Describing Chi’s New Year’s Eve party in a hundred or so words is near impossible: with four dancefloors featuring house, R&B, ’80s, rock, classic tunes and more, it was many nights in one. Notable in the garden was the live PA from UK MC Lisa Maffia and the Ibiza-esque DJ set from Mancunian DJ Natalie Brogan, who played from 1am until 4am. Inside, the musical highlight was Scottie B, who played a smart urban set. Yet we were most enamoured by the midnight balloon drop – if you ever get the chance to see thousands of balloons fall from the sky, take the opportunity. Probably the most excited person on the night, however, was Bulgarian expat and Emirates cabin-crew member Wavor Vlatanov, who won a Time Out-branded Mini Cooper. Lucky man.
