Thursday is upon us once more, and we’re getting ready for a weekend fuelled by gourmet burgers and Gold Dust…


Sprinkling Gold Dust at Siddharta Lounge

It’s one of the best looking bars in the Marina, and it’s back for the new season.

Gin and jazz at the Four Seasons 

Hendricks, Four Seasons

If you’ve ever wondered how Daisy Buchanan would spend her Friday nights if she lived in Dubai, we reckon we’ve found the answer. The clubby Hendricks Bar at Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach has just unveiled Gin and Jazz Fridays, where you can listen to live performances as you sip on a perfectly mixed drink. Every Friday from 10pm to 1am.

A new American-style brunch


Some Saturdays, we wake up early, work out, and eat right. This will not be one of those Saturdays. We’ll be trying the new Authentically American Saturday brunch at Latitude, featuring smoked sliders, beef brisket, chicken wings, sweet potato fries, ribs… you catch our drift. The brunch costs Dhs350 per person including house beverages. Every Saturday from 1pm to 4pm.
