Taste Buds

I wasn't able to make this one but The Toffee One did and this is what she had to say ...

 

 

"Towards the end of a very busy December, a few of us decided to take a break from the rush and treat ourselves to a well-earned girls night out.  Although many couldn’t attend due to the time of year, there were still a fair few of us: The Toffee One, The Sparkly One, The Musical One, The Newbie, The Youngster and The Pickled Ones.

 

 

Now most of us are no spring chickens anymore so a nightclub or loud smoky environment is just not our thing.  We were looking for something a little bit classy, quiet and relaxing.  We certainly found this at Vantage.

 

 

This lovely wine bar can be found on the 5th floor of the hotel and has a large outside seating area with fabulous views over the city.  We chose to start our evening out here despite it being a little chilly. The menu has a varied selection of wines starting at AED 40 a glass.  Sadly there was no fizz at a sensible price but that meant that everyone could choose what she wanted.  It should also be mentioned that as well as the drinks, the staff served an unlimited and very varied selection of nibbles to us all evening so good value indeed!

 

 

We chose to move indoors later on as it was getting a little too cold for us who have been here for a long time and ended up staying for far more than the planned 2-3 glasses!

 

 

Suffice to say it was a lovely group of ladies and a great time was had by all.  So much so that we decided to make it a regular occurrence although being realistic, we have decided to make it a quarterly event.  It has fallen to The Toffee One to arrange these get-togethers and she has a feeling that it will grow and grow.  Roll on March – now where shall we go?...."
