Did you buy into those Mayan prophecies about the world ending on December 21? Did you therefore assume that making plans for NYE was utterly pointless? Do you now find yourself in the slightly irksome position where you are both alive and have zero plans for December 31? Well we're here to help. From a Victorian circus to an art-deco cinema rave-up, we rounded up the best NYE knees-ups that the capital has to offer.

Krankbrothers NYE
From yachts in Ibiza to London railway arches, brothers Dan and Kieren Clancy — a.k.a. Krankbrothers — have built a solids rep for curating awesome parties with acts like Four Tet and Caribou spinning the choons. For NYE they've got a line-up including the revered Andrew Weatherall, as well as Heidi, Matt Tolfrey, and the Krankbrothers themselves.

Belle Epoque Circus Party

For New Year’s Eve 2012, party organisers Belle Epoque will recreate all the glamour and oddity of a Victorian circus, complete with whip-wielding ringmasters, acrobats and showgirls. The perfect opportunity to don a corset and channel your inner circus freak, we think.

Where: Belle Epoque Circus Party, Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane, EC2A 3PQ.

Dollop NYE

Set within the faded glamour of art deco cinema The Troxy, this promises to be one of the best parties around on December 31. House DJ Juio Bashmore, who contributed production to Jessie Ware's Mercury-nominated album, is headlining, and other acts include Krystal Klear and Jackmaster. Simply put, this is the place to go if you fancy dancing into the New Year with the stars of 2013's U.K. music scene.

Where: Dollop, The Troxy, 490 Commercial Rd, E1 0HX
