Dubai gents' nights, because girls shouldn't have all the fun
Rather than feeling left out of a Tuesday night shindig, when the missus can eat, drink and be merry for less than the price of a cab from the Marina to JLT, we should embrace the fact this beautiful city gives our other halves every opportunity to let their hair down.
Pink slip, or otherwise, if you’ve ever had the sensation of being hen-pecked, get the gang together and enjoy the camaraderie. Once a month,
or same time next week...
If ever you were sure the other half really doesn’t ‘get’ you, the proof is indubitably in the pudding at Girders. Big screens for as far as they can see, plus two-for-one deals on drinks and 30 percent off meaty goodness makes Saturday a prime time for us fellas.

The original bad boy when it comes to a lads’ night out, McGettigan’s in DWTC brought us a ‘man den’ well before we even realised we needed one. Free pool all night, plus two-for-one hops deals. Let’s get it on...

It’s all about Happy Mondays at this cheeky little number in Media City. Two free drinks for the gents, plus an untold amount of banter, will soon make you realise even the most tiresome of pre-hump day chat is not where us keyboard warriors are at.
