Makar, the Scottish-themed bar at Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Waterfront, is having a nod to its heritage with a series of monthly events based around Scotland.
The bespoke evenings will include tasting, blending sessions, and cigar workshops, with the first due to begin on Wednesday, March 20.
David Allan, cluster general manager of Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Waterfront commented: “Our hotel has positioned itself as the friendliest five-star hotel in the city. It is located in Dubai’s exciting new neighbourhood, Business Bay and boasts spectacular views of the iconic Burj Khalifa and newly-opened Dubai Water Canal. Being from Scotland myself it’s great to bring some traditions right into the heart of Downtown Dubai. Matthew (a fellow Scot in charge of Makar) and I look forward to introducing our new monthly events.”
Matthew Wakeford, the Scottish barman in charge of Makar, recently won the Bacardi Legacy competition for the UAE.
Other promotions taking place every Wednesday at Makar include, ‘Double up on world renowned Scottish spirits, all night’ (double measure for single measure price) and happy hour food deals on Scottish offerings.
