DXB Cucumber Day is returning to the UAE this year. But no longer just reserved to a day-long celebration, this year will see six weeks of drinks deals take place across Dubai and Abu Dhabi, finishing with a free two-day carnival in October.
For those in the know, DXB Cucumber Day has become a big thing in Dubai, with last year’s celebration seeing participating bars across the city accept cucumbers as payment for various gin-based drinks.
This year it’s back with a bit of a twist and from Sunday, September 8 to Friday October 18, you can visit over 50 bars in Dubai and Abu Dhabi and enjoy a gin-based cocktail for Dhs40.
“No cucumber exchange!” we hear you cry. Fear not, you’ll still be able to exchange your fruit for a drink at the DXB Cucumber Carnival taking place at Soho Garden on Thursday October 17 and Friday October 18.
