All the best parties in Dubai this weekend
Ladies’ days, club openings, and it’s the final week for this pop-up underground house night…
It’s a long weekend for most of us, and so that means even more hours to fill with fun stuff. From the relaunch of a ladies day and re-opening of a poolside party place, to the final week of an underground club, we’ve rounded up all the best places to party this weekend.
