You’ll get a Bingo card and markers upon entry, and there will be tie-breaker rounds with lip sync and chopstick (we’re not sure, either, but it sounds intriguing) battles. So, if you’ve had a long week and are bored of stuffy bars and glamorous nightclubs, head down for – what’s set to be – a fun evening. INFO: Free entry, 9pm-11.30pm, Marina Byblos Hotel, Dubai Marina, 050 699 3191, societe.ae
