Where to spend New Year’s Eve in Dubai.

For one night only, get ready to party like it’s 1970 at the city’s exclusive downtown dining spot, as Sean Connolly at Dubai Opera hosts a 70’s Roller Disco dinner to get you zooming into 2019.

Prepare to be transported back to a night of glitter, early 70’s disco and carefully-crafted menu of food and beverages that will see you shimmy your way back to the glory days of Michael Jackson, Blondie and Olivia Newton John. Dig out your sequins, your gold leggings, and channel your inner Studio 54 starlet as you roll into the new year.

Not only does the Sean Connolly restaurant boast an alfresco terrace with one of the best views of the world-renowned Burj Khalifa and the iconic midnight fireworks show, it also features stunning interior décor and impeccable service.

The mouthwatering menu is the star of the night, featuring dishes such asline-caught French sea bass with Scottish scallops and carabineros red prawns, king crab linguine with Amstur royal caviar and popular delights including mushrooms with buffalo ricotta gnocchi and alba truffles.

After the main meals, enjoy a sweet finish to the culinary fare with lemon tart a la marco, hazelnut semi freddo with popped corn and salted caramel and an artic roll with strawberry soup.

The evening starts with a welcome drink on the house from 7pm followed by dinner starting from 8pm. Children are welcome to join the celebrations.

Prices start from as little AED 1,500 for indoor seating and AED 2,000 for outdoor seating, complete with spectacular views of the Burj Khalifa fireworks. If you really want to up the ante for the night, make like Diana Ross and book the exclusive Private Dining Room (PDR) for AED 15,000.
