2017 is almost ending and we’re soon going to say hello to 2018. Well by the time you read this, I am quite sure most of you will already have your plans affirmed for New Year’s eve – ie. tomorrow. But for those (like me) who are still ever so confused about what to do, where to party, whom to hang out with, this blog post might come in handy.
I say skip the ol’ countdown in Goa (unless you’re already in Goa!) because there’s so much you can do, right here in Mumbai. With mega parties and celebrations going on all over the city, there is something for everyone. Check out some interesting yet unconventional ways to usher in 2018 in Mumbai:
1. Paint Party
Join Paintology’s paint-party to get yourself immersed in a pot full of memories with your family and friends to celebrate art at Doolally, Andheri West. And don’t worry if you have never painted before in your life because this party requires no prior painting experience! If you are a first-time painter, then nothing can be better than this opportunity for you to start loving colors! All the art materials from easel, canvas, paints and brushes, everything will be taken care of. You will also be provided food and beverages!
Cost: Rs 1400
Where: Doolally, Andheri (W) Mumbai
2. Fireworks at Marine Drive
There can be no better way to see the beautiful city of Mumbai. Head to Marine Drive, watch fireworks with family and friends, wait for the crowd to bring in some cheer and welcome the new year by the Arabian sea. To top it all, there will be music and food. This is a fun, beautiful and inexpensive way to bring in 2018.
Where: Marine Drive
3. Bollywood Night
If you love Hindi music and all the thumkas, this one is for you! Novotel is hosting one of Mumbai’s most spectacular celebration tomorrow. This is the “Eleganza Bollywood Sensation Night” It promises a rocking set of DJs, exclusive dance performances, Punjabi dhol, a wide selection of dishes to satisfy your hunger buds and premium quality free pouring alcohol to keep your feet’s tapping.

4. Catch a movie!
Star Wars – the Last Jedi, Jumanji, Tiger Zinda Hai – head to your nearest movie theatre, book a gold class ticket, grab your popcorn & cold drink and bring in the New Year with any one of these action-packed movies!
Cost: Rs 250 – Rs 700/person
Where: At your nearest theatre
5. Amusement Park
Apart from several fantastic rides, there’s a huge, exciting party happening at Adlabs Imagica tomorrow. It’s not too far away from Mumbai as well! Catch live shows by well-known DJs, international standard rides & attractions, feast on mouth-watering food & unlimited drinks – isn’t this a fabulous way to end 2017?
Kids, especially, will love this! And for people, who are looking for a fun day out and a party after, all in an open arena, you should not miss this!
Cost: Rs 1934 – Rs 5200
Where: Adlabs Imagica
6. Dinner Party
If the thought of crowded streets, loud music and party stringers gives you the shudders, then staying in for New Year’s Eve might just be the best option for you. Besides skipping the hassle of fighting with the crowds, staying in allows you to have deeper conversations with the people that matter and bond over good wine and a savoury roast. If you have family, a good friend or co-worker who lives in the city and has a killer view of the skyline from his or her apartment’s balcony, better get into his or her good books, quick.
Hope you all have a fantastic time celebrating the last day of 2017!!
See you next year.
