The weekend is nearly here…

Another week rolls around, and it’s mid-July… Does anyone else know where that went? There’s plenty to do in Dubai this weekend, from a wellness weekend to an excellent happy hour deal and a cool Saturday brunch.

Here’s 5 awesome things to do in Dubai this weekend…


1. Sip on Dhs13 drinks in this great happy hour

Thursday night often means toasting to the weekend, and what better way to do just that than with a great happy hour deal? Head to cool rooftop bar, Twenty Three, where you can enjoy selected house drinks for just Dhs13 from 4.23pm to 7.23pm. Oh, and there’s another happy hour from 11pm for an hour. In line with government directives, you’ll need to buy food too, but there’s a great selection of sharing dishes, with 23 per cent off all food.

When a catch up with friends is in order, but you’re down for more of a conversation than dancing the night away, check out the cool Thursday night brunch at the recently reopened Social Company. Enjoy signature Social Company dishes, free-flowing house beverages and live acoustic music from 7.30pm to 10.30pm.
