March Happenings!

We’re well and truly in 2012 now and despite the sandstorms of late and the cooler temperatures, Spring in Dubai is on its way. We’ve got a wealth of special offers for our guests & visitors in March to celebrate Spring, Dubai, and, well, life in general:

You’ll have heard that we’re starting a fabulous Friday Family Brunch in our Cavendish Restaurant on 9th March and you can even get your kids to win you vouchers for it – see here.

Oh, and if you haven’t heard about our new brunch yet, you can listen to the radio advert here.

March is not all about brunch, of course! We’ve got many other options to keep you entertained:

In our Authors’ Lounge, we’re offering an Irish Whiskey Flight in March. Pop in, settle in one of our comfortable armchairs and sample a glass of Jameson 12yr, Jameson 18yr, and Jameson Vintage for only AED 115 per person!

If all the whiskey makes you hungry, the dessert of the month in the Authors’ Lounge in March is Vanilla Pannacotta with poached strawberries & caramel – sweetly priced at only AED 30 per portion.

Next door in our Healey’s Bar & Terrace, you can sample our cocktail of the month: Strawberry Daiquiri (AED 35) or we’ve got different cocktails of the week for you, too: March starts with a Margarita, moves to a Mango Collins, followed by a Manhattan, before it ends with a Brandy Alexander. Every cocktail of the week is also only AED 35.

Oh, and shisha (hubbly bubbly) is back at the Bonnington! After a short break, we’re serving a multitude of shisha flavours every evening on our Healey’s Terrace!

Not a fan of alcohol? Chill out on our Leisure Deck and try the mocktail of the month: Strawberry Flower Smoothie – only a very smooth AED 25 per portion.

Returning to the Cavendish, March’s dessert of the month is Strawberry & Hazelnut ‘Eton Mess’ (AED 30) and wine-wise, we’re showcasing Italy and offer you a choice of a 2009 Gabbiano Pinot Grigio or a 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon (Nadaria, Cusumano) as our wines of the month (AED 145/bottle).

Also, don’t forget, our Cavendish Lunch Express is still available every weekday!

Lastly, March is of course the month of the year when things are turning green at the Bonnington for St. Patrick’s Day! This year’s festival is even bigger and better than last year’s and features several live concerts by well-known Irish bands and musicians, as well as activities for kids. You can find out more on St. Patrick’s Day in Dubai – the official St. Patrick’s Day blog.

What’s happening at the Bonnington this week and some recent press clippings…

We’ve got plenty of offers lined up for you all throughout February! In our Authors Lounge, we’re offering a Tea Tasting special and you can try any three of our more than 12 loose leaf teas for only AED 30.

In our Cavendish Restaurant in the meantime, February is Australian wine month and you can sample some outstanding red and white wines for only AED 145/bottle:

We’re also offering grilled Canadian lobster with garlic butter, French fries and salad for only AED 195/portion in February.

Pre- or post-dinner, you should really pop into our Healey’s Bar where our bartenders are mixing different cocktails of the week every week throughout the month. From 5th to 11th of February, try a Bolshoi Basil (Basil leaves with vodka & lemon juice, served over crushed ice) for only AED 35!

Don’t forget that Valentine’s Day is coming up and we have a special Wine dinner in our Cavendish Restaurant! A few seats are still available, so hurry & book today!

The last few weeks were probably too cold to spend much time outside, but now that the temperatures are on the up, it’s the perfect time to visit our Leisure Deck and chill out at our Pool Bar. There’s home-made icecream for only AED 12/tub, and the Food special for February is Caprese Salad with fresh roma tomato, buffalo mozzarella, fresh basil & balsamic reduction (AED 49/portion). between 5th – 11th February, you can also try “Pomme” – our mocktail of the Week, which is made with fresh mint leafs, lime juice, vanilla, and apple juice (AED 25).
