There is a very celebratory atmosphere in the air this weekend. With sports fans descending on the city for the Emirates Dubai Rugby Sevens and everyone displaying their flags for National Day, it’s almost impossible not to want to paint the town red (white, green and black)!…



We all know that if you really want a great night out, you’ve got to do it with the girls. We’ll be riffling through our closets to find our glitziest partywear before heading down to Thursday’s ladies’ night at Movida where we’ll be dancing the night away with great friends and good music in one of Dubai’s chicest clubs. Complimentary drinks are served exclusively to the ladies between 11pm and 1am.

For reservations, email bookings@movida-dubai.com or call (04) 3866844.


Story rooftop lounge Dubai

We always get excited when we discover a new post-work, weekend wind-down venue close to the office, so we were thrilled when Story Rooftop Lounge opened in Media City a little while ago. Story is filling a much-needed gap in the city’s nightlife scene and promises to be a hip, creative middle ground between the casual beach bars and high-bling clubs. With the addition of A Different Story Brunch, specialising in contemporary Peruvian fare and fantastic views, they’ve got us as regulars.

Brunch runs from 1pm – 4pm on Fridays. Dhs299 per person. For reservations, call (04) 3659911.




Earlier this week we had the pleasure of attending the opening of the first UAE stand-alone boutique of luxury French fragrance brand M. Micallef. This niche brand is still run by its husband and wife founders and a small team of employees, giving it a warm, intimate atmosphere. Apart from the sublime fragrances, the best part about the boutique, located in Grosvenor House, is its array of hand-customised bottles, each one an artwork in it’s own right. With dedicated artists in-store to customise your purchases, we’re stocking up on unique gifts for the festive period. The boutique is on the lobby level of Grosvenor House Tower 1. For more
