Including all-day happy hours and a special Indian snack menu…

The crowd went wild when we heard the news that the UAE was chosen to host this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL), and even though, for our safety, we won’t be able to buy tickets for wickets and spectate from the stands, we’re still buzzing about how close cricketing’s MVPs will be.

Plus we get to watch the league play through from the comfort of our favourite bars and restaurants.

Howzat for savings?
