American breakfast platter

Weekly Planner: What’s on the Agenda for July 4-10

This is how we’re cooling off.


If you’re celebrating USA Independence Day, embrace all things stars and stripes with an all-American feast (priced at AED 229 for two people) at Dubai’s original smokehouse, Perry & Blackwelder. Leave your diet at home and prepare to chow down on American favourites including Red, White, and Blue Cheese Chicken Wings; Empire State Sliders; Memphis Baby Back Ribs; Coney Island Hotdogs; Lady Liberty’s Shrimp Salad; New York Baked Cheesecake; Toffee Apples; and Red, White, and Blueberry Pie – all while rocking out to rock classics at this Souk Madinat Jumeirah hotspot.

Call 800 666 353 to book.


We all could do with a lot more beauty sleep, so we’ll be booking ourselves in for the glorious summer deal by Hilton Dubai Jumeirah and beauty communications agency TishTash to treat ourselves to some well-earned pampering. Following last year’s sold-out staycation, Beauty Sleep 2021 offers a one-of-a-kind staycay experience where every beauty-loving guest is gifted a gorgeous self-care box containing goodies from Neal’s Yard Remedies, Bath and Body Works, and sustainable beauty e-tailer Secret Skin worth AED 350.

Priced from AED 650 per room per night including breakfast, this unique overnight indulgence is available from now until it sells out!


If you’re looking for a healthier way to hang out with your friends, check out the new Pilates discounts from Nightingale at Gold & Diamond Park. Every Tuesday, it’s offering 25% off a range of classes for ladies, making it the perfect excuse for a fitness-focused get-together. Gather your besties and book a class for two at just AED 187.50 or a group class for up to five of your favourite people for an amazing AED 375. Each 45-minute session is hosted at Nightingale Clinic in the Gold & Diamond Park by Pilates instructor and physiotherapist, Roxanne Francis. 

To book, contact [email protected] or 800 UAE.


What has proved to be a seriously exciting Euro 2020 has just a week to go – and if missing a match is a non-negotiable, head down to one of our favourite spots to watch the rest of the football action. Hosting until July 11, La Baie Lounge at The Ritz-Carlton Dubai has been transformed into the most glamorous sporting hub on Jumeirah Beach, with enhanced viewings across six large screens alongside a four-metre mega screen at the adults’ only pool. With a specially crafted burger menu, limited match time offers, and an extensive hubbly bubbly selection to be enjoyed poolside on offer, you can snap up the amazing bucket deal of AED 99 for four bottles of hops or a burger-and-hop combo for AED 99.

With an AED 200 per person minimum spend on Cabana, call 04 318 6150 or e-mail [email protected].


We love hanging out in the eclectic and artsy parts of Al Quoz, so we’ll be heading for an end-of-the-week lunch at Cassette in The Courtyard. Launched this month, its first summer menu has a ‘cooling’ twist, working with seasonal ingredients to craft a delicious range of cold dishes – each created by classically trained Chef Shaunne in tribute to the rich and multicultural bistros of Paris – to beat the heat in the most delicious way possible.

Available until July 15, from Sunday to Thursday at Cassette, The Courtyard. 


Fancy a fancy family daycay? Then head to Bab Al Shams for a luxe getaway this Friday. Soak up the sun and the amazing views by the resort’s family and kids pools followed by a laidback lunch at Al Forsan Garden, where a delish array of fabulous food awaits. Priced AED 400 for adults and AED 200 for children, with kids under four going free.

Call 04 809 6194 to book.


If you’re all about self-love this weekend, this is a treat you simply cannot afford to miss – and it’s a steal, too. The Summer Stay & Spa offer at Bonnington JLT offers brilliant value for money, giving you 50% off a full-body massage and a luxury Dermalogica facial at female-only Le Michel Spa when you book a single room for AED 299 or a double room for AED 349 per night. There’s also a complimentary upgrade to the Deluxe Room, use of hotel facilities, and a full Irish breakfast the following day to look forward to.

To book, call 04 356 0000.
