6 things to do in Dubai this week



Get your teeth (literally) stuck in to these dining offers at Pizza Express and El Sur. There’s also a night out for the ladies, plenty of laughs at laughter factory, gripping new films and the cinema and loads of discounts at Dubai Shopping Festival.

Jazz at Pizza Express
If live jazz music isn’t enough to drag you along to pizza express then the two for one deal will. It’s buy one get a second free on everything – starters, pizzas, pastas, drinks, desserts. It either makes for an extremely cheap night out or an overindulgent one, the choice if yours.
When: Mondays from 7pm
Where: Pizza Express, JLT, +971 4 441 6342,

Tapas Night at El Sur
A delicious mix of Spanish favourites, 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 AED249, along with unlimited house grape.
When: Tuesdays
Where: The Westin, +971 399 7700,

EnVii at the Greenhouse
If you haven’t been to Vii yet, we suggest to rectify the situation, quickly. The venue is like a mystical secret garden amongst Dubai’s concrete skyscrapers. Every Tuesday ladies receive two complementary drinks of their choice to get the night started.
When: Tuesdays, 8pm to 11pm, +971 050 169 6777,
Where: Vii Dubai, Conrad Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road

The Laughter Factory

When: Wednesday January 13, 8pm,

The Revenant (18)
Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Grizzly Adams-like tale, starring Leonardo Di Caprio, Tom Hardy and Domhnall Gleeson, has already had the seal of approval from critics and filmgoers – it currently has 8.2 on imdb and 83% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film focuses on the truish story of Hugh Glass, who in the 1820s sought vengeance on John Fitzgerald, the man who killed his son and, following a bear attack, left Glass for dead.
