We toast to a happy and healthy 2021!
You might not expect it, but in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates you can actually have a crazy party. So good that together with a friend of ours we even celebrated New Year’s Eve twice.
The first time, we had tickets for a party on the roof terrace of one of the most iconic locations in Dubai’s nightlife, ‘360’. The establishment at the end of a sort of pier, lived up to its name by offering visitors an amazing 360-degree view of the Burj Al Arab, the Jumeirah Beach Hotel and the sea. The fireworks display was one of the most beautiful displays we have ever seen. The party itself was so special and cosy that we only went back to our hotel at 6:00 am. Unfortunately, 360 has been permanently closed since the spring of 2018.
The second time we had tickets for a party at Zero Gravity, a fantastic beach, bar and restaurant with an ideal location between the bustling districts of Al Sufouh and Jumeirah Beach Residence, near Dubai Media City and Dubai Marina. There were many performances even after the countdown. The fireworks were spectacular again. What makes the place special is that during the whole festive evening you can just stand barefoot in the sand with a good glass of champagne.
