If 2017 wasn’t all you that you expected it to be (we feel you), don’t worry because the year is almost over. So, to help you bid the year a stylish farewell, we’ve gathered what we think are six of the best New Year’s deals in the Dubai Marina area.

Enjoy and don’t forget us when you’re giving your New Year’s toast in one of these spots.

Barasti Beach
The institution will be bringing in the New Year with Tomorrowland favourite DJ Chuckie. The Surinamese DJ has been credited with producing the ‘dirty house’ scene – think dancing, bright lights and interactive stage elements – besides remixing songs for Michael Jackson, David Guetta and Akon. Expect hits including “Let the Bass Kick”, “Aftershock” and “Make Some Noise”. He’ll be joined by Fatman Scoop (if you don't know who is, you're probably too young to go the event – sorry). If there’s one thing you need to be prepared for…it’s a night of non-stop partying.
Where: Le Meridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina
When: 7pm-3am, December 31
Price: AED210 (advance ticket); AED260 (at the door); tables packages start from AED3,000 for four people
