Christmas in Dubai 2019: Pre-Christmas parties

December means one thing: Christmas parties. And if you, like us, can't wait to get cracking (ahem) with the festivities, you'll want to check out some of Dubai's super pre-Christmas parties. From brunches to comedy nights, there are loads of festive shindigs to check out.

Cirque de Cuisine – The Frozen Edition
As far as we can tell this massive festive bash at Atlantis The Palm doesn’t have anything to do with the Disney movie. What we do know is that it’s an absolutely massive dine-around Christmas brunch with unlimited drinks, dishes from Nobu, Hakkasan, Bread Street Kitchen and more – plus a live DJ, circus performances and more.
From Dhs495. Thu Dec 5, 7pm-11pm (after-party 11pm-2.30am). Atlantis the Palm, Palm Jumeirah,

Pre-Christmas brunch at McGettigan’s JLT
The popular Irish spot in Dubai's JLT is getting into the Christmas mood by throwing its big Jingle Bell Brunch, so if you want to swap pressies and pull crackers with your mates before you fly home for Christmas – this is for you. Expect a traditional Christmas-themed buffet, cheesy Christmas hits and much more on Friday December 13 from 1pm
until 5pm.
Dhs230 (Jingle Bell Brunch). Fri Dec 13, 1pm-5pm. Cluster J, JLT (04 356 0470).

Comedy Christmas at The Laughter Factory
Forget ‘ho ho ho’, Santa will be letting out a good ol’ ‘ha ha ha’ as Dubai's The Laughter Factory has revealed a cracking party to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. Taking place at JBR’s Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach on Thursday December 12, prepare for a combination of belly laughter, a five-star buf-fet and free-flowing beverages – all with a Christmassy twist.
Dhs150 (soft drinks), Dhs225 (house beverages). Thu Dec 12, 9pm. Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach, JBR (050 8786728).

Mulled grape festival at Grapeskin
There will be more than 50 types of mulled grape on offer at this Christmas festival, with various stalls dotted around the courtyard of grape bar Grapeskin. There’s also live entertainment. Drinks start at Dhs40 a glass, with no minimum spend.
From Dhs40. Fri Dec 20, 6pm-midnight. La Ville Hotel & Suites, City Walk, Al Safa Street (054 309 5948).
