Marbella is a place just made for celebrating New Year’s Eve in style. The options are many, from inviting friends and family to enjoy the mild temperatures at your Costa del Sol home to venturing out to a very wide range of dining and nightlife options. Quite apart from the many golf clubs, hotels and restaurants that offer a wonderful dinner and dance experience, here are some of our favourites…
La Sala, at the point where Puerto Banús and Nueva Andalucía meet, offers a lively atmosphere with good food, live music and a cosy winter lodge décor specially dressed up for the occasion. It’s a local favourite, though Breathe just across the roundabout is another excellent venue with an added touch of refinement and style.
The latter can also be had on the famous Golden Mile, where new venue The Boho Club rivals Breathe in its sophistication, and the fantastic choice of restaurants within the Puente Romano’s ‘La Plaza’ forms a wonderful prelude to seeing the New Year in at this iconic hotel’s classic nightclub, La Suite.
Old Town revelry
Or you could join the good-natured revelry in the historic centre of Marbella, where a first-class choice of quaint eateries awaits before all head out to the Plaza de Naranjos for the traditional count-down, accompanied by a glass of champagne and 12 grapes to be washed down with each chime of the clock.
It’s the Spanish way of ensuring good luck in the New Year and getting 2020 off to a good start!
