Visit a breakfast hotspot

Society interior

Opt for breakfast at one of Dubai’s most beloved restaurants, Society. The restaurant recently reopened its doors after a major revamp. Featuring a striking fresh interior and mouthwatering new dishes on the menu to complement the classics, Society is back and ready to serve. Located on the busy Beach Road, Jumeirah 1, the bustling all-day dining concept was founded by Sheikha Al Mheiri in 2015 and was built on the foundations of culture and adversity similar to that of her home city, Dubai. Breakfast staples, such as the flakey croissant that holds the delicious Eggs Benedict, can be enjoyed for Dhs62 and the creamy Khachapuri is Dhs65.

A beachside meal

Lucky Fish

Located on the pristine shores of the Palm Jumeirah, Lucky Fish invites guests to cool off and beat the heat this summer at their newly enclosed expansive and breezy indoor terrace. The restaurant offers a wide array of dishes that encapsulate the recipes and flavours found across the Mediterranean, with inspiration being drawn from Italian, French and Spanish cuisines. It’s the ideal spot for a late lunch this long weekend.

Summer specials at Scalini


Offering a sensory experience unlike any other, Scalini has now launched an exclusive set of summer specials inspired by the myths of a small archipelago of islands on the Amalfi Coast. With invigorating flavours, Scalini provides a light Italian menu in a relaxed ambience, with courses ranging from fresh Burrata to seafood specials and an array of desserts to end the meal on a sweet note. Available from 12pm daily, with specials from Dhs195, La Sirenuse at Scalini is definitely a must-try this season. Located near Four Seasons Hotel Jumeirah, it’s open from 12pm to 12am daily.

A luxury spa treatment

Treat yourself to a luxury spa treatment this long weekend at the Six Senses Spa, located at the Renaissance Downtown. From luxurious massages to 24 karat gold facials, there’s something for everyone.

For those looking for a casual dinner out, head to Jailbird’s first dine-in location in Jumeirah – 17C Street, Al Wasl. The homegrown concept is the home of Chicken Melt Sando. A favourite amongst Dubai residents, the chicken joint is reimagining classic fried chicken.

Start your Saturday right

Bla Bla Dubai (1)

Close the long weekend by starting your Saturday on the right note at BlaBla Beach Club. While the venue normally hosts their BreakFIT Club on a Sunday, you’ll have the chance to experience it yourself this long weekend on August 14. The event is being hosted in partnership with beauty brand Rituals, where attendees will receive a goodie bag after the session. The BreakFIT Club includes a fusion of aqua yoga and fitness movements in the water, which encourages balance and core movements. Water dumbbells are provided to promote greater muscle tone and stability in the body – a great full-body workout for hot summer mornings and ideal for all fitness levels. A 45-minute pool workout and breakfast including avocado on toast, pancakes and eggs your way is just Dhs140.
