Surf and stars will combine for an unforgettable New Year’s Eve when you ring in 2022 at Malibu Beach Inn’s Carbon Beach Club. Guests of the hotel and Malibu residents alike may indulge in a six-course, prix-fixe menu designed to celebrate the new year. Each diner will receive a complimentary glass of Champagne and other sweet surprises throughout the evening.

Driving along the winding Pacific Coast Highway and checking in to Malibu Beach Inn to celebrate New Year’s Eve is the perfect respite after a long year. Once you arrive, you’ll be escorted to your room, where picturesque views greet guests. Watch the sun slowly slip below the horizon from your balcony, then don your most festive attire for a New Year’s Eve you won’t soon forget.

New Year’s Eve On The Beach

The food and drinks at Carbon Beach Club

Whether you choose to dine fireside in Carbon Beach Club’s newly renovated, Waldo Fernandez-designed dining room or on the deck under the stars, the sounds of the crashing Pacific will surely reach your ears as you settle in for a long, leisurely meal. The restaurant’s New Year’s Eve menu will focus on locally sourced ingredients from the region’s finest purveyors, including One Gun Ranch.

Start your meal with one of CBC bar director Josh Curtis’ special winter cocktails, then move to a glass or bottle selected from the extensive wine list, recognized by Wine Spectator with its Award of Excellence for the sixth year in a row (after all, your journey to bed just includes a short walk down the hallway). Then the food will start to appear. California coastal cuisine gets a celebratory upgrade for the holiday, all carefully prepared by CBC executive chef Ryan Caldwell and his team. “The ingredients do all the work, not me,” Caldwell said in a recent interview.

Expect a menu heavy on fresh produce, with land and sea options prepared with a Mediterranean spin. Dessert will surely include indulgent treats designed to pair perfectly with a glass of Champagne. This is New Year’s Eve, after all.

Post-Ball Drop

A celebration at Carbon Beach Club

Once the clock strikes midnight, retire to your room for the evening, or continue the party long into the night under the stars, staying cozy on the deck thanks to CBC’s heaters and warm blankets. The next morning calls for room service, and Caldwell and his team once again deliver with the perfect post-New Year’s brunch. Opt for granola with Greek yogurt and seasonal berries. For something a bit heartier, indulge the fried egg sandwich or lox and bagel. Then, spending time in the fresh air and sunshine with a walk along the beach or to Malibu Pier is the best way to welcome 2022 with open arms.
