Fun-loving ‘madrileños’ know how to party like there’s no tomorrow and the Spanish capital is high in the ranks of European party capitals. Ginkgo Sky Bar, located on the 12th floor of the 5-star VP Plaza España Design, is one the city’s hottest new spots and promises one of the most glamorous New Year’s Eve events in the city.
Offering the perfect vantage point to enjoy Madrid’s world-renowned firework displays, as well as panoramic views of the illuminated Royal Palace below, visitors can see in 2019 in a truly sophisticated Spanish fashion with a black-tie party until 4am with live music.

The menu includes starters such as Iberian ham with crystal bread, tomato and extra virgin olive oil, ‘Ginkgo style’ Spanish potato salad with prawn carpaccio and Bluefin tuna tartar with fried eggs and potatoes, mains such as Galician tenderloin with pistachio or Monkfish with a festive orange marinade, and desserts of Spanish nougat and Christmas sweets.
