Feel Gorgeous ladies’ night at Grapeskin
We love this cool, industrial bar for its extra-casual approach. And it’s got a new ladies’ night deal that involves a cheeseboard to share, along with two glasses of grape per person. That’s right. Free cheese.
Free. Wed 8pm-11pm. La Ville Hotel & Suites, City Walk Dubai, Autograph Collection, Al Safa Street (04 403 3111).
Jukebox Brunch at Lucky Voice
Lucky Voice’s Friday feast has proved so popular that you’ll struggle to get a reservation (it books up weeks in advance). But worry, not, as there’s a brand-new mid-week evening offer, that we’re told involves group karaoke in the main bar area (with inflatable microphone props), as well as unlimited food and beverages. Get down early, between 2pm and 8pm, and you can get two-for-one beverages, too.
Dhs150 (soft drinks), Dhs250 (house beverages), Dhs295 (premium package). Wed 8pm-11pm. Grand Millennium Dubai, Barsha Heights (800 58259).
Ladies’ night at Le Petit Belge
This new, contemporary Belgian spot looks like it will be giving other long-established bars in the city a run for their money. It features delicious, hearty dishes and a sleek, modern setting, and has an unbeatable ladies’ night deal. Gals get 50 percent off food, plus unlimited grape and mixed beverages during the day… and all night.
Free. Wed 4pm-2am. Pullman Dubai Jumeirah Lakes Towers Hotel & Residence, Cluster T, JLT (04 242 7794).
The Boom Room at Stereo Arcade
The pub area of Stereo Arcade has relaunched as a brand-new hip-hop, funk, R&B and electronica venue. Now an alternative club with an urban vibe, it’s set to play host to live music from some of Dubai’s best up-and-coming artists, providing a much-needed platform for the region’s budding live hip-hop scene. Expect themes from funk to vinyl DJ classics.
Daily 6pm-3am. DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Dubai – Jumeirah Beach, JBR (052 618 2424).
Vibe at XL Dubai
Another venue to undergo a nip and tuck this summer, XL Dubai is also back with a brand-new look. It has been transformed into an intimate indoor venue – think leather seats, tiled floors and gilt mirrors lining the walls – with a clubby atmosphere, A/C, dance shows atop the island bar and a new themed night every Friday – Vibe. Catch DJs Kaboo, Lucasdirty and Keza playing club anthems.
Free. Fri 10pm-3am. Habtoor Grand Resort, Autograph Collection, Dubai Marina (04 454 2927).
