The world is preparing to watch the total lunar eclipse tomorrow (Friday July 27). And what’s the best way to watch it? With an eclipse-themed beverage in hand to mark the occasion, we say.

For one night only from 11.30pm onwards, Weslodge Saloon and Hotel Cartagena at the top of JW Marriott Marquis Dubai are giving out 103 completely free beverages at each venue.

Watchers of the blood-coloured moon can expect red and black short drinks to celebrate the rare event.

The drinks will be handed out on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to head to floors 68 and 72 of the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai early enough.

The number of drinks being distributed isn’t random, as the total lunar eclipse will take one hour, 42 minutes 57 seconds, which is 103 minutes.

This will be the 21st century’s longest total lunar eclipse, as the Earth’s shadow will cover the moon making it turn blood red during a total lunar eclipse.

Miss the chance to nab a beverage? Not to worry, head down the next day as Weslodge Saloon is extending its happy hour on a Saturday from 5.30pm until 2am.

Throughout the summer, guests can enjoy two-for-one deals on all drinks until the early hours of the morning, along with vintage hip-hop and R&B beats from DJ Rich E on the decks.
Eclipse: Free. Fri Jul 27, 11.30pm onwards. Happy Hour: Prices vary. Every Sat, 5.30pm-2am. Hotel Cartagena: Open daily 5.30pm-3am, (04 560 1799); Weslodge Saloon: Open daily 6pm-2am, (04 560 1700).
