The Nile Ritz-Carlton is getting ready for a new year with a round of celebration taking place in every corner. The Lobby Lounge welcomes every member of the family from 1.00 to 9.00 PM, to enjoy a hot chocolate and a variety of Christmas desserts, at New Year’s Chocolate Heaven, which comes at the price of 250LE+++ per person. Children between 7 and 12 years old get a 50% discount, while children that are 6 or under are free.

Later, New Year’s Chocolate Heaven is set to see the band Trio taking to the stage, playing a round of delightful tunes until the arrival of New Year’s Countdown, where an array of cocktails will be waiting from 10.00 PM to 1.00 AM at the Lobby Lounge and the Ritz Bar.

Speaking of the countdown, celebrate the beginning of a new year at Aqua, whose menu offers a range of tapas and cocktails, served to the jazzy sounds of the DJ from 9.00 PM to 5.00 AM. Minimum charge is 550LE+++.

Meanwhile, the New Year’s Eve in Arabia buffet comprises a selection of Middle Eastern delights, on a night that sees a live band and a belly dancer performing. Taking place at Culina and Bab El Sharq from 9.00 PM to 2.00 AM, New Year’s Eve in Arabia is for 1200LE+++, including a glass of bubbles. Children between 7 and 12 years old get half the price, while children 6 or under are free. There’s also an unlimited local beverages package at 750LE+++.

Alternatively, Vivo and Bar’Oro team up for a special New Year’s Eve night called Veni.Vivo.Vici… Dine and Party, where an intimate dining experience of a six-course meal awaits you at Vivo, before heading to welcome the new year at Bar’Oro to the beats of a DJ, with a round of cocktails and drinks. Veni.Vivo.Vici… Dine and Party (8.00 PM to 3.00 AM) comes at the price of 1300LE+++ per person, including one glass of sparkling wine, and party favours. Corkage is 850LE+++, while an additional unlimited local beverages package for 750LE+++.

But what the hotel itself calls the Ritz-Carlton’s event of the year happens to be at NOX. Set to end the year with a bang, the rooftop nightclub offers three starters, a dessert, a bubbly toast at midnight, and a range of party favours. Not just that, a DJ takes to decks, and there’ll be a host of surprise acts. The all-inclusive minimum charge is 2100LE, while corkage is for 850LE+++. New Year’s at Nox starts at 10.00 PM and ends at 4.00 AM.
