4 restaurants to visit in Dubai this week
Arrows and Sparrows
In celebration of its first anniversary, the beloved casual dining hotspot has launched a brand new menu inspired by founders Davron Hamidov and Zee Alikhonov many trips abroad. Our favourite dish on the new menu that was also inspired by customer feedback is the twisted avocado on toast. It is toasted sourdough served with two poached eggs, pistachio guacamole, roasted tomatoes and feta. The moreish dish is topped with za’atar, pomegranate and home-made basil oil – delicious.
When: 8am -10pm, daily

INNER CITY ZOO
It’s been a while since we had a new club to announce in Dubai, so it’s nice to see another new late-night option come to JBR. Armed with a ferocious name, it’s already promising a variety of wild nights in its edgy, honeycomb-style interior. Resident DJs Emma Love and Henry X take to the decks Monday to Friday, flipping between house and RnB, while there are a number of themed nights to dive into: Inner City Sass ladies night on Tuesdays, something called Immoral on Fridays and, on a similar note, Scandal on Saturdays.
Where: Rixos Premium Dubai, JBR
