Never one to miss a trick, McGettigans are launching a new Saturday brunch to mark the new Saturday/Sunday weekend in the UAE.
Their new ‘Hello Saturday Brunch’ will run on Saturday, January 1 and last an impressive five hours.
As well as being New Year’s Day, Saturday, January 1 is also the first official day of the UAE’s new-look weekend. The UAE announced this week that the weekend would now stretch from Friday afternoon until Sunday night. And McGettigans have been quick to adapt to the ‘new normal’ by launching their new brunch.
The new working week also includes much more flexibility.
The new federal schedule includes 8 hour days from Monday to Thursday.
Friday will then be a 4.5-hour working day running from 7.30 am until midday.
The day will then finish before Friday prayers.
The UAE has also announced it will include flexible working hours and the possibility of working from home on Fridays.
And the move to a 2.5 day weekend is being done to ‘boost productivity and improve the work-life balance.’
Which is honestly some of the best news DubaiLAD has heard for a long time!
The new brunch will include three-courses, free-flowing music and plenty of party-starting music. And it will be available at McGettigan’s Souk Madinat, JLT, and Home by McGettigan’s City Walk. Prices start from AED249.
