Aquara Lounge
The deal: Buy one selected drink and get one free daily 6pm-7.30pm
The place: For a very happy hour-and-a-half, you can buy one drink, get one free at this Dubai Marina Yacht Club bar. Although be warned: while women, it seems, are free to wear whatever they please, boys should leave the flip flops at home, as they’ll find themselves turned away for attempting to place an exposed toe over the threshold. A range of bar snacks is available, including dim sum, potato wedges, olives and feta, for a relatively reasonable Dhs30 a pop – though we do wish they’d shake up the menu once in a while.
The dress code: Smart casual
The details: Dubai Marina Yacht Club (04 362 7900).
