Settling on New Year's Eve plans can be a tough test for even the strongest of friendships.
Everybody has different ideas on how to see in the new year and settling on just one can prove almost impossible.
So why not avoid any arguments and head straight to Ray's Bar for an NYE bash sure to please everyone.
The level 62 bar at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers is a favourite of ours throughout the year, with a great atmosphere, sophisticated vibe and awesome drinks.
But December 31 promises to be an unmissable night even by its own lofty standards.
Entry for the NYE party costs Dhs695 per person for a table of two, or Dhs575 per person for tables of four.
If you're on a table of six, it costs Dhs485.
Table packages include premium beverages and a glass of French beverage per person.
And what's more, you can get 25 per cent off the bill by dining at the excellent Ray's Grill beforehand.
This is the perfect place to toast to the good life, high up above the city, with expansive views of the fireworks across the city as we welcome 2019.
Prices vary. December 31. Level 62, Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, West Corniche Road (02 811 5666).
