Drink & DineThe Best of The Best

The Insiders ME top 6 places to celebrate Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee in Dubai

Doesn’t matter what you think of the monarchy, It’s the Queen that matters and we take our hat off to anyone still doing the same job for 70 years, especially since it’s a job you can’t leave. The Queen has seen through 14 prime ministers, 2 world wars and she took the job at just 25… so raise a glass, muffin or cup of tea this weekend at anyone of these brilliant places …


There is no better place to be than the QE2, It’s a black-tie event with a 3-course meal and live band. You can expect a DJ to help finish the night off. Give them a call +971 600 500400
