Can you keep a secret?

Surely one of the best things about Christmas is the anticipation. The festive feeling in the air, the daily advent calendar countdowns, and the inevitable wait to open all of the presents under the tree… This year, one of Dubai’s best-loved restaurants is adding to that sense of anticipation by transforming into a winter wonderland – and for now, they’re keeping the location a tightly held secret.

Here’s what we know about this secret Christmas pop-up in Dubai…

It’s going to be oh so Instagrammable

From November 30, a well-known restaurant in Souk Madinat will be transformed into a winter wonderland, promising Insta-perfect scenes for those who are lucky enough to attend.

And family-friendly

With a Christmas sleigh for photo opps, and appearances from Santa Claus, the Gingerbread Man and Frosty the Snowman, this secret Christmas pop-up in Dubai will bring festive cheer for the whole family. Little ones can even jot down their wishlist to Santa at the letter-writing station.

Did we mention the food?
