Marina Weekender will see Judge Jules headline, and a meet and greet with celebrity chef Simon Rimmer…

Abu Dhabi, mark your calendars for next weekend, as a new festival is kicking off on Yas Island that you’re going to want to know about.

Yas Island’s three latest arrivals The Scene by Simon Rimmer, Mr Miyagi’s, and the soon-to-launch Casa De Cuba to bring you two weekends of family-friendly and late-night fun with the launch of the Marina Weekender.

The first weekend kicks off on Thursday January 31 with happy hour deals from 5pm to 8pm, followed by a lively brunch party from 8pm to 11pm at Mr Miyagi’s. Guests can expect five courses of Asian dishes, free-flowing beverages, party games and live performances priced from Dhs290.

On Friday, sashay on over for the grand opening of Casa De Cuba on Friday night for Tropicana Sessions, where legendary house DJ Judge Jules will take up deck duty until the early hours.

Saturday is all about The Scene, where you can enjoy homely British comfort food, live sport, and a deal on beverages where you’ll get five house drinks for Dhs175.

If you’re not partied out by Sunday, make your way to Casa De Cuba’s new 90s party, hosted by Another Level alum, Dane Bowers. Expect endless 90s and 00s hits, as well as three complimentary beverages for ladies, or unlimited drinks all evening for just Dhs99.
