8 things to do in Dubai this week



It’s quite a week, with the new Mission Impossible movie hitting the big screen, not to mention a generous ladies night and a huge ‘house party’. If weeknight partying isn’t your thing, there’s plenty more to keep you occupied, with pilates, sealife, art and tapas…

Cinema – Mission Impossible, Rogue Nation

Tom Cruise is back as Ethan Hunt, this time trying to stamp out a highly organised rogue organisation. Cruise – who is famed for doing all his own stunts – can be seen clinging to the side of a military plane flying 5,000ft above the British countryside in the above clip. Yikes!

Monday Ladies Night – Nippon Bottle Company
Mondays can be spent hidden away from the world with your closest friends at the Nippon Bottle Company’s ladies night. Venture behind the bookcase, and settle down to a free bottle of sparkling or selected grape.
Dusit Thani Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road,

Pilates – Mojo
This is not your average pilates class – at Mojo they fuse traditional pilates with dynamic strength training for a full body workout, synchronised to the latest tunes. You’ll also be using the latest Allegro 2 reformer machines, and can treat yourself to a healthy juice or smoothie from the juice bar.

Tuesday Tapas – El Sur

A delicious mix, with small nibbles such as Manchego cheese, and slightly larger dishes like beef stew with tomato sauce and broken eggs with chorizo – we recommend that you order them all. With this Tuesday offer you can enjoy six tapas dishes for AED195, with unlimited house grape.

Art – Opera Gallery
Keep creatively hydrated through the quiet summer months with a downpour of mixed artists and styles at Opera Gallery. Work from old greats like Pablo Picasso is among paintings from newer artistic heavyweights such as graffiti artist SEEN.

Wednesday Ladies Night – Toko
Gone are the days when ladies night offers were exclusive to cheap grape. Toko gives the girls a generous four cocktails and 30 percent off food from 6pm to 8pm. The ‘izakaya-style’ restaurant in Downtown Dubai is an ideal Wednesday after work hangout. When the weather gets cooler, there’s a fantastic terrace to drink in the views.

Attractions with Dubai Summer Pass

Many Dubai Mall devotees will be used to passing the odd shark on a Saturday shopping trip, but the constant crowds outside Dubai Aquarium show what a marvel it is – the ten million litre tank is home to a whopping 30,000 animals. This is one of the star attractions on Dubai Summer Pass, which includes discount vouchers for Reel Cinemas, Sega Republic and Dubai Ice Rink to name just a few.
The Dubai Summer Pass includes cinema passes, sega republic credits, ice skating and more for AED250. Visit

Zero Gravity House Party
Zero Gravity has added a serious evening brunch contender into the mix with its Thursday evening house party. The canapé-style dishes all have a home cooked theme, so expect cottage pie, beef sliders, chicken tortilla wraps, and quinoa salad in nibble form. Drinks are served from pop-up bars and serving stations adding to the house party vibe. AED295 inclusive of food and drinks, from 8pm to 11pm.
