Things to do in Dubai this week: From Feast Week landing at Fairmont The Palm to Sean Paul live at Cavalli Club
We're in that sticky time period right now. The fun of Halloween is over, but there are still a few weeks before the festivities get into full swing.
But that doesn't mean there isn't plenty going on in Dubai to keep you well feed and fully entertained this November. From the get-go, there's plenty going on in the week commencing Sunday 4.
Fancy dining somewhere new every night with a bargain set menu? Feast Week at The Fairmont has got you. Want to show off your athletic achievements throughout Dubai Fitness Challenge to date? Head down to Muscle Beach. Craving a dose of nostalgia? Grease is the word this week.
Here's the best of happenings in the region to keep your social calendar afloat.
Feast week at Fairmont the Palm, November 9-15
Don’t be that person that always goes to the same old restaurant and orders the same old dish. If you’re slipping into this dangerous territory, here’s a good excuse to venture outside of your culinary comfort zone.
In the appropriately titled Feast Week, Fairmont The Palm is offering set menus that won’t break the bank across its seven indulgent restaurants, with drink offers galore to go alongside it. Seagrill, BA Restaurant and Lounge, Little Miss India, Frevo and Flow Kitchen are serving courses at AED185 per person, while Blowfish and Mashrabiya Lounge are competing with a bargain AED189 for two diners. Visit all seven of the eateries across the week and be in with a chance of winning a two-night staycation, too.

Grease at Cinema Akil, November 7-10

Sean Paul at Cavalli Club, November 4
Nobody can resist the urge to drop to the dancefloor when a Sean Paul classic booms through the speakers, which is why we’re pretty psyched the Jamaican musician is making his way to Dubai this week.
