Saturday 24

Coffee and art: Lyrical Lebanese artist Georges Bassil’s work is now on show at Aspen Cafe, which serves a pretty mean breakfast. Why not get cultural with coffee this morning?
Until August 2. Aspen Cafe, Kempinski Hotel, Mall of the Emirates (04 341 0000).

Learn how to make chocolate: Discover how to create your favourite treats with a complimentary tea or coffee at this Xocolart session.
Dhs300 per person. 7pm-10pm; continues on Wednesday 29, 9am-noon. Organic Foods & Café, The Dubai Mall (050 656 0866).

Go along to a comedy lab session: This stand-up comedy event features The Experimentals Comedy Troupe.

Kick back at a beach club: Ladies get two free drinks before 6pm at this air-conditioned beach party, while DJs Kristian Valdini, Richard Round, Tim Kay, Mark Pickup, Matthew Charles and DJ Serhan provide the music.

Taste delicious sushi: Facing the beach, Sho Cho is the perfect place to eat with friends if you’re seeking a sleek venue for people-watching. We like dining in on Saturdays because there’s no DJ and the vibeis less party-party.
