Time Out Dubai’s Best Beach Bar is bringing in Fatman Scoop, Bassjackers and a whole lot of fun to ring in the New Year, and that’s at only one of the parties it’s throwing. Barasti Beach’s huge New Year’s Eve bash is set to make a grand return, but this time with not just one, but two parties to celebrate the last day of 2018 for as long as possible. First off, you can kick off the last day of the year in style with the beach spot’s “One Last Barasti Pool Splash of 2018” starting at 10am, where partygoers can put on their togs and relax in the pool until 5pm. Once the sun goes down, the beats will turn all the way up from 7pm onwards. Tunes from ‘Mr. Do-it All’ Fatman Scoop will make you “put your hands up”.
→ One Last Barasti Pool Splash: Free entry. Mon Dec 31, 10am-5pm. NYE Party: Dhs210 (advance ticket), Dhs249 (at the gate). Mon Dec 31, 7pm-4am. Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud Street, www.barastibeach.com (04 318 1313).
