As another weekend approaches, here we all are frantically planning what to do to make the most of it. Well, you needn’t fret this weekend, as our Creative Team have come up with some of the best things Dubai has to offer to keep you busy! Plus, all of the following locations are of course on your ENTERTAINER, so you’re going to be able to have fun for half the price!
So, what do our Creative Team think you should do this weekend?
Thursday (evening – it counts, right?)
The Grape Escape, Hilton Dubai The Walk – Our office foodie, Arabic Copywriter Ali, explains just how The Grape Escape is the ideal spot to relax in: ‘Tucked away in Hilton Dubai The Walk, The Grape Escape is the ultimate sanctuary for lovers looking for a cozy place to engage in a long romantic conversation over a glass of “grape”. The small and calm place offers a selection of drinks and tapas, accompanied by a fresh display of fine cheese and charcuterie (cold cuts). Escape the city’s hype to a dimly-lit lounge with an ambient music that whispers the warm leather interiors, creating a charming and home-like atmosphere’. Oh, we want to go now!
Après, Mall of the Emirates – Wandering around the mall and need to make a quick pit stop? Try Après, one of our Creative Executive’s top picks: Eudaliya loves the excellent quality food with perfect views over Ski Dubai. And you will too!
Wild Wadi, Jumeira Road – Junior Copywriter Schweta advises opting for a thrill! ‘Head to Wild Wadi to try the infamous Jumeirah Sceirah. You go as fast as 80kmh!’
Burger Joint, CityWalk – Senior Graphic Designer Mudassir knows the BEST place to grab a juicy burger, AND keep the kids entertained: ‘Burger Joint is one of my favorite spots for lunch at the weekends – my kids love to write on the restaurant walls’.
Trattoria Toscana, Souk Madinat Jumeirah – Creative Director, Sarah, recommends everyone should dine at gorgeous eatery Trattoria Toscana – and this is why: ‘One of my favourite places to visit on a Friday evening is Trattoria Toscana, as it’s just simply stunning sitting by the waterfront in Souk Madinat Jumeirah. Although a little too hot to sit outside at the moment, make sure you book in when it gets a bit cooler, and watch the boats go by! You almost feel as though you are in Venice!’ We’re sold!
Ruth’s Chris Steak House, The Address Dubai Marina – Creative (and us!) also want to take this opportunity to let you know how excited we are to have Ruth’s Chris Steak House on the App now – another fab one to check out this weekend is their Friday Brunch: succulent steaks and mouth-watering sides… Mmm.
Natureland Spa Premium, Rixos Premium Hotel – Sarrah, the Digital Process Manager in our Creative Team, loves to get revitalised and ready for the week ahead at Natureland Spa Premium, so why not add this to your Saturday afternoon list?
Hub Zero, CityWalk – Creative Lead Designer Saaniya was full of so many amazing ideas! One of our favourites includes Hub Zero, which is a great place to vent, especially before going back to work on Sunday. You can shoot zombies, jump on thrilling rides, and play laser tag!
The Green Planet, CityWalk – Aaron, our super talented Copywriter (and rapper of the famous hip hop group, The Recipe) , is also a huge fun of Hub Zero, and thinks you should combine a day there with Green Planet – ‘I’m a fan of Green Planet, followed by Hub Zero. Two great places in one venue. It’s fun as you can jump into two different worlds. One being a jungle, and the other being virtual’. Why not be like Aaron and mix things up this Saturday?! (P.S. you can watch a great video of Green Planet right here!)
Reform Social & Grill, The Lakes – For a sociable Saturday, catch up with friends at Reform Social & Grill, as advised by Junior Graphic Designer Mark – think hearty roast dinners and divine desserts!
Phew – thanks Creative Team! I guess all you need to decide now is, where are you going to go first? Wherever you choose, we hope you have a fab weekend!
