Ice water pool party in town on Friday Aug 4

Massive dumps of ice every hour, on the hour, at big Business Bay bash

Looking for a Friday bash with a twist? This is promising to be the coldest party you can find.

It might be International Hops Day tomorrow, and the perfect occasion to get your hands on a pint, but it also happens to be OYE Cinco at the Steigenburger Hotel in Business Bay, and it is pulling out all the stops this week.

The pool party is promising, quite literally, the coolest night in town this week. Bring your swimmers and take the plunge, because they’re dumping 100kg of ice into the big pools every hour of the night, and showering out ice-cold water to go with it. Initially, OYE says they tried filling paddling pools with ice to help beat the heat, but it just wasn’t enough. So if the heat gets a little bit too close for comfort, take the plunge.

It’s not just about the ice, though, because there’s a stack of offers and three awesome DJs spinning world music that has left us constantly reaching for Shazam on previous visits. There’s also a hops pong tournament, where the winner walks away with some big prizes.

Emirates Cabin Crew get free cold Spanish red grape between 6pm and 9pm as well, with additional drinks promos across the evening. So if you’re looking for a funky Friday night soiree this week, look no further. It’s free, but RSVPing online is always advised – go to to register.

Free. Fri Aug 4 6pm-2am. Steigenberger Hotel Business Bay Dubai, Business Bay (04 369 0000).
