If there’s one thing McGettigan’s in Dubai knows how to do, it’s giving us a blast of nostalgic tunes to groove to, and things are looking no different at its Souk Madinat Jumeirah branch, with celebrations ramping up for the bar's third birthday.
To celebrate the occassion, the popular Irish spot is throwing a massive "80s Birthday Brunch Bonanza", and it's bringing in three live acts to perform at Madinat Jumeirah’s amphitheatre.
Taking place on Friday October 18 from noon until 6pm, the six-hour brunch will see Irish ’80s group Spring Break take to the stage in some old-school get-up, performing high-energy, fist-pumping floor-fillers from the ’80s.
Partygoers can also see UAE rock band The Shots hitting the stage, along with DJ Darren spinning the decks.
As for the brunch itself, there will be unlimited drinks and McGettigan’s cracking pub grub, plus a solid spread of buffet options and an à la carte menu.
Fancy getting in on the action? The brunch is priced at Dhs333, and you can get yourself booked in by calling 04 447 0219 or by visiting www.mcgettigans.com/madinat-dubai.
That’s not all, though, because the birthday shenanigans kick off on Thursday October 17, with plenty of drink deals and the same live acts throughout the night.
You can get three drinks for the price of one from 6pm until 9pm, along with three short measures for Dhs33. There’s also a three-hour unlimited beverage package for Dhs169 from 8.30pm until 11.30pm.
Speaking of throwback events, legendary Bollywood singers are bringing back the ’90s in a one-night concert this October.
