January is one month that everyone loves to hate. The post-Christmas blues have kicked in, the weather is relentless and we’re all skint after a December of over-indulgence.
But what is the best way to boost your mood in this most remorseless of months? Is it barging past people in the sales to buy a jumper you don’t even want? Is it hitting the gym and going to juice bars? Is it curling up in bed until February? No, it’s none of these. The best antidote for January is a good, old-fashioned PARTY!
That’s right, get your glad rags on, dust off those dancing shoes and check out the best party destinations the UK has to offer below.
Everyone knows that Liverpool has produced some of the greatest music this country has ever heard, but whether you’re a Beatles fan or not, the spirit of the swinging sixties and the party lifestyle are still there for all to see.

Then there’s bars such as Alma de Cuba, which is situated in a magnificent converted church and offers some Latin heat, while Newz Bar is perfect for a bit of celeb spotting.
