Because celebrating the festive season for just five days is passé.

The sprawling Els Club in Dubai Sports City is going ALL out with fun-filled events by having not five, not 10...but a FULL month of celebrations starting from December 2.

From theme nights to a Christmas market, National Day celebrations to an NYE name it, it's all there!

It's the perfect opportunity for the entire family to come together and be a part of a series of delightful events and experiences all throughout the month of December.

Everything is going down at their signature restaurants- 261 and Big Easy Bar & Grill, and at the Atrium of the Els Club

Whether you're looking for a quiet night with family or a lively night out with friends there are tons of options that will please everyone...and especially your pocket!

Here's a rundown of all the events:

1. National Day

All UAE Nationals get a 60% discount on all food and beverages on December 2, all day throughout the Els Club.

2. Turkey Take Away

This one's a STEAL. You get to order an 8kg turkey with all the trimmings and pick it up from 261 on the requested day and time. It's available to order from December 3 to December 26 for AED695 per package.

3. Christmas Tree Lighting

Think live carol singers, complimentary mulled drink, mince pies and a visit from Santa. It's happening on Thursday, December 13 at the Atrium from 7pm to 9pm and is totally FREE.
