Dubai, UAE – Whether you are passionate about food, culture or entertainment there will be something for everyone at the new monthly White Nights being launched at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC), one of Dubai’s most sought-after business and lifestyle destinations.

On the first Sunday of each month, starting Sunday 3rd March 2019, Gate Village – the home of DIFC’s fine dining and avant-garde art galleries – will be alive with exclusive dining offers, live entertainment and late-night access to the many galleries that call the Centre home.

Based on a concept that has proved hugely popular at cities across Europe, White Nights encourage diners to wear white so they can take advantage of the exclusive offers and menus available throughout the evening.

Exclusive offers are available from 7:30pm - 9:30pm each White Night.

White Nights continue on the first Sunday of each month until May then resume again in September. The inaugural White Night at DIFC will feature exclusive offerings from 11 participating restaurants, which are:
