Tell us a bit about the history of your event.
Lûmé is throwing a party to finish 2019 like a boss. We’ve got a live DJ from Istanbul spinning Motown Soul and golden age hip hop. The NYE event is a nod to the venue’s former life as a burlesque club.
How does your New Year’s event stand out from the crowd?
Guests will be capping off 2019 in style. Alongside a DJ, when midnight strikes, guests will be able to peak the fireworks through Lûmé’s glass atrium.
Tell us a bit about the food and drink spread.
There’ll be Ketel One Peach & Orange blossoms topped up with Capi Soda and Orlando Marzo’s creation, the Tiny Martini, on offer. Marzo was crowned world’s best bartender at the 2018 World Class Bartender of the Year competition, so this will be a treat. There will also be champagne, Prosecco, beer, wine and non-alcoholic options available. Food options include pomme dauphines with sea succulent relish and smoked trout roe as well as oyster escabeche, smoked chicken and pickles on focaccia. And that’s just the start.
Will there be any live music on the night?
Yes! DJ Berkay Mete from Istanbul will be spinning tunes.
What’s the perfect beverage to sound the beginning of 2020?
A crisp glass of champagne, of course.
