Tuesday December 12th, 2017
Now that your Christmas day festivities have been sorted (hopefully) the next thing to get organised is where to ring in the new year. At South Wharf we are pleased to say that the options on offer are abundant enough to satisfy any taste or preference.
Picking a venue or specific place to frequent on New Year’s Eve greatly depends on what the occasion means to you. Personally, it is a night of reflection on the year gone by and what to look forward to in the year to come, but for others it can mean a bunch of other things.
For many, it’s spending time with close family and friends over a meal and for many others it’s a night of drinks, drinks and more drinks coupled with a New Year’s Eve kiss.
