The Mum Club December Events

I was very excited to launch The Mum Club with my friend and colleague Simone back in December, as a club and support group for Mums in Dubai. The idea started one Friday afternoon back in November (as with most of our ideas, fuelled by good coffee) and as our discussions grew, we quickly realised this was what Dubai was missing. An idea grew into a plan – and then we launched The Mum Club with three events in December.

Our December events were a Mum’s Night Out at Sicilia in Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel, a Christmas Party and Playdate at Caboodle City Walk, and a Coffee Morning at Raw Cafe in Umm Suqeim.

1. Mum’s Night Out

Date: Tuesday 8th December
Venue: Sicilia at Ibn Battuta Gate Hotel
What happened: After ordering drinks and pulling crackers on the table, we tucked into a vast antipasti spread, delicious Italian mains, and melt-in-the desserts, washed down with fantastic Italian wines, soft drinks, and water on the table. We all agreed that we would visit Sicilia again for a date night soon. The service was also impeccable! A few ladies came with friends and others on their own, but everyone loved the friendly, warm feeling of our night out – and we are all excited about doing it  all over again in January!

Date: Tuesday 15th December
Venue: Raw Cafe, Umm Suqeim
What happened: A very casual, relaxed coffee morning at Raw Cafe, drinking amazing coffee, nibbling on the delicious breakfast spread, and enjoying help from nurses at Babies & Beyond with little ones. It was a fun morning – and we have fallen head over heels for the cool, convenient venue (and strong cups of Raw Coffee, of course!)
Visit: Raw Cafe, The Emirates Academy of Hospitality Management, Umm Suqeim
