Choosing where you'll spend the final hours of the year can be stressful. You want excellent views with minimal crowds and the chance to celebrate the countdown to 2019 in style. Well, Cruise Bar has just that, with three levels of fun bang-on Circular Quay, excellent food and drinks, and a pumping dancefloor to boogie on led by DJs, the Stafford Brothers.
Lock in your revelries with Cruise Bar's New Year countdown party. General admission will get you a glass of sparkling wine on arrival (before 9pm), food and drink stands with menus curated by executive chef Patrick Haney, and access to the harbour views on levels one and two until 2am for only $99pp. Or, if you really want to ring in the New Year with gusto, get your hands on a VIP ticket from $349pp, which gives you three hours of free-flowing Pol Roger NV Champagne, beer and wine, with roaming canapés and stellar views of the fireworks on all three levels.
You're sure to dance your way into 2019, as the Stafford Brothers will be joined by a huge line-up of DJs, who will be pumping out the good-time tunes well past midnight.
