Please click on this link to see a slide show about our group and its activities.

The Marina, JBR and JLT area is full of lonely people. The Marina and JBR buzz with activity every night while ironically many residents are holed up in their apartments fiddling thumbs. In some ways it is like being back home in London where we don't really know many of our neighbours! Time to change this and create a cozy group of local residents who can get together from time to time and socialise with each other without having to drive. Would it not be nice to know others in the area and be able to pop over over to a residents home for a drink or to a local to watch the rugby.

-------------------------Important note------------------------------------------------------

This is a Dubai group of 'The Expats Club' which is a global network of online socialising and networking groups. The Expats Club operates in 20 cities around the world, with over 50,000 members, through a variety of platforms including, Facebook and our own platform at and at

We tend to have a number of groups in every city to meet the needs of many niches in the community. A number of times we combine group events so that everyone can meet each other. I hope you enjoy your membership of our groups. Please feel free to write to me at or text/whatsapp/call me on +971552829430 or +447715705005 with any comments, compliants, thoughts or suggestions. I look forward to meeting you at one of our events soon. 

Please be aware that most people come to meetups and events alone. We make it our business to welcome you at the door, introduce you to others in the group and ensure that you are comfortable quickly. We are also at hand to assist if you have any issues or would like to be introduced to anyone specifically. We only ask that you are well behaved in our online and offline interactions with other members. 

We also do group holidays a few times a year, when we invite members from all our groups around the world to join us at one holiday destination. I very much hope you will join in one of those trips as you meet people from around the world (including locals who are part of our local groups) and vastly improve your enjoyment of the holiday.  It is an unsurpassed experience and always a grand party!

My thanks and best regards

Dan Raj (Founder)
