New Year’s Eve Dance Party at Comal

December 7th, 2012

← Back To Blog




For one night only this New Year’s Eve, Comal will clear out the tables, turn up the volume on our Meyer sound system and transform from a traditional sit-down restaurant into a dancehall.  Doors will open at 9pm and longtime Bay Area DJ Jose Ruiz (KPFA, KPOO), who is becoming a fixture at Comal these days, will spin his infectious mix of Latin and Funk into the wee hours.

Chef Matt Gandin and his team will keep a steady stream of antojitos (little snacks) flowing out of the kitchen throughout the night – expect some familiar items from Comal’s menu along with a few wild cards, with an emphasis on Oaxacan-style street snacks like quesadillas, de eses, tlayudas and more.

Tickets are $25 in advance ($30 cash at the door) and include all food offerings.  Advance tickets are strongly recommended, and can be purchased at or in person at Comal any night after 5pm starting on December 11th.

Bartender Matt Campbell will be twisting up a special NYE cocktail, which will be available for purchase along with Comal’s current list of craft cocktails, draft beer and wine and deep selection of tequila and mezcal.

Time – 9pm – 1:30am
Cost – $25 advance, $30 cash at door (includes food – drinks purchased separately)

Special Note – BART is open until 3am on NYE.   Comal is less than a block from the Downtown Berkeley BART station.

Also, a reminder that Abajo, our new private dining room, is now up and running. It’s a great place for a holiday party, business dinner, birthday party or any other large group gathering. We can accommodate 12-22 people. Please click here for more information.
