Check out a new pub

Following the opening of McCafferty’s JVC in Circle Mall on Saturday, September 11, a mere four days later another new branch of the Irish-born pub opened on September 15 at Al Furjan Club House. It takes over the glasshouse restaurant space in the clubhouse. The new McCafferty’s in Al Furjan will be open daily from 10am to 2am, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as a dedicated kids’ menu. A daily happy hour runs from 3pm to 8pm with selected wine, bubbles, draught beer and spirits priced at Dhs33. There are also buckets of beers too.

McCafferty’s Al Furjan, Al Furjan Club House, Dubai, open daily from 10am to 2am. @mccaffertysalfurjan

Enjoy authentic Thai food

Family-run Thai restaurant Sticky Rice has reopened for dine-in customers after several months of delivery-only dining. Not only that, it has expanded its space, now offering more seating for customers. The modern venue is injected with life and colour, with a little help from its mascot Kew. If you’re yet to sample Sticky Rice’s famed cooking, you’re in for a real treat. From the warm, welcoming staff to the last bite of tasty fried rice, the experience will make you feel right at home.

Sticky Rice, Jumeirah Village Circle, daily 12pm to 10pm, take-away, delivery or dine-in. @stickyriceae
