How to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Madrid?
Run the San Silvestre race
You can end the year fulfilling your resolutions to be more active by participating in the San Silvestre-Vallecana race on 31 December, the last race of 2022 in Madrid. This race consists of 10 kilometres that you can enjoy under the Christmas lights of Madrid. Last year 40,000 runners took part, so come and be one of them!
This year, the race will be held at different times starting at 5pm to make the race more agile. The route, as always, is very fast and favourable as 8 of the 10 kilometres are slightly downhill. You can register for the San Silvestre race here.
New Year Countdown in Puerta del Sol
There is no New Year’s Eve more typical in Madrid than the one celebrated in Puerta del Sol, where thousands of locals and tourists gather before midnight to eat the 12 grapes and say goodbye to the year. Although it is optional, tradition dictates that on New Year’s Eve you should go to Sol with accessories and costumes, as well as sparkling wine to toast. Remember that eating your grapes on time means a year of good luck.
Dance the night away
In Madrid there are many clubs where you can go dancing on New Year’s Eve. Teatro Kapital, Joy Eslava, Teatro Barceló and other top clubs have their own New Year’s Eve parties, with reggaeton, techno… there is music for all tastes to spend an unforgettable night.
Starting the year dancing is the perfect plan after enjoying a New Year’s Eve dinner with friends or family. The celebration continues in the city’s best nightclubs, but make sure you buy your tickets in advance as they tend to sell out at this time of year.
Churros and chocolate in San Ginés
A few metres from Puerta del Sol you’ll find what is indisputably the best place for hot chocolate in Madrid, San Ginés. Here you can expect some queues and, as a reward, some delicious churros with hot chocolate to enter the new year in the sweetest way and recharge your batteries before the family reunions on January 1st. This is one of the best places for New Year’s Eve in Madrid with the little ones or with a group of friends.
