Earth Hour and a new #guestcommentswednesday

It’s Wednesday, so we’ll bring you the latest #GuestCommentsWednesday , but also some news of upcoming events at the Bonnington in JLT.

As always at the end of March, #EarthHour is happening this coming Saturday from 8.30 – 9.30 p.m. Dubai time. We’ve been part of it since we first opened our doors and, over the years, have made great inroads into lowering our energy consumption and carbon footprint. The Bonnington was one of the first hotels in new Dubai with solar panels on its roof and LED lighting and motion sensor controls were also part of our setup for years.

Still, there’s also a fun side to Earth Hour and, for us, that means the annual candlelight dinner at the Cavendish Restaurant:


Even more traditional than Earth Hour is the Dubai World Cup, the world’s richest horse racing event, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year.

As always, we’ll be telecasting it live in our Healey’s Bar & Terrace and this year, we’re throwing in a free welcome drink:

Hello March! Here’s what’s going on…

March is one of our favorite months in the year, because of our annual St. Patrick’s Day extravaganza around 17th March. Being Irish owned, we’ve celebrated St. Patrick’s Day in style since we first opened our doors and, from our second year onwards, with our friends from McGettigan’s (who, coincidentally, run their own blog – check it out here).

The McGettigan’s blog is also a good source to find out what’s going on this St. Patrick’s Day, as most of our celebrations will take place in #McGettigansJLT . As always, though, we also have plans for a St. Patrick’s Day dinner in our Cavendish Restaurant and we’ll release the details soon on the restaurant’s Google+ and Facebook pages.
