All the best parties in Dubai this week
From pool parties to drinks you can pay for in exchange for a lime…
It’s a new week, and if it’s a big night out you’re after, you’re in the right place. We’re kicking off the week with a top London DJ making his debut at a top ladies’ night tonight, then heading to JBR with a bag full of limes on Wednesday to exchange for a Mai Thai at Trader Vic’s.
Then, see in the weekend with a pool party with a top deal for the girls, and see it out with a retro disco night.
