Things to do this week in Dubai: Hollaphonic, Trader Vic's and more
A British DJ duo based right here, Greg Stainer and Olly Wood have made names for themselves on the music scene in Dubai over the years. And after spending the past few months travelling the world and performing all over (alright for some, eh?) they’re making a welcome comeback to the city with a string of gigs at this laid-back lounge, starting this week. As well as three hours of cool electro-pop beats pumped into your ears, you can also drink up the delectable signature beverages and soak up the marina views.
When: February 7
Where: Siddharta Lounge by Buddha-Bar, Grosvenor House
Grape Festival Brunch
Sure there will be plenty of food, but this is really for the grape enthusiasts out there (we see you). Grab a glass and work your way through the hefty selection for AED385.
When: Friday 1-4pm
Where: Boca, Gate Village DIFC
There’s a new rooftop to kickback at while looking at the stars and nibbling on finger food. Delightful.
When: Open now
Where: Stella Di Mare Hotel, Dubai Marina
A smoked chicken bowl, veggie ramen, wagyu and eggplant bites and tofu and pumpkin skewers all feature on the new menu at this JBR favourite. We’re hungry thinking about it.
Where: Hilton Dubai Jumeirah, JBR
Il Brunch Italiano
Gorging on dish after dish of Italian food is a challenge, but we’re not scared of copius carbs. From AED250.
When: Friday 12.30-4pm
