30th birthday in early January - where will still feel buzzy

Turning 30 on the first Saturday in Jan (the worst time). I’d like to book a dinner somewhere for about 15 people and then want to go somewhere after for drinks / dancing where more people can join us. I know early January most places will be fairly dead but any suggestions of fun locations. I’m a bit over places like Archer Street. I thought about booking the dinner at somewhere like The Pelican but wouldn’t know where to go out in Notting Hill after that. Or Camberwell Arms followed by somewhere? Or somewhere in Soho or South London? Any ideas!?


The Camberwell Arms is a great shout. We’ve just done this party restaurants feature which might offer some inspo?
