Do you love St. Patrick’s Day so much that you just can’t wait for your next fill of green-tinted celebrations, novelty hats and cracking craic?
Following on from its debut appearance on the Dubai nightlife calendar last year, one of the city’s top Irish bars is bringing back St. Practice Day, and it’s going to be an absolutely mega affair.
It’s all in the name of getting ready for the big day itself (which is, of course, six months later), but a bit of preparation – and a good old shin dig – never hurt anyone, right?
McGettigan’s JLT will be hosting a huge five-hour brunch to mark the occasion on Friday September 7, so bust out your Irish flags, your big green wigs and any other paraphernalia from the Emerald Isle, and head on down from 1pm until 6pm for the huge brunch, which will set you back Dhs269 per person.
There’s then a three-hour drinks package offering unlimited drinks for Dhs199, and then from 8pm until 10pm there’s a half-price happy hour on Irish drinks, including short measures.
Of course, you can expect top Irish larks all day long, including back-to-back live music from the bar’s resident Irish bands, including Suckin Diesel, The Gentlemen Barstewards and U2 tribute band The Joshua Tree – one of the top tribute acts around and flying in from Ireland especially for the event.
This is one you definitely won’t want to miss out on.
Dhs269. Fri Sep 7 1pm-6pm. Bonnington Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Cluster J, JLT (04 378 0800).
