We're very happy to announce that this year's New Year's Eve party will be at Nambucca, in north London. Recently refurbished with a superb soundsystem and a wonderful wooden dancefloor, Nambucca is perfect for New Year's Eve - 300 capacity, a lovely open layout which means that everyone will feel part of the party, and the perfect shape, a square-ish rectangle not unlike a slightly bigger version of The Phoenix.

Nambucca is at 596 Holloway Rd, London N7 6LB, which is 8-10 minutes walk from both Archway and Holloway Road tube stations and nearer still to Upper Holloway train station. As usual, the night tube will run all night on New Year's Eve. We open at 9pm and close at 5am, and our guest DJ for the evening is Paul Rains of Tigercats and Allo Darlin'. Paul was the guest DJ at our NYE party in 2015 and he did a fantastic job, playing hit after hit, so we're really looking forward to having him back.

Last year, our NYE party was named the number one NYE party in London by Time Out. They said: "This hugely popular night knows there are few better ways to enter 2017 than with a soundtrack of classic sixties soul and the most danceworthy janglepop and shimmering indie tunes."

Our NYE parties always sell out in advance so an advance ticket is advised.

Reviews of How Does It Feel To Be Loved?:

"This hugely popular night knows there are few better ways to enter 2017 than with a soundtrack of classic sixties soul and the most danceworthy janglepop and shimmering indie tunes." - Time Out

“A speakeasy for anyone who suspects that their life is one big Smiths song' - Big Issue
'Absolutely the best night in the whole of the world!” - The Guardian
“Much-loved indie pop institution” - The Quietus
“Legendary indie club” - NME
"How Does It Feel To Be Loved has, since 2002, easily been one of London’s best club nights. Its unpretentious and welcoming nature, often fuelled with everything from Belle & Sebastian and Orange Juice to Tamla Motown and Dusty Springfield, swipes away any negative connotations our capital has for being a cold, brutal and rather heartless place." - Music OMH
"With a tag-line of ‘From the Smiths to the Supremes’ it’s the music policy that shapes How Does It Feel To Be Loved?; indie-pop and soul draw a quietly hip bunch of revelers. Best of all they are just so friendly; no aggro or posturing here – it’s all crooked smiles and handclaps." - For Folk's Sake
"With a decade of great nights under its belt How Does it Feel to Be Loved? is one of London's most enduring and influential underground indie get-togethers." Flavorpill
