Time Out Dubai's Voucher Issue is back! Get your copy of this week's magazine - out on December 21 for just Dhs7 - for an incredible 302 special offers.
We ran our last voucher issue in May this year and it sold out within days, becoming the biggest-selling issue in Time Out Dubai's 11-year history – so we guess that you share our enthusiasm for two-for-one discounts.
In this issue, we’ve scoured the city for 302 quality vouchers (one more than last time, we might add), redeemable at Dubai’s top restaurants, serene spas and liveliest nightspots, and more. Here is a selection of the great 2-for-1 vouchers included in this very special of issues.
2 for 1 drinks at Bahri Bar
With its sea views and sophisticated ambiance, Madinat-based Bahri Bar is one of our favourite stops for a tipple. We’ve always wondered why the venue isn’t busier on week nights and weekends, though we imagine this will change when readers get their hands on this voucher, valid for selected beverages. Cheers!
Mina A’Salam, Madinat Jumeirah (04 366 6730).
2 for 1 family portrait print at The Studio7
Everyone secretly covets a soft-focus, black-and-white portrait of their loved ones wearing matching roll-necks and cheesy smiles. No? Maybe that’s just us. Nonetheless, this voucher for The Studio is a great opportunity to get the family together for a rather nice keepsake (soft-focus and matching roll-necks optional) – it would make a great Christmas present.

2 for 1 festive brunch aboard Bateaux Dubai
Get into the Christmas spirit aboard one of Dubai’s most iconic restaurants. Bateaux Dubai will be bobbing up and down the creek, serving three courses of top-notch Christmas fare with free-flowing drinks. The singer and pianist will also reel off your favourite Christmas tunes.
Dubai Creek, opposite British Embassy, www.reservations.bateauxdubai.com (04 399 4994).
2 for 1 fishing trip with Xclusive Yachts
The weather’s just right for a lazy Friday morning bobbing about off the coast of Dubai and, importantly, the water temperature is perfect for reeling in anything from blackfish to barracuda. What’s more, Xclusive Yachts knows where to head for the best catch.
Unit 9, Dubai Marina Yacht Club, Dubai Marina, www.xclusiveyachts.com (04 432 7233).
2 for 1 on bar menu items at Rivington Bar
Dubai’s newest outlet of London restaurant Rivington Grill, at the Madinat Jumeirah, has proved a real hit. Not only is the food of the same high quality as we’ve become accustomed to at the Souk Al Bahar venue, but this newer outlet features a great bar upstairs, complemented by a fantastic al-fresco terrace. The bar menu offerings are a great way to sample the Rivington’s repertoire without having to sit down for a full meal.
Souk Madinat Jumeirah, www.rivingtongrill.ae (04 366 6464).
2 for 1 on bar menu items at The Ivy
We’re real fans of The Ivy’s bar area – the slick aesthetic is enhanced by professional service, and the resulting mixed drinks are great. We’re equally impressed by the recently relaunched brasserie-style bar menu, which offers dishes such as Ivy sliders (with cheese and fried quail eggs) and the fish goujons and chips, with minted pea purée. What’s more, if you head to the Emirates Towers venue on Tuesday or Thursday, you’ll be serenaded by live jazz tunes.
Jumeirah Emirates Towers, www.theivy.ae (04 319 8767).
2 for 1 one-hour physio session with Emirates Home Nursing
We’ve all done it – put off a much-needed visit to the physiotherapist to sort out that knotted shoulder or irksome sprain, simply because we don’t have time to visit the clinic. However, Emirates Home Nursing, as the company’s name suggests, sends qualified physiotherapists directly to your home to administer treatment and expert advice. Treatments include graded strengthening and endurance treatment, as well as soft-tissue massage and myofascial release.
Al Tayer Building, Office 103, Sheikh Zayed Road, www.emirateshomenursing.ae (04 380 4143).
2 for 1 Sunday roast at the Underground
What better way to finish the first day of the week than with a traditional English roast dinner? The Underground is offering the chance to wolf down two of its roast dinners for the price of one (you can even ask a friend to help, if you want). The pub screens live English Premier League matches on Sundays, making it a must for famished football fans.
The Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa, Dubai Marina (04 408 4444).
2 for 1 one-hour body massage and 30-minute body scrape at Chill Spa
Chill Spa, based in Bur Dubai, is perfect for pampering. Not only does this voucher cover a full-body massage, but also a body scrape treatment, ensuring you’ll emerge with muscles relaxed and skin glowing.
Royal Ascot Hotel, Khalid Bin Walid Street, Bur Dubai, www.chillspa.ae (04 3690 902).
20 for 10 yoga lessons at Balance Wellness
If ever you needed an extra nudge to get into yoga, then here it is: Balance Wellness Club is offering 20 yoga lessons for the price of ten. Balance runs different yoga classes at various times throughout the week.
