Champagne corks will be popping at the stroke of midnight in Lincoln on New Year’s Eve and some of the city’s most prominent venues are on hand to help you celebrate in style.
Be transported back in time to the roaring twenties at Revolution – think glitz, old school glamour and flapper girls! Guests can enjoy all of this and more including jazz, dance and sophisticated fashion all for just £4 if you bag yourself an early bird ticket!
Be treated to a champagne and Turkish delight reception at Tokyo’s Narnia-themed celebration. The venue will undergo a full ice palace make-over with Snow Queens hosting the festivities.
The club in the grade II listed building is putting on pyrotechnics, a vodka ice luge, hog roast, confetti cannons and an outdoor winter wonderland. Early bird tickets are £8, £10 standard and £20 for all of you very important people!
Ring in 2012 at Home this year at the Masquerade Ball. They promise New Year’s Eve will never be the same again; make the most of great music, live performers, pyrotechnics and six rooms to sample at Lincoln’s newest club on Park Street. There’s also a top secret live performance of the ultimate anthem by a clubland legend!
Elsewhere you are cordially invited to All That Glitters Is Gold at Sakura on 31st December. The nightclub will transform into a golden wonder from the décor to the drinks menu. Resident DJ Neil Kemp will be bringing you the club classics. Dress code – gold and glamorous!

My flatmates and I had been planning on going to the launch of new student night Billionaire ever since we had first got our hands on the leaflets.
Billionaire is the newest event in town on a Thursday night and is to be held at Lincoln’s new club, ‘Home’. The club had only been open one night before Billionaire was launched so it felt like a privilege to be able to go. From what I could find out from all the posters and flyers advertising the evening this new club had six rooms and eight bars. What was there not to like about this place?
As soon as we stepped inside the building we felt like VIPs. The place was swarming with staff all eager to tell you which new room you should try out first. The place even smelled new!
I didn’t manage to explore all the rooms that were advertised, but one of my favourites was definitely The Terrace: very chic and simplistic. They’d used warm lighting, real fires and small round booth tables which made the room feel quite romantic. You would never have guessed there were 800 odd students in the room below!
The Terrace was appropriately named as the room led on to, well, a terrace! The thought of being outside in the cold Lincoln winter shouldn’t put people off going up here. Again, you would never guess you were at a student night as the smart outdoor furniture and fires scream plush big city club.
My overall favourite room has to be the main dance floor on the second floor. The open-plan layout and high ceilings make the room feel huge, with the centrepiece of the room – a dangling light display – hanging perfectly above the dance floor. The music on this floor was just my taste: a mix of chart tunes and popular classics that got the whole room singing.
There was even a special guest for the night: Lucien Laviscount from Big Brother. He made an appearance around 1.15am before having his photograph taken with people from the VIP area. Unfortunately, and I know it’s not very ‘studenty’, I left shortly after this because of my full day on lectures on the Friday, but I’m annoyed I had to leave because I bet the night had so much more to offer.
I think new clubs like Home and Tokyo are just what Lincoln needs, giving students and locals a much more exciting choice for a night out.
The transformation of the old Annexe building to shiny new bar and nightclub, Home, is almost complete and due to open early in November.
The £3m refurbishment, funded by a London investment house, has been under way for four months and around 70 job vacancies have been created.
The new venue will join a growing number of nightclubs opening in the city including Wahoo and Tokyo.
The club will be made up of four floors which will include four bars, two club rooms and two large outdoor terraces.
The owner, John O’Donoghue, said: “People will be able to expect nothing but the best here at Home. We’ve completely gutted the building from top to bottom including the roof and the outside areas and each room is different has a different feel to it.
“It will offer people a multitude of experiences in one location. It will be a very flexible venue open during the day to shoppers and city workers who fancy a drink and some lunch and then the building will open up at night to cater for the evening crowd and club scene.
“The good thing about such a big space is you can have so many different things going on. It’s about providing a rounded evening of entertainment.”
Home will have live music nights and will be available for private hire and to book for functions.
Here at LLHQ we can’t wait for the opening! Keep an eye on LoveLincoln.co.uk for future updates. Now, where did I put my dancing shoes?
