2019 Coral Gables New Years Eve

Happy New Year!

Well, we will be saying that shortly – so… it’s time to prepare in advance! If you are looking for fun places to celebrate the new year in Coral Gables, then you’ve come to the right place! Listed in no particular order, I tried to get a list of something for everyone! Let me know if there’s something else you’d like to see!

A Zen Approach

  • Start with a clean slate through mental, emotional, physical and spiritual journeying with Ali Kaplan. Let go of the “old you” and begin 2019 with the “new you.” Create new goals, breathe new energy and more life into forgotten ones. Casa Vinyasa 5901 SW 74th St. Suite 414 South Miami, FL 33143*** Ok, so technically not Coral Gables, BUT, it’s REALLY CLOSE, and my wife works there, so privileges. PLUS, it’s a fantastic studio, run by amazing yogis, and with the closing down of Floyo, they definitely raise the bar to new standards.
  • Continuing his sessions every first and third Tuesdays of each month, UM Professor Scott Rodgers and Alice Lash will help you “unwind, refocus and reclaim the day” with mindfulness sitting from 12:30 PM to 1:15 PM. (Founders of UM’s Mindfulness in Law program and Mindfultime, respectively). FREE 1301 Stanford Drive on the University of Miami Campus, Coral Gables, FL 33134.

A Mouthful

  • Dinner, expertly prepared by the in-house culinary team, as well as a full-service open bar is definitely another way to ring in the New Year! “All that Glitters” is the theme, so be sure to to glam out in your finest! Sintennial celebrations of Frank Sinatra by local crooner Jeff Grainger, the Inner Music Band and DJ Camee! $201.40 – $287.95 Reservations are a must Click Here!  Coral Gables Country Club 997 North Greenway Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33134
  • Kick it old school with an elegant Masquerade Ball! The party begins at 8:30pm when the doors open to the beautiful Granada Ballroom. An exquisite dinner will be presented with a Premium Open Bar. In addition to the scrumptious four course dinner, there will be an over the top dessert buffet with various delectable sweets and savories. The Alhambra Ballroom will offer a dance lounge for those attending the dessert portion of the evening, featuring a DJ and live band! At midnight, champagne will flow and fireworks will light up the sky over the golf course. Cigars will be offered on the terrace and other fun activities will help ring in the New Year. Gala Dinner: Reservations $495 + Service Charge and Tax Members/Teens $395 + Service Charge and Tax | Dessert Lounge: Reservations $150 + Service Charge and Tax Members/Teens $120 + Service Charge and Tax Biltmore Hotel 1200 Anastasia Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33134
  • It could not be a celebration here without bagpipers. That’s right, bagpipers. Of course, there will also be a live DJ, a fabulous special dinner with appetizer, entree and dessert and a live feed of the ball drop. $68, JohnMartin’s Irish Pub and Restaurant 253 Miracle Mile, Coral Gables, FL 33134
