It’s an unwritten truth that the most difficult part of December can be getting your festive itinerary sorted. Let’s be honest, the back-and-forth of a WhatsApp chat group dedicated to organising it can often take half the year itself. Our advice? Take the stress out of the situation and let somebody else do the hard work for you. Case in point, La Ville Hotel & Suites.
Let’s be clear, these guys haven’t just got your Christmas dinner sorted. This City Walk favourite has something for every day in December. Every. Day.
First things first, The Grapeskin Fest at Grapeskin Courtyard on December 20. Here you’ve got the perfect spot to catch up with friends over a selection of more than 50 festive drinks and a food menu that includes a raclette station, cheese and charcuterie. But while the fest is only set for the 20th, you’ll find drinks of the mulled variety there for the entire month.
Now, we don’t know about you, but for us December is a time to eat (and eat well). La Ville Hotel & Suites has you covered, here. On December 24, choose from a three-course festive menu starring Australian Black Angus at Graze Gastro Grill and Bar. If you’d rather something a little more traditional, then head to Chival on either Christmas Eve or Day to get your festive roast fix.
But if you’re talking about tradition, well, it’s no secret that some people will want to host their Christmas party at home. But hosting ain’t easy, so de-stress the situation by opting for a Takeaway Roast. Featuring a roast turkey and co-starring the classics including beef, cranberry sauce, honey glazed carrots, chestnuts and, yes, Brussels sprouts (see, it really is Christmas). Our advice is to order it all from La Ville Hotel & Suites then pass it off as your own work.
Finally, the biggest day of the year is sorted courtesy of LookUp Rooftop Bar. Take your place overlooking Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, but neatly avoid the crowds, and await the finest firework display in the Middle East. We can’t honestly think of anywhere else we’d rather be.
