After a lot of googling and Insta stalking (it’s called research), here’s a listing put together for myself and for many others out there who are looking for the same info.
You are here because you are looking for a casual evening out with your friends, your partner, and you would like some chilled live music (acoustic set) – with some sort of drink deals – ladies night, gent nights, or similar. All mums and dads deserve a nice night out every so often – and it’s just so much better with an acoustic set, isn’t it?
Cove Beach Unplugged
- Timing : 8:00 – 11:00 pm
- Deal : Unlimited drinks and 2 selected bites for 199 AED
- Who is playing : Various – Jay Abo, Gari Deegan, Lexie, Sean Lipsey, Greg Pearson, etc
- How was Cove Beach Unplugged, back in July?
McGett-Together at McGettigans JLT
- Timing : 6:00 – 10:00 pm
- Deal : 3 free drinks when purchasing a 50 AED food voucher
- Who is playing : Jess Cotton Duo and Kara Gray / Schedule for live music for rest of the week
- My take : It’s a pretty good offer to do if you want to head out with your other half and catch up with friends as this applies to both boys and girls. The crowd at McGs is therefore mix, and as it always has been – very laid-back with people dropping in straight after work as it does start early at 6pm. Food is mostly 60 AED + so you’ll top up a little – still a good deal though. Only downside? 10 years on, it’s still a very smokey venue – indoors and outdoors.
