially for the occasion. A live band will play the best of The Beatles (Alan Partridge’s favourite album, fact fans) as you dance the year away on a superb selection of fine wines and champagnes. Speaking of champagne, the New Year will be toasted at midnight with a glass of Tattinger as you gaze up at the firework display through the glass ceiling. Perfect.
