New Years at Firebug

It’s time to say goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017. We don’t believe in charging you just because it’s New Years Eve, so as always Firebug will be FREE ENTRY all night, open super late, and to sweeten the deal we’ve got free bubbly at midnight.

Upstairs on NYE is something of an annual tradition with the return of our three channel silent club night PLUG. Don a pair of wireless headphones, choose your Poison (or Beyoncé, or Blink 182, or Wu Tang Clan) and join us for a night where any music goes. It’s completely free entry, with a £10 deposit for the headphones, returned at the end of the night.

We’re also open as normal every day except New Years Day!
