Bilbao at New Year

My husband and I are thinking of going to Bilbao for five days over this coming New Year and I wondered whether anyone knew what happens there, e.g. are there any outdoor celebrations. We would also want to book a restaurant for the 31st but don't want a lot of hoohaa - just a good meal. Any suggestions?

Yes, there are plenty of outdoor celebrations...but it��s rainy over here. Most people dine at home and they go out at about 0030 or 0100 AM, either to parties on the streets or to private parties at discos, hotels, etc. Parties normally end by 8-9 in the morning, even at 10 you will see people going back home.

for restaurants: there are many special new years eve dinners, starting at about 2200 or later, they are on the papers about one month in advance.
