According to “The Beatles Diary Volume 1: The Beatles Years” by Barry Miles, The Beatles (minus John, who was on holiday in Morocco) spend New Year’s Eve at Cilla Black’s flat on Portland Place.

From What’s On – Seven famous Marylebone singers – Marylebone Village:

Cilla’s apartment on Portland Place, bought during the first flush of her success as a pop star, became something of a party venue as London began to swing. It was also handily positioned right near the BBC building: perfect for her nascent TV career. One New Year’s Eve party at Cilla’s place in the late 1960s was attended by the Beatles and the Stones. Ringo Starr was sent out to find a piece of lucky coal, but no one could hear the buzzer when he returned and he was left out in the freezing cold for two hours.

"With greatly expanded text, this is the most revealing and frank personal 30-year chronicle of the group ever written. Insider Barry Miles covers the Beatles story from childhood to the break-up of the group."

We owe a lot to Barry Miles for the creation of those pages, but you really have to buy this book to get all the details - a day to day chronology of what happened to the four Beatles during the Beatles years!
