What’s not to love about Cucumber Day?! Scoring drinks at unusually cheap prices in exchange for cucumbers at some of the hottest venues across the capital. Hmm, sounds like our kind of night.

Taking place from Sunday, September 8 to Friday, October 18 you can enjoy gin-based drinks for as low as AED 40 if you carry a cucumber with you at the following venues:
