Tap out Tuesdays
It’s not just about flipping burgers it’s about throwing shapes, too, at one of Dubai’s favourite joints. Tap Out Tuesdays will transform Black Tap from 8pm onwards as DJ Katerina steps up to the ones and twos to spin old school RnB and hip hop tracks into the small hours. And what better way to work off your meal than to trot out an energetic “Running Man” routine. The fun continues at Black Tap on Thursday nights from July 19 as they launch Throwback Thursdays – another big night that will play out to some equally classic tunes.

Thursday nights are for the gents at Oeno now. Between 8pm and 11pm, you can grab an all-inclusive offer for AED249 that gives you free-flow food and hops to really kick the weekend off in style. Not to be left out, ladies can help themselves to three complimentary drinks on the night or enjoy the happy hour between 11pm and close.

The House Party Bar
Prepare to be teleported back to the 90s in this brand-new retro themed bar. Riffing on the house party theme, you can dip into a games room with a Nintendo and a ‘Beirut’ setup, you can have pizza delivered in a box and the soundtrack is covers all the cheesy hits from Britney and N*Sync to Nirvana and Michael Jackson.
