YNot bar in Dubai Marina is closing down

We've got some bad news for post-brunch partiers – YNot in Dubai Marina is closing down.

It was a popular hangout for the WeBrunch crowd who wanted to extend the fun well into the evening (and we should know, because it's nominated for one of our Music & Nightlife Awards).

From daily happy hours, a Tuesday ladies’ night and even cheese and grape offers, it had it all.

But in one month, YNot at Intercontinental Dubai Marina will be no more. At the moment, it's only hosting the Friday brunch after-party and keeping its doors closed for the rest of the week.

Then in a month, another company will take over and turn it into a Mexican venue – with the WeBrunch after-party moving somewhere else in the hotel.

The new place is set to open its doors over summer for a soft launch but we'll have more details on that for you in the coming weeks, so watch this space.

It's the latest in a spate of Dubai restaurants and bars which have shut their doors in recent months.

First it was The Music Room in Bur Dubai, then it was Morah in Business Bay.

Then just last week Loca 2.0 announced it was closing its doors – disappointing legions of taco and guacamole fans across the city.

YNot may be closing, but why not use it as an opportunity to check out somewhere new? There are loads of other options for post-brunch partying in Dubai.

This city is full of deals and happy hours to lighten the load on your wallet (especially since payday is two agonising weeks away).

Indeed, we've pulled together lists of the cheapest nights out and the best offers for each day of the week.
