The gorgeous city of San Diego brings so much fun over the holidays for both locals and out-of-town visitors, so what exactly is there to do this Christmas and New Year’s season? We’re glad you asked.

Ball on Broadway

The first event of season that you have to join us at is our Five Group Holiday Party at the stunning, New York-inspired Queensborough lounge located in the heart of the Gaslamp Quarter. On December 9th, our team will be hosting a lavish, yet down-to-Earth Christmas-inspired celebration with a classy Vodka and Appetizer event from 9-10pm as the pre-party of the year. We will be hosting a raffle with exclusive Five Group merchandise, local shop and venue gift cards, and more before the night really gets rolling, of course.

Our female guests that attend the Five Group Holiday Party even have a chance to win our NYE Glam Package Sweepstakes Grand Prize including 2 tickets to our upscale James Bond-inspired Bond Ball NYE, a gorgeous Hydrafacial from Inner Radiances Spa, a Posh & Polished Deluxe Pamper Package including both a relaxing manicure and pedicure at $67 value, an Organic Spray Tan from The Organic Tan Studio, and even a $50 gift card to San Diego’s favorite up-and-coming boutique Trendy & Tipsy all for the night of your dreams! We will make sure that you are prepared with ease, feeling and looking your best for a night with Bond that you will never forget.

The Bay’s Parade

A holiday favorite for San Diego locals is the Bay Parade of Lights down at the Marina Park in Seaport Village area. Over 100 privately owned boats dance across the bay water, parading lights and shining bright for all local families to enjoy. On both the 10th and 17th of December, this gorgeous site of sail décor can be spotted from all over the city with the best views in Seaport, Shelter Island, Harbor Island, and Coronado to see this effortless cascade of holiday cheer.

Rounding the Rink

Just because we live in place where the sun shines 11 months of the year, doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy being on ice when it finally comes time to enjoy the skating rinks around the city. Our favorite, of course, is the Coronado beach-front rink ribbed with palm trees, colliding children, and a gorgeous view of the ocean and San Diego sunset. Coronado, on its own with its stunning, classic, and famous Christmas lights, brings crowds to its perfected architecture, warm welcoming, and large trees and is considered one of the major tourist attractions during the Christmas season. We definitely suggest the venue for a romantic date night or a night of family fun to all that want to see its beautiful sights that only go up this time a year!

A few other venues to check out for some family fun on the ice are Horton Plaza, UTC, Viejas Casino in Alpine, Poway’s Ice Arena, Valley View Casino Center and more. We only get so much time to spend in skates, so we always will be the first to suggest this wonderful activity to both tourists and locals!

Elevate your New Year’s Eve standards with the most incredible, all-inclusive San Diego nightlife event of the year at the Hotel Republic’s NYE 2018 Bond Ball.

Broadway Goes Big

San Diego NYE 2018 will present so many options and tiers of entertainment, which is why the Parq Restaurant and Nightclub’s Ball on Broadway is another option to bring some fun to the last night of the year as an elite experience of a lifetime.
