From blue to fondue, here are the best cheese night deals in Dubai
We love cheese. Thankfully, Dubai has a number of spots serving up giant plates of the stuff, often paired with drinks at a great-value price. Here are some brilliant nights to finish your weekdays off with – just don’t blame us if you end up with weird dreams.
Bazxar Head to this DIFC bar and restaurant to try the “Cellar ‘n Cheddar” night every Tuesday, with a selection ranging from warm Brie and Manchego to gorgonzola. Set aside Dhs175 to entertain your taste buds with free-flowing grape and a supply of cheese. Dhs175. Tue 8pm-11pm. Ongoing. Precinct Building 4, DIFC, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 355 1111).
caféM This chic destination has lined up a set of cheesy nights throughout the week. Relax after a day at work with unlimited grape and cheese for Dhs199 on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. Venture across Europe’s cheese pallet on Tuesday, enjoy a classic cheese fondue with a selection of breads on Wednesday or complete a hat-trick of cheese nights on Thursday with Brie and grape all in the name of what the restaurant is calling “Cheesefest”. We like the sound of that. From Dhs150. Tue-Thu 7pm-10pm. Ongoing. Media One Hotel, Dubai Media City (04 427 1000).
La Farine This French restaurant in Business Bay claims to have the best baguette in the whole of Dubai. A bold claim, but it is offering up a huge range of accompanying French cheeses and fresh grapes (and in this instance we mean the actual fruit, not the drink). For Dhs160, make your Thursday night with unlimited cheese and a light-hearted atmosphere. Dhs160. Thu 6pm-9pm. Ongoing. JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, Business Bay (04 414 3000).
Publique You may have seen videos going viral showing melted cheese being scraped off a wedge of raclette, and at Publique you can live the dream. While the sight of melting cheese is mesmerising enough, eating it is obviously better, and you can scrape your way through summer with a bargain deal every day until the end of September.
