Located off the ever-hip Upper Street, Angel Central Shopping Centre (formerly known as The N1 Centre) has a vibrant and stylish collection of shops, cafes, restaurants, cinemas and music venues under its roof.
Whether you want to watch the latest movies and share a family-sized popcorn snack, or dine out for two on something more extravagant, Angel Central offers you that choice.
Now that December is in full swing and it’s practically Christmas, it’s time to start reflecting on 2018 and looking forward to the year ahead.
To help you celebrate going into 2019 in style, we’ve decided to put together a small list of NYE activities happening around Islington. Keep reading to find out more.
Angel Central’s resident music venue O2 Academy Islington is holding London’s “Greatest Throwback New Year’s Eve Party”, hosted by some of the best DJs around (including a special BBC Radio guest).
Attendees can expect a night of major throwbacks across all genres of music, with a strong 90s house theme. Get wild with the crazy inflatables and celebrate NYE with an “epic midnight countdown”.
The event starts at 10:00pm and runs all the way until 6:00am, meaning you can literally party all night! For more information, visit the O2 Academy’s website.
Dirty Martini’s Islington location is bringing the party with a special New Year’s Eve event for those looking
to celebrate in style.
The event starts at 8pm, with live DJs keeping the celebrations going until 3am. We recommend getting there a little bit early however, as they will be giving out a free glass of Prosecco for anyone arriving before 9pm.
Dress code is described as “NYE GLAM with a touch of SPARKLE”, so get your best dancing shoes out. If you want to learn more or buy tickets, visit the Dirty Martini website.
If you’re looking for something a bit more relaxed, why not catch a film?
Not every NYE plan has to involve a night of partying, and some people prefer spending it with a bag full of popcorn and a great movie. With hot new releases such as Mary Poppins Returns, Aquaman, Creed 2 and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, you’re almost spoilt for choice!

Start 2019 off the right way by laughing until it hurts at Angel Comedy Club.
Angel Comedy is hosting 2 fantastic NYE events that are set to provide a lot of laughs and a lot of fun.
You can start the night off by enjoying the New Year’s Special at Camden Head, then head on over to The Bill Murray to enjoy the after party! Entry is completely free and everyone (that wants one) gets a free shot at midnight. How can you argue with that?
For more information on these events, visit the Angel Comedy Club website.
Al4bet Street Sounds is bringing the hottest soul, rare groove, funky house and R&B talent to celebrate the end of the year with some great music and great times.
Featuring a line-up of well-known club and radio DJs such as DJ Stretch Taylor, Lil Stevie and DJ Coxy, get down there from when the doors open at 8pm and dance away the night until 3am.
For more information on ticket prices, visit the Alphabet website.
Unleash your inner party animal at the Pour It Up: NYE Special at The Old Queens Head.
Enjoy a night filled with great food, plenty to drink and an all-around good time with a mix of Hip-Hop, R&B, Disco and House music being the soundtrack to your NYE. This special event is open from 8pm onwards and doesn’t finish until 4am, giving you plenty of time to get a dance in.
Oh, and the first 100 people to get in will get a free shot so we recommend arriving a little bit early. If you want to know more, visit their website.
It might seem like we are being a little bit biased, but there is so much to do at Angel Central!
If you’d prefer to spend your night with a romantic dinner for two or meal with the family, then we’ve got just the thing.
We’ve got a wide range of food options available, with the likes of Bella Italia, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Wagamama and Jones & Sons all being open until late.
Even if you are planning on partying the night away, stop by one of our fantastic restaurants and grab some food and drinks beforehand. For menus and opening times, click the Dining tab.
As we’ve already said, this is just a few examples of some of the many fantastic events happening all over North London this NYE. Whatever you end up doing, we hope you have a great time and start 2019 the right way.
We’d like to thank every one of our customers that have shopped at Angel Central over the course of 2018, and look forward to welcoming everyone back in 2019. Happy New Year!
