These 8 Places Should Be A Part Of Your Halloween Plans This Year
There's spooktacular stuff going on
With less than a week to Halloween, we thought it would be nice of us to share some stuff you can do in Dubai.
Here are eight places that are doing various things ranging from a party to brunch and everything in between.
1. Fume, Pier 7
Pumpkin takes centre stage in the Halloween-special menu. Start with a spooky pumpkin and spinach salad before moving to a creepy ricotta and pumpkin ravioli with roasted shrimps. Remember the meal isn’t complete until you’ve had the devilish spiced spookcakes served by the scary-looking staff. Costumes are encouraged as the best dressed adult will take home dining vouchers.

2. Coya, Four Seasons Resort Jumeirah Beach Road
Your night at the Peruvian hotspot will be quite a spellbinding dining experience. We’re talking electric chairs, elaborately dressed staff and an element of mystery. The party will carry on until the early hours of the morning courtesy the DJs and live bands.
