Following on from last year’s massive, Dubai-wide cucumber campaign, DXB Cucumber Day is back for 2019, and this year it’s not just a day, or a month, but it’s a full six weeks of dedicated juniper mixed drinks – plus a huge festival to top it all off.
And the festival is going to be completely free.
Six weeks of deals will kick off on Sunday September 8 and some 35 bars are going to be getting in on the action.
Venues from Dubai Marina, to Bluewaters Dubai, to JLT, DIFC, Business Bay and beyond are all going to hosting special deals and offers on juniper mixed drinks.
The full list is below, but current bars signed up to take part include Morimoto at the Renaissance Hotel Downtown Dubai, Gold on 27 at the Burj Al Arab, McGettigan’s in JLT and Souk Madinat Jumeirah, Treehouse at Taj Dubai, The London Project on Bluewaters and folly by Nick & Scott in Souk Madinat Jumeirah.
Soho Garden at Meydan is also taking place, and will host a massive two-day festival at the end of the series on Thursday October 17 and Friday 18.
The festival will be free to enter, will have live music and a mystery headliner that’s yet to be announced (but is worth getting excited about), plus the cucumber exchange deal which offers free juniper beverages in exchange for the green fruit (yes, fruit).
More info to come, so stay tuned.
