The day's best Dubai events and other things to do in Dubai, including deals at Dubai restaurants, bars and spas, cinema releases and more.
There's simply no excuses for laziness in Dubai. With every need catered for, if you're a glutinous foodie or a glory-chasing fitness fanatic, there is, almost 24/7, something for everybody. Want films? We have the biggest releases and some of the best cinemas - indoor and outdoor - in the world. Or how about architectural marvels? Well, just look up. You're welcome. And while we might have said no laziness, if you're headed to the beach we're willing to make an exception.
To jolt you into life, here's the pick of what's happening around town today.
If you’ve got a day off and want to indulge, and cool down, a new Iced Afternoon Tea should be right up your street. Choose between a chilled lemon, peach, mint, blackcurrant, date or green tea, and nibble on tarts, scones, sandwiches and cake pops. There’s even a chocolate fountain if you really want to push the boat out. Dhs225. Daily, 2pm-6pm.
Cool off with a day at the pool and a two-course set lunch at The Burj Club. Enjoy views of the Burj Khalifa from the rooftop venue and tuck into a range of salads, sandwiches and tapas. Dhs195 (Sun-Thu), Dhs250 (Fri-Sat). Daily 6am-6pm. Until September 30.
Four new desserts are part of a month-long pudding celebration at Social House. Choose from a burrata panna cotta, churros, apple tarte tatin and pecan flan. Who’s calorie counting anyway? From Dhs35. Daily 9am-10.30pm. Until September 30.
DJ JSA takes to the decks to play a mix of hip-hop, R&B and urban tunes at Club Boudoir’s Infamous Sundays. Ladies get free bubbly, and there’s also a buy one get one free offer on drinks until 1am. Free entry. 10pm-3am.
