Harvey Nichols is going back to the 1920s for its Great Gatsby themed New Year’s Eve party, taking place in its Dundrum Town Centre store. And it’s a great week for the announcement, as the official movie posters for the Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby were just revealed this week, featuring the stars against a gorgeous Art Deco background that makes me yearn for some serious antiques shopping. The party at Harvey Nichols will take place in the fabulous first-floor Bar & Brasserie, with a pre-dinner reception followe by a four-course dinner, late-night dancing and Champagne at midnight.

Each guest will also get a goody bag with: (for men) a chocolate cigar, a wooden moustache on a stick, a top hat and a party popper; or (for women) a pack of chocolate cigarettes, a 1920s style cigarette holder, a set of flapper-style beads, a Charleston style band and a party popper. It sounds like such a cute event, and the purrrrfect excuse for you to get out that vintage 1920s-style gown you just don’t get enough chances to wear!

You can book tickets – which start at €85 a head - by calling 01-291 0488 or emailing firstfloor.reservations@harveynichols.com. In my opinion, you could do a lot worse than ring in 2013 in the theme of the Roaring 20s. But tell me: do you have New Year’s plans? It’s only eight days away!
