Señores and señoritas, listen up. Time Out Dubai is hosting a sparkling pre-Christmas dinner party at Spanish restaurant España on Thursday December 14, to which you’re invited – and you’re not going to want to miss it.
Set in Dubai’s Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, the restaurant boasts a menu of both authentic, modern Iberian dishes, in addition to skilled mixologists and classic Spanish mixed drinks on draft (yes, really, and it’s the only restaurant in the whole city to do so).
There’s also a resident DJ to keep you dancing throughout the night, plus state-of-the-art audio visuals, food served until 2am, and a stunning Andalucia Terrace overlooking a tranquil Japanese fish pond.
Throughout the week the restaurant also serves up a range of brilliant events and offers, including Señorita Tuesdays, with three free Spanish mixed drinks for ladies from 8pm until midnight, followed by Latin Ladies’ Night Wednesdays (yes, back-to-back ladies’ nights), with three free drinks and 25 percent off food, plus thrilling salsa dancing with Ric Banks from 10pm until 3am. There’s also a delicious Spanish brunch from noon until 4pm on Fridays, priced at just Dhs199 with soft drinks, Dhs229 with house beverages and a brilliant-value Dhs279 with premium drinks, plus the Saturday Siesta, featuring free-flowing Spanish mixed drinks and tapas for just Dhs199 between 12.30pm and 4pm. Oh and live music on Thursdays. And did we mention the daily happy hour from 4pm through to 8pm?
But Thursday December 14 is set to be an extra-special evening, with a Spanish Christmas menu. While the festive menu is available until December 24, for one night only Time Out readers can enjoy a special price of just Dhs169 for a four-course meal (normally Dhs199), and Dhs235 including a jug of Spanish mixed drink with a Christmas twist (normally Dhs275). Throughout the evening, there will also be a special drinks offer, with Christmas mixed drinks priced at just Dhs45, draft hops for Dhs35, and classic Spanish mixed drinks (both traditional and Christmas-inspired) for Dhs45 per glass and Dhs95 per litre jug.
What’s more, Cuban duo Salsa Express will be performing a range of both Spanish and English songs, will España’s resident DJ will also be spinning hits into the small hours.
We’ll see you on the dancefloor. Arriba!
