Burj Khalifa is arguably the most iconic New Year’s Eve spot in Dubai; the firework display makes headlines around the world every year and the plethora of five-star dining options are one of the chicest ways to celebrate the New Year. There are an estimated 1.5 million people expected to descend on Downtown Dubai to bring in 2018 and this week, the tallest tower in the world also tweeted a teaser video of their NYE lightshow, which is attempting to break a world record. In short, if you haven’t got your Sunday night plans sorted yet, this is undeniably the place to be. Bazaar visited Burj Khalifa’s Armani Ristorante to check out their NYE menu ahead of next week’s celebrations.
