For entertainers: the First Group restaurants and bars

When: All day, until restrictions are lifted

You have to feel for Dubai’s entertainers, musicians and DJs – since the ban on live entertainment in Dubai hotels and restaurants came into effect on January 21, the people who bring the colour to our brunches and bars have had their income slashed. The First Group is showing its support by offering a 50 per cent discount for musicians and performers across its portfolio of restaurants and bars. Enjoy half-price food and drinks at the Blacksmith Bar and Eatery, MasterChef, the TV Experience, Soluna Bar and Lounge, Lola Taberna Española, Brambles, Beastro, Local and Alloro. The discount is valid for you and up to three guests, and all you need to do is show them a performance notice or a photo of you performing in a Dubai venue.

At participating First Group venues, including The Blacksmith Bar and Eatery, MasterChef, the TV Experience, Soluna Bar and Lounge, Lola Taberna Española, Brambles, Beastro, Local and Alloro. Reservations required. Not applicable with other offers or brunches.
