Nikki Privé Opening Party


Yes, you read well, an opening party in October. Nikki Beach is launching a new concept and frankly, we don´t know why no all the beach bars along the Costa follow it. The winter days are deliciously warm next to the sea, so why not enjoying them appropriately?

The celebration continues this winter as Nikki Beach Marbella introduces Nikki Privé, an exclusive daytime lounge. Nikki Beach is open for Lunch seven days a week and features the brand’s signature cuisine, entertainment and events. Open from October 8 to January 8 during lunchtime.

    Please can you advise if there are any antique/collectors markets near Calle street from 28th Nov to 2nd Dec and what other events might be taking place during that time. We are coming for a conference during that time and staying at the Atarazanas Boutique hotel. We would like to walk around the immediate area, is it safe to do so in the evenings?

    • Hello Peggy!
      Please check our Events Section in our FB for the most recent updates on Events.
      The area where you stay is the city centre with plenty of night life, bars and restaurants. Plus at this time of the year the Christmas illumination is already switched on and you will love to walk the area after dark.

      Regarding security, it is quite safe but of course there can always happen something, especially if you run around with expensive cameras or a lot of cash in your pocket, but that is common sense! 😉

      Enjoy your stay in Málaga!
      Kind regards,
