It’s that time of the year when you smell pumpkins everywhere; the roads are deserted, hulking and scary winds blowing through the dark windows. Frankenstein, zombies, witches and skeletons have transpired the land. Children are peeking through the windows and holding their breath to the horrific blowing noises. It gets spooky as soon as it’s the sun sets down and dark shadows take over it.
It’s Halloween time, the most celebrated festivals of North America. The houses are decorated with bones, spider webs, skeletons and so much more. After celebrating it for past so many years in Canada, we are now in Dubai.
While doing my research online, I came through Halloween celebrations at the Rooftop lounge at Royal Ascot Hotel in Bur Dubai. Just like my children, I was desperate to celebrate one of favourite festival Halloween in Dubai. We thought of checking it out last night, I was amazed to see the setup done by Rooftop Lounge, magnificent work done by the team. It was a bit spooky and gave us that feel of Halloween in Dubai.
I personally loved Rooftop lounge, quite a spacious space….perfect to chill out with friends while having shisha, drinks and some sumptuous delicacies freshly prepared by the chefs on site. The huge TV screen are so welcoming and is perfect to watch Soccer and cricket matches, obviously it’s more fun to cheer the team with the larger crowd. Not to forget the soulful music by the DJ…..it’s a big party every night at Rooftop Lounge.
Rooftop has launched its 5th successful season recently and is very creative in entertaining their new and repetitive guests. Mr. Suneel Bhambani, the Owner of Rooftop lounge meets each and every guest with a smile and makes sure to get a feedback from them to ensure guest service and quality. The ambience, the feel, the décor and the space and the hospitality at Rooftop lounge, sets it apart from the others.
Each night at Rooftop is a theme night; like Monday at Rooftop is now Manday, Tuesday is Ladies night, Wednesday is Karaoke and Thursday is a Bollywood Quiz night…..there are games available for the guests to participate. It is a perfect venue for corporates for their team building exercise. We loved our time at the Rooftop lounge and are looking forward to visit them again soon.
