6 things to do in Dubai this week



Les Miserables
Les Mis is so popular that it has been seen by over 70 million people across the world. Add to that figure by catching the popular musical for its Dubai debut at Dubai Opera. It tells the story of a recently released prisoner on parole as he reinvents himself. Expect to hear classics like “I Dreamed A Dream” and “On My Own”.
When: Until December 2
Where: Dubai Opera,

Burger and Lobster Bar Menu
The hipster lobster joint has just rolled out a new bar menu full of mixed drinks that will pair well with your burger or lobster of choice. There are plenty of mini bar bites prices from AED15-AED45 to enjoy washed down with a mixed drink for AED50.
When: Mon-Sun 12pm-12am (bar 2am)
Where: Burj Daman Building, DIFC

Thursday Night Blues Brunch
Step back in time at the American-themed Firebird Diner. Thursday night brings a live swing band, plenty of Uncle Sam’s favourite dishes and free-flowing drinks. It’s AED275 for mocktails and joices or AED450 for bubbles and mixed drinks.
When: Thursdays, 7pm-1am
Where: Firebird Diner, Four Seasons Hotel, DIFC, +971 4 506 0100

Quintino at BOA
Dutch DJ and producer Quintino found fame after being spotted by Nicky Romero at 18. Although still an up-and-comer, he’s already collaborated with household names such as Tiesto and Afrojack. Catch him at BOA this Thursday as he continues his seemingly non-stop gigging around the world.
When: Thursday November 17
Where: BOA, W Dubai, +971 501 2039, [email protected]

Ravinder Dutt
The artist’s new exhibition is called “Cartographer of a Magic Land” and charts both the physical growth of Dubai but also the visions and philosophy that have gone into the making of the city. Dutt assumes a character from the Arabian Nights to visit landmarks in the history of Dubai.
When: Until November 18
Where: DUCTAC,

Cinema – Hacksaw Ridge (18)
Very much on the same lines as hardship-o-rama Unbroken, only with the faith component further to the fore, Hacksaw Ridge charts the true story of WW2 US Army medic Desmond T Doss (Andrew Garfield), who refuses to kill anyone on the battlefield or even carry a gun. The Mel Gibson-directed film zooms in on the ethical wrestling, the bullying and, eventually, the irrepressible courage that sees him serve with distinction. Emotionally manipulative but still powerful.
In cinemas from November 10
