Watch the World Cup from The Penthouse’s pool

Palm Jumeirah rooftop spot set to be one of the coolest places to watch the football

World Cup

Looking for the coolest place in Dubai at which to watch all the World Cup action? Look no further, as The Penthouse at FIVE Palm Jumeirah is set to be it.

For its “VIP World Cup extravaganza”, the swanky rooftop spot (winner of Time Out Dubai’s Best Ladies’ Night 2018, and Highly Commended for Best New Nightlife Venue, no less) is pulling out all the stops.

Kicking off on Thursday June 14 at 7pm, The Penthouse is to be transformed. With multiple TV screens showcasing the game, all within a transparent air-conditioned tent, your view of the match will be as unrivalled as that of Dubai’s skyline.

With DJs and percussionists, expect a stadium-like atmosphere, plus deals on drinks including buckets of hops for Dhs180, pints for Dhs55 and a superb range of bar snacks such as beef sliders, sushi platters and gyozas, priced from Dhs50.

The Penthouse is also home to two swimming pools, one of which will face a huge screen showing all the matches – meaning you can cool off with a dip while watching the action heat up (details on pool day rates follow below).

Need more? You’re in luck. The venue will also be running a series of competitions including the chance to win tickets to the World Cup, and the chance to win the holiday of a lifetime – plus plenty more throughout the month.

Access to the bar is free of charge, with a minimum spend on VIP tables for large groups (and bookings recommended).

On the Marina side of the venue, however, it will be business as usual, with ladies’ night every Tuesday (featuring three free drinks), Rewind Wednesdays with Dubai’s DJ Tim Cheddar (who’ll be keeping the tunes as cheesy as ever), live DJs on Skyline Thursdays and party brunch Candypants every Saturday from noon until 8pm.

The daily pool pass deal is also still available from 11am to 7pm throughout the week, priced at Dhs400, including Dhs200 back in food and drink vouchers (plus a 45-minute massage on weekdays, subject to availability – don’t mind if we do…).

We know where we’ll be spending the best part of our summer…
