Please support us in the 2017 JLT Restaurant Awards!

We’ve been part of Dubai’s Jumeirah Lakes Towers neighbourhood almost since it started and we’ve seen it grow from a lot of sand to what it is today: One of the most attractive neighbourhoods with the world’s top freezone in the middle.

Recently, and just as a further sign of the progress JLT has made over the past few years, we were pleased to see that JLT now has its own restaurant awards scheme, which lets local residents, office workers, and visitors vote for their favourite restaurant in JLT across multiple categories. Of course, we entered our restaurants and bars and now we’re looking for your support to help us win. Please cast you vote for the Cavendish Restaurant & Terrace, Healey’s Bar & Terrace, the Authors’ Lounge, and the Leisure Deck before 31st October 2017 at http://jltdining.com/restaurant-awards-2017-voting . We’re running in multiple categories:

Oh, and our friends from McGettigan’s JLT are also running in the awards:

Thanks for your support! Keep an eye out for our progress on our social media and on www.jltdining.com .

The Bonnington hosts Sony TV’s Weekend Out

As 2014 is drawing to a close, we’re trawling through our archives and uncovering bits & bobs we haven’t shared during the year. Here’s one of them:

In November 2014, we were pleased to welcome Sony TV’s Gaurav Tandon, who presented an episode of the network’s popular Weekend Out show from our hotel.

In this episode Gaurav talks about Disney on Ice, the latest fashion trends in Dubai, and a number of other topics.
