For many of us, New Year's Eve is as much a celebration of the last 12 months as it is a welcoming of the next 12.
And the final night of the year gives us a chance to end 2018 on a high.
With that in mind, we were glad to hear one of our favourite spots in the capital is going big with a massive New Year's Eve bash this year.
Observation Deck at 300 should undoubtedly be near the top of any visitor's to-do list and what better time for visitors and residents alike to check it out than December 31.
The Jumeirah at Etihad Towers venue's big bash will give guests the chance to soak up panoramic views of the Abu Dhabi skyline from 74 floors up on New Year’s Eve.
A variety of beverages and nibbling dishes are available, plus brilliant views of the fireworks are guaranteed.
Dhs145 (one premium beverage). From 10pm. Jumeirah at Etihad Towers, Corniche West (02 811 5666).
