Here’s what’s going down this week…
With the weekend now a fond memory, we’re looking to the week ahead. There’s plenty of fun things on the cards this week. Here’s our top picks for things to do in Dubai.
Sunday June 13
1. Extend the weekend with a new happy hour deal
The weekend might be over, but we can still pretend with a cheeky after-work happy hour deal. Between 6pm and 8pm, the newly renovated Seven Sisters is offering 30 per cent off the food menu and selected drinks at Dhs30. Beverages include spirits, as well as Beirut beer, wine (red, white, and rosé), and a selection of cocktails such as mojito, Aperol spritz, strawberry garden, Moscow mule, gin basil, passionfruit martini and espresso martini.

Monday June 14
2. Indulge in unlimited wings
Every Monday at Lock, Stock & Barrel JBR and Barsha Heights, guests can enjoy unlimited wings for Dhs99. Coated in either JD honey or buffalo hot sauce, munching through all those wings will be thirsty work so you’ll also get a JD cocktail to wash them down with.

3. Enjoy live jazz music in a secret bar
