JA Bateau Dubai
If you’re after dinner with a difference in 2018, it’s time to try out JA Bateaux Dubai. The long-standing dinner cruise has undergone a revamp, and now has a brand-new menu, as well as a new boarding site.
The boat now sets off from Al Seef, and cruises up the Creek – offering up views of Dubai’s historic trading routes, the historical Bastakiya district and Sheikh Saad’s House – the birthplace of Sheikh Rashid.
With both and indoor and outdoor seating area, views are equally great in each area. Packages are Dhs415 for soft drinks and Dhs520 for house beverages, and include a four-course meal with dishes including beef tenderloin and avocado and prawns.

The long-awaited second Dubai branch of New York burger joint Black Tap is now open, at the Rixos Premium Dubai, JBR.
For burgers, freakshakes and more, you can’t get much better than a trip here. The first Dubai outpost of the Stateside burger eatery opened at Jumeirah Al Naseem earlier this year and was a massive hit, and we’re expecting to hear similarly great things about this newest location.
