Roaring 20’s New Year’s Eve Party!

100 years later and we’re back in a prohibition state – All alcohol is outlawed and you’ll have to start the new year 100% sober – word on the street is that the Bartenders at The Bear in Esher want to host the best New Year’s Party around and they’ve been secretly brewing their own liquor in our Hotel rooms ready for any secret sales to Bear party goers – You’ll need to whisper the password Don’t let the guards catch you or you’ll face serious jail time.

For those who don’t need secret service over the bar there’s plenty of room for dancing along to our Jazz music, and DJ that joins us later in the night. We’re expecting full dress up, lots of cigars and mustaches – so don’t miss out on the number one event that brings the Roaring 1920s 100 years into the future and right on your doorstep.
