Best Early Happy Hour Deals around Dubai Marina

Most happy hours deals in Dubai start after work, which for most people is – around 5pm, or 6pm. Unfortunately this does not work for me, as that’s ‘dinner-time’ with the kids. For a lot of us who are able to sneak out earlier in the afternoon, an early mid-afternoon drink suits better. That way we can have one or two, and still get home in time to spend the rest of the evening with the family.

So here you go, a little list of early happy hours deals in and around Dubai Marina, which hopefully will be useful to the rest of you as well.

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.
