… and it’s a wrap! Another Paddy’s Day weekend at the Bonnington has been and gone. This year, we had old favourites, like our Irish dancers in the lobby, but also exciting new events, like the biggest Irish party Dubai has ever seen, which was organized by our friends from McGettigan’s and which took place in Media City.

Of course, we’ve had the Irish flag up again on our tower, too:

The day itself sped past like a whirlwind with events taking place in the hotel, in McGettigan’s JLT, and in Media City. Although it was very busy, we had time to pop across the road and party a little, too:

If you didn’t manage to join us this year, mark your diaries for next year’s celebrations!

Ramadan Preparations in Dubai

JLT-time-2016-May

Muslims in Dubai and around the world are preparing for Ramadan, which is scheduled to start around 6th June this year. We’re also getting ready – our iftar menus have been printed and we’re planning this year’s Ramadan decorations.

Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar and the month of fasting for Muslims. Fasting is one of the five pillars of Islam; the others are confession of faith, five daily prayers, Zakah (almsgiving) and Hajj (pilgrimage to Makkah).

The day of fasting begins with an early morning meal before dawn and ends at sunset. The evening activities include the traditional breaking of the fast usually with dates and water, the sunset prayer followed by dinner (IFTAR). Muslims then usually go to the mosque for congregational prayers in which at least one-thirtieth of the Qur’an is recited. The congregation would have listened to the recitation of the complete Qur’an by the end of the month.

Emarati hospitality and traditions are also very evident during this month as Iftars are hosted across Dubai and residents of different nationalities come together to share the spirit of Ramadan.

If you’d like to find out more about Ramadan in Dubai, you can do so here.

Our Cavendish Restaurant will host a daily iftar buffet, which features many Arabic delicacies, traditional sweets, and Iftar beverages. You’ll also be able to enjoy hot and cold mezze, and meat and vegetarian grills. A live Oud player will accompany your iftar with traditional music.
