We think you might enjoy spending the last evening of the year in an exclusive restaurant. There are many options in Madrid, and they will all be entertaining and a joy for your palate.

Take for example restaurant Clos. This is a trendy restaurant led by chef Marcos Granda and it has a well-deserved Michelin Star.

Clos always prepares an extraordinary menu for this special day, taking into account seasonal produce, high-quality ingredients and preparations with attention to every little detail.

Pez Fuego is another culinary treasure in the Spanish capital. You can find it at Calle Orense in the district of Tetuán.

The excellent quality of their seafood is why people keep coming back here. Taste some of the best Iberian ham at Pez Fuego as a starter, and try the restaurant’s wonderful tender and juicy meat to end the evening.

New Year’s Eve with children in Madrid

One of the options that will be very exciting for every family member is visiting the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium in the neighbourhood of Castellana. The Real Café Bernabéu, its restaurant, will offer you a memorable evening and outstanding dinner, with, of course, twelve grapes during the most important moment of this festive event.

They will prepare a special children’s menu, and the party includes games and gifts.

If your family doesn’t like football, but you still want an evening full of fun and magic, then check out Enigmatium. It is an ideal event to celebrate New Year’s Eve with the whole family. The evening is filled with hours of entertainment by Enigmatium’s professional team.

One of the most emblematic discotheques in Madrid can be found in the city centre. It is called Kapital, and it has seven floors and many different styles of music, so you can choose your favourite ambiance.

Shoko, with two incredible spaces and its select crowd, is one of the other options to make this year’s New Year’s Eve absolutely unforgettable.

Elrow-Fabrik is next on the list, and this location is perfect for parties and events, with its four different spaces distributed over two floors.

You can also opt for the incredible parties that the Shanghai Club organises. They always book national and international DJ’s, and the hours will fly by quickly at this top entertainment venue.

Follow traditions at San Ginés Chocolate Factory

One thing that has become very popular is going to the neighbourhood of Sol to have some of the San Ginés Chocolate Factory’s famous chocolate.

This is the perfect place to enjoy some authentic churros con chocolate, after having survived an absolutely amazing party.

The chocolate factory has taken extra care of seasonal decorations, and its location is perfect, just a few steps from Puerta del Sol. This is, without any doubt in our minds, one of the best places to start the new year.

Autocine Madrid RACE

Going to the drive-in theatre in Madrid is one of the most romantic ideas if you prefer spending the last evening of the year close to your loved one. The drive-in theatre opened for the first time in 2017, and it has since become one of the largest drive-in theatres in Europe. You will find this theatre in the district of Chamartín.

The theatre offers more than 350 places to park your car, and from here you will be able to enjoy some of the best movies. There is a special programme for this occasion, making it a unique way to part with the old year.

Imagine sitting in the comfortable seats of your car, watching a movie right in front of you and having Madrid’s skyline in the background. Can you think of anything better?

Do you have another unique idea for spending New Year’s Eve in Madrid?
