4 Media Rotana Hotel:Nelson’s is probably the best-known bar at this hotel, drawing in Brits who want a taste of home, only fancier: it serves upmarket bar food and an impressive selection of drinks while screening the English Premier League Football. A live DJ in the evenings and a Friday brunch for Dhs85 also pull in the crowds. Prego’s and Channels are other good dining options here. 04 435 0000 Five minutes walking distance from the station
5 The Palladium: This impressive arena seats 3,000 people and will soon be one of the biggest venues in Dubai for theatre productions, concerts and large-scale conferences. It’s not totally up-and-running yet, but it did host Akon’s concert in May (well, he’s not going to complain about playing somewhere half-finished – he’s used to a prison cell, after all). www.thepalladiumdubai.com Seven minutes walking distance from the station
