 Nikki Beach Miami Beach, Saint Barth, Koh Samui, Bali, Dubai and Marbella to participate In Nikki Beach’s New Year’s Eve Festivities

MIAMI BEACH, FL., December 12, 2016 — Nikki Beach Worldwide, the family owned and operated global luxury lifestyle and hospitality brand, will ring in 2017 in Miami Beach, Saint Barth, Koh Samui, Bali, Dubai, and, for the first time, Marbella with a Magical Garden theme. The theme lends itself to an enchanting evening with festive décor, hanging elements and whimsical staff costumes. Critically acclaimed, multi-award winning, platinum-selling singer-songwriter John Legend will host a live, intimate performance at Nikki Beach Saint Barth.


During his 50-minute set, Legend’s vocals will be accompanied by a piano solo. Following the recent December release of Legend’s fifth studio album, “Darkness and Light,” including his current anthemic hit “Love Me Now,” Nikki Beach Saint Barth guests will enjoy a moving performance with the artist just before the countdown culminates with a magical fireworks display at midnight. Legend’s work has garnered him ten Grammy Awards, an Academy Award, Golden Globe, a BET Award for Best New Artist and the special Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame, among others.

In addition to Legend’s Saint Barth solo, entertainment will be provided by DJ Patris Gero and percussionist Jimmy Sax during dinner, and by famed Saint Tropez DJ Jack-E later in the evening.


Globally, Nikki Beach will wow guests with an array of signature performances. At Nikki Beach Marbella, entertainment will span a DJ, dancers, instrumental performers, aerial show, interactive animation, magician and fireworks. In Dubai, the lineup will feature Nikki Beach’s resident DJs and all female live musicians (High On Heels: Saxophone, Violin, Percussion, Vocalist and DJ), plus a spectacular fireworks display. Guests will also be able to enjoy the world famous fireworks display from the Burj Khalifa with views from Nikki Privé. In Miami Beach, partygoers will view a spectacular, private beachside fireworks show at midnight, which is the only New Year’s Eve fireworks display in Miami Beach aside from the one put on by the city.

“Nikki Beach was founded around the celebration of life, and New Year’s Eve is an evening that encapsulates all we strive to achieve as a brand,” says Jack Penrod, Founder and Owner of Nikki Beach Worldwide. “We combine our vision of understated opulence across all of our core brand elements to create a memorable evening that keeps our loyal Nikki Beach guests coming back year after year.”

In addition to entertainment, the Nikki Beach brand combines the ultimate beach club concept with elements of music, dining, fashion, film and art, which can be experienced through innovative events. Nikki Beach Saint Barth will be interpreting the Magical Garden theme with beautifully constructed garlands of leaves, mushrooms, candles and butterflies. A tunnel of flowers will invite guests into the curated space to discover the magic of Nikki Beach. In Miami Beach, exquisite birdcages, ornate mirrors and delicate butterflies will illuminate the space.

Each location is creating a special menu filled with gastronomic delights. Miami Beach’s decadent 3-course meal will be served in the romantic, candlelit garden and surrounding beach area. After indulging in Beef Carpaccio and Lobster Ravioli, partygoers will be invited to sample a Chocolate Garden of edible flowers, hand-dipped strawberries and truffles. The Marbella location will serve a gourmet 4-course menu consisting of a Trio of Foie de Canard and Golden Potato Mousseline topped with premium Perlita Caviar. In Dubai, the restaurant and Nikki Privé will be serving Gillardeau Oysters, King Crab Salad, Foie Gras Sliders and Diver Sea Scallops. In Saint Barth, guests will sip on Perrier Jouët Champagne and dine on Kobe Beef Filet and Forbidden Pear with Raspberry Lava Cake and Pistachio Biscuit.


“At Nikki Beach, we want to ensure our guests have a memorable culinary experience that excites their tastebuds,” explains Brian Molloy, Global Director of Culinary Operations. “I work closely with the head chefs at each location to craft an exceptional menu for New Year’s Eve so every visitor has an extraordinary dining experience.”
