Your ultimate guide to this weekend in Dubai – February 18 to February 20.

Time to indulge

Cove Beach (2)

As Mercury Retrograde comes to a close, it’s no doubt been a long week. What better way to kickstart the weekend by enjoying the Dubai sunset and night sky in the company of friends enjoying some excellent cuisine? Head to Cove Beach Caesars Palace every Thursday from 7pm to 11pm for their ‘Meat me by the Sea’ deal where guests can enjoy surf & turf (fish and meat), mix grill (only meat) or mix fish & seafood (only fish) for four people for Dhs700.

Gaia’s new terrace

Homegrown Greek-Mediterranean restaurant, Gaia – which is one of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai’s favourite places to go – has opened up its new terrace in perfect timing for the weekend. Expanding into Gate Village, patrons are now able to embrace the atmosphere of DIFC combined with Gaia’s ambience, alongside impeccable cuisine.

Spring is coming

As spring fast approaches, take advantage of Couqley’s spring specials menu. For Dhs139 for a two-course meal or Dhs169 for a three-course meal, enjoy signature dishes including heirloom tomato carpaccio, escargots de bourgogne, white asparagus risotto, rigatoni arrabiata and more. Enjoy the menu daily from 5pm to 8pm.

Reduce, reuse, recycle

Head to Ripe Market this weekend on Friday or Saturday to recycle your old clothes. Ariel Middle East is hosting their ‘POD Swap Shop’ whereby you can exchange preowned items of clothing for preloved items available at the shop. You can also bring an empty bottle of liquid detergent to swap for a pack of Ariel PODS.
