New Year’s Eve: Mirage at Bala Baya

Inspired by the sites and sounds of Tel Aviv, Bala Baya launched in January, 2016, in the Old Union Street Arches, Southwark. This is the first stand-alone project from Chef Eran Tibi, formerly of Ottolenghi, Made In Camden, and Zest@JW3. Eran’s vibrantly progressive cuisine is rooted in his mother’s Middle Eastern home cooking and generations of baking expertise. Under the concept of Desert Bauhaus, with interiors designed by the award-winning architect Afroditi Krassa, Bala Baya plays on the essence of Tel Aviv: a breezy coastal city, painted with modernist architecture, with a unique, sun-kissed free spirit.

New Year’s Eve calls to all desert wanderers: Bala Baya are inviting you to experience the mirage of the year. Join them for an evening of feasting, tribal beats and exotic desert vibes as they bring the heat to the heart of London until the clock strikes 12… and beyond.

They will be hosting three dreamy dinner seatings:
5:30pm – 7:00pm – For you early birds (£50pp)
8:00pm – 10:30pm – For those who want to feast then dance the night away (£65pp)
11:00pm onwards – For you party animals (depending on capacity, get a ticket quick)

Save your spot with a £10 entry ticket that includes a glass of Champagne Gazoz per ticket. Check the link out below and grab yours now (limited availability).

Their Special NYE feast will include – a whole hunk of beef charred to perfection and finished with stewed fig jus, fluffy wild mushroom & confit garlic Tunisian bread and double roasted potatoes with black truffle & Taleggio. You just dribbled didn’t you. (A vegetarian/pescatarian menu will also be available – please specify this when you book!).

If you want to leave to watch the fireworks at Southbank and then wander back into the warmth for drinking, dancing and shenanigans? No problem! Just let them know, they’ll keep your space at the party reserved.

With two floors, two bars, exclusive cocktails and DJ Jesse Vickerie back on the decks until the early hours of the morning – it’s sure to be the hottest night of the year.

Book your ticket here.
