Looking to have a cracking Christmas but don’t want to rack up the kind of miles Santa does on his sleigh?

Get down to either Hilton Dubai Jumeirah or Hilton Dubai The Walk (or both) this festive season for plenty of good tidings.

Here’s what’s coming this Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

White Friday Sale on turkey takeaway

Hilton is slashing its turkey takeaway prices for one day only. Normally priced at Dhs650, get your festive bird for just Dhs400 in celebration of White Friday. It comes with all the trimmings and you can even pass it off as your own…
Dhs400 (Nov 26 only), usually Dhs650 (6-8) people. Until Jan 7. Pick up only (04 318 2319).

Christmas-themed Brunches every Friday

Friday Brunches are made even more special and jolly this Christmas with dinners and brunches at Trader Vic’s and Pure Sky Lounge. At the former, there’s a very real island vibe in place, with the Ugly Hawaiian Shirt Brunch putting its own spin on the concept of ugly Christmas jumper nights. Meanwhile, Pure Sky Lounge Festive Supper Clubs boast 180-degree views of the city. Throw in special mixed and handcrafted creations from top mixologists and it’s an evening to savour.
Dec 3, 10, 17. From Dhs450 (house drinks), Trader Vic’s 1pm-4pm. From Dhs450 (house drinks), Pure Sky Lounge Festive Supper Clubs 5.30pm-9pm.

Ugly Sweater Quiz Night at McGettigan’s

Put your thinking caps and ugly Christmas sweaters on because for one night you’re allowed to geek out on all the Christmas trivia. Group yourselves into at least a group of four and hit the books. It’s time to get quizzical.
Dec 15 7.30pm onwards. Hilton Dubai Jumeirah.

Christmas Eve and Christmas Day roast and brunches

It’s a full weekend of Christmas cheer from sun up to sundown with Hilton, with Trader Vic’s, Pure Sky Lounge and McGettigan’s all laying on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day feasts. Trader Vic’s Christmas brunches run from 1pm-4pm (from Dhs450 house drinks) on both days, and come plated up sharing-style with favourites inspired by pan-Asian and Polynesian flavours. Live music from the in-house band, Kntrol Latino, is also being served up throughout.

Pure Sky Lounge Christmas Supper Clubs stretch from 5.30pm to 9pm (Dhs450 house drinks), and are again sharing-style on the luxe outdoor terrace. Sweet views of Ain Dubai and the Marina skyline are thrown in free of charge.

McGettigan’s tasty turkey roast dinner can be gobbled up on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and runs from noon-midnight. Check it out for Dhs149, and get a house drink included. Hungry?

New Year’s Eve parties
