6. Get spooked for Halloween early this year with an epic ‘Dine in the Dark’ experience

This is a must for all Halloween lovers!

We’re not kids anymore, so it’s sometimes difficult to recreate the magic of Halloween, (like when you go a party, and only half of the crowd dresses up, what’s up with that?).

So a spooky experience has launched in Dubai, and it’s WELL WORTH your time if you’re up for a scare.

Noire is the ‘dine in the dark’ experience in Fairmont and for the whole month of Halloween it’s taken a spooky turn. Starting from the moment you enter the elevator; prepare to jump out of your skin as there might well be people waiting for you in the dark. It’s creepy in the best way! The food and drinks are spooky-themed, but you’re eating in PITCH BLACK.

When? From 1-31 October at Noire.
To book please call +971 4 311 8316 or email

5. The Rugby World Cup is ongoing and you can get a free pint of the black stuff EVERY weekday
