Sponsored: A gingerbread grotto, traditional roasts and a free entry New Year’s Eve party? Here’s where you need to be this Christmas…

Making plans for an office get together, family roast or New Year’s Eve with friends this festive season? Then head to Marina hotspot The Scene by Simon Rimmer, who’ve got you covered with a host of top offers that won’t break the bank.

The British eatery have decked their halls and trimmed their trees, transforming into a complete winter wonderland. The restaurant is even home to a gingerbread grotto where little ones can share their Christmas wishes with Santa.

In the lead-up to Christmas, head down to The Scene for the ultimate office party – where a three-course traditional Christmas dinner with two hours of unlimited drinks starts from Dhs199 including soft drinks, and Dhs349 for house drinks. Or, if your colleagues have been good this year, upgrade to the premium package for Dhs399.

Plus if you’re just popping in for a pint, or meeting up with a mate, their advent calendar of daily deals will give you a wallet-friendly offer that changes each day, from free mulled wine to buy one get one free offers.

If it’s a traditional Christmas Day you’re looking for, they don’t come more homely than The Scene. This year, bring your stretchy pants for a five-course festive menu which includes a gooey brie and camembert starter, a turkey roast with all the trimmings as the main event, and Christmas pudding to finish.

It’s teamed with unlimited drinks including Christmas cocktails, a nostalgic setlist of the best festive hits and even a visit from Santa. Best of all, kids under six eat free. Prices start from Dhs375 with soft drinks and Dhs550 with house, but be sure to book in fast as it’s one of the city’s most popular spots.

Once Christmas Day is done, The Scene gets ready for some Boxing Day fun, serving up recovery roast dinners from Dhs125 for those who’ve still got room. Christmas jumpers aren’t just welcome, they’re encouraged…

Want to end the year with twinkling Marina views and a glimpse of the fireworks? Then The Scene is the place to be, with free entry to their end-of-year party. Dishes can be ordered from the a la carte menu at leisure, with deals on bottles of bubbly from Dhs199 and spirits from Dhs420.
