While many of us may be dreaming of upcoming summer breaks in far off moderately cooler destinations, it’s important not to slack off and to make the most of what the UAE still has to offer this weekend – there are some gems (literally) on offer…

Ray’s Bar on level 62 of the Jumeirah Etihad Towers is a fine place to kick off the weekend. With panoramic views of the capital city, and an ultra high-gloss interior, why not sidle in and join us for a sundowner and the ‘deep and techy’ sessions with DJ Paul Hamilton. Bring on the weekend!



Shoreditch Muse will be hosting another pop-up store at Capital D’s Shoreditch Muse. The theme is ‘Summertime’, so for those of you who are still thinking about the holidays this is a perfect opportunity to pick up some holiday-ready fashion including  beachwear, sunglasses, kaftans, jewellery and accessories from selected boutiques and designers across the region. But be prepared to fight it out with an EW staffer for a hot bargain – we don’t mess around.

The store will be open 4-7pm on Friday and 2-7pm on Saturday. For more information, email contact@thepressroomhq.com or call (04) 4315339



Like us, Jones The Grocer is not immune to the FIFA World Cup Fever. In celebration of one of the world’s most exciting sporting competitions they have put together a dedicated menu that captures the passion and flair of the host country Brazil. We’re too ladylike to drool here at EW HQ, but we’re certainly salivating at the thought of BBQ Chicken and Hot Dogs. Yum.
