Live music from a 26-piece band. Glamorous gowns and the finest of suits. The most delicious delicacies as far as the eye can see. Visitors and residents of Dubai searching for the most sophisticated of locales to say goodbye to 2014 and embrace 2015 will be at one place on New Year's Eve — The Royal Gala Dinner at Atlantis, The Palm.
The annual extravaganza under the stars on the Atlantis Beach has become the place to ring in the New Year, a celebration to rival all others around the world.
With the Dubai skyline as the backdrop, the evening at the Royal Gala begins at 7:30pm with canapes, champagne and welcome drinks before the live entertainment kicks off at 8pm, playing through until 3am. The party continues with unlimited drinks. The luxury buffet is sure to satisfy any palate, with an incredible arrangement from lobster and caviar to shawarmas and fajitas.
The highlight of the night — the front row seat to the spectacular, highly-anticipated fireworks show.
