The Fairmont Dubai is hosting a series of pool parties throughout the summer – the Liquid Nation party will let partygoers cool off in the hotel’s rooftop pool every Saturday from 5-10pm and surface for a selection of slushies and food. Entrance is free for ladies and Dh100 for men, inclusive of a free slushie; call 04 311 8316.

Entry is free from 6-9pm and Dh100 thereafter; call 04 414 0000.
