Events in Dubai: Week 17-20 June 2018
This week started with Father’s day celebration in lots of restaurants around the city on Sunday 17 June 2018. Lots of activities happening across Dubai: there’s World Cup action, dinner deals, live entertainment and piano stars at Dubai Opera.
Do you have a World Cup fever? Here a list of some places where you can watch the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Dubai
The Scene by Simon Rimmer, Pier 7, Dubai Marina, daily 8am to 2am.
The first England match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup is this Monday, and where better to watch it than at an English beer garden? The Scene has transformed into an indoor garden just in time for the World Cup and is offering drinks deals for the girls and guys – whether you’re watching the match or not. There’s five drinks for Dhs175 and three bar bites for Dhs99.
XL Dubai, Habtoor Grand, Dubai Marina, daily June 14 to July 15, Dhs70 plus 2 drinks, Dhs100 plus 3 drinks
If you’re looking for a little luxury with your footie, then XL Dubai has your covered. The 400 pax fully-air conditioned club will be showing every game of the tournament on two massive screens, with an additional six plasma tellys dotted about the venue. International and local DJs will be spinning for all the big games, and you can expect drinks deals on buckets of hops, as well as a special World Cup-friendly menu.
Atlantis, The Palm Jumeirah, daily 14 June to 15 July, Dhs100 for guys, free for ladies.
Atlantis is going big for the World Cup this year with a massive tent that can hold a whopping 2,000 fans in what it’s calling the Atlantis World Cup Fan Zone. From the tournament kick-off until the last whistle blows at the final, you can experience every goal, tackle and dodgy referee call on a giant 28 square metre screen as it happens, live from Russia. Hardcore fans can hang out in “The Stadium” to immerse themselves in the action, while “The Beach” area offers a more chilled-out vibe complete with a gaming corner. Stadium-style snacks, hops buckets and drinks specials will be available, with a minimum Dhs100 spend for guys (including two drinks), while ladies get in free.
Barasti Beach, Le Meridien Dubai Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina, daily June 14 – July 15, free entry
The Barasti Superdome is back. Spread across two massive levels at Dubai’s most popular beachside bar, the city’s most ambitious football venue can accommodate up to 8,000 punters per game and will feature two ‘Fan Zones’ – a purpose-built dome on the beach, as well as an air-conditioned middle deck. If you’re looking to party with like-minded football fanatics, then it won’t likely get much rowdier than here.
