With the Holy Month of Ramadan underway, all of the trendiest hot spots in Dubai are putting their best foot forward to draw in the crowds for Iftar and Suhoor. One of the most luxurious Iftar spreads in all of Dubai is at The Majlis at the Dubai World Trade Centre, which began this week. Of course dining isn’t the only Ramadan-themed activity going on right now. The Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding held its annual Ramadan workshop earlier this week.

Additionally, popular nightclub Mahiki hosted its season-ending party this week.

As the Holy Month of Ramadan began this week, the Dubai World Trade Centre kicked off the annual Majlis. Iftar is served from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and Suhoor is served from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. (4 a.m. on weekends) each day throughout Ramadan. The World Trade Centre’s Majlis is arguably the most fabulous one in all of Dubai. Jaguar is the official car of The Majlis at the Dubai World Trade Centre this year.

All of the dishes served are designed and prepared by DWTC’s award-winning chefs.
