What To Do In The UAE This Weekend?

Arty movies, community races and fancy French dining al fresco…another Gaggler-approved Dubai weekend beckons…


The region’s first arthouse cinema, Cinema Akil, is taking over The Yard at AlSerkal with a series of socially-distanced outdoor movie screenings. Featuring a line-up of arthouse classics, including this weekend’s must-see, Federico Fellini’s classic La Dolce Vita, screenings take place on Friday, Saturday and Wednesday at 7.30 PM. Tickets are priced AED 52.50, and you must pre-book your seat. For more information, visit www.cinemaakil.com


Your sneakers should have seen lots of action already if you’ve been taking part in Dubai Fitness Challenge, but there are plenty more miles to clock up this weekend and beyond! Friday, November 20 sees the Sketchers Performance Run kick off a series of six community races to be held every month at Dubai Ripe Market, near the Dubai Police Academy.

Distance categories range from 2.5km to 10km challenges, giving runners of all abilities and ages the chance to take part. Following a fun route through the academy and the barracks, with no traffic to contend with and marshals throughout the course, it’s a super-safe run for all the family – topped off with medals and t-shirts for all participants. Better still, you get to enjoy a spot of retail therapy at the always-awesome Ripe Market once you’ve crossed the finish line  For more information, visit promosevensports.com 


Why not top off your Saturday with a dreamy dinner date at one of Dubai’s best beach clubs? Launching this weekend, DRIFT Beach Dubai at One&Only Royal Mirage is offering a one of a kind Provencal dining experience, perfectly placed underneath the star-kissed night sky. With a divine French menu on offer, and an array of grape from the region, we can’t think of anywhere else we’d prefer to perfect our knowledge of classic French cuisine. To book, call 04 315 2200 or email: info@driftbeachdubai.com
