It’s finally here, the moment we’ve all been waiting for—the end of 2020! While sighs of relief can be heard throughout Los Angeles, many are wondering how to safely celebrate the momentous occasion of ringing in the New Year safely. Although the current pandemic has yet to dwindle down and our options have become limited due to temporary closures, there’s a special place nestled by the ocean offering a safe and lavish NYE experience. Look no further than the Shade Hotels in Redondo Beach and Manhattan Beach.

Granted, this year calls for a twist on traditional celebrations, and therefore, Shade Hotels have adjusted accordingly and implemented top-of-the-line offerings from proper COVID-19 measures to NYE room specials and even a to-go six-course tasting menu. Yes, you can now enjoy a delectable takeout dinner special from the acclaimed zinc@shade restaurant at Shade Hotel Manhattan Beach in the comfort of your own home that’s sure to take your tastebuds on a much needed escape. 

Serving four people, this six-course menu features an array of mouthwatering enchantments worthy of a shoutout on all social media! The experience begins with a bottle of Le Grand Courtȃge Brut champagne paired with a fine assortment of cheese and charcuterie. It moves on to antipasto, spicy tuna on crispy rice, truffle short-rib sliders, crispy fried chicken bites and Ora King salmon.

The food haven doesn’t end there; the menu also offers add-on side dishes like Osetra caviar ($75 per ounce; order by 12/29) and black truffle deviled eggs ($18) along with add-on desserts like white chocolate mousse tarts ($20) and salted caramel cheesecake bites ($20). For those looking to delve into zinc@shade’s beverage offerings, worry not! That too is a possibility with add-on drinks like the Veuve Clicquot “Yellow Label” champagne ($95), the Navy Grog ($20) and the classic margarita ($20). The six-course menu will be available Dec. 31 from 4-8 p.m.

For those who are looking for a weekend getaway to celebrate NYE, Shade Hotels are offering exclusive NYE room packages that include a six-course private menu at both locations (dates vary). If your refined taste is seeking a VIP stay, look to Shade Hotel Redondo Beach and opt for the NYE two-night VIP package that includes a nine-course tasting menu and in-suite bottle service. Plus, both Shade Hotels are offering special discount pricing to anyone who mentions LOCALE! We couldn’t think of a better way to start 2021! 

Torn between which to choose? We don’t blame you. The great thing, however, is that there’s no wrong choice! Both locations are in the center of beautiful, picturesque beach towns that are a few stops away from one another. With gorgeous South Bay sunsets, relaxing vibes, tasty food and top-notch safety protocols that provide all guests with personal safety kits, this is sure to be one memorable New Year’s celebration!
