From Traditional Feasts to Dance-Worthy Beats, the Courtyard World Trade Center, Abu Dhabi Celebrates the Season in Style

ABU DHABI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES -- (Marketwired) -- Nov 25, 2015 -- If ever there were a time to indulge, it would be during the holidays. And if ever there were a place to do it, it would be at the Courtyard World Trade Center, Abu Dhabi. This contemporary hotel has planned an exciting range of events -- from Grand Buffets to Recovery Brunches -- and it is inviting everyone to enjoy the party.

Christmas Eve (December 24)
With three of the finest hotel restaurants in Abu Dhabi, the Courtyard is the place to dine this Christmas Eve. Choose from a buffet at The Bistro (7 to 11 p.m.) or a three-course meal at Fifth Street Cafe (noon to 1 a.m.), and you'll enjoy a repast fit for St. Nick.

The Bistro's buffet features options like succulent turkey and all the trimmings, as well as a well-stocked seafood bar. Fifth Street Cafe, meanwhile, will serve a choice of appetizers, oven-roasted turkey roulade or filet mignon and traditional Christmas pudding.

Prices start at AED 199 per person for the buffet and AED 135 per person for the set menu. The a la carte cafe menu is also available.

Christmas Day (December 25)
Guests can look forward to equally spectacular feasts on Christmas Day, too. The Bistro will serve a brunch (12:30 to 3:30 p.m.) featuring golden turkeys with cranberry sauce, U.S. prime rib, Yorkshire pudding and roasted potatoes, as well as international dishes like wok-fried duck and chicken moulikya. After dining, guests can toast the holiday with a festive tipple at Up and Below, the rooftop bar and star attraction among Abu Dhabi hotels near the World Trade Center.

Fifth Street Cafe will also mark the holiday with a three-course meal (12 p.m. to 1 a.m.), which begins with caramelized scallops, continues with oven-roasted turkey roulade and Brussels sprouts and ends with Christmas pudding drizzled with vanilla sauce.

Prices start at AED 199 for brunch and AED 135 for the set menu. A la carte options are also available at the cafe.

New Year's Eve (December 31)
Bid 2015 a fond and fabulous farewell at one of these two restaurants in Abu Dhabi. The Bistro will host a Grand Buffet (7 to 11:45 p.m.) with an abundance of dishes ranging from seafood (think Fine de Claire oysters) to Harissa marinated chicken, roasted rib eye, leg of lamb and more. And, of course, end the year on a sweet note with a taste of the chocolate pudding, lemon meringue pie, tiramisu or chocolate fountain.

Fifth Street Cafe will serve a three-course meal paired with a glass of wine (12 p.m. to 1 a.m.) on New Year's Eve with options like blue crab cake with a citrus confit, followed by braised short ribs or pan-seared salmon. A tasting platter of desserts provides the perfect final course.

And since no New Year is complete without a good party, Up and Below (8 p.m. to 3 a.m.) will serve cocktails and the city's hottest beats alongside the best views in Abu Dhabi.

Prices start at AED 249 per person for the Grand Buffet, AED 149 per person for dinner at Fifth Street Café and AED 199 per person for unlimited house drinks at Up and Below from 9 p.m. to midnight.

New Year's Day (January 1)
Start the New Year right with a Recovery Brunch at The Bistro (12:30 to 3:30 p.m.). Sushi, fresh seafood and international cuisine like Malabar lamb curry will all be on offer, as well a selection of desserts. (Hello, chocolate-and-chestnut tart.) Afterward, enjoy an "After Brunch" drink on the house at Up and Below.

Prices start at AED 135 per person.

Traditionalists who want to put a twist on things by staying in but serving a professionally prepared meal can have the best of both worlds with the hotel's Turkey Takeaways. Available November 24 to January 7, this offer includes a 6-kilogram turkey (serves five to six people) or 8-kilogram turkey (serves eight to nine people) with all the trimmings like sage-and-chestnut stuffing, herb-roasted potatoes, honey-roasted root vegetables, Brussels sprouts, sweet potato gratin and cranberry sauce, all for AED 499 or AED 599.

Those who'd like to get a head start on the holiday fun, meanwhile, can book the Festive Holiday Package. Available between December 1 and 31, 2015, the offer includes 20% discounts on dining at the hotel, two gift certificates of AED 100 each to House of Fraser and The World Trade Center Mall and two tickets to Novo Cinemas.

Prices start at AED 480 per night for a deluxe room, and a minimum stay of two nights is required. (Use the promotional code HOL when booking online or at +9714 4490878.)

All prices are subject to a 10% service charge and a 6% tourism fee.
