Afterwork Drinks @ Nonya, Taj JLT Dubai

To add on to the detailed coverage of Nonya, this piece highlights their Afterwork Drinks offer – another way to call what we all know as ‘Happy Hour’ in Dubai.


If you are feeling a little thirsty on a schoolday, and want to catch up with a friend – pop into Nonya for a quick one. Their Afterwork Drinks offer happens every Monday to Thursdays between 5-8pm, and Fridays between 3-8pm. I like that they have decided to make it early on Fridays (thanks!)


The offer is 98 AED for 2 drinks and 2 bar bites OR 3 drinks. It’s a pretty good one, considering one cocktail is priced around 60 AED in their Ala Carte Drinks Menu.

Plus, it’s not just easy pours. They do really good cocktails – ones that they they have curated themselves with asian ingredients such as lychee, elderflower, butterfly pea tea, yuzu, amongst others.

My favourite would probably be the Merlion – this is made with vodka, lychee, lemon, elderflower and butterfly pea tea. Love the colours, and the detail.

There are a selection of starters that you can choose from as well. We didn’t get the chance to try everything on offer in the Afterwork Drinks menu – though the truffle lotus stem and cereal chicken I do recommend.

Have a look at their After Work Menu here.

Overall Thoughts

Afterwork drinks at Nonya is definitely a pretty good deal – especially if you appreciate a proper cocktail, with a view. Stay indoors, if it’s warm, and pop out when the sun goes down for the breathtaking views. And if you wanna stay on for dinner, have a read through our detailed review of what they have to offer here.

Dubai resident. Stays most of the time in the marina as she can't be bothered going anywhere else after work and in the weekends. Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.
