Palm Jumeirah rooftop set to be one of the best places to watch
Looking for the coolest place in Dubai at which to watch all the World Cup action? Look no further, as The Penthouse at FIVE Palm Jumeirah is set to be it.
For its “VIP World Cup extravaganza”, the swanky rooftop spot (winner of Time Out Dubai’s Best Ladies’ Night 2018, and Highly Commended for Best New Nightlife Venue, no less) is pulling out all the stops.
Kicking off on Thursday June 14 at 7pm, The Penthouse is to be transformed. With multiple TV screens showcasing the game, all within a transparent air-conditioned tent, your view of the match will be as unrivalled as that of Dubai’s skyline.
The Penthouse is also home to two swimming pools, one of which will face a huge screen showing all the matches – meaning you can cool off with a dip while watching the action heat up (details on pool day rates follow below).
Need more? You’re in luck. The venue will also be running a series of competitions including the chance to win tickets to the World Cup, and the chance to win the holiday of a lifetime – plus plenty more throughout the month.
There will also be a happy hour for qualifying games taking place at 4pm, which means for games on June 17, 18, 19, 20 and 24, between 4pm and 6pm, you’ll be able to get 50 percent off selected beverages.
Access to the bar is free of charge, with a minimum spend on VIP tables for large groups (and bookings recommended).
On the Marina side of the venue, however, it will be business as usual, with ladies’ night every Tuesday (featuring three free drinks), Rewind Wednesdays with Dubai’s DJ Tim Cheddar (who’ll be keeping the tunes as cheesy as ever), live DJs on Skyline Thursdays and party brunch Candypants every Saturday from noon until 8pm.
The daily pool pass deal is also still available from 11am to 7pm throughout the week, priced at Dhs400, including Dhs200 back in food and drink vouchers (plus a 45-minute massage on weekdays, subject to availability – don’t mind if we do…).
We know where we’ll be spending the best part of our summer…
