If you’re in Dubai this weekend, do join us to congratulate our friends from McGettigan’s JLT on their 5th birthday! Yes, it’s really only been five years that we opened McGettigan’s Pub in our hotel, but what a journey it has been! These days, you can find McGettigan’s in several locations in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Ireland, Singapore, New York, and – shortly – also in London.

The next three days, though, are all about the JLT pub, where everything started. McGettigan’s has put together a fabulous lineup of offers and events – check them out here.

During the past weeks, we’ve also received more guest comments via our Golden Book in the hotel lobby. Here are a few, but you can find more on our dedicated Pinterest board here.
