6 Dubai weeknight deals
Some may say that Dubai is an expensive city, but there are plenty of bargains to be had. Those in the know can go out every night of the week and never pay full price on food or drink. Luckily, we’ve found one of those people. Our F&B ShortLister, Paul Medawar from LUCIDubai, makes it his business to know every deal the city has to offer. Here, he rounds up his favourites for the week ahead.
China Grill, The Westin – Dine & Stay
Am I the only one who finds it hard to leave China Grill? It’s a cultivated experience right from the moment that you arrive, with lounge-restaurant atmosphere and plenty of themed nights. If I was to tell you that they’re doing a AED799 set menu for two people, you might be interested. If I told you that they’re going to nurse you through the inevitable separation process by putting you up in The Westin for the night, for free, maybe you’d be more willing to deal with the inevitable tough goodbyes.
Deal: AED799 for dinner and an overnight stay

Solo Bistronomia, Raffles Hotel – Genius Loci & Solo Aperitivo (Tuesday & Saturday)
My final recommendations are two separate offers on two separate nights, but at the same venue. Genius Loci runs on Tuesdays after 6pm, and they’re offering a five cheese and house grape, selected by their expert sommelier, for AED120. Alternatively Solo Aperitivo means that your Saturday evening drinks will be complimented by free canapés. Offers or not, it’s sounding like Solo Bistronomia should definitely be on your list.
Deals: Tuesdays – cheese and house beverages for AED120. Saturdays – drinks with free canapés.
