28 May, 2024

It’s time to show a bit of appreciation for dear old Dad.


If you’re planning a perfect day of bonding well in advance, then a big well done to you. But if Father’s Day in Dubai totally slipped your mind and now you’re frantically searching for something to do while scribbling your name on a card, don’t worry, we’ve got you.


The day itself is celebrated on different dates around the world, so you can make the most of a selection of events spanning from June 16-21. UK and US Father’s Day falls first on Sunday, June 16, followed by UAE Father’s Day on June 21.


From a hearty roast dinner to watching the footie at a fan zone, here are all the best things to do for Father’s Day in Dubai.


Sunday roast at The Nine

You can’t go wrong with a Sunday roast. Get the whole family over to The Nine at the Sofitel on June 16 for an afternoon of traditional dishes and flavours. Chow down on some impressive Yorkshire puddings, and choose between succulent roast beef, chicken or lamb.

The special father’s event also includes two hours of free-flowing afternoon house beverages, so the meal should go down a treat.

From Dhs95 per person, Dhs199 (house). Sun June 16, 12.30pm-4pm. The Nine, Sofitel Dubai the Obelisk, Wafi, (04 281 4111).


Have a meal at Risen

Running at all Risen cafés across Dubai, dads will be treated to a complimentary main course when having a meal with their family. Try the Palm Jumeirah branch for the best views, as you all tuck into a classic burger or a dainty pastry.

From June 16-18, 7am-close, Risen, various locations,


Take in an exhibition on fatherhood

If you want something a little bit different, mark this one in your diary for June 13. Running for one month, the Ouisam works are titled A Short Story About Father Hood, and will transform the lobby at the Rixos Premium hotel into a gallery.

Encouraging you to get reflective, the artworks are designed to showcase paternal guidance and get you thinking about your own experience, so if you’re in the mood for a DMC, this is the place to go.

Free. June 13 – July 13. Rixos Premium Dubai, Jumeirah Beach Residence, (04 520 0000).


Dine for less at Sante Ria

Another dining deal, book a table at Sante Ria on Sunday June 16 and bring dad along for a complimentary main and dessert while eating with the family. Including two courses, why not treat him to the rib eye steak, followed up by the restaurant’s iconic orale churros.

June 16, 6pm-late. The First Collection, JVC, (04 275 6621).


Bag a gift at the Dulsco Environment Father’s Day sale

Is your dad looking for something new to go in his man cave, or a one-off-piece for the office? Get browsing on the Father’s Day sale at Dulsco Environment’s ‘New, Old and Reloved’ store, where the shop will have a 15 per cent discount on all items purchased between June 1-June 30. Browse the cool and wacky furniture, from chairs made out of barrels to a chess set crafted from engine parts, and pick up a unique Father’s Day gift for your old man.

Catch up over a pint of hops at Enas

Head down to Palm Jumeirah with dad and the rest of your brood on June 16, and try out a table at Enas restaurant. For one day only, dads will be entitled to a complimentary pint of hops, as long as they are joined by their loved ones.

Visit a fanzone to watch the Euros

There’s a pretty high chance that your dad won’t even want to head out for Father’s Day. Instead he’ll have his eyes glued to the screen watching the Euros, so why not join him? There are a selection of incredible fan zones across Dubai gearing up for the tournament, so check out all of the best places to watch and take your dad out for a day of bonding over the great game.


Feast on unlimited wings at The Blacksmith

Have a round at Topgolf

Fun for all the family, take your dad for a few swings in one of the new air-conditioned golf bays. Let him practice his best shot while the little ones burn off some steam in the arcade, before all sitting down for some all-American snacks — think burgers, fries, the lot.

Now ready for the summer season, the attraction at Emirates Golf Club has shaded units and chilled bays to make sure it’s an enjoyable outing.
