Good afternoon all,

Thank you for taking the time to read this thread. My partner and I have just relocated to Dubai, we spent the last week buying sofa, TV's, beds all the usual stuff. Now we are a little settled in we are looking to make some new friends out here. We are located in the Marina area almost opposite the Yacht club and consider ourselfs a normal late 20's couple, who like all the normal sorts of things sports, eating, having fun.

So if your in the area please give me a shout, maybe we can go for a drink or something.

Thanks

Brad

Hi Brad,
Welcome to Dubai. You'll find a lot of threads posted about meet ups, drinks, etc. Keep an eye out and I'm sure someone will come along and arrange something over the weekends.

Sounds pretty much identical to us! We've been here 3 weeks now, spent the last 3 weeks prety much at the mall and shops buying furniture! We are living in the marina too probably right opposite from you now as we look onto the yacht club! So would definitely be up for meeting up

Hi everyone!

Not trying to hijack the thread but thought I'd add in this

My partner and I will be there in 5 weeks time (6th July) - going to spend a few days in a hotel and then move to company provided accommodation for a month whilst we find somewhere to live (Looking in Marina / JLT / Barsha districts.
We'll be looking to make friends as well once we get there. Spent 5 weeks in Dubai in January and only discovered this forum as we were leaving, so didn't really get a chance to meet anyone.
Our usual place to go was Locker Room on a Fri night for Brunch - never made it to Waxys - Went to Flavours though and that was good!

Hope to see some of you soon too!
