With the new year just around the corner, where do you want to be when the clock strikes midnight?  Here are five ways to spend your New Year’s Eve in Morro Bay.

With Music
Take to the dance floor and let last year’s difficulties and next year’s worries fade away.  Restaurants to bars, many local businesses will have live music to ring in the new year.  Morro Bay Wine Cellar, for example, will have their wine bar open and music playing from 9-midnight.  Or you could bring your own tunes and take a sunset drive on Highway 1, kicking off your shoes to dance in the sand upon your return to Morro Bay.  

Having a Relaxed NYE
New Years Eve doesn’t have to be a production, maybe you just want to kick back and relax to close out the year.  Consider making it an early night, after you treat yourself to the spa and a movie at the Bay Theater.

Over Great Food
Holidays are about family, friends, and food.  Make your reservation today for a night of chef specialties, champagne toasts, local seafood, and wine pairings.  Indulge for the night: dress up and enjoy a night of spectacular food and drink. 

Window on the Water:
Fine dining, with live music and a champagne toast at midnight.  Choose between an elegant three-course or four-course menu to celebrate the new year. 

STAX Wine Bar:
Offering a five-course meal, paired with wine, live music and party favors…all with a “good luck” theme.

60 State Park at the Inn at Morro Bay:
Enjoy a Prime Rib and Salmon Dinner Celebration all night with live music, hats, and noisemakers for the festivities. 

On the Water
Let the water challenge and calm you.  Surf, Paddleboard, Kayak – your choice.  Start that healthy New Year’s resolution a little early this year while enjoying the beautiful views and wildlife of Morro Bay, and set the tone for a year of adventure.   

While Enjoying a Beverage
Enjoy the local beer, wine or a cocktail to celebrate New Year’s at the following locations:

Great American Fish Company Bar & Lounge – watch the college football games on their bar televisions*
Harbor Hut Bar – get tropical with a specialty cocktail*
Legends – play bar games and the jukebox until 2 am
Libertine – take in the harbor view with 37 beers on tap*
Rose’s Bar – explore their martini list*
