7 things to do in Dubai

Nights Out

The latest entertainment centre to arrive in the city brings some of our favourite things together: gaming, pub fare and live music. That’s not all – there’s also a fully-equipped bowling alley and for the more adventurous, (read: don’t mind getting drenched on a night out) there’s an indoor state-of-the-art surf machine. Even better, there is an excellent happy hour everyday from 5pm-7pm. Be sure to take advantage of the outdoor terrace too before the summer weather kicks in.

Great Grub
Beirut Khanum

The newest Beirut-inspired restaurant to launch in the city, its USP is that it cooks up “the forgotten dishes of Lebanon”. 
When: Daily
Where: Downtown Dubai
Contact: instagram.com/beirutkhanum


If you’ve never tried Emirati food before, this laidback hipster cafe is a good place to start. The menu is packed full of fresh, delicious authentic local food. We dare you to try and not fall in love withthe mouth-watering chebab (which taste,
a little unexpectedly, like a tasty rich homemade Swiss fondue). Also worth a try are the cheese samboosa and the delicious balaleet dish.
When: Daily
Where: BoxPark
Contact: logma.ae

If you know your gyoza from your donburi, this is the restaurant for you. The recently opened Spheerz in Dubai’s Jumeirah district serves up delicious authentic and uncommon Japanese flavours.
When: Daily
Where: Port Rashid
Contact: spheerz.ae
