You’ve probably heard that Cuban cigars are world famous, but have you ever seen a Cuban cigar being rolled live in front of you? The art of cigar rolling is something worth experiencing and now you don’t even have to fly to Cuba anymore to grab a freshly rolled Cuban cigar.
On Tuesday, 31st May 2016, our Healey’s Bar (already famous for great shisha in JLT) will host a Cuban cigar rolling demonstration with master cigar roller Mrs. Virginia.
Come to Healey’s between 8 p.m. – 11 p.m., grab a cocktail, beer, or a fine glass of wine, and see Cuban cigars being rolled live & up close. Even better, purchase any cigar from Healey’s extensive cigar selection and you’ll get a freshly rolled Cuban from Mrs. Virginia as a gift. Healey’s Bar Manager, Venkadesh, will be on hand and he just happens to be an expert in pairing fine cigars with great beverages, so ask him for a tip if you don’t know what to order.
Cuban cigars might also be popping up on our Snapchat that night, so connect with us now via https://www.snapchat.com/add/bonningtontower or simply by username #bonningtontower

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.
