Sweet dreams are made of cheese…

Happy hours, ladies nights and gents nights are great and all, but sometimes we feel like a slightly more classy affair – one that involves us eating our bodyweight in cheese. Ok, perhaps classy is the wrong word.

We also love a good dining deal, and thankfully, there are plenty of amazing wine and cheese night deals to try in Dubai.

A brand new wine and cheese night has just launched at The Scene by Simon Rimmer in Pier 7. Every Wednesday from September 16, tuck into a hearty cheese platter, piled high with baked camembert, goats cheese, aged cheddar and stilton, with chutneys, crackers and more. Wash it all down with free-flowing grape for two hours, whilst enjoying epic Dubai marina views and live music by Chad Sycamore. The price? A very reasonable Dhs149. Pick any two-hour slot from 6pm.
