Christmas Week Starts Here. Drinks + Chat Alfresco @ The Belgian Cafe

  • Dec 20, 2013 · 8:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

+ Boogie 2 Follow for those who wish to party on till the small hours. Wednesday night starts the week with one kind of Christmas Spirit, we are sure this night will add another, washed down with a few excellent Belgian beers ... which should have your dancing feet moving by the end of the evening. 

UPDATE: We now have a reserved area on the upper deck. This is reserved exclusively for us... Big thank you to Eric Beurel the manager for accommodating us at short notice on a busy weekend night. 

Take the lift or stairs and you will find us between the 'restaurant' zone and the bar... 

As a smaller, informal gathering it is a great opportunity to bring along a friend or 3 and introduce them to our group. But please add them to your RSVP if you do. 

There is also an excellent range of cocktails... so its a great place to invite the ladies.

This event will be hosted by Laurence [masked]) and Rima. Please use text or watsapp on the night if you cant find us.

We will move on from the bar to a dance floor to be confirmed... (I am paying a visit to a nearby place that has been refurbished on Wednesday evening for a reconnaissance mission... )

The Belgian Cafe & Bar at the Millennium in Tecom has three levels and we will be on the upper deck. They serve excellent food and at a reasonable price for those who wish to eat and carry a tremendous selection of beers, particularly Belgian! 

In this unique Hotel Café, Dubai provides the warm and cozy atmosphere of an authentic European Café, featuring an Art Nouveau-inspired interior for an elegant and sophisticated place to meet. With an atmosphere that is both relaxed and ambient, the restaurant is ideal for a quick lunch or a relaxing dinner from the Belgian inspired menu.

The Belgian Beer Cafe Dubai is particularly popular for its after work drinks and snacks from the Beer Food menu, and is ideal for people who work locally, as well as residents."

If you are a new member then please try and arrive at 7.30 so that we can get to know you before introducing you to the group.

The dress code is casual but please avoid shorts or sandals if you intend to follow on to dancing. Santa hats are optional :o)

As many are away this is an opportunity for those of us who are staying in Dubai over the festive season to meet up, share in the seasons spirit and support each other.

SEE YOU THERE AND DON'T FORGET

    Well what a blast that was... The Belgian Beers went down well and clearly did the trick for those with the time and energy to hit the dance floor... Super to see Christine as well, glad you are on the mend. Good to meet a few new faces and tread on a few new toes.... and as always the old faces too.

    Speaking of which, this was perhaps a meet up "first" where a member was accompanied by his grand son ? i think i got that right Tim? :o) The new night club one thinks is likely to be much used by this group... finally found a DJ who knows how to keep a dance floor 'Buzzing" ... and a great mixture of people in there too. All in all a great start to the festive season... bring on Christmas Eve...

    Belgians have two Santa Claus figures known as St. Nicholas and Père Noel. St Nicholas visits those people who speak the Walloon language twice; on December 4th, and on the 6th.
    His double Père Noel, visits people who speak French only on 6th December along with his pervy friend Père Fouettard to see if Children been good or bad.

    I think after a glass of beer, we need to straighten these Belgians out on Friday . . . . .

    2 · December 17, 2013

    • Peter

      Christian - what's your opinion on Le Père Fouettard, "a sinister figure dressed in black who accompanies Saint Nicolas and spanks those who have behaved badly" ?

    So I hear that the 'assistant organisers' are organising this event in absence of our dear leader? Isn't this like giving the keys to your lovely sports car to your 15 year old son whilst you're away with advice 'make sure its in same condition when I get back?'

    2 · December 17, 2013

    • Rima

      can i have the sports car?

      1 · December 17, 2013

    • laurence

      hmmmmm if people want to start talking photographs, i have one or two here which, shall we say, are quite interesting! like i said mr christian... be afraid, be very afraid.
