On The Radar

From breakfast bubbles to shopping inspo and our new Sundowner Secret, here are all the things on Emirates Woman‘s Radar this weekend…


Eating At Karma Kafe

Karma Kafe

Get it before it’s gone: Karma Kafe is closing for June

Newsflash people: It’s getting hot. One of our fave spots, Karma Kafe, will be taking advantage of the quiet spell to treat itself to a little makeover, but to make up for it the restaurant’s offering a two-for-one deal on its tasting menu until the doors close on May 31. Now that’s good karma.

Daily until May 31. Karma Kafe, Souk Al Bahar, Downtown Dubai.


Treating Ourselves To A Little Arm Candy From Aspinal Of London

Aspinal of London

The mini Marylebone tote from Aspinal of London

There is always room for a little retail therapy on our Radar, and this cute Aspinal of London tote in shades of blue has got ‘Friday treat’ written all over it. Our way of celebrating Britain’s springtime showers, without actually getting wet.

Dhs4,500. Aspinal of London, The Galleria and Yas Mall, Abu Dhabi 


Ordering Breakfast With Fizz

Maison Mathis

Maison Mathis has unveiled a new Bubbly Breakfast

Belgian waffles with a side of bubbles? Yes please. At Maison Mathis‘ new Bubbly Breakfast you can wash down your freshly baked pastries and eggs Benedict with a chilled glass of fizz. The best bit? It’s available until 3pm, so a sleep-in is practically encouraged. Breakfast for two including a bottle of bubbles is Dhs300.

Friday and Saturday until 3pm, Maison Mathis, Dusit Thani, Sheikh Zayed Road, from Dhs125 for one person including two glasses of bubbly


Watching Omid Djalili Live On Stage

Djalili will be on stage at Music Hall on Saturday night

Award-winning comic (and SATC 2 star) Omid Djalili will perform at Music Hall in the Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on Saturday night. We’re keen to catch a glimpse of this whip smart stand-up in action.

Music Hall, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, Palm Jumeirah, 7pm, from Dhs195. platinumlist


Taking It Inside At Ripe

Ripe Market

The Ripe Market has moved indoors for summer

It’s a sure sign our al fresco days are numbered when the Ripe Market moves inside for summer. This weekend we’ll be stocking up on all things organic at its new location in the Time Square Centre on Sheikh Zayed Road.

Saturdays, 9am to 2pm, Time Square Centre, Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Quoz



Ssssh… Emirates Woman lets you in on a top after-work deal for the week to come. Take that, Sunday blues!

Happy Hour At Beach Lounge

The Beach Lounge

The Beach Lounge at Jumeirah Beach Hotel

This new opening at Jumeirah Beach Hotel has just sneaked up on us. Head down to Beach Lounge between 5pm and 8pm, when selected drinks are half price. We’re thoroughly enjoying the rustic decking, the fire pits, and the knockout view of the Burj – a sundowner setting to rival Jetty Lounge.

Daily, 5pm to 8pm. Jumeirah Beach Hotel
