Tania's Tea House Café view

Weekly Planner: What’s On The Agenda for June 27 – July 3

What are you doing with yourself this week?


This is a great date night deal if ever we saw one. Head to Mandarin Oriental Jumeirah’s gorgeous beachside brasserie Duo by The Bay from Sunday to Wednesday, and you and your SO can enjoy an exclusive dinner for two, choosing from a succulent steak or sea bass, two side dishes, two desserts, and a bottle of red or white for just AED 395 for two. Incredible!

From 6:30-11pm, call 04 777 2222 to book.  


It was crowned the ‘7th Most Instagrammable Cafe in the World’ and, to celebrate its 3rd anniversary, Tania’s Teahouse has undergone a mega birthday makeover. With a full interior and menu revamp – including new décor in a more muted pastel-toned palette, a flower-spurting teapot over the front door, and its iconic frame-adorned marble staircase featuring new art – there’s a host of photo opportunities in every corner of the pink and pretty Jumeirah hangout, as well as lots of delish new dishes to try. We’ll be making the most of our Monday by bagging one of the cute new upstairs booths and slowly working our way through the menu.  


In a first of its kind, PR and communications agency TishTash is hosting ‘It’s a Girl Thing Period’, a one-day virtual event designed to tackle the taboo issues of menstrual and feminine health for women of every age and stage of life. Featuring a back-to-back schedule of interactive sessions from 9am through to 8:30pm, the day will focus on all aspects of menstrual, womb, and vaginal health issues to help females of any age, with expert input and discussions covering yoga, the environment, fertility and infertility, perimenopause, period poverty, nutrition, and womb-healing meditation, as well as an expert Q&A session with a leading gynaecologist. 

Free to attend and open to everyone, participants can dip in and out of the daily sessions as they wish. Register at tishtash.com


Fancy a self-care daycation? Swissôtel Al Ghurair’s wellness-focused Vitality Daycation offer is just the thing for nourishing mind, body, and soul. Truly amazing value for money, The Vitality Daycation package includes a full day of gym and pool access along with a two- or three-course lunch menu, with prices starting at just AED 55 for two courses and AED 65 for three courses. Better still, the hotel’s spa is offering 50 percent off all treatments, including an array of dreamy Anne Semonin beauty-boosting treats – running from now till the end of summer.

Call 04 293 3183 or e-mail [email protected].


Kick off the weekend early with a seriously savvy deal from Adagio Premium The Palm, available from Sunday to Saturday between 9am and 7pm. For just AED 120, you’ll get a Beach Day Pass fully redeemable against F&B from Dubai’s newest cycling-inspired Fixie Cafe (which boasts an array of salads, super-healthy main courses and detox juices and smoothies) right on the 250-metre beach.

To book, call 04 2813 813, e-mail [email protected], or visit www.adagio-city.com


Chilling out of a weekend is a must when it’s crazy hot, so we’re loving the launch of Palm Jumeirah favourite Riva Beach Clu’s brand new Friday brunch. Maximising the allure of Riva’s 300-metre pristine beach and temperature-controlled pool, from 1pm to 4pm, guests can tuck into a delish three course-set menu served directly to the table, along with a special kids menu for mini-brunchers.

Starting from AED 199 per person with soft drinks, AED 399 per person with house drinks, and AED 99 for kids aged 4-12, call 04 430 9466 or e-mail [email protected].


The city’s newest shopping destination is hosting one of our favourite home-grown shopping events for summer. Taking place the first Saturday of the month from now until October on the ground floor, Ripe Market’s monthly pop-up will take up residence at Circle Mall, running from 10am to 7pm. Expect the same brilliant curation of  over 20 homegrown fashion, food, and homeware retailers featuring a variety of fresh produce, dining delights, and unique products at Jumeirah Village Circle’s long-awaited shopping hotspot.
