Your ultimate guide to the weekend – May 6 to May 8.

A fine jewellery viewing

Her Highness Sheikha Sana Al Maktoum’s fine jewellery brand is hosting its very first pop-up event in Dubai in collaboration with Christie’s. Having first launched in August 2020, it’s the first time Sana Al Maktoum Fine Jewellery will be available for public viewing.

Her Highness’ debut collection ‘My Treasure’ – which is an ode to her late grandmother, the elder Sheikha Sana – will be exhibited in Christie’s Gallery in DIFC from May 5 to May 12, 2021. The exhibition will give visitors the opportunity to have a first look at the limited edition ‘Treasure’ choker – with the opportunity to own one of only ten pieces in the world.

“I am very pleased to announce our first-ever pop-up with Christie’s Dubai in its DIFC gallery,” Her Highness says. “Christie’s is renowned for selling the finest coloured stones, diamonds, natural pearls and signed jewellery around the world and I am proud to be able to be exhibit here my collection and adding to its legacy.”

Viewings are available on an appointment basis only from 6-11 pm and can be booked by calling the Christie’s office on +971 (0)4 425 5647.

Try a new workout class

Dubai-based fitness studio Barre Effect has added a new addition to its workout class roster – ‘Slide Effect’. Taking their signature 50-minute full-body sculpting class to the next level, the sliders turn up the intensity of any bodyweight move, with a strong focus on core and glute in order to keep strong stabilisation throughout the workout. The sliding discs allow for smooth, fluid, graceful movements, working multiple muscle groups while engaging core stabilisation throughout the range of motion.

There’s also many other classes available including Barre Effect, YBELL Effect, Mini Band Effect and more.

Sunset sessions

Serving the ultimate weekend vibe, Iris welcomes guests to enjoy Sunset Sessions every Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 5-9pm. As an idyllic setting for post-work drinks, an indulgent Friday with family and friends and the perfect relaxing and recuperative Saturday, guests can enjoy a happy hour menu or sunset package featuring a delightful charcuterie board and free-flowing beverages for Dhs150.
