For long term Dubai expats, time here is marked before and after Long’s Bar. This month all are welcome to celebrates Long’s birthday, 18 years after opening at the Towers Rotana in Sheikh Zayed Road.
Appropriately named, the longest bar in the Middle East wants us to party like its 2000 with AED 18 for hops for 18 days, from 28th March to 14th April. Some of the cheapest beverages in Dubai will be served along with stand-up comedy from Mad Shadz every Wednesday and a nightly live band and DJ. For hungry revellers, there’s a birthday bash menu of 18 pub grub classics for under AED 100.
If all that wasn’t generous enough, prizes will be given away every Wednesday from 9pm to 11pm, with the chance to win weekend stays, Friday brunch and theme night dinners.
FYI, the hotel’s Teatro restaurant is consistently a good shout for dinner and has been filling bellies for as much time as Long’s has been topping up glasses.
Selected hops only. 12pm-3am. Long’s Bar, Towers Rotana, Sheikh Zayed Road. 04 312 2202.
