Deciding on the best nightlife venues, bands and events in Abu Dhabi was always going to be a tough task.
We spent all year checking out the capital's best venues, attending gigs and events (a hard job, but someone has got to do it) so we could crown the absolute best fairly and impartially.
We handed out 19 different awards across a number of categories, from Best Cocktail Bar and Best Band and Best Live Music Event.
Then there are the final two, as well. All eyes were on our awards for Best Newcomer and Best Restaurant.
Some of our winners tasted the winning feeling for the first time, while others are seasoned veterans when it comes to being top of the pile.
