If you want a lively atmosphere where you can get up to some friendly competition with your mates, while tucking into delicious grub and drinks, The 44 at Hilton Dubai is the spot to be.

The retro sports bar is home to a double-lane bowling alley and – at 44 floors high – is one of the tallest in the world.

But that’s not all you will find here. The laidback venue is also home to other forms of competitive fun, such as pool tables, a pinball machine and even a darts area.

The venue is kitted out like an American-diner-meets-gentleman’s-club from the ’60s. Think monochrome checkered tiles, cushy green sofas and vibrant red leather bar stools. And now that the Dubai weather is at its best, there’s an outdoor terrace with a second fully licensed bar.

Here are a few deals that will bowl you over.

Barbecue Night

It’s Barbecue Night every Monday and Wednesday at The 44. For just Dhs85, you’ll get a choice of fresh grills, two sides and one house drink. The grill fires up from 8pm to midnight, making it a perfect spot to meet up with colleagues or mates after work.

Ladies’ Night
