Dubai restaurants have begun offering discounts to customers who have been inoculated against coronavirus, amid a vaccination drive as the emirate seeks to fight the pandemic.
Alpine restaurant Publique, British restaurant Reform Social and Grill and Ultra Brasserie, all of which are run by Gates Hospitality, announced on Sunday an offer that gives residents 10 per cent off their bill if they have already received the first dose of a vaccine and 20 per cent off after having both shots. Bistro des Arts, also under Gates Hospitality, announced the same deal on Monday.
With the slogan, “Spread love, not 'Rona”, the offer has been shared on the restaurants' Instagram pages, provoking a range of reactions from residents and social media users.
Just a few hours after posting about the discounts, the promotions have created a buzz online.
Around 2.5 million residents of about 10 million have already been vaccinated, the second highest rate globally after Israel.
Diners must show proof of vaccination, such as a medical certificate, to get the discount.
