A new festival is coming to Abu Dhabi for two weekends from Jan 31 and will see the official launch of Casa de Cuba cocktail bar and an appearance from The Scene restaurant’s Simon Rimmer.

Marina Weekender is a fortnight of fun at Yas Marina with celebrity acts and special promotions abound.


Casa de Cuba is a, unsurprisingly, Cuban-themed concept with a cocktail list from Dinos Constantinides, owner of Lost + Found, the 25th best bar in the world.

From Thursday, January 31, some of Constantinides’ creations will be on offer for just AED 25 at certain times, with live music and top DJs ensuring a lively atmosphere.

Meanwhile, celebrity chef Simon Rimmer will be jetting in from the UK to appear in both Dubai at his Pier 7 The Scene location on February 4, before heading through to Abu Dhabi to appear at Marina Weekender the next day.

Rimmer will be showcasing his veggie and vegan menu at Pier 7, and then taking part in nightly meet and greets at The Scene in Yas Marina from February 5-9.
