A new house party and a crazy bingo night out have launched at JBR sports bar Girders, with two other nuts nights out coming in February to boot.
If you head down to the JA Ocean View Hotel on The Walk in JBR this Friday (February 9), you’ll come across the Girders House Party, a pop-up party concept that’s come all the way over from the US, with plenty of regular events being lined up. Kicking off the first gig on February 9 is local pop and funk rockers Carl & The Reda Mafia, who recently took on a residency at Blues Bay in DWTC and also supported Bon Jovi in their visit to the UAE last year.
If that’s not enough, the tidal wave of alternative nights out that’s been generated since the arrival of Bongo’s Bingo last year has spread to the Girders Friday brunch. Now known as the Crazy Bingo Friday Brunch (on top of the McGettigan’s Bingo Wings night that has just been launched), expect “crazy bingo”, a talent contest and huge prizes to be won at this five-hour brunch, running from noon until 5pm. The bingo isn’t the only thing that’s crazy, with this brunch available for just Dhs210 per person for unlimited house drinks.
Alternatively, Thursdays are all about the ’80s with a three-hour unlimited house drinks package available for Dhs160 between 9pm and 1am, with a DJ spinning old-school classic tunes all night long. Finally, Girders has also launched a twice-monthly comedy night, taking place tonight (February 5) as well as Monday February 19, March 5 and 19. Head down from 7.30pm until 10pm, where there’s no entry fee but a minimum spend on tables of Dhs80 per person.
So whether you’re after comedy, an alternative brunch, a huge house party or a retrotastic night out – there’s plenty on offer in JBR this month.
Open Sun-Thu 4pm-3am; Fri noon-3am; Sat 11am-3am. JA Ocean View Hotel, JBR (04 814 5599).
