Man-about-town and designer Hatem Alakeel calls Dubai and Jeddah ‘home’, so we decided to pick his brain about the best spots in both cities.
Hatem Alakeel, designer of the popular Saudi brand Toby, spends a lot of time entertaining. For that reason, we asked him to reveal his selection of the region’s top restaurants, lounge spots, and places to get pampered. When he’s not introducing Christian Louboutin to the spectacular view of the fountains at the Palace Downtown Dubai, you might find him relaxing at Jetty Lounge or enjoying a delectable steak at Fogueira. Sneak a peek at Hatem Alakeel’s Little Black Book of addresses and all the spots he loves to visit and enjoy in the gallery above.
