The bubbles package is Dhs299 and it’s 2-for-1…

If you’re all about 808s and hearty plates (of food), roll your windows down and put the system up — we’re bringing the noise.

Any beat boy or beat girl will tell you, you can’t make good hip hop without good bars, and the very recently opened Alton at Bar and Bistro at the Shangri-La Souk looks like an absolute G. An appropriate place to stage the Abu Dhabi Hip Hop brunch then.

An Abu Dhabi state of mind

Taking place every Saturday between 1pm and 5pm, their bubbles package is just Dhs299 and it’s currently on a two-4-one deal, which means if you bring your ride-or-die, it’s just Dhs150 each. So even if, traditionally, birthdays were the worst days, here you can sip *redacted* if you’re thirstay.

And as with all the best rap shows, there’s an encore. You can hook directly into the after-brunch party between 5pm and 8pm with a bottomless drinks package for Dhs149 (or just Dhs99 if you were at the brunch).

Fire in the booth

Providing the soundtrack to your soul food feast is the Grand Master of capital drum loops, DJ Cliff Towney. The circuit-famous DJ will be making the bass cones bump to a signature slick mix of hip hop and R&B.

And it’s not just Saturdays that slap at Alton. From 10pm, Fridays also follow a hip hop, R&B and afrobeat sound selection, with special deals on drinks and eats throughout the night. Fridays are headlined by a true OG of the Abu Dhabi scene, DJ Allad.

Thursdays are for karaoke, tacos and those salt-rimmed Mexican party tipples (tacos and three blended bevs for Dhs99).

On Wenesdays we bingo. From 8pm, in addition to hunting for that house call, there’s a special promo that’s worth a clickety click — Dhs99 for three select drinks and unlimited chicken wings.

And of course there’s a ladies’ night. From 8pm senoras and senoritas get unlimited sips, 50 per cent off food, remixed with the sonic styles of DJ Cliff Towney.
