New Year's Eve at Dishoom

Bombay Vintage Glam

31 December 2019


We're doing an amazing party at Dishoom Kensington where we will welcome guests with pre-booked tables for the Bombay Vintage Glam evening – see below for details. At all other cafés, we will be accepting bookings, but walk-ins are also welcome.

New Year’s Eve at Dishoom is a fancy affair. As night falls, the evening is given over to feasting and celebration as we allow the final hours of the year to drift away with bottles of fizz, exquisite tipples and thaals laden with dishes. We call it Bombay Vintage Glam, and it's always a hoot. For those awaiting 2020 with excitement, gather friends and join us this New Year's Eve. All are warmly welcome.


Come and partake in a most relaxed evening. We'll be serving the usual Dishoom All Day menu, tipples from the Permit Room, and some superstar special dishes from Chef Naved. We heartily recommend them to all!

What's more, there'll be awesome music all night – expect retro tunes and (quite possibly) the urge to dance.

New Year’s Eve 2019 will also be the last service in Dishoom Covent Garden before it closes for a complete redesign. Accordingly – Chef Naved is bringing back some much-loved dishes from the past. Look forward (or backwards?) to Calamari, Soft Shell Crab Masala, Pineapple Crumble and the much-missed Thums Up Flip. All this will be accompanied by a special New Year’s Eve playlist curated by our very talented and very dear friend – Mr Rob Wood. (He’s pretty cool – take a read here to be convinced). 

And we will, of course, do a good old-fashioned countdown to the new year with you all and the parties will go on until 2am! (Except Dishoom Kensington, where it will wrap up at 1am.) We can’t wait. (Walk-in guests are welcome all night – though you can make bookings here.)

Noteworthy celebrations will be taking place in our beautifully Art Deco Kensington café. Glamorous guests can enjoy a feast of feasts from two decadent set menus – one entirely vegetarian – with celebratory dishes such as Lamb Raan Biryani and Paneer Bemisal.

And to the stage we’ll welcome back Kensington’s very own Marine Liners (of Bombay Roxy fame) for an evening of searingly hot jazz. For Bombay Glam 2019, they present their largest ever, most extravagant six-piece lineup, featuring the seductive vocals of Fini Bearman. So, book a table and enjoy foot-tappingly good live tunes from 8:30pm ’til 1am ­– this is not to be missed. It’ll be a magnificent do – a proper way to celebrate the cusping of the new year with friends, family, exquisite tipples and lavish dishes.

All guests are welcome (ney, encouraged) to stay and celebrate with us all night. Your table will be yours until 1am. No exceptions. £80pp non-veg / £75pp veg.
