The legendary Monte Carlo brand will give ladies the opportunity to mingle every Wednesday with free drinks from 8pm to 11.30pm and a three-course set menu for Dhs 199, inclusive of beverages. After a delicious appetiser, diners can choose a signature main with options including grilled baby chicken marinated in garlic and lemon or grilled fillet of sea bass with Mediterranean vegetables, followed by a dessert. Tables are then swept away for ladies to get on the dance floor and party the night away. Sass Café, Al Fattan Currency House, DIFC. Call 04-3527722.


Wednesday night special at Thai Kitchen

Thai chefs prepare authentic dishes at this award-winning restaurant nestled in Park Hyatt.

Diners are served dishes such as papaya salad, pomelo salad, pad Thai, steamed sea bass, homemade coconut ice cream, made using the freshest ingredients. Priced at Dhs 250 (inclusive of soft beverages, assorted juices and virgin mojitos) and Dhs 325 (inclusive of grapes, mixed beverages and Thai hops).
